Stuff to do when you’re bored

Pa’no ba ‘yan… wala na naman mga bossing namin. Naglalaro na naman ang mga daga.

Pero ewan ko ba bakit naubusan ako ng gagawin ngayon. As in! Kanina lang nakabukas lang ang IE at nasa google lang ako. Nag-iisip kung ano ba ang ita-type ko sa google search box or sa URL. Ilang minuto or kalahating oras din un. Dahil wala akong maisip, inayos ko muna ang mga printout reports ko, at nag-file.

Pagkatapos, upo na naman, nakatitig sa harap ng PC. Ayokong buksan ang friendster ko kasi na-check ko kaninang tanghali. Wala naman ding new messages kasi naka-online ako sa YM, kung sakaling may bagong message malalaman ko naman. Ang YM walang kwenta, wala ang mga friends sa oras ng matinding pagka-bored. Tapos na din akong mag-bloghopping, kakapagod din eh. Google na naman ang na-i-type ko. At kapag ganitong bored na bored talaga. Ewan ko ba pero ang palagi kong naita-type sa search box ay:

What to do when you’re bored

Syempre naman kung anu-ano na ang lalabas na results. Anjan ang (na pinagsawaan ko na – kasi hindi din naman nakakaalis ng pagka-bored), at ang I am Bored dot com. Eto ang bago kong nakita at pwede mo ding gawin:


Blink wildly and then close your eyes really tight for an interesting light show
(Amusement Potential: 1-5 minutes)
See a variety of blobs, stars and flashes. Try to make out shapes and see if your subconscious is trying to send you a message

See how long you can hold a note
(Amusement Potential: 4-20 minutes)
Not that much fun, but it sure passes the time. Play with a friend, or try to beat your own personal best. Inhale deeply and then try and make a noise for as long as you can. Earn extra points for making your partner laugh or ending on an amusing note.

Try to not think about penguins
(Amusement Potential: 1-5 minutes)
This is especially hard, because by trying too much, you remember what you were trying to avoid thinking of. If you try too little, you end up thinking about penguins anyway.

Use your secret mind power
(Amusement Potential: 5-10 minutes)
Pick a passing by and try to use your mind power to command them do something, like drop their bag or knock into someone. The law of averages dictates that sooner or later one of your mind commands will come true, so you can convince yourself that you really have super human powers and waste even more time trying them out.

Pretend you’re a robot
(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes)
Walk down the street with mechanical movements, adding ‘zzzzzt’ sounds with each motion. Pretending to have a motor broken in, say, your left hand can add at least 30 seconds more entertainment.

Scratch yourself
(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes)
Go ahead, scratch yourself now. Even if nothing itches, go ahead. Doesn’t that feel pretty good? (Parang timang naman ‘toh!)

Hurt yourself
(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes)
What is pain? Why is it unpleasant? There’s nothing physical about it – it’s all in your mind. Plus, after pinching yourself for awhile, boredom will seem nice next to being in pain.

Try to swallow your tongue
(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes)
There’s not much to say about this one. It is possible, but really stupid.

Look at something for awhile, shut eyes, study after image
(Amusement Potential: 2-5 minutes)
Another great time waster. It takes about 30 seconds of staring to create an after image, and the image is then viewable for about the same length of time. Fun to combine this one with pushing on your eyes.

Syempre hindi ko na nilagay lahat ng nabasa ko kasi masyado namang marami. Parang di ko yata magagawa lahat ng ‘yan ah. At least mejo may napaglibangan lang akong basahin kahit papa’no.

disclaimer: gawain ng mga baliw na walang magawa ang mga iyan kaya kung baliw ka gawin mo din ng may magawa ka naman.
