    read a good book but don't waste time.

    when time has passed, it has gone forever, you can never catch up.
    Who cares what you do? As long as you enjoy it, it isn't wasting time.

    How about trying different things and finding which ones you prefer?

    Or you could just see how many threads you can post in on TSR haha

    I'm going to be blunt with you: get a life. The overall impression that you make is that you're restricting yourself to a small number of things that you think you should enjoy but, in reality, you don't.

    Join a book club, and make friends while you're at it. Watch TV, if there's something on that you like -- don't try to force yourself to not like things that you consider a waste of time. As for using computers: you've already shown that you don't mind wasting time in that area, so you might as well let yourself enjoy it.

    But more than anything: get a life. If you're bored all the time, then you obviously have too few long-term commitments.

    Yes I am we all have our childish side whether its colouring in or something else.I tried painting the other night (watercolour)however it is hard to have a consistant colour as its hard to create it twice.I don't know what to do I have some essays to write but I need to first do something recreational for me to be able and focus.I am under a lot of stress at this moment the doctor suggested for me to do relaxing activities.Do you have any suggestions?Without the computer and tv I mean tv and computer is good but then you get at a point when it is no longer enough.Please stop with these comments because age is just a number nothing else.
    Have you considered trying to start a long-term project like learning a language or gardening or painting, or an online course on a free MOOC? These things require some motivation and persistence but they're something you can work on regularly for a long period of time and can definitely motivate you because you feel like you're doing something worth while, and they're not stressful either. Also, please ignore Hydeman's comments, he clearly has only come here to put people down.

    You're out proselytising, I see. I thought you only indulged your '***** about Hydeman behind his back' hobby on weekdays? :rolleyes:

    It's made all the more ironic when you're repeating my advice about long-term commitments and then asking the OP to ignore it:

    Nice to see that you're at least attempting to rationalise your silly personal grudge towards me. Mature.

    At least you're motivated, try picking up something you can do alone like an instrument. There are tons of online resources to get you started as well if you don't want to commit to getting a teacher.

    Just dont do something useless like sitting around playing video games. Do something productive and educational like learning a language or reading books etc. Also go outside and exercise, you said you love to cycle, get a bike then and go jogging etc.
