Being a member of the support team here, I'll use the site when I'm bored to help people if they need it, move threads to the right place and chat with others. Works wonders! I also like to listen to lots of music, really improves my mood.

Right im back again!

When im bored i like to fire up the xbox and just go mad on some games i like to play!
Also music is a good one but that just gives me loads of energy
Motorsport never fails to make me happy, i love it!
But TSR is probably one of the best ways anyone can cure boredom! Its just so fun and full of nice friendly people! It really is a nice place to be!

Normally, I am doing so much that boredom has no chance to touch me. I can do a lot of hobbies in my free time to prevent that my life gets boring. And even if it should be bored, I have always a lot of books to read to pass time.*

I try and do as many courses online as I can find and literally go down the list pick one or two and then work through the units/modules or I grab my kindle and get reading books. i have a lot of books I am going to read so I am going to set myself a goal to read 35 books one year, complete my novel and do my a-levels (English literature, Psychology and ELLA) & and I am also working towards my degree.

So, you are just using TSR when you got bored? As I see you quite often on TSR, does that mean you are bored usually?*

No, of course not! Just when I am bored, I never have an excuse because Chat (the area I mod) is verrrrrryyyyy busy :afraid:. So essentially, I always have something to keep me occupied.

I see. It is like when mother or father said to you to clear your chaotic room up, if you have nothing to spend time with (because of boredom), right?

Oh, as you are a moderator: Can you tell why are there stars in my comments, although I am not writing them? is that a glitch by any chance? *

Sort of like that, yes!

I wish I could. They plague us all at the moment, on random occasions too… I do believe they're a bug, yes.*

It's been noted by the development team! Trust me, they're working on fixing it. They're very busy people!

Ah, no. I wouldn't do that.

I focus my attention on my music, writing letters, reading lots of books and of course writing my novel

If you have a good book, you will never be bored. So, I read a good book!

So true, so true. Agree with you without a contradiction. I hope that books will never be replaced by electronics (E-book for instance) completely.

Ugh yes, I hate e-books. Though I do feel guilty, thinking about all those trees!

But surely if books go to ebooks, we will be saving trees
