Sharpening my weapons ( or in case it's a wooden weapon, sand or oil it ), play video games, practice Taekwondo, Swordfight ( with wasters of course ), sleep, chatting, play drum, lock myself on my room and pretend to be akon, making weapons, read comics, watch anime, the simpsons or monk, and watching YouTube AMVs ( Anime music videos ).

Hehehehe... I very briefly got into Akon because I heard "Locked Up" and was like holy crap a rapper/hip-hop musician who can actually sing... didn't last long though.

I presume you've seen I wish I was a lesbian, best AMV ever...

Walk around in circles. Think. Design stuff. Design some more stuff. Wonder who in the world would use the stupid stuff I'm designing.

I honestly can't remember the last time I was bored. Boredom is a luxury of the lazy and the stupid.

Build crap. My property is coverd in crap I built when I was bored. I could probably sell most of it, but trying to sell it is boring, and we all know where that leads... two more inventions have been built by the time I sell one.

I build electronics, or if I've ran out of stuff to do (waiting for stuff in the mail) I watch TV. I've always wondered what normal people do, I asked 2 girls (they go to the high school with me for math) and they say they read, exciting.
