What to Do When You Are Bored




These are a couple of my favourite things to do when I'm bored. I'm kind of an electronics geek and a major computer geek, so not all of these will appeal to everybody. P.S I'm not in any of these pictures!!

Step 1: Computer Stuff

This is a compilation of stuff on a computer that you can do.

1. Flash games
These are not favoured by me because I think they are a waste of time. Plus, if I wanted to, I could just make my own. But for the people who do like them, these are some of the better sites.


2. Making your own Game
This sounds complicaated, but it's really not all that difficult. First, you download Game Maker. Preferably Game Maker 7, the latest one. Next, well it should give you some instructions and from there it's all you. Use your imagination.

3. Writing Your own program
This one is pretty complicated unless your a bit of a computer geek (like me!!). But if you really wanted to make your own, you can email me and I can give you some instruction in this process.

Have Fun. (Like these Guys!!)

Step 2: Get Lost (Literally)

Take a hike, go out with some friends and go camping. Being out in the bush is another one of my favourite pasttimes (I'm in scouts)especially winter camping. If you've never gone camping before, it's pretty easy. Just make sure you follow these rules:

Rule 1: Travel Light!!
This is the biggest rule, do NOT pack too much, you still need to leave room for food, leave anything unneccesary at home or put it in your pocket, don't bring anything big and bulky either, besides your clothes and sleeping bag, which take up most of your backpack space.

Rule 2: Do something
Once you get to your planned campsite, there's going to be work to get done, like digginng out a fire pit, building a shelter, lean-to, or snow quinzee, building a fire geting firewood, getting bigger logs, heating water etc. DO NOT just laze around, it's not going to do itself (although I don't expect you to think it will!!)LOL

Rule 3: Have fun with it
Even though it's alot of work, enjoy youreslf, try to do something fun in between work, like bring a toboggan and go down a hill or go swimming.

Step 3: Play Nerf!!!

Isn't it fun shooting things and being violent?? Well you can now do this painlessly (and more importantly cheaply), with nerf. These are basically airsoft guns with not as much power, and they shoot little foam darts with plastic heads. There is a nerf gun for everyone. Pistols, rifles, snipers, night vision, and even new Nerf swords. This is my gun, and these are other nerf guns. So get a few friends, and START KILLING EACH OTHER!!

Step 4: Conclusion

So, next time youre bored, do one of these things, and then you won't be bored(Mind Boggling, Right!!) Please be easy on me as this is my first instructable. And, for the record, I'm not gay because I put that picture on there.

Have fun!!
