Over the past couple of months, we’ve all gotten very annoyed, impatient, and bored. In fact, I’m so bored, I would bet money that I’m more bored than you. Just kidding… somewhat. Anyway, here’s a list of the top ten things I’ve done out of pure boredom, ranging from something I’d most likely do on a normal day to what I’d least likely do.
10. Baked Chocolate Chip Scones
For all of you that hate on stress baking, why? You get to waste two hours watching bread rise, eat all of it as soon as it comes out of the oven, and then complain about how you burned your fingers for the next three hours.
9. Contemplated Sewing a Skirt
I thought about it, and then I figured I’d better wait until May or June for that one.
8. Created Useless Decorations Out of Cardboard
I looked on Pinterest for 30 minutes and still could not find something useful to do with a cardboard circle, so I made this masterpiece instead. It belongs to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
7. Practiced on Duolingo
The app doesn’t know I’m in Spanish III, so I feel pretty smart when it asks me how to say “My name is…” in Spanish.
6. Done My Optional History Homework
You know you have nothing to do when you turn in your optional homework on time. That, and when you start to look up synonyms for bored on Thesaurus.com.
5. Learned Taylor Swift Songs on the Piano
I’ve never had a single lesson in my entire life and I probably have the fingerings wrong, but at least I know what the songs are supposed to sound like.
4. Played With Sidewalk Chalk
You’d be surprised how long it takes to draw twenty-one rainbows on the street in front of your house.
3. Tried to Help My Family Complete a Puzzle
The keyword is “tried.” I realized after about five minutes that my skills could be better used elsewhere.
2. Drew the Unit Circle
You read that right. Instead of creating flashcards, I drew out the entire Unit Circle, complete with color-coded numbers.
1. Done the Dishes Everyday
That’s right, baby. Guess who’s getting the Daughter of the Year Award now.
Here’s one bonus I forgot to mention earlier: I took all the pictures for this article. All seven photos, with my own phone.
