Go-To Things To Do When You're Bored

Because when you're bored, it's the hardest to come up with things to do.

Go-To Things To Do When You're Bored

Throughout your life, no matter what season it is, you get extremely bored. When you're bored, you tend to not be able to think of things to do. Here are some go to things to do when you're extremely bored. Even if you don't feel like doing some of them, they'll probably be good for you, whether it's on the inside or the outside.

1. Take a nap.

You could probably catch up on some sleep anyways, so why not do it while you have nothing else to do.

2. Read a book.

Reading is good for your brain, and while reading, you may be inspired by the story and do whatever they're doing! Then you won't be bored anymore!

3. Get together with friends.

Whether it's just one or many, a friend can always make your life more interesting.

4. Start a new Netflix series.

There are so many different Netflix shows out right now you could spend your life watching them.

5. Color a picture.

It might turn out ugly, but who cares because it might not!

6. Buy a fish and watch it.

Fish are the least expensive most hassle free living beings; just don't forget to feed it.

7. Text or call an old friend.

They probably miss you and you know you miss them.

8. Go for a walk.

Get off the couch, breathe in some fresh air, clear your head, and get those steps in!

9. Take a shower.

Because you probably smelled bad anyways.

10. Do a craft.

Get creative and get your brain juices flowing. Draw, paint, or get messy with some glitter glue!

11. Give a friend a "just because" present.

Make their day more exciting than yours is!

12. Send a friend a letter in the mail.

It's really not that hard or expensive to do. Plus when they get it two to three days later and ask you about it, it'll be a funny surprise reminder to you, too.

13. Brush your teeth.

You can never brush your teeth too many times.

14. Eat a snack.

Because snacks are always good.

15. Clean.

Come on, you know it's not humanly possible for every single thing you own to be clean and organized.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.


Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.
