So you are sick and have taken a few days off work, your friend or boyfriend has ditched you for the day and you do not have a plan B, your vacation plans feel flat but you still have the time off, you are out of a job and you are sitting at home not knowing what to do, you just do not feel like going out and want to stay home, you do not have enough money to head out and a lot of other things that make you stay at home. The bottom line is that you are home and wondering what you can do to not get bored. You do not always have to get bored when you are sitting at home. There are so many things that you can do to make your time fun and also productive. Stop moping around the house and try out these fun ways to spend time when you are alone at home.
1.Paint: You can fancy yourself to be an artist and paint on a canvas or you can just make your bare walls your canvas. It is your place and you can feel free to paint whatever you want to. Sometimes your walls may actually need a coat of paint and you can finally get it done or you can make it fun and just get a mural done. Take all the things that interest you and put it up on the wall. You can even name it.
2.Get into photography: You do not need to be a photographer to try out taking a few pictures. You also do not have to have a great camera. You can use your camera phone or just a point and shoot. You will be amazed at the number of interesting things you can shoot in your house. You can also set up a small studio or get props to make the photo shoot something resembling of a professional shoot.
3.Start writing: There is a writer in every one of us. Good or bad, it is not for us to decide or for that matter others. You can write about anything. You can write a novel, a short story, a work of fiction or even your autobiography. If you do not plan to publish it, add as many as salacious details as you can. This also gives you the freedom to bitch about people you cannot stand.
4.Rearrange your wardrobe: Go through your wardrobe. Take them all out. You will find new things to wear as well as find out new combinations to try on. Bring out the old clothes from the attic too. Fashion is all about recycling. You will end up with a lot of new/old clothes to wear when you go out later. Model your clothes. This just takes up your time and you will enjoy trying out all your old clothes. You can maybe even laugh at some of the odd fashion choices you had made over the years.
5.Try a really complicated dish: Try cooking something really complicated. Try to get it right as there are few things in life that can match the joy of getting a complicated dish right the first time.
These are the fun ways to spend your time when home alone.
