How well do you use your free time?


Creeping On You
..::This thread idea has been brought to you by the wonderful brain of Bliss::..

When you have a spare two hours, do you find that you use it to your satisfaction, or do you feel like you're not getting enough out of it?

For myself, sometimes I feel like I'm not doing enough during my free time. I have lots of it now, but I still feel sometimes that I'm wasting it and not taking advantage. Like sometimes, I'll sleep past 8 in the morning. That to me always feels like a waste and that there's better things I could be doing. Or sometimes I spend too much of it watching TV. To me, I consider myself to have spent my free time well if I have some end product to show for it. Maybe a song, a picture, a craft, an object or a piece of writing that I can say I completed and was productive in creating.

What about yourselves? What do you have to have done in order to consider your free time well spent?

I barely get any free time these days due to homework and other commitments but when I do have free time, I play PS3 or watch a movie.


A wasted time for me is when I stay home, watching TV or navigating the internet. If I don't go out with friends/gym/run/shopping ... then anything other than that is a waste of time to me lol.

I don't spend my time well enough. I should start a hobby or something. At the minute I feel as though I sleep, eat and breathe GF. I don't mind it as I enjoy it and to be honest it's because I don't have any money to spare. Everything I enjoy doing costs money.
I go out with my boyfriend/family/friends often enough but after a long day at work I enjoy the company of my boyfriend and laptop haha.
My boyfriend and I are waiting for a game to come out which we're going to play together. We used to game together a lot and I miss it.

Terrible time waster. I sit and chat and click around the computer aimlessly and watch videos about completely random things just because I don't want to do anything else. But I don't really mind because at least I know exactly where I am in life and my main goal at the moment is to do well in school, so if I can accomplish that this coming year then I'm happy. It's not like I'm wasting my whole life away or anything. And I see my friends a lot (since I live with several of them) so it's not like I need to get out of the house a ton and do stuff just to socialize. And I go to the gym about 5 times a week when I'm in that routine, and town a couple times a week, out for the night maybe once a week. It's just all the time in between I'm really lazy. No hobbies at the moment.

I waste time way more than I'd like too.

It's even worse these days because I work so much that by the time I get home I am so tired that I just want to sit around and do nothing. There are times where I'm motivated to move I suppose but they have been few and far between lately.

Work has been rough lately but I've tried to get out and do more lately. Hopefully I can keep that up and also get some stuff done around the house.

I always use my free time on the laptop tbh. I think I use it well and make the most of it because that's my favourite thing to do. :)

Im a massive time waster. Up until about 3 weeks ago I was working 7 days a week. I was always tired but had a big feeling of accomplishment. I get 2 days off of work a week now and I feel like an unproductive loser lol I usually just go out into my woodworking shop and fiddle with scraps getting ideas for new projects.

Spare time is best used, for me, to recharge. It's either a nap, or lying in bed watching a good show, or just sitting by the window having a drink and reflecting about life. I need these pause moments where it doesn't take much effort or I'm just spoiling myself a bit before I go on hyper mode again. I wouldn't call eating a free time because eating is an activity for me that has more involvement than simply stuffing food in my mouth.
