    When I am not in class or at work, or if it's my day off, I never know what to do with myself except for go to the gym for some exercise. I usually end up picking up extra shifts at work so I'm not bored lol.

    What do you do?

    I meet up with a drawing group once a week for some doodling and socialising. I also go to the gym, sauna and the beach. icon_cool.gif not necessarily in that order.

    I work for myself, in the light of that I don't realy have free time. However when I get it I love to spend time in my garden. I like all the big trees and the sun. I also love to go to gym or for a run to work on my cardio training. When I have free time for a week or two I like to travel to Rome or Germany.

    I'm retire, so maybe it's inappropriate - except I did most of the same things when I was working: read, listen to music, go for a walk/run/ski, build something at my cabin, train - when I was a competing athlete... Now I have a car project (restoring a WWII Jeep) and I plan to build a clock in the fall. Travel, see friends...

    Develop and pursue your interests! There's a ton of neat stuff to do in your life! Good luck!

    I argue on the internet with strangers, read the news, watch porn....

    Outside of that I like antique shopping and associated research. Art. Gardening.
    I used to play dungeons and dragons, but that morphed to making video games, and now writing level 5 geocaches (which can take months). I like making the puzzles.

    I don't have as much free time as I used to, but I try to do as much as I can when I have it. I read, go to movies, go to museums, hang out with friends, work out, go for a run, go shopping, take my dog for a walk or to the dog park. I enjoy doing stuff by myself, so I don't feel self-conscious going to a movie alone. Also, lots of people don't have a 9-5 schedule in NY, so it can be easier to spontaneously meet up with friends.

    Although we're both retired, with every day a "day off", we're usually pretty busy. I find it difficult to be idle for even a minute, at least mentally. And being together almost every minute of every day we've got each other for entertainment and stimulation. Although I do sometimes disappear on the bicycle for a little while, or play a little golf, but neither very much these days.

    Our friends, with whom we often have lunch, are kinda amazed when we tell them all we've accomplished in the morning, and still intend to do later in the afternoon and possibly that evening. And yet it appears we're lazy "men of leisure" because our day is somewhat unstructured and we dress like slobs, unless we have to comply with some scheduled commitment or event.

    He's often cooking for hours, and I'm obviously online with social media a lot, that hopefully keeps my mind active. With a large home computer screen I'll have several things going at once on it, including TV news and informational programming. Also writing or editing letters for my husband, doing graphics work (also mostly for him), editing photographs I've taken, answering emails. And when we're out and about I take every opportunity to stay busy on the iPad, for which I added a keyboard.

    But every now and then it's time to take a break, and we run off to Key West, just a 200-mile drive away. Doing almost nothing all day long for a week or more, no cooking and little online time, but being sure to visit friends we have down there. And not too many weeks ago we spent several days at a local gay guest house, just a few blocks away. Refusing the temptation to go home the whole time, and telling friends we'd be incommunicado, ignoring most phone calls.

    Jogging, photography, internet, yardwork, taking a walk around a random downtown I've never visited...
    But mostly, hanging out with friends and going to local events. Tons of activities are advertised on Facebook these days, even in small towns -- street fairs and festivals, classic movie nights, 5k races, etc. Just get on FB and browse the list of upcoming events in your area; you might find a few interesting ones.

    Whenever I'm not working (real estate & investments) I'm busy with the two groups I sing with (My university's symphony chorus, and my Episcopal church chancel choir). I spend a good amount of time with friends going to various things; I work out & swim laps; I run my dog; I do my own garden work & keep my own house; I read a lot, and go to a variety of restaurants and travel too.

    yeah I guess they're shy about it.

    Ummmmm answering messages on my phone (which is really time consuming sometimes), finding some shit to post on instagram, seeing my close friends for drinks, reading books, playing League of Legends, doing facials so I'm not too ugly, going on dates cause that's distracting, ...
    And when I'm reallllly bored : j/o. ;D

    For me, running, watching tons and tons of soccer, with the Euro and Copa America on right now, and watching the Olympic Trials. Beyond that, trying to teach my self anatomy and review all of my science courses.

    I would like to go out more, but there's not a lot of stuff in my town, for gay people at least.

    And jacking off does not get a mention because it's what I do every night.

    I don't have enough free time to masturbate as frequently as I'd like.

    It usually depends on what I'm in the mood for. I love to be out and about,but staying home with some netflix is great. I usually work 10 hour days so trying to do anything afterwards can get tiring.
