Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things I do to distract myself

Sometimes it helps to know what your doing to distract yourself. So I made
myself a list.

1.... RPOL
It is an online roleplaying site where you can play by post. Its a great site lots
of different games and gaming systems. There are tons of ways to distract
yourself here.

2.... Chatting with friends
Just chatting back and forth with friend by instant messager when I should be
doing something more.

3.... Facebook
A bigger time sink I don't think you will find.

4.... Surfing the Web
Just randomly surfing the web and seeing where I end up and what I find.

5.... Reading a Book
While it's important to read and reading is a good thing, sometime I do it to
avoid doing something I should be.

6.... Watching TV / Movies
A close second to facebook is the idiot box. It has the magical ability to suck
time away from you without you even noticing if your not careful.

7.... Video Games
These team up with the idiot box only they offer more interactivity

8.... Blogging
I enjoy blogging and it is a wonderful writing exercise, there have been times
when I have written a blog article instead of working on a project like I should

9.... Online Games
Stupid little flash games, for the most part am good at avoiding them.

10... E-mails
Checking my e-mails, many times a day in hopes of finding something interest

11... Read How to's
Am a big fan of how to's and I even read them for the most part too.

12... Make to Do lists
When I start working on things the first thing I do is make a list of things that
need to be done.

13... House work
ok I really don't do this to distract myself, but I needed a 13th thing

Sounds a lot like the things I do. Change RPG for Pogo and thats me.

Great list! I've always said if I spent as much time exercising as I do distracting myself, I'd be a size 0!!
Happy TT!

We're lucky to live in a time when there ARE so many things we can do to distract ourselves. Lord knows we need it with all the stress we have today.
