    I'm asking because, right now I am suffering from "Why is the summer so long and there's nothing to do" syndrome :wink:

    I will usually play games, but I feel like there's nothing interesting left to play, or that i've played them all too much.

    So what do you guys do to relieve boredom when you're.. well, bored I guess?

    Well, you need to get off your phone for like a week and build something with your hands or play some sports for at least 4-5 hours a day.

    I don't use my phone, I have a computer for that ;)
    And uh, do what? How? Where?
    It's not like I can go "okay lets play sports" and just start playing some game by myself.

    Way too many video games from different generations and genres to play to ever be bored of playing them.

    But then I don't like around 60% of them, and don't have consoles for a large amount, and the rest probably cost a ton.

    Basically the idea is that you need to disconnect from technology and you'll figure out something to do after a few hours or a day.

    But I don't.
    I just get extremely bored, and usually sleep for hours on end even in the daytime.
    And even then, there is nothing for me to do. Nothing. Anywhere.

    So after staying like that for a week or two, something will hit you and figure out what to do. But stay off technology, that's important.

    All I have ever learned merely served to show how much more that there is to learn, it is probably a futile task but I am going for completion.

    Failing that there are a lot of things out there in the world. Pulling them apart is usually pretty safe and interesting.

    I was going to say play some games, but then I read the OP.
    Idk, watch anime, play games WITH FRIENDS.
    Hang out with friends maybe?
    Get a job? Start earning some money to buy more games in the future.

    Idk, there's a lot to do imo. If you're lacking people for the 2nd suggestion, hmu.

    Everyone keeps talking about friends, so let me ask this, what are these "friends" things you speak of?

    ^This is me right now.
    In all seriousness, I don't actually have friends atm, school has ended so we've all gone our seperate ways. In Spetember i'll go to college which'll be a fresh start and hopefully a new set of friends :3
