What do you do with your time...

...when you've got nothing to work toward?

Uni is over for the semester and all of my mates, and the girl I've been seeing, have gone on holidays or returned to their family homes for the coming weeks. I've got no work to do and I'm constantly distracted from enjoying anything (guitar, movies, video games, reading) because all I can think about is how much I miss everybody already.

So what do you guys do when you're lonely and you've got absolutely nothing to do?



I mean, obviously you're going to suggest fapping, but that must go without saying by now.

When I was out living alone and away from everyone I knew for 8 months I took up going on longer walks, usually around an hour or so. Really makes you feel better both physically and mentally

Nick Cave was wank.

You're obviously forgetting that Elvis Costello was playing.

It's actually called cranking, and you do it until you crymax.

All I've been doing lately is drinking wine, smoking my pipe and listening to Murder Ballads. And when I say it's all I've been doing, unless you count eating what little I need to sustain life for the time being, staring at facebook, or staring into the void as "doing something," it actually is all I've been doing. I haven't gone a day without a drink in longer than I can remember. Pretty sure it only takes two or three days of heavy drinking for me to forget what year it is, but I'd give it a rough estimate of a month long break from sobriety.

It's been ****ing brilliant, too, but sappyarse syndrome has caught up to me.

I'd being doing this if only I could bring myself to cry. I can't cry because I know I'm just being selfish and melodramatic. Unfortunately, this knowledge doesn't make me feel any better, but it stops me from feeling worse. I'd imagine that cranking/crywanking is about the most cathartic experience you can have, though. I hope to experience it one day.

to be honest I'd be exactly the same as you if I wasn't working right now. I mean I don't mind being lonely sometimes but i'm just a miserable person during the summer in general. just gotta find something to keep me busy so I don't have the luxury of staying up all night pondering my dismal life or whatever


to actually answer your question though: read, work out, and look for restaurants I haven't been to to eat at/review

I'm not sure why you can't drink while doing all of those.

So yeah, that's my suggestion, get druuuuuuuuunk. Then fap...that's about what I do.
