How to Find Things to Do

It is common knowledge that people who don't have anything they need to do can, at times, become lethargic and braindea- I mean, can become a little lazy and amount to not knowing what else they can possibly do with all this spare time. Perhaps you're on holidays from schooling and are rich enough to not work (or sick enough, or too lazy, or incapable of getting a job no matter how hard you try). Perhaps you have just finished all the episodes of Doctor Who or Supernatural or Game of Thrones and have already looked through all of Tumblr for every meme possible and had previously finished every other series out there that you are interested (including American, UK, and Asian dramas/cartoon/animes, as well as a few talent/singing shows). What to do?

It is another universally accepted truth that when you really do have things you absolutely need to do - say for example, do your taxes or study for four upcoming final exams that may be worth half your final assessment - suddenly, there is a plethora of things you can do! Tidy your room, do all the washing for a week, ahhh nature is beautiful is it not? Oh what about this YouTube channel - over 1000 videos of VlogBrothers? Sure! I can do that at this very moment! Friends want to take a nice stroll down to the lake? Yes! NOW is the BEST time for that!

What you need to do, is to write down everything you want to do when you feel like procrastinating, and refer back to it when you have nothing to do. That way you are procrastinating a little bit, but you haven't completely moved on to a new activity. And when you are done, you have a list of things to do!

If that doesn't work, then here's the deal: you have nothing to do because you don't feel like doing the things you can do? Dare: I dare you to learn how to do a cartwheel. If you already know how to do this, then I dare you to draw the first thing that comes to mind when you see this picture, and then read a little about infrasound:

When one is busy, one is not doing nothing. When one is not doing nothing, one cannot be without something. When one is without something however, one must try to attain something in order to not do nothing and therefore be busy. Because when one is busy, one is on track. When one is on track, one can attack, like the wonderful beans of a laughing Jack.
