We all have those moments when we have no freaking clue what to do. We are so bored out of our mind that we cannot think of a single thing to do. That’s why today I decided to make a little list of things/activities you could do when you feel very bored!

Some of them are downright ridiculous and some are quite serious, so be prepared. But what would you expect from me? I just can’t pass an opportunity to include a little bit of humour in my posts. So without further do, let’s get to this. Also, don’t forget to save it for the future references!
