Top 10 Pastimes

What are the top 10 most fun things to do with an hour or two of spare time?
The Top Ten
1 Listening to Music

Great fun, just bring your iPod and lay down in a field in the middle of summer. All your worries just melt away...

Listening to music is very relaxing, especially when you've had a bad day or are bored.

I'd say playing an instrument is #1. When I play guitar, 2 hours pass like it was 10 min.

2 Surfing the Web

I can't imagine how people ever figured out where to eat, or how they ever kept in touch with each other, before the Internet.

Yeah, I probably spend too much time doing this.

It's a favorable website to browse around.

3 Watching TV

You are so right. My mom said my eyes are going to be messed up because I am on the computer too much... DAMN BAD EYES!

Isn't it funny how little we really watch T.V. anymore? The Internet has almost killed the darn thing.

4 Playing Video Games

Casual gaming is healthy. The people who go beyond that are a bunch of neckbeards to begin with. Who'd want to hang out with those?

It's the best if you wake up, get breakfast, play, get lunch, play, get dinner, play, then sleep. Best day possible.

5 Talking

I never shut up sometimes. I'll admit it.

6 Reading

Reading is not boring at all! Reading is like living in a different world which is fun. You open up your imagination deeper when you read. The more you read, the more you learn. You learn a lot of new things every day just by reading.

It's a bit boring to admit, but I love reading. Crime/thriller novels, non-fiction British history. I can't get enough of books - not a bit of plastic like the Kindle, but real books I can feel and smell. I'm glad this is in the top 5.

You can never read enough, and you can also never reread enough. Seriously, if I were locked in a room with any of the following series: LOTR, Inheritance, Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, I would never get bored.

7 Sleeping

Great, makes you grow taller too.

8 Watching Movies

I love going to movies with my best buds. Who doesn't love a good movie?

Ah yes, one of my all-time favorite things to do.

9 Swimming Swimming is an individual or team sport and activity. Competitive swimming is one of the most popular Olympic sports, with events in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.
10 Getting High

Although I don't do drugs, I talk nonstop with my friends about weed.

The Contenders
11 Skateboarding Skateboarding is an action sport which involves riding and performing tricks using a skateboard. Skateboarding can also be considered a recreational activity, an art form, a job, or a method of transportation.

If I COULD do this, I probably would. I have a little bit of an allergy to pain, though, so I haven't taken it up.

Other than sex, this and snowboarding are the best things in the world.

Hey people, learn this and get a life!

12 Shopping

I can spend hours out shopping, mostly looking at stuff, but buying a few things, too. Clothes, stuff for the house, stuff that makes my life easier and makes my style more current and fresh.

13 Fishing

Reeling in a fish is fun and exciting.

14 Eating

Anyone who doesn't like to eat might, and probably should, die. Eating is not only essential, it's also fun.

15 Exercising

Get a good body, feel accomplished, and wake up and spend every day more physically able. There are so many muscles in your body to work and so many exercises that it would take a lifetime to master them.

16 Vegetating

Correct, it crafts our mind in such a way that it indulges an extra quality to face situations of high tension. It is self-training our mind and body.

Just sit in a silent room, stare into space, and do absolutely nothing!

17 Daydreaming

Is it a pastime or a habit? I can't stop myself from doing this every day, throughout the day.

18 Drawing

I'm a terrible drawer, but I draw anyway.

19 Playing Sports

Popular pastime often practiced at home. Enjoyable, especially with friends.

20 Playing an Instrument

Playing an instrument zaps time like nothing. An hour of playing feels like fifteen minutes. Plus, you can play whatever you like to listen to, and the way you want it. It really works out your brain too, and it helps you feel accomplished, at least I do :). Try it out. It really wouldn't hurt to try something new!

21 Socializing
22 Driving
23 Visiting Relatives
24 Solving Sudoku
25 Interacting with Animals

Although it doesn't seem fun, quality time with your animals is a great pastime. Besides, it's also good for the pets, too!
