With technology at our fingertips, how could we possibly be bored? Only offline people get bored, but just in case you are – here’s some things to occupy your mind.
You’ll have heard that famous saying ‘only boring people get bored’, right? Well, I’ve come up with a modern take on this, so that it now fits for the 21st Century: ‘only offline people get bored’! I can’t imagine how anyone can be bored these days as there is so much entertainment waiting for us on the Internet.
Feeling bored? You just need to go online and get some fun from one of the following sites.
Gossip websites, like the infamous one by Perez Hilton, have been around for the best part of a decade already. And there are hours of entertainment on them! Simply scrolling through will inform you what kinds of dramas are going on in the world of the rich and famous. You’ll be able to find out all the latest rumors from Hollywood and will be able to find out the inside scoop on the latest celebrity engagements, marriages, and births. Oh, and there are plenty of scandal stories to keep you entertained as well!
Once you get bored with reading the latest tales from Tinseltown, you might want to navigate to a game’s website. No matter what type of games you prefer, you will almost certainly find what you are after on one of the thousands of sites out there. You might want to log in to a live casino if you fancy trying your luck at poker or roulette. But you don’t have to play for money if you don’t want to. If casino games aren’t your thing, you could always play the online versions of classic favorites, such as Angry Birds, Pac-Man, or traditional card games.
If you are a bit of a fashionista, there are lots of fashion sites that could inspire you. All of the big magazines have their own sites, such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. As well as lots of great fashion tips, you can browse articles detailing the ins and outs of the fashion world. It’s also worth signing up to fashion sites’ newsletters as they often send out discounts and deals with certain brands to their followers.
If you feel the urge to get your creative juices flowing, you might want to think about using one of the various online platforms to hone your talents. There are lots of sites that help writers develop their skills as an author. Some of these even have message boards that allow you to get in touch with other aspiring writers so you can swap ideas and tips. There are also lots of sites aimed at artists and illustrators. You’ll find that once you join an online artistic community, you will always have someone to chat to, whether you need advice or just want to share your work with them!
Thanks to the Internet, we have no excuse to be bored these days, as you can see from the suggestions above. Just remember, that this is only a small selection of the entertainment waiting for you online – start surfing now and see what else you find!
