Posted:I am employed, but still work my crappy after school hours but I have no more school! So I'm free every day, this is what I do:

I watch tv too much
today I modified my dress for tonight and a new top
I've been designing a banner for my favourite party people
When stuck with a long powercut, I would suggest reading books and messing about with clothes

Posted:Strange, my Dad, tried to get me to read that last night.
I've been reading this though which is wicked.

Sorry offtopic ubbangel why don't you make something, like a new set of poi, or staff or stilts or learn how to do a handstand / cartwheel. Go for a walk, a swim or a cycle. Try make a stranger laugh. Cook someone a meal :shrugsmiley: biggrin

I live in a world of infinite possibilities.

Posted:Ahhhh ... a day off. I like DeepSoulSheep's idea of making something. Nothing is more satisfying than creating something. Have you ever made your own poi? That is one of the most delightful things to do with my free time. I've also made fire staff and baton - but I love assembling things. Maybe you like to sew -- this is what I wish I had enough time to learn how to do. Also, reading is great. I could give you some recommendations - but you've got a few up there already. Go to the park with a book and some practice poi and smile at strangers.

Posted:at any other time i would have said something lovely like meditate all day, but i had my first day off all term today, and basically i slept and washed my boyfriend's underwear. Very forward thinking of me i know.

i also read a bit more of this book, which is sooo huge i think i might never get to the end (which is fine by me, i just want it to keep going and going!)

I had a dream that my friend had a
strong-bad pop up book,
it was the book of my dreams.

Posted:i like to sleep. lots. and lots. and then a bit more.

but, you could go for a bus hopping day, if your town/city has day trip tickets, get one, get on the first bus to anywhere, and just keep going, see where you end up. or, do the same thing, but aim to get somewhere you havent been before. or, go somewhere, but take the really long way around. or, just sleep biggrin

Posted:Weeell, tomorrow is Canada Day so it IS actually my day off. tongue

I always like doing stuff by myself in the morning (spinning, reading, working out, etc), spending as much time in the sun in the process, and then getting together with friends to chill in the evenings. Perfect day. smile

Posted:I've discovered the joys of internet piracy. Watching your download rate is oddly addictive and often better than the film you're trying to get hold of.

9000 bpm. Wooo!

There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.
