If you’re looking for things to do in your free time you probably don’t want to be on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Youtube, Xbox, Playstation, Computer etc aimlessly any more. Well that’s what it meant for me. I realised I had forgotten how to use the internet and technology productively, and that there are even things you can do without the internet!! I know right?

I found, I was bored, and needed to challenge myself and my brain. I needed to learn something new, do something different. This meant I was looking for something I wasn’t familiar with, by trying something completely new.. which also meant, I wasn’t good at it at first.. but I would get better the more I did it.

If you’re here because you don’t know what to do with your free time, then my guess is you need to try something new and challenge yourself to learn or do something out of your comfort zone.
