When Boredom Strikes

With rainy weather, tropical storms and possible hurricanes sometimes you just HAVE to stay home and that's when the horrible disease strikes. Luckily, there is an easy cure!

When you're stuck at home for a few hours it is always best to watch a movie, that usually makes the time fly by. Find an actor you like and try to watch all their movies by the end of the summer, saving the good films for "stay indoors" weather. After watching so many movies, feature length films can get boring, and sometimes there is nothing good on T.V. so you'd have to move to the next treatment: crafts.

Using the power of Google and Youtube you can spend an afternoon learning how to make an origami crane or how to cook. Boredom gives you a chance to find new hobbies or develop talents you didn't even know you had. At some point in life cooking becomes essential and crafts become handy, so get a head start and enjoy!

In case the other two treatments aren't your cup of cherry flavored medicine, there is still an answer: be productive. As teens, cleaning our rooms comes second when we have an opportunity to go out with friends. It is important to keep things neat and organized to please the parents. Also, it may be time to clean out your closets and get rid of old clothes or shoes that you don't wear anymore. You can donate these clothes to Goodwill or be creative with them. It is ultimately your decision but either way you'd be productive, organized, pleasing your parents and doing a good deed for society. Seems like a win-win situation.

That is my prescription, just be careful on the dosage and remember to have fun with any option!
