Home just doesn't feel like home

2 years, 2 months ago

In four days I’m going to be done with the semester and on my way back home for a month long break. Its weird going back and living with my parents. Everything back home seems slower and extremely boring. I’m an adventurous person, which makes the idleness of my hometown seem like a heavy metal chain around my neck. This leads me to my question. What are some hobbies/goals/ideas that I should work towards over break. Right now I have

1. Lift and run everyday
2. Meditate everyday
3. Volunteer somewhere (hospital?)
4. Smoke weed
5. Write something? Maybe a short story?
6. Look for rec basketball league

Throw me some ideas. I’m always looking to improve myself in anyway I can.

Read more. Try Herodotus’s Histories, or maybe some older literature like Jules Verne or H.G. Wells. Also, try and go out of your way to help someone each day, be it opening the door for an old lady with her hands full, or doing something around the house without being asked.

Is this your first christmas break? I find the older I get the more, going back home feels better and less slow (as i know the feeling your talking about), I’m in my senior year in university now. as for ideas of what to do, go for a walk and notice shit you never noticed growing up, ask your parents if there’s anything that needs doing/fixing around the house, as you mentioned volunteer-but i’d suggest at a food bank or something like that, try and learn something new every day (other than the shit you’re required to ‘learn’ at college/uni)-maybe even from your parents, think lots, sleep lots, and enjoy having relatively no responsibility for a month!

Walk around and take pictures. You might see your hometown in a different light.

That being said, home doesn’t have to feel like home. We don’t really have a home, just a place we grew up.

I just said home a lot.

check out coursera.com and join a free online class that’s going on now, that should fill up about 5-8 hours of time per week. maybe take two? maybe drugs and the brain or astronomy? anything you loved to do as a kid try taking it back up. learn to yo yo like a pro, start learning some chords on an instrument. take walks/jogs in the woods, with or without music. Go for long hikes out by yourself to get away from it all. go to some music shows, meet up with any old friends in town. watch videos on this website, the long ones you’d normally skip over because you don’t think you have enough time. Learn new meditations. Try this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5iqAariX50I
become a child again, if only for a short while.

@orthaw, Reconnect with ALL of your exes. Maybe write them love sonnets, make them sexy mixtapes, you know, that kind of stuff. This will result in uninterrupted monkey sex festivals until break is over. Then, dump them before you go back to school, and begin process again at the start of your next break. Repeat infinite number of times for infinite sexy time.

1) Join a league of some sort (pool, poker, fantasy football, outdoor yoga, rock climbing)
2) Volunteer (lay off the weed while you register to volunteer..they sometimes drug test you)
3) Hangout with yourself (take yourself to lunch, on a hike, to a movie)
4) Talk to a stranger (everyday)
5) Let someone know that you love them. Call. Write. Text. Talk.

These are things I’ve been trying to hack away at slowly. :)
