Looking For Something To Do?

Louis posted on another thread about making a list of things to do when struggling, or on weekend/evenings, or when bored.

So, why don't we make a collaborative effort and everyone can add what they like.

When it's done, I will Sticky it at the top of the Forum.

My favorite thing to do is to go for a walk.

I love going to the library and browsing through the shelves hoping to find something inspiring.
