No one to talk to

    So I'm spending the weekend catching up on homework and studying before midterms next week. After a few days straight of studying, I need some small distraction to keep my sanity. Chatting with someone usually works, but no one is around. I can't imagine what these people are doing away from the internet on a Saturday night, but I think it was very inconsiderate of them to leave me alone. What can I do now? I don't know if music will be enough. Someone come talk to me! Ahhh! My book is alive! Oh, wait. False alarm. It just seemed to be moving for a second there.

    I used to have this happen when I was in school. Most of my friends had normal, 9-to-5 type jobs, and a student's hours are so variable. If no one was around and I needed a study break, I would go for a jog.

    Yeah, I love to run, but I already went running for an hour around sunset.

    I'm snacking on sugary cereal now. It's a pretty good sensorimotor distraction. I wonder if I could find some kind of toy to play with, like a slinky but more complex.

    If I had a better net connection I would offer to argue and/or flirt with you until homework would be the less annoying option. :wink:

    I'd like to hear that. It's probably be best to settle that before going too far, otherwise you get "you're gorgeous...or possibly ugly".
