18. Write About a Random Word

A lot of times, when I'm bored, I'll take a word and write as much as I can about it. Usually I just stop when I get bored with the word. Here's an example:

Random Word: Objection

The first thing I think of when I hear objection is when someone says, "I object!" at a wedding. Of course that only happens in movies. I mean, it could happen in real life, I've just never heard of it. I also thing of meetings and if there is something that needs to be decided, like, what color to paint the new school bathroom. I imagine people saying, "Any objections?" Also, relating back to the wedding thing, I always think of the Shrek movie where he runs into the wedding and screams, "I OBJECT!"

That was a piece of raw writing you just read right there. No editing or anything.

Here are some random word generators:
Random Word Generator (Plus) - You can choose what type of word (noun, adjective, verb, etc.) and the complexity of the word (Common, Average, etc.)
Creative Random Word Generator - You can choose how many words you want (1-8 words).
Random Word Generator - Choose the length of the word, what letter it begins with, and how many words you would like to generate.
Random Word Generator With Definitions - You click on a button and it comes up with a random word and a definition.

Also, gives you a new random word each day and you have a minute to write as much as you can about it. Then it gets posted into the community where everyone can read it. I liked it for about a day, but I always have a lot going on so I didn't have time to do it.

Have a random word rant? Post it in the comments!

17. Have a Poke War

I am one of those really weird people that loves poke wars. I think it's because I can never lose. If I'm really bored I'll sit there for 10 minutes going back and forth with one of my friends. It's kind of sad really. Well this has been a short post. Blah, blah, blah, blah. Ok. I'm done.

Anyone have photos of their own poke wars?

16. Watch Thor

I have a very hard time finding good movies on Netflix that I haven't already watched before. Especially a good action movie. So when I watched Thor the other night, I was crossing my fingers that it would turn out to be a good movie and it did.

My Rating: 4.5 stars
Netflix Rating: 4.1 stars

IMDb Plot Summary: The warrior Thor (Hemsworth) is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard by his father Odin (Hopkins) for his arrogance and sent to Earth to live among humans. Falling in love with scientist Jane Foster (Portman) teaches Thor much-needed lessons, and his new-found strength comes into play as a villain from his homeland sends dark forces toward Earth.

The movie was pretty good, but sometimes the plot was very predictable and the action scenes were not as intense as I had hoped they would be.

Favorite Character: Loki (Tom Hiddleston) is my favorite character only because he was the most interesting. You could never really figure out whether he was evil or not. Also, there was always more to his back story than thought.

Overall it's definitely a movie you should watch when you have a chance.

What did you think of the movie Thor?

15. Check Out Quickie Links

Check out my new Quickie Links tab! I'll try to update it as much as possible. It will be just random links to different things, but hopefully it will help you pass the time. This has been a really short post, I know. Keep an eye out for a movie review coming up!

14. Read the Latest Headlines

There's always something going on in the world. By knowing what's going on around the globe, you can impress your friends later. Well, maybe it wouldn't impress your friends unless you found something weird and unusual, but the news is interesting! It is our job to stay informed! I mean you don't even have to read the article! You can just look at the headline and the pictures. Reading the first paragraph is also good, since that paragraph usually summarizes the whole article. Some good news websites are:
USA Today

I can't think of anymore... Well if you have any news websites, or any interesting articles, comment!

13. Browse Photography

I love photography and I spend a lot of time trying to find beautiful photos on StumbleUpon. Here are some of my favorites:

Here is a beautiful picture of the Northern Lights.

This is a breathtaking photo of a waterfall coming over a ridge into a pool of water.

I love this photo because there is so much activity, yet it is so quiet.

This photo beautifully captures the lightening flash in the distance.

The coolest photo of a bubble popping! It is currently the background on my iPod.

Beautiful photo in which the flower looks like the sun.

I love this photo with the giraffe perfectly silhouetted against the sky and the rays of light shining through the clouds. Absolutely beautiful.

This photo is amazing. I love all the pink blossoms.

Tell me what you think about these photos and which photos you think are absolutely amazing. I'll keep looking for more photos. :)

12. Watch Cute Animal Videos

This is one of my favorite things to do in my free time. The little faces of those kitties and puppies just make your heart want to melt!

Now I know it's not Christmas anymore, but this 12 Days of Christmas video is adorable! Cute animals singing? What could be better?

So I was looking through my YouTube feed the other day and I found a video that TheEllenShow had liked. I clicked on it and I find myself looking at a video of a kitten trying to steal a dog's tongue. So cute!

This one is one of my all time favorites. The Ultimate Dog Tease. It's a pretty famous video, so you may have heard of it. Also, it's not so much a cute video as it is a funny one.

Alright, one last one. This one is sure to make your heart melt. I mean, what's cuter than a sleeping puppy?

What's your favorite cute animal video?
