Keep DreamingThe summer can be miserable unless you know what to do. Unfortunately, most people would rather spend their days inside rather than think of something exciting. To help you get the most out of your summer, I have compiled a list of my favorite activities along with pros, cons, and helpful tips. And you thought programming your hentai website in C++ was exhilarating!

No matter how stubborn or picky you are there should be at least one thing on this list able to please your lazy ass. Alright, the sun is out, and your fun day is already wasting away. So set down whatever nerd things you're doing, put some pants on, and come outside.



Camping

Camping is a great way to rid yourself of time wasting habits. Instead of sitting in front of a computer, you can start sitting in front of a campfire. If it helps pass the time, think of the fire as the planet's first operating system.

Camping is common among creepy white trash and loud, drunk white trash, so spending the night in a public camping ground means having these people flanking your five-foot plot. It's fine that the neighbors are obnoxious and untrustworthy, you traveled twenty minutes outside of town to enjoy nature, not to sing the newest Tim McGraw song. Sleeping in the woods allows a person to return to his or her natural beginnings; unfortunately, returning to one's natural beginning requires four hundred dollars worth of gear.

Pro

  • Basic living in nature (with the aid of toilets, electrical outlets, propane grills, bug spray, tents, showers, flashlights, disposable silverware, power generator, lighter fluid, and a modest 70 foot R.V.)
  • Mom can't tell you it's bedtime (not true if your mom brought you) dfdfdfdfd

Con

  • Regardless of the campsite's size, your neighbor will set their tent up inches away
  • Everything smells like dead fish
  • You will get poison ivy on your face and crotch within the first five, resulting in your front end looking like two proboscis monkeys stacked on top of one another

Bird Watching

Prefered Method

I know, it seems weird, but trust me. Bird watching can be a lot of fun. As a hobby, it is enthralling and relaxing. Simply choose someplace you feel comfortable (backyard, local park, not EB games) and wait. The idea of bird watching is to go unseen, so your extensive collection of camouflage pants will finally come in handy. You may have to stay still for at least thirty seconds, so be sure to bring an extra dose of Ritalin. If you want to attract more birds to your area, try scraping sesame seeds off the top of your Baconator into a bird tray.

Helpful Tip: If you see a rare bird, kill it. That way you can show others!
Pro

  • Feeling of success when you spot a new bird
  • The same skills needed to be a successful birdwatcher are the same skills you use to stalk young girls

Con

  • Birds are most active in the mornings, which may interfere with your 3 A.M World of Warcraft raids
  • Birds attract cats, and you know how cats affect your allergies
  • There have been very few Chocobo sightings in North America

    Lair Flair!

    Your lair. Maybe you lure victims to it, maybe you hide in it between killings, or maybe you haunt it 24/7 because you’re tragically confined by a curse. Whatever the situation, for most of us monsters, a living/un-living space is an important part of our identities. In this column, Monstergeddon award winners share their lair tips and techniques!
