What do you do in your free time? Feel like I'm wasting a lot of time

(Still in school) I feel like I'm wasting so much time when I could be more productive. My typical free time is spent between youtube/guitar/xbox/gym (all regular activities). What do you all do?

First of all, while playing video games and watching videos online COULD be thought of as a waste of time, going to the gym is not. It's very important to stay healthy and in shape - not just for your own sake, but it helps a lot boosting your confidence and attracting girls.

Watching videos online is only useless if you're watching video game walkthroughs...if you're watching motivational speeches or learning something valuable, it's not a waste of time at all. You can learn more in one episode of Shark Tank than you could in a whole semester at most non-target state-school management classes.

What is your GPA? If you have a solid GPA, who cares? There are people who have 2.5 GPA averages and spend all their time drinking and partying... if you have a 3.6 or higher, it won't make a difference. There eventually gets to a point where you can't prepare for an exam any further.

Playing guitar is cool - not only is it an interesting thing to put on your resume so that people won't assume you're a nerd who spends 24/7 studying, it also helps getting girls and is an interesting conversation starter.

Honestly, as long as you're not posting garbage troll content every day and getting into arguments with @GoldenCinderblock, I'd say you're alright

Seriously though, what does an accountant know about getting girls?? Wouldn't pay attention, OP.

It doesn't exactly take a rocket scientist to figure out that girls prefer fit guys to obese people... I like the general idea of your comment, but it wasn't funny at all. 1/10

Do better next time, champ

Guitar and Gym are both not a waste of time. Do you party much? I was barely able to drink my first year or two out of school, so enjoy it while it lasts.

We're usually at bars 1-2 nights every weekend. After freshman year (at my school) most of us are over the blacking out every night scene though.

Tinder. Last time you have to smash cute girls in your class

When I was younger in my undergrad, I always found myself with nothing to do a lot of the time, and I felt like there was a point of diminishing returns on studying... So I got into producing and creating music and even recording and mixing vocals in my spare time. Being able to play the guitar will help you in some ways getting started, like at finding catchy melodies.

I've spent some time producing & recording covers as well (usually my income goes to upgrading music equipment). I just feel like there's some driven kids out there doing useful things that I haven't thought of starting

I find the combining alcohol, trolling and violent video games is a killer combo of fun.

Never drank alcohol in my life, and never plan to. Thanks for sharing though.

I think reading, listening to podcasts, and other methods of learning or just enriching your mind pay dividends personally and professionally. Don't be afraid to go into a subject knowing you don't have the time to master it. Even basic understandings of radically different fields of knowledge can broaden your way of thinking and can often benefit you in unexpected ways down the road

The last time I remember having 'free time' to just 'chillax' and be lazy or non-productive is 1999.

I decided to move to the West Coast that year and packed up all my shit in my Honda and left to drive across the country the following summer in 2000.

Since then, there has always been something to do.

Something to think about.

Something to plan for.

The guilty pleasure of taking free time when you don't have it. It doesn't last long, so enjoy it.

You could say I have 'all free time now' or 'no free time'. I guess it is a matter of perspective. To some, I look very very busy all the time. Others tell me that they 'envy all the time I have'. But, I stay pretty damn busy all day and accomplish a shit ton every day. Every fucking day.

Gotta put out.
