• Adventures from the Couch

    Ever had those days when there is nothing to do, homework feels like a terrible idea and there is no entertaining content online? Ever feel as if you have no motivation to get off your couch? Don’t worry, adventure is everywhere. My friends and I were having one of those days, so… 1. We made things up – use your imagination!  Ask for a person, place and thing, and create a story using these devices. We came up with an elaborate story of Pocahontas trying to find a magic pillow in the Himalayas. Our story was not Pulitzer Prize winning but it was enough to keep us occupied and it made us laugh. What stories can you come up with?   2. Make some cookies If you can hoist yourself off from the couch, consider baking some cookies. Missing some ingredients? Go on a scavenger hunt across campus and steal from ask your friends and neighbors. While the cookies bake, crank up the music and have a mini dance party. Then when they are done, you get to eat them, which is the best part. 3. Try and catch food in your mouth If you can’t hoist yourself off the couch, then you need to get creative. My friends and I grabbed some popcorn and threw it across the room to see who would catch them in their mouth. Just remember to pick up the popcorn afterward, or to keep a vacuum on hand. 4. Live tweet your friends Of course this can seem a little pretentious, but who cares? It’s your friends and you’re having fun. Why not share the hilarious things your friends say and confuse everyone by not adding context. 5. Pretend the floor is hot lava I think you know the rules of this. The next time you are bored and too lazy to get off the couch, you can do little things; adventures can be had anywhere. You don’t even have to get up. Often staying at home and spending time with friends, doing things that make me happy are the only adventures I need.
