1. Nothing In My Room All Day
I’m very comfortable being alone. I’m very introverted. One time this girl at the mall recognized me and got a picture with me and afterwords asked, “So how often does this sort of thing happen to you?” I said, “Not too much, I don’t really go out too much anyway.” “Oh, you’re a hermit!” “Ya I guess haha” “That’s funny, ok thanks I love your videos…”. I like to just lay in bed with my laptop and watch movies, surf the web, read, play my keyboard, sleep, love sleeping.
I’ve been skating since I was 10. I’ll go for months without doing it and then start up again doing it almost everyday. I’ll always be listening to my shuffle too, that goes hand in hand. Listening to music and just getting lost in my own world. I don’t usually talk to anyone at the park. I’ve found most people that skateboard are there for themselves, it’s their time, their therapy. Kind of like working out at the gym, I like doing that alone too. They’re both mental escapes for me.
3. Drinking With Friends
Drinking’s just fun, period. I’m not an alcoholic and I don’t think I’ll ever be one simply because I don’t crave alcohol. I never think about it. It’s this add-on activity to hanging out with friends, extra credit, that just makes things a little more fun and interesting. Most of my best friends that I grew up with are Mormon too so I’m very able and used to having fun with out it. It’s a very good tool though for parties and enhancing the overall spirit of the night.
4. Eating A Hearty Breakfast At A Diner Early In The Morning
I’ll usually do this after pulling an all-nighter. I don’t have normal sleep hours anymore. I kind of just fall asleep when I’m tired and wake up when I’m not tired. I’ve become very lazy that way since Youtube spoils me and I don’t really work anymore. Sometimes I think getting a part-time job or going back to school will help this, but I worry it’ll ruin the Ju Ju or Jinx the success of the Channel. Anyway, I usually get a meaty skillet mixture of hashbrowns, eggs, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach and then I’ll add some chulu hot sauce on top of it and coffee with cream & sugar.
5. Hanging Out With My Family
I lucked out. I have a great family. My parent’s were a little disappointed to hear I didn’t want to go on a mission nor keep going to church, but they got over it pretty quick. I usually see my family in one way or the other about once a week. There’s me, the youngest, then Danielle, Jaclyn, Michelle, and Paul. I have one nephew and one niece at the moment. Two more on the way. Every summer we go to Upstate New York, where we have a cabin on a lake, near Lake George. This week is usually the highlight of everyone’s year.
6. Star-Gazing On A Blanket With A Girl In The Summer
I don’t think I’ve ever done this and not enjoyed it. There’s a Berenstain Bear book I think called, “Too Much TV”, and at the end they’ve all learned to stop watching so much TV and are outside at night together looking at the “giant screen above”. The stars and the universe and all the big questions man can’t answer set the perfect romantic mood for hanging out with that special someone on a warm summer night.
7. Road Trips
Again, the listening to music goes hand in hand with this. I love daydreaming and listening to classic rock while staring out the window of a car. I don’t mind sitting in a car for hours. Also the friends thing, you’re just chilling with your friends and there’s no where to go. You’re more connected and in tune with everyone, it’s just a more intimate way of hanging out with people. You grow closer to people. Some of the funniest moments of my life have happened on road trips.
