vcczar Posted August 22, 2022 Share Posted August 22, 2022 I’m curious how everyone else entertained themselves in college. Here are some of the things I did: - Lots of reading, excluding assigned reading. Read at least a book a week but frequently more than that. - Lots of writing, generally creative stuff. My roommate and I would go to music clubs, diners, coffee shops, etc after midnight and write on napkins. - Make films with friends. - Make art. Generally drawing and things with photoshop. - Played a lot of chess at coffee shops - Get in debates at coffee shops. - Make music with friends. I usually improvised lyrics and played discordantly on instruments. - Create hypothetical religions, political parties, skyscrapers, etc just for fun - Deleted all the Madden NFL players and teams on Madden 2001 PC and created 32 fictional teams filled with historical players. Team of presidents, philosophers, serial killers, etc. designed the uniforms, helmets and football fields too. - Go to the outlet mall and ask really ridiculous questions to workers to get a reaction out of them. I usually had the best questions but I remember my roommate going to to a watch store and pointing to his watch and saying, “do you have this exact watch but more expensive?” My best moment was when I was in a Christmas store and asked enough questions to drink three cups of their free coffee. I wish I remembered what I said. - Played a lot of Europa Universalis 2 and I helped make the add on Age of Nationalism. - Drank 12 or more cups of coffee a day and slept 3 to 4 hours a night, sometimes not at all. Once three days without sleep. No drugs but coffee. I miss those days. Grad school was similar to this too but probably less diverse in activities.
