Things to Do When You're Bored at Work (Without internet)

Postby j24jags » Mon Jun 30, 2008 6:38 pm

So I just started my summer job and I had a lot of down time, internet is blocked to prevent people from going on non-business related websites, but I have a tremendous amount of paper and some pens. Today I tried to list my top 50 movies in order. It was a good way to kill 30 minutes, anybody have any other ideas/better ways to kill time with just a pen and paper?

Shooting crumpled up paper into the basket is always fun. Throwing pencils on the ceiling, paper airplane, etc are fun also.

That stuff's good but I should have mentioned I don't want to disturb or people nor make it so obvious that I'm doing nothing.

Yeah, sticking pencils in the ceiling and making paper airplanes would not go over well with the boss. :-b

I'm home now, I literally can't go on the internet at all at work. I'm on the east coast, it's 730 EST, I get off work around 530 EST.

Another Blown Save I like that idea...

I run into a similiar problem with my part time summer job. What I have done a few times is find the complete text of a book online and e-mailed it to myself before going in, then open it up and read away. Great way to kill time while appearing to be doing something productive. Just don't get too into it, because it doesn't look good when your boss walks by your cubicle and you have your feet propped up on the desk reading. !+)

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

I'm big on doodling. Yes, I said doodling, strange little pictures of things. I'd be a bit worried about a position with THAT much downtime. I'd suggest trying to get some added responsibilites if you want to go the productive route. ;-D
