Kill time

When you “kill time”, you find something to do while the time passes… usually something that occupies your mind. You find something to do to use up your extra time before an important or significant moment. You spend time doing nothing in particular in order that it seems to pass more quickly.

1.      What do you do when you are bored out of your mind… when you have nothing to do for a period of time and you need to kill time while you’re waiting for something to happen?

2.      When you have time to kill do you usually veg out (do absolutely nothing) or do you catch up on some work and try and be productive?

3.      How to you kill time at the airport when you’re waiting for your connecting flight? Do you go shopping, read a newspaper, get connected to the internet, or do you just watch people?

4.      Playing video games is a great way to kill time. It epitomizes the expression, “Time flies when you’re having fun.” The other thing is that it is addictive, so you don’t notice the time passing.

5.      Do you think that reading novels or fiction books will become a thing of the past? With all of the media we have these days, can you find time to set aside and read a good book? The internet is so portable that you can keep up with social media no matter where you are and kill time, even when you are at the bank.

6.      Workaholics don’t have much time to kill. Their advantage, though, is that they seldom get bored. 

7.      Sleeping is on the top of many people’s lists when they want to kill time. Sleep is good, especially in this day and age where it is often sacrificed for work and other activities.

8.      If you have cable or satellite TV, then you will have no shortage of channels to choose from when it comes to killing time. I sometimes kill time in between teaching English classes by watching CNN or an episode from a TV series.
