    Gaming on my PC - I like many different games but simulators are my favourite type of game. Especially flight or train simulators. I find them relaxing and a great way to 'escape' from the world.

    Lock my bedroom door, unplug the phone, and snuggle up in bed with a good book.

    What are some things you like to do to get away from it all and relax?
    I moved away from it all about 37 years ago and I now take walks on a dirt road or in the woods to relax.

    Move away and disappear after having most of my mind erased. Thats sounds pretty good to me right now.

    "Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson

    That shouldn't take much effort, it's nearly blank already.

    As for my own leisurely proclivities, TOL, some games, either learning something casual like US geography or memorising the silly parts of the periodic table... I remember when I used to go to college and my girlfriend would call me and see how fast I could answer maths questions, it made the walk a little more interesting.

    I used to draw and design stuff quite a lot for a hobby, but I haven't really done so in a while, I think I'm going to make a huge 3D pirate ship today... the texturing is so dull.

    I think the one that I'd share with everyone, yet I don't think anybody has mentioned it... eating or cooking, both are wonderful and relaxing.

    Sometimes I visit the most strange websites:

    Other times I just sit with my dog and cuddle him, or I stroke the cat with my foot (I'm mildly allergic to it, it doesn't seem to mind).

    I don't have any drug addictions to take up my time, alas I may be addicted to the internet and chocolate.

    I think the most enjoyable thing you can do with your time is to find someone intelligent and interesting to talk to, (especially if they're attractive). Oh, and then there's the shower... I spend an unhealthy amount of time in the shower because it helps me think about my writing.

    Thank God, life is beautiful.

    .
    I go sit in the Real Presence of Christ in the Catholic Church

    There, everything looks different... and anxiety and depression disappear...

    because Jesus couldn't care less about most of what is going on in the world... .except insofar as it affects people's salvation...
