Fall Bean Salad

So the other night I was bored.

For the past 4 months, I have done nothing but study study study and go on an occasional date with the boyfriend. Oh, and watch lots of Vampire Diaries. But now, with my first semester of grad school 99.999% over, I have nothing to do.

I was home alone, I had already cleaned the kitchen, played the piano, done laundry, and watched the Taylor Swift Fearless series on Netflix. Uh.. now what?

So I texted my friend who has a big girl job, aka doesn’t have homework to do on the weekends – sadly, she lives an hour away or we would have been hanging out – and she has this FABULOUS list of things to do when you’re bored and she sent it to me. And I’m sold.

What do you do when you’re bored? I, for one, am going to memorize a song on the piano (YES, MEMORIZE!), bake too many Christmas goodies, make homemade Christmas cards, work on this book I’ve been writing for 5 years, continue with the Harry Potter series, and up my cardio. Christmas break, you’re on!
