I got into some trouble by my parents being out an hour away from home after curfew. My punishment is that I cannot leave the property, and cannot have any friends of mine come over for the next month. :thumbsdn:

SO, now that I have so much time to do whatever I please (with the restrictions above), what should I do? I'm usually out of the house a good 4-5 nights a week, and don't really know what there is to do here. Ideas?

I'm sure you can come up with more things. Just do what you normally do when you're home, you'll get used to not going out after a while.

I never go out because I fail to see the point. :p

Things to do...

Play games on the interwebnets.
Post threads about rep.
Take the interwebnets seriously.
Get mad at people on the interwebs who insult you.
Steal your parent's car and drive to Alaska.
Just sit there.
None of the Above
All of the above
All of the above and then some.

The possibilities are endless.

Im with the person who said situps, whenever im at home and i have nothing to do i workout. I find it fun, and in the end you will become a stronger/fitter person... win win?

If your not into that then people have already mentioned some good ideas... you could try your hand at something arty :p If you like drawing or painting, or maybe buy a big canvass and some spray paint and go nuts :)

Other than that i have no clue atm.. sorry :)

that's a pretty good list. choose one of the above.
another option is making funny flash videos...i have fun doing that in downtime, occasionally.

Have someone smuggle in World of Warcraft for you. From what a lot of people claim, you won't want to leave the house for months.

How old are you? What time is your curfew?

Watch movies lots of them.
And you could always sign out for that DVD rental to your house business, See your not leaving the house.. and your friends aren't coming to the house, It's just like pizza delivery.
When Im bored at home, I make stuff... Like new inventions out of food, blend it all together or something.
Or... I play video games, or play games on the computer.

Thanks for all the suggestions peoples. I can't really get high as that's one of the things I got in trouble for .. but most of the other suggestions were good. I don't really work out all that much .. but I suppose it could become a new habit.

World of Warcraft pisses me off and I'm TRYING to be social, not anti-social.

My rents are alright .. it's just that they caught me an hour south of where I live, high, and with 4 people in my car they didn't know.. my curfew WAS 12:30, but now is 10:00.

Can't sign up for netflix etc b/c I have no way to pay for them... and thanks jung for that tutorial on flash.

Haven't we all forgotten the obvious...masturbate?

Anyways, I've been in situations like that before. I'd usually drive myself to near insanity playing the same video games or watching the same movies over and over, so I started working out. It's a good way to kill a few hours if you know what you're doing. Cardio work is pretty fun. I'd go into the back yard and run laps around my pool until I could barely stand. By then I was so exhausted I didn't care that I was about to watch Idle Hands for the millionth time.

Thats what I do! Sometimes I combine all my old shampoos (that have like a tablespoon of stuff left in them) and wash my dog. Not only is she clean, but I cleaned out my bathroom cabinet!

Hey.. I've been there.. And I'm with my friends as often as you are. I think you should play games with your friends or talk to them online...that way you'll feel less lonley in your room. well i'm out of ideas :p bye
