INTERVENTION!

So I've decided this little dinosaur needs less forum time lest her cranky pants get pulled up to her bitch boobs permanently and all hell breaks loose. 

SO:

I need some new websites to procrastinate on, and I'd like your recommendations. 

What do you do when you are anxious/nervous/unsettled and you're using the computer?

Re: INTERVENTION!

I really can't help you out here @5-HT 'cos I 'make' pictures...........

Re: INTERVENTION!

I go in search of beautiful images @5-HT ..... or look up funny cats or other funny cat-like animals.  I look up travel destinations and learn more about them, even if I will never go there .... like Malta for instance .....

I look up aspects of history ..... like Roman bath towns .... or “origin of” in relation to cooking, and ancient recipes .... which often links to ancient scripts and other things.  It was interesting coming to understand that Normandy was a Viking settlement in northern France, for instance, and what the cross between Viking and French culture, art, cuisine etc produced .....

I am definitely an armchair traveller and scholar .... lol .... internet = window on the world .....

 

Hi @Zoe7 👋 💕

Re: INTERVENTION!

I did have abit of a giggle. Its so honest lol @5-HT besides here i tend to go on ebay, looking for online courses or activities near me like the library. Youtube is another one.

Re: INTERVENTION!

@Faith-and-Hope you've just given me a really really good* idea.
I might start a blog of sorts, about my favourite dinosaurs and archaeological sites. I've always wanted to be able to dedicate a bit of time to these topics. A little light hearted research and write up might be total nerdy 5-HT kinda fun!

* In a 5-HT kinda way

Re: INTERVENTION!

@5-HT Ummmm .... Good question ... I get up and make a cup of tea and have a healthy snack walk around for a bit. Maybe explore different forums to get differing ideas on things and then when I feel calmer I go back to what I was doing. Sometimes I just need to have a rest on the bed for awhile to calm my mind.
