Even though we have Netflix and smartphones and e-readers and all of these amazing things to occupy us, it’s still really easy to get bored. Boredom can strike at any time, often when you have something important to do that you’re procrastinating actually doing. It’s not your fault. Getting bored can happen to anyone.
That’s why the Internet is such a great place. There is literally a website for everything, and there’s always something to see online. There are millions of sites that you’ve never heard of so the Internet can provide endless entertainment options. But it can be daunting to find things to entertain yourself when you’re bored, which is why I’ve done it for you! Bookmark this page and visit these sites when you need something fun to do:
Playback.fm has a really cool feature where you can plug in your birthday, and it’ll tell you what song was #1 on the charts when you were born. You can do this for yourself and find the #1 songs for your friends and family members too.
Lunchtimers is a fun site that lets you play with refrigerator magnets with other people online. You can collaborate to make poems or chat or mess with people and move their letters when they place them, which is what I definitely did.
This is a curated site that shares funny and inspiring images from all over the internet. Be careful not to get stuck on it for too long because you literally will be on it forever.
This site shows you ridiculous products that you definitely do not need but definitely want. From magic wand remote controls to sloth shower curtains, you will find plenty of crazy things to buy.

12. Is It Normal?
Is It Normal? allows you to ask questions about things to find out if other people do them too. My favorite is about naming articles of clothing: “Is it normal to name articles of clothing? For example, I call all my bras Alan. I lost a really expensive one and found it tangled in a duvet cover from the wash and I casually remarked, ‘ah, I found my nice Alan.'”
When you hover over Hustlin’, this site starts playing the song and flashing colors. It is guaranteed to brighten your mood and make you feel like you can do anything.
