We have all been there at one point in our life. You are in the middle of getting dressed to go out with your friend and the call. They have fallen sick. You were supposed to meet in an hour. Now, what are you going to do with your night? While you could go out anyhow, there are other things that you can do with your newfound time. After a talk with Matthew Davies, we have compiled a list of our favorite things he shared with us. Take a look below and see if you can find something you like.
You know that you are not reading as much as you should or like to. Why not take this time to catch up on your reading? There are tons of new books that come out every day. Take the time to look some of them up and give them a read. Or, maybe you have some books that a spouse, family member, or friend gave you. You have been meaning to read it, but you have not had the time. Well, now you don’t have an excuse. You just had your friend cancel on you and have a couple of free hours. It doesn’t have to be a book either. There are newspapers, magazines, and online blogs you can read as well. Just pick what makes you happy and go from there.
If reading is not your thing, there is always television. If you are a couple of seasons behind on your favorite television show, you could binge on that. We have been known to go through one or two seasons in a weekend. Get a head start by starting on Friday. There are probably some movies that you have missed too. Either stream them or buy them and watch them. Don’t forget to grab some popcorn and sodas if you choose this route.
If you want to save some time this weekend, take your newfound time and get some shopping done. This can be either grocery shopping or clothes shopping. Either way, you can get out of the house and a jump on something in the future. As a matter of fact, even if it is early in the year, you could always get some Christmas shopping done. This will save you a load of time this Christmas. Almost any shopping that you do ahead of time will be time well spent.
If you have a hobby, this might be the time to do it. If you don’t, this might be the time to find one. Just make sure that you pick one that you can do when you have free time and not something that you must do every time you have a second in the day.
There are a ton of things you can do when a friend cancels on you. Hopefully, you have found a few things to do from the list that Matthew Davies provided to us. Best of luck with your free time!
