7 Fun Things To Do When You’re Home Alone

Happy Girl

    Finally, the wait is over. Your parents are going out for a day or two, and you are all alone at home. We can understand that many people don’t know what to do when they are home alone.[1] There is nothing to worry about it. We will help you out.

    Spending time with ourselves is one of the best things in the world.[2] With no one around, you can totally be yourself, laugh at yourself, play with yourself and do all those funny things that you might never do when someone is around.

    However, your reading this article makes it pretty sure that you would already have gone through a lot of those things in your mind, but you couldn’t find anything good to do when alone at home. Not all of us know the art of taking the maximum advantage of this time. So, here we will share with you seven fun things that you would love to do when you’re home alone.

    1. Watch movies.

    Yes, we can understand how difficult it becomes to watch movies when your parents are at home. Not all parents are easy-going. So why not utilize this time by watching all those movies you were dying to watch for such a long time? Moreover, this hardly requires any effort; all you need is a laptop and a good Internet connection. Some of free movie websites are on Crackle, Hulu, Vimeo, Leinster, WolowTube, Movie4K, Streaming-Movies, etc. The other way to have fun is even more simpler: Just switch on the TV and watch your favorite shows or movies.

    2. Enjoy your own concert.

      Most of us are poor bathroom singers. Alas! No one enjoys our singing. In some cases, the condition is so bad that our family members don’t even allow us to sing even a single song when they are at home. Yes, if you can relate to this, then you’re not alone. But now when you’re alone at home you are free to sing aloud your favorite playlist. Let the hidden talent[3] come out of you. Dance or sing as much as you can. Who knows, maybe these few sessions of singing could give birth to the next Beyonce or Justin Bieber?

      3. Call, text or video message a friend.

      You were once addicted to your phone, and now your parents have strictly said no to the usage of cell phones. But no need to worry much. Now is the best time when you can talk for long hours to your friends. Make plans for the meeting; discuss the latest talk of the town. The time is even more crucial for the ones in a relationship. When can you get a better opportunity for doing a video chat[4] with your better half?

      4. Play video Games.

        If you are a gaming freak, to whom nothing seems more adventurous than playing Counter Strike or Overwatch, then this is the time you will surely love. Being home alone is the best time to play video games.[5] No one will be there to scold you for playing games for long hours. You can also download the latest games from the web on your PC, laptop, Mac or smartphone. You could also live your childhood dream of exploring your brother’s favorite collection of video games. Obviously, in his presence, you would never get a chance to do that.

        5. Get your favorite celebrity look.

        This is indeed the best thing to do when nobody’s at home. These stunning photos of yours will surely rock your image. Getting the celeb look is something we all would like to experience at least once in our lives. Put on some makeup, wear fabulous clothes, accessorize a lot and let your photo shoot reflect the fun you had. Count on us: your friends are surely going to be jealous of your Rihanna or Madonna look.

        6. Homework!

        Many of you might be the ones who love to study. Believe us, the alone time at home is the best time to finish off all the homework or pending assignments. With no one around, you can concentrate better and can even solve those hard and tedious math problems with much more ease. When your parents get back, surprise them with your sincere efforts. That can even get you some gift or tasty candies from them.

        7. Relax!

          We totally get it. If you are one of those who loves to sleep for hours. You do not care what is going around in the world and can’t even tolerate someone disturbing you while you are sleeping. All you want is a cozy blanket and a soft pillow, and then you are lost in the world of your beautiful dreams.[6]

          Indeed, all of this sounds amusing. So, you now know what to do when your parents are out the next time. (Tho a note of warning: be on the safe side and don’t do anything dangerous.) Do let us know if you have any other fantastic idea. And also, share your amazing ‘home-alone’ experiences with us by commenting in the comments section.

          The Importance of Making a Camping Checklist

          Camping can be hard work, but it’s the preparation that’s even harder. There are usually a lot of things to do in order to make sure that you and your family or friends have the perfect camping experience. But sometimes you might get to your destination and discover that you have left out one or more crucial things.

          There is no dispute that preparation and organization for a camping trip can be quite overwhelming, but if it is done right, you would see at the end of the day, that it was worth the stress. This is why it is important to ensure optimum planning and execution. For this to be possible, it is advised that in addition to a to-do-list, you should have a camping checklist to remind you of every important detail.

          Why You Should Have a Camping Checklist

          Creating a camping checklist makes for a happy and always ready camper. It also prevents mishaps.  A proper camping checklist should include every essential thing you would need for your camping activities, organized into various categories such as shelter, clothing, kitchen, food, personal items, first aid kit, informational items, etc. These categories should be organized by importance. However, it is important that you should not list more than you can handle or more than is necessary for your outdoor adventure.

          Camping checklists vary depending on the kind of camping and outdoor activities involved. You should not go on the internet and compile a list of just any camping checklist. Of course, you can research camping checklists, but you have to put into consideration the kind of camping you are doing. It could be backpacking, camping with kids, canoe camping, social camping, etc. You have to be specific and take note of those things that are specifically important to your trip, and those things which are generally needed in all camping trips no matter the kind of camping being embarked on.

          3. Make sure the whole family is involved in making out the camping check list or downloading a proper checklist that reflects the families need and ticking off the boxes of already accomplished tasks.
          4. You should make out or download a proper checklist months ahead of your trip to make room for adjustments and to avoid too much excitement and the addition of unnecessary things.
