    So, we're all busy people...what non-premed things are worth your time?

    I say,

    hubby
    the Chappelle Show
    sleep
    homemade biscuits once in a while
    calling grandma

    I really like the Chappelle Show...just thought I'd share. Maybe we can start a thread of happiness-inducing activities to help cheer up all the grouches on this forum. I mean, I'm a new kid, so I don't want to rock the boat, but wow, some people are flippity flamin' flamers!

    Thumper's mom was right, you know.

    kisses!

    also, ananova.com's quirkies section, the monday crossword puzzle (it's the easiest one, makes ya feel smart, esp. done in pen), and I Don't See Nothin Wrong With A Little...

    I say,

    Praying (about everything...not just getting in ;) )
    Going to the movies with my wife and daughters
    watching college football...roll tide!

    Disney World trips
    lighting up the grill and inviting friends and family over
    listening to people's ideas, problems, and encouragement

    The fact that you people have lives depresses me.

    Just kidding.

    Worth it:

    Astronomy (Biggest one)
    Scuba diving (Almost as big)
    Contemplating (Couldn't survive without it)
    Kool Aid (Ditto. Yeah, really.)

    The Gym,
    Calling Grandma,
    Doing "nothing" instead of "something" once in a while,
    The Dave Chapelle Show,

    God... there are so many things that are worth it, it's a shame so many premeds can't enjoy them.

    What non premed things are worth it?? Anything that makes you happy. For me, it's being around my friends, because it's the memories I've had with them that have defined my college experience. Go out at night . . . experience college. Live it up. I have two weeks left and don't want it to end. It's been the best, most amazing four years of my life.

    In terms of "structured" activities . . . I don't know . . . I've been involved in a sport for four years, so that's taken up a good portion of my time. Do whatever you enjoy . . . try volunteering or play an intermural sport.

    I'll say playing my guitars/mandolin and jammin' out with my friends. A nice set of cold-ones hits the spot too, especially on beautiful spring days.
