I’m not going to lie, I am a HUGE computer nerd. I probably spend too much time on the computer, but that is just because there are SO many things you can do on it, and for the most part it is a very affordable form of entertainment. I probably spend too much time on the computer as I work primarily online as well, but I enjoy it and that is all that matters, correct? Yes, correct!
Below are four fun things that you can do at home on your computer.
1. Video chat with your friends and family.
What I really love about the computer and the online world is that you can talk with anyone. You can talk to a stranger, your best friend, a long-lost family member, a coworker, and more. And, as long as you are on wi-fi, it is free to do so and you can video as well for free.
2. Play some games.
There are probably thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of games out there for a person to play. You can play by yourself, play a game on Facebook, play a game with a complete stranger, play a virtual reality game that never seems to end like Second Life, and more.
There are tons of games out there, so I am sure you would fine one that you enjoy. Some are free, whereas some games require payment. Look into what you are interested in as there are some fun games out there.
What I love about the computer is that I can pretty much search anything and find the answer that I am looking for. I can look up anything related to weird fun facts, recipes, sports betting, and more. I am full of random facts because I tend to look up every and any question that I can think of online.
My favorite thing right now is to get on forums that relate to what I am interested in. You can learn so much through the many forums out there. There are forums on sports, business, self-employment, career, retirement, money, home, DIY, family, and more.
4. Get on social media.
The next thing you could do on your computer for some affordable fun is to mess around on social media. Some social media websites include Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Linkedin, Reddit, Tumblr, Instagram and more. My favorite social media website right now is Instagram. I spend much more time on there than I do on any other social media website combined. Yep, even more than Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest combined! Instagram is great because you can see pictures from people all over the world.
It definitely gives me some motivation to travel around the world and try new things. That is a great thing, and that is why I like Instagram. It also only has pictures, so there aren’t stupid and meaningless arguments like you might see on Facebook and/or Twitter all the time. LOVE that.
