Wazzup Pilipinas!

Are you bored? Do you own a computer? Problem solved! Your laptop or desktop is the key to days of entertainment!

If for some reason you can’t connect to the internet - maybe you need computer repair, that’s no problem! We have a section on entertaining yourself without the internet.

Play Games Online

Do you need to de-stress from a harrowing day? How about finding some games online? There are a ton of online databases of free games like Addicting Games or PC Gamer. You can try “Role Playing Games” like Minecraft or World of Warcraft too.
Are you the type of person that appreciates “retro?” You can actually find versions of classic arcade games too. You can Google “flash versions of arcade games” and you can find:

Donkey Kong
Pac-Man
Ms. Pac-Man
Tetris
Super Mario Brothers

And more.

Enjoy Internet Media

YouTube. The name says it all. If you’re familiar with this site, you know it has videos of anything and everything you’d like to see, from internet doggos to memes, to history documentaries.

You can also download videos using YouTube video downloader.

If you can’t conjure up an idea of what you would like to see, you can simply check out YouTube’s most popular channels. You’re bound to find entertainment.

Heck, you can make your own YouTube videos.

Vlog about your day or an interesting experience you had.
Unbox a package you just got.
Perform a funny skit with your friends.
And much more.

You can watch movies online. You can opt to pay for movies from streaming sites like Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime, but you can also check out free streaming sites like MetaCafe, UbuWeb or Vimeo.

If you’re a music lover, you have the world at your fingertips. Listen to music online with apps like Pandora, Spotify or Soundcloud.

Looking for information? Check out a podcast. These are sort of like free radio shows and podcasts cover tons of different topics. You can head to PodBay or a similar site to check out popular podcasts that will stir your imagination and keep you engaged.

Be Random.

If you’re bored, you can visit a website service that will send you to all types of interesting places online.

Checkout stumbleupon, pointless sites, or the useless web.
Get Creative

If you feel your creative juices flowing, there are a variety of online painting and drawing services. You won’t even need to install anything yourself.

iScribble
Sketchpad
Queeky
And more.

Put Your Brain to Work

The internet is so much fun that it’s possible to forget it’s a tremendous resource for learning, and learning is fun!

Head to sites that compile big lists of things you didn’t know you cared about. Buzzfeed is a great site for this, but Upworthy and Slate are worth mentioning too.

Read local news on the internet. Find a local news source and get reading. Don’t be one of those people that knows more about the Kardashians than your own local government!

You can take a free online course to better yourself while you have fun. Google search “free online courses” to find databases of free lessons.

Entertain Yourself Without the Internet

Customize Your Computer

You can customize your computer to express your personality, by setting a desktop picture or more. You can select a screen saver, or change the color theme of your computer.

Clean Things Up

If you haven’t kept your computer organized up until now, this project could keep your occupied for days.

Create folders and put corresponding files in the folders. You can even change the icons on your files if you want to. The best part about your computer is that you can organize it however you want. Just be sure that the new organization will be easier for you to navigate and find files.

After you are done organizing, clean things up. You can defrag your hard drive or delete persistent cookies. You can use programs like CCleaner, which has a handy feature to clean up your registry if you would like to do that too.

Learn to Code

If you have a good book to learn from, learning to write computer programs can be a lot of fun, and you can do this without the internet.

Make Media Offline

You can use photo editing programs to make interesting pictures. Your computer probably comes equipped with one, like Microsoft’s “Paint.”

Consume Media Offline

Do you have a backup hard drive that contains music and video files? Upload them to your computer. You can even just take your favorite DVD and watch it on your computer. If your OS comes with a video editing program, you can edit your videos there offline.

Get Creative

Want to write the great American novel? What’s stopping you? Open up your word processor and get cracking. You can write anything you’d like - fiction, an essay about something you're passionate about, or a memoir.

You can also create a diary on your computer. You don’t have to worry about losing it, and you can put a password on it to protect it, and put it in a place where no one will find it.

Get to Know Your Computer

Are there programs you don’t have any clue about? Maybe you don’t know what they do, or why they’re even on your computer. Take the time to explore it. This program might even help you entertain yourself more.

Do you know if you have a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system? Go ahead and find out! If you’re feeling controlling, you can explore the command prompt and boss your computer around. Just be sure not to run it as root or administrator if you do, otherwise you could damage your device.

Play the Games that Came with Your Computer

Have you ever played Minesweeper? What about Solitaire? These are some games that came with your computer, that can keep your mind working and be addicting.

We hope you have enjoyed our guide to entertaining yourself on your computer, and hey, if you made it to the end of this article, you’ve already occupied yourself for a few minutes. Computers have changed our lives forever, and can be an endless source of entertainment and fun.
