Besides the obvious "Play AoK online" and "start a SD project", that is.

This is because I will have many long gaps between classes at university (and don't bother suggesting "homework") once September hits, and I cannot play AoK online at school (I still haven't figured out why not from last year ).

Write! Make short stories, poetry, or draw (comics, people, political satire, pictures of Morgoth). If you want to do something AoK related, you could also write some Age of Kings-related articles and post them up here.

Besides, I don't have the money to do that.
Write!
I'm not too much of a writer (or artist), but I suppose I will give it a try.... And as for the articles, who knows, I may take a stab at it...

Learn to play a musical instrument. I took up guitar a few months ago, and already I'm better than Angus Young!

For a nerd it's better to play drums, for it whips you up in physical shape too.

Better start playing a guitar when you still have the chance. Drums is far easier to learn and is fun to play, but would you rather beat a toneless, leather-made instrument with a pair of wooden sticks when you're extremely bored, alone, and need to entertain yourself?

Acoustic is a nice idea - sounds great, portable, and makes you look better.

But if I were you, I'd do sports. Go jogging about 4 days and to the gym 2-3 times a week. Eat tunafish. You can get a lot more from yourself if you're physically in shape.

"Especially awe-inspiring is the fact that any single brain is made up of atoms that were forged in the hearts of countless stars billions of years ago... These atoms now form a conglomerate – your brain – that can not only ponder the very stars that gave it birth but can also think about its own ability to think and wonder about its own ability to wonder. With the arrival of humans…the universe has suddenly become conscious of itself. This, truly, is the greatest mystery of all." - Rama

Take photographs of yourself and post them in the picture thread!

Make graphics mods - you only need MS Paint for them!

Seduce female students on campus!

Build a bridge!

Etc. The possibilities are endless!

You could take up the steel drums. You have to actually hit the right notes then. Makes it a bit more challenging.

But if you want an easy instrument to learn to play, take up the maracas. You can join a mariachi band then!

Nothing woos the ladies or is more cheesy than standing outside their window serenading them with mariachi music!

I agree. Drums just aren't my scene. *boom-PAP-boom-PAP-boom-PAP* ...yay, how exciting.

Besides, I'm told that chicks come on to guys who have a guitar.

Yeah, my friend lost his virginity after a playing a song on his guitar to his girlfriend.

Note that I said "girlfriend". So don't expect carrying around a guitar wherever you go will help you pick-up girls, lolzlaorz

Damn, you're playing them wrong then. They're like playing with explosions; sure, the lack of danger's never fun, but the loud noises and crazy rhythms are all that.

But then again, I'm from the metal school of drumming. Complicated rhythms and fast tempos, or complicated rhythms and freakishly slow tempos. Or funk drumming. Or latin percussion. Drum solos. Time signatures. *Chokes on tongue.*

Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog" often does that to people.

Want to really excite your girlfriend? Play the solo on RATM's "Bulls on Parade". You're sure to score some major relationship points.

Sounds like you need to purchase a hi-hat, a collection of cymbals and tom-toms of all kind, one more pedal, and a drum idol to worship.

If you demand more challenges, then lose an arm like Rick Allen did, but this time intendedly. Rick rocks, by the way.
