So far there have been eleven answers to the question, "What do you usually do in your free time?" and none of the answers, strangely enough, contains the word "television." I have read somewhere that Americans spend an average of six hours a day watching television. I like to watch professional football on television, but otherwise I avoid it because of all those insane commercials. I subscribe to Netflix and try to have something to watch every night from around five to around eight or night, the only hours I really consider my spare time. I watch highbrow dramatic stuff and lowbrow thrillers and documentaries. Sometimes I don't want to be edified but just to wallow in mindless chewing gum for the eyes. I often watch favorite movies over and over again. If I'm doing anything constructive, I don't consider that really spare time.

When you ask about this, it reminds me of an old record I had where Alvin and the Chipmunks have to tell what they like to do with their spare time.  They end up singing about liking to break dishes and fight with squirrels and stuff.  Sometimes, I would really like to break dishes myself...

Sorry... In real life, my favorite thing to do in my spare time is to read.  I used to like to play all sorts of sports (particularly basketball, volleyball, and tennis) but I am no longer able to do that because my knees will not let me.  Also, if this is considered something that one does in one's spare time (rather than part of work) I like to do things with my kids -- playing games with them and doing things like that.

What free time? As a teacher, student, mother, and wife, I have little free time. In all honesty, I spend much of my free time on eNotes. As a self proclaimed nerd (see name), I find it relaxing to read, research, and help students with questions about literature. Outside of that, my free time is spent surrounded by my family watching movies and enjoying time spent together.

I love to travel and have been a long-time collector (stamps, baseball cards, records, CDs, antiques) for many years, so I like to combine these two interests whenever possible. I also love to read and swim, and I can also be found attending sporting events whenever possible.

In my free time, I like to read. I have also recently taken up bike riding.  I certainly do enjoy going out, either shopping or just hanging out, with friends.

During my free time i usually go out with my friends or if i do not feel like hanging out with anyone, I just stay in my room and listen to music and make paper stars.

I usually go to sleep or eat. In addition to that, I also like going out with friends or just relax. I also like to go out to the park to look at scenery and think about what I want to do in life.

I usually stay at home with my laptop, either reading, going onto tumblr, or watching some kind of movie/drama. But at times I also go out with some friends to the mall.

When it's summer vacation, spring break, or the holidays, I usually spend my time drawing and painting, other times, I really like working out or doing sports. I'm an exercise science major and being fit is my motto. When I have school and I have free time, I usually study and work out as well.

Mmmmm.. My free time is dedicated to music. Sad I had to abandon spending a lot of time with music because of these exams. But whenever I find a free time, I'm in my world alone with headphones on. :D When I feel tired and sad, what can help me with that is only music.

Unfortunately, free time is not something that I'm granted often. However, when I do have time, you can usually find me playing video games. I absolutely love them, and have played quite a few in my life time. 

I also like to exercise, play my guitar, read, and drink tea while watching YouTube videos :)

What I do during my free time usually depends on my mood at the moment. If I am tired, I just relax, kick back, and watch some Korean dramas. When I feel bored, I talk to friends and chat with them over Facebook, text message, or Kakao. Sometimes when I feel like making money, I do this on eNotes. Other times when I feel like I want to be active, I go to the gym and work out for an hour or hour and half. Or I play tennis with friends! Sometimes when I am hungry and feel like getting creative, I go downstairs to cook and experiment with food and hope it turns out to be okay. 

Other things I do that I have not yet mentioned are listening to music, finding new music, reading random, fun articles on Yahoo or Buzzfeed, go online clothes shopping, see if there are any interesting books that are popular, and hang out with friends by going out to eat. Food and/or café adventures are always fun too!

In my free time, I like to read manga and chapter books. I usually read the action, adventure, and humor genres. I find the stories very interesting. I also like to hang out with my family and friends when I have free time. We either talk or go someplace to hang out. With free time at home, I like to run while listening to music. I exercise to stay fit with music keeping me focused. I would go online to keep myself updated on my music and dramas.

In my free time I like to practice my Korean and Chinese by watching Kdramas and Taiwanese dramas. I just use that as an excuse to get away with watching dramas haha. But besides that I love reading books and looking for ones that I find interesting. At the moment I am working on getting the last book in the Mortal Instrument series.

( You mean besides answering questions on enotes? ) I love to read science fiction novels. They're a great way to pass the time, especially on dull bus rides to work. I also enjoy making postcards and greeting cards to send to family and friends. Of course, I also surf the web.

I love reading! I'm an avid reader and whenever I can I pick up a book! I also love to listen to music and dance. I'm in karate as well so I practice that in my spare time! Sometimes I hang out with my friends or see if my parents need any help and ask them. I also volunteer and it helps the community as well as it makes me feel good.

I spend a lot of my free time either with friends, listening to music, or building up some kind of skill. Some days when I have free time I might be sketching or reading a book and then other days I may be studying a foreign language or watching some type of documentary. I also enjoy using social media sites when I have free time.

zumba96 | Student

I tend to read usually, I like to read and it relaxes me, I also play my flute or dance. I think its a great way to spend my free time because it is something I enjoy and something that always make my mood better which is why those are some of my favorite things.
