Cheap Ways to Amuse Yourself
« on: February 18, 2013, 08:43:22 am »
Hi GTs! Assuming that we don't always have the money to splurge, what are your cheap ways to have fun? Mine are:

1. Go to a friend's house then watch movies and play board games.
2. Immerse yourself in a really good book.
3. Get to know the people you're not close with.

Share away!  ;D
