    You know so many languages write an open source app and try to make it popular or join a team of devs who are presently working on an active project.

    Start working out.

    Boredom often leads to some form of addiction. Stay away from any kind of addiction.

    What are some new things I can try?
    Join the Ubuntu docs team and contribute to the "official" documentation (official is in quotes because it has fallen behind so much that is it getting hard to call it official). There is Desktop help and/or the Serverguide.

    Second Bucky Ball's suggestion, particulary if you know 11 musical instruments.
    Most freely available music needs editing down with something like Audacity as it is often too long but also somtimes not long enough IMO - a lifetime's occupation.

    Well, Tristan, you're a problem-solver extraordinaire. Your problem now is boredom, innit!

    It's a troubleshooting issue, really.

    Are you more interested in playing guitar or in cooperative gaming?
    Are you more interested in writing code or in writing a novel?
    Given the choice, would you be more interested in running a half-marathon or running for city councilor?
    Would you rather spend 14 days camping in the wilderness or 14 days living in Paris?
    Do you prefer cooking a great meal for your family, or taking your family to play mini-golf?

    What I might be suggesting, tentatively and with all respect, is that you use troubleshooting techniques to find out where any hidden interests lie, decide what financial and responsibility may allow you to do, and then go in that direction for awhile.

    I dunno, I seem to have more stuff I want to do than I have time to do stuff.

    yea And the Respawn time is annoying, Tutorial takes 18 years, and pvp is not allowed

    Seriously though, OP, try playing games like League of Legends, dotA, or World of Warcraft... if you have a lot of time, that is
