Posting in the Office. Whilst wishing I was watching The Office.

Accessing any interesting websites on the Internet whilst at work is risky business. A bit like stealing the last chocolate from the box, or having sex in a public place – except the gratification is nowhere near matched, unfortunately. Recently, I’ve been doing the odd few days a week where my boyfriend’s mum works; gathering a bit of cash during my holidays from university. This aspect is brilliant but, alas, the work I’m ‘set’ isn’t exactly enthralling or all that time-consuming, meaning that I have a ridiculous amount of spare time to kill during the day…

Here’s a list of websites to keep you going during your ‘working’ day:

  • www.reddit.com/r/askreddit – plethora of random questions, more often than not, hilarious
  • www.reddit.com/r/sex – similar to the first, gives insight into how hopeless guys are and how secretly horny us ladies are
  • www.reddit.com/r/twoxchromosones – page where women talk about women things
  • www.reddit.com/r/indiefolk – if you’re lucky enough to be able to listen to music at work
  • www.look.co.uk – website that corresponds to the UK magazine (my favourite magazine)
  • www.cosmopolitan.com or uk – I prefer .com, strangely
  • www.wordpress.com – perfect time to write away

What websites do you frequent when you’re bored?
