Hi all I recently retired and moved to a small, quite rural town (smaller and more rural than I anticipated from the population stats) where there's not much going on at all. No movie theater, library closed for a year (!) for renovation, no public transportation, no education opps (like classes at a community college or parks & rec etc.), no art or entertainment venues. I am bored stiff after living in a big city with tons of resources at my fingertips and don't know what to do with myself all day/every day. I am also shy and not very talented at much of anything. Has anyone experienced this type of transition? What the heck do you do about it? I don't really like to drive that much but with no public bus - does anyone know of anything/any activities I could do from home to engage? How do you fill your day and keep your brain active? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I have been ordering and doing diamond paintings. It is quite relaxing and time consuming. The kits are relatively cheap, and the pictures are beautiful. I also am on Facebook, play a game on there (Family Farm) and do jigsaw puzzles on Jigsaw World, also on Facebook. Those, too, will pass some time for you, if you like to do that sort of thing. I still get a little bored, but try to keep moving, but I have two bad knees-have had both replaced, and one got infected and still isn't good.
