7 Perfect AF Ways To Kill Time This Week

What to watch, eat, read, and do.

Posted on

1. Watch Dramaworld.

Viki

This adorable little show is the perfect lazy watch. Dramaworld follows Claire, a college student and Korean drama addict, who get sucked into her favourite television show to help the two leads fall in love. Except something's not right in Dramaworld, and instead of providing a happily ever after, Claire finds herself trying to solve a murder mystery.

Find it on Viki and Netflix UK.

Also, Luke Cage is here so get. on. it.

2. Read A Teen's Guide To Modern Manners by Sam Norman.

Little, Brown

Thursday was National Potery Day in Britain, so why not have a late celebration with these delightfully funny and poetic portraits of modern teens?

Alternatively, Ailbhe says: "Grub Street – the food section of New York Magazine – is celebrating 10 years of its infamous Grub Street Diet column. In the column, a celebrity lists what they ate that week: from healthy meals (Kristen Bell) to boiled eggs and soldiers (Courtney Love). Reading GSD is the high point of my Friday, and it's also a great way to find restaurants in new cities (especially New York). You can find the entire back catalogue here."

3. Listen to A Seat at the Table by Solange.

Columbia Records

"I would like to wholeheartedly recommend Solange's new album, A Seat At The Table, a chill, relaxing listen that's perfect for work productivity and will change your life," says Gena.

Listen on Spotify.

4. Play Orbit.

This puzzle-slash-gravity simulator is so gorgeous and easy to get completely consumed in. Across 45 free levels, you launch planets and then work to keep them in their orbit and away from black holes. It's totally engrossing and so cool to watch.

Get it for iOS and Android.

5. Cook these apple crumble cupcakes.

And/or, work some self-care into your routine this week.

7. Follow Julian Glander on Twitter.

Rebecca says: "I would like to recommend Julian Glander's Twitter account. He's a wicked 3D artist based in the US. Many of his tweets are cool looping gifs of his work. They're always super-weird and super-mesmerising, which in my mind, is one of the most winning combinations art can achieve. His work is a happy way to break up the otherwise rather bleak corner of the web that is a Twitter homepage (Endless Brexit and Trump, anyone?). When he's not tweeting art, his other tweets are pretty bloody entertaining, as well."

Follow him here.

For more art, Maggy says: "It's InkTober which, especially on Instagram, is pretty great. It's like novel writing month only artists try and post one ink drawing a day for the entire month of October. The Inktober hashtag or Inktober2016 hashtag is pretty inspiring, even if you're not partaking yourself!"
