What to do while you're waiting for a video to load

If you like streaming videos on the internet, then i'm sure you've experienced that time when your internet connection's just so slow that you have to wait for ages before you can manage to watch the video without it buffering. Me? I've experienced it a lot of times. And it's really annoying especially if you're excited about a particular new episode of your favorite TV series (like Chuck!). So, what should you do to pass time while waiting for your video to completely load?

Well, I'll tell you some of what I do. Maybe it's the same as yours, or maybe you'd like to try it as well. :)

1. Finish your other tasks. Yep, put your time to good use, and finish or start doing all those things that you still have to do. It may be a paper due a few days later or something personal that you have to do.

2. Read a book. This one's really effective, especially if you get caught up in the book you've decided to read! You won't even notice the time pass, and if you want to take a break from reading, you can go ahead and watch that video first.

3. Eat! Try to take a small snack or a heavy meal, if you still haven't eaten.

4. Socialize! Go ahead and chat with some of your friends. Talking to someone about anything is a sure way to get your mind off that video for a while.
