cuddled up in a blanket, trying to get warm and watch a movie. I find myself not going out as much in the winter time and I can get very bored sitting in my house all night.

Television, my little secret to relaxation. Whenever I need to take a break from my work or studying, all I need to do is switch the television on and just zone out for a little while.
