I love to get extremely cosy in a blanket nest on a bean bag and just read for hours on end in comfy clothes. It's really great. Reading in the bath also works (Kindle in a ziplock bag).
Or, if I'm feeling more stressed or if it's a particularly nice day, I'll just go for a moderately-intensive bike ride to clear my head and work out my legs.
Or, you know, browse Reddit and Hubski for hours on end and adding things to wish lists
Sweden or one of the Scandinavian countries.
I hear that they do just about everything right. Like their education system is amazing, and their approach to prison is making prisons actually shut down due to the shortage of prisoners. Plus, they're supposedly filled with beautiful women, so that helps too.
I just tried to gauge interest in playing with friends. Enough said yes, so I organised stuff. You could probably try your local board game shop, or check out http://paizo.com/pathfinderSociety to see if there's a local Pathfinder game near you.
I like playing tabletop RPGs. The interesting thing was that I only got introduced to it by pure chance. My friend (to whom I hadn't talked in a while) was hosting a DnD 4e session which I heard about when talking to his sister (who I hadn't seen in ages) about The Big Bang Theory and how it's taking the piss out of nerd culture. Anyway, I started playing and never looked back. Since then (start of last year), I have played in 3 groups, and have started running 2 Pathfinder groups with friends.
I highly recommend tabletop RPGs to anyone that's considering them. They're like video games where you can choose to do just about anything, rather than the scripted options.
I'm not familiar with the co-op classes, but that sounds awesome. However, I personally prefer playing as an Infiltrator (and a Renegade one at that). OK, he's definitely the coolest. Or, at least tied with Mordin.
I generally study alone, with varying conditions of noise. For example, when I start out, I generally start listening to some Rush to get me psyched and interested. However, after a while, I'll just stop listening to music and study with my headphones in but not playing anything (only in noisy environments, though).
Of course, this depends on what subject I'm studying and what I'm actually doing. For example, I'll listen to music if I'm not doing anything too intensive, and concentrate in silence on mentally heavy tasks such as assignments.
And it's not just the planets or the story, either. I don't know about you, but those games make me really intrigued by the technology present in them, and what living in that universe would be like. Plus, Garrus is kinda the coolest..
I was shown Tim Burton's Batman (1989) when I was 5 years old. I went out of the room to get a drink and walked back into the room when Jack Nicholson's Joker appeared on screen. Yeah... Jack Nicholson is a scary man. I had nightmares for 2 years because of that
Back to school.....
