How to Kill Time in Class

by Kimberly Hill

Class is boring, I know. But there are some tricks you can use to make it more tolerable. For example, if the professor has a bad sense of humor and takes themselves too seriously - play along with their jokes or just laugh at them for being so ridiculous. If your teacher likes to talk about things that aren't related to what they're teaching - ask questions about those topics! Finally, if all else fails and the class is really dragging on - just think about how much money you'll save by not going out as often.

Play hangman with your classmates.

We all have classes that we're not too excited about, but there are ways to make them more bearable. If you're in a lecture class and the professor is talking for hours on end without stopping, try taking notes or highlighting important information. You can also try to imagine what it would be like if your teacher was teaching an exciting subject such as physics instead of history. For large lectures where professors do not allow laptops, find a friend and talk with each other while the professor speaks. In both cases, bring something interesting to read in case you get bored; this can include magazines or books from home! This way when the professor starts another long speech, you'll be able to enjoy reading uninterrupted.

  1. Take notes on the board.
  2. Doodle in your notebook.
  3. Get snacks from home or a vending machine.
  4. Read ahead of time and take good notes during class.
  5.  Talk to people around you - it can be interesting to learn about what they're studying, their plans for after graduation, etc 5b. Don't get too distracted by them though! You're there for a reason.
  6. Keep up with assignments and don't slack off when you have more time on your hands.
  7.  If all else fails, try sleeping through it 7b) When that doesn't work either, try looking at other students' faces while they sleep - it's hilarious.
  8. Go outside if possible.

Sometimes, it can be hard to survive a boring class. One way I've found that works is to take notes on what the teacher says. This helps me focus better and actually pay attention.

How do you pass time in a boring online class?

How do you pass time in a boring online class? Well, there are some things that you can do to make the class more interesting. There are many ways to make an online course more fun and interactive, but these six tips will help keep your attention during a long lecture.

  •  Attend live chats with other students about the topic of discussion. Live chat rooms offer a great way for students from all over the world to come together and discuss what they learned or ask questions that they found difficult on their own. These live chats can be accessed through your professor's website as well as through social media networks like Twitter and Facebook. 
  • Take part in collaborative projects with classmates outside of face-to-face interactions by using Google Doc.

What can I do in 5 minutes in class?

In this blog post I am going to talk about how you can be more productive in your classes. Have you ever been bored in class? When we are bored, there is a high risk of us getting distracted and not paying attention. This leads to procrastination and ultimately poor grades. In order to prevent that from happening, here are 5 ways that will help you stay on top of things: 

  • Take notes during the lecture
  •  Ask questions when necessary 
  • Review your notes before a quiz or test
  • Keep yourself accountable by sharing with classmates what works for you
  • Put your phone away!

What can I do for 20 minutes in school?

The day starts early for many students. You might have to wake up at 5:30 am, get ready and eat breakfast, walk to the bus stop or drive in rush hour traffic with your parents before you even arrive at school. Once you're there, it's important that you make the most of your time! This blog post is going to teach you what activities are good for 20 minutes in school.

How do you survive a class you hate?

No one likes to go through their days feeling like they're in a prison. With this blog post, I'll show you how to get out of your classes so that you can spend more time doing what YOU want to do! This blog post will give advice for four different situations: if the class is boring, if it's too hard, if there are bullies or people who make life difficult and if the teacher is bad.

So, you've just had the unfortunate luck of getting stuck in a class that you absolutely hate. In my experience, there are two ways to survive this harrowing ordeal:

  1. take notes and turn them into a blog post for your next semester's class or 
  2.  use that time to catch up on all those TV shows you never have time to watch.


The best way to kill time in class is by getting a good night's sleep the day before. You'll be more refreshed and ready for another lesson, which will make it easier to focus on what your teacher has to say rather than how much you're dreading going back tomorrow. If that doesn't work, try coming up with an idea for a blog post like this one! It sounds counterintuitive but there are few things nicer than having something else to think about when you can't stop checking Facebook or Twitter. And if all of these ideas don't help? Take out your phone and tweet us @BloggingTipsUSA so we know who needs some tips ASAP! We love hearing from our readership and would be happy.
