I'm a college student, and I have a really boring class every Tuesday that's 2 hours and 45 minutes long. It's an interesting situation... attendance is required and checked, and electronic devices aren't allowed, but discussion isn't required and the lectures don't really matter to the exams. So I sit there in the back of the room either dozing off, doing Sudoku, doodling on my paper, pen-spinning, or trying to secretly use my phone without getting caught. I find myself wishing I could use the time productively.
Just like when one sits down with paper and crayons and can't think of anything to draw, I find myself wanting to do something to further my game development skills (e.g. work on the design of a game) but as I sit there with a pen and paper and the professor droning on, nothing comes to mind.
Help me get through this tedious class! What are some things I could think through or work on, or how can I figure out things to think/work on? Or even things I could print out in advance and read or solve during class. Remember the constraint is that I have no access to technology...
And I'm not sure a book would be appropriate. Though now that I think of it, I should probably just read game dev books from the library. Why didn't I think of that before? Anyway I still want to hear suggestions! What would you do with this time, if you were in this situation?
