I was reading articles on time this morning (nothing like reading about scientists bickering with my cup of coffee) and found an article on how people have different perceptions of time.
I can’t find the article any more but it spoke about how time seems to slow down when you’re doing something you don’t like and it quickly speeds up when you’re enjoying yourself. This is so true. I feel like a minute lasts an hour when I’m doing something I wouldn’t do but boy does time speeds up when I’m on Tumblr.
It got me thinking about using this perception on time on role plays. I think it’s important to have a healthy balance of both times. Some events should be unwelcomed by your characters because it makes them uncomfortable but you should balance it out with situations they would enjoy. So, here are some ideas for different situation ideas. Mix it up and have fun with your characters.

Here are some more ideas on things that your character might enjoy doing as well.
