Pi Day is officially upon us. But what to do? What to do? There has to be something cool to do on a day dedicated to pi. Make that pi guy happy, and do everything based on the 3.14 rule. Why? Pi, that’s why.

If you’re living on the northeastern coast of the US then you’re probably going to want to stay indoors in order to avoid the frigid Winter Storm Stella. But you can still live the pi life at home.

But what to do on Pi Day? The opportunities are almost as endless as all those numbers that go beyond pi’s decimal point. Look below for an exclusive top 5 best things to do on this day of pi.


Play Video Games For 3 Hours, 14 Minutes

My eyes usually start hurting after only about an hour of game-play. It’d be hard for me to last 3 hours+ in the video game world. But then there are those who spend countless hours in front of a glowing screen, as they click away at their controller. That person would think three hours and 14 minutes of gaming to be amateur hour.

Make it a goal to play a video game of your choice for exactly three hours and 14 minutes. If you don’t like the game and switch to a different game, the clock starts over.


Read A Book For 3 Hours, 14 Minutes

Of course, I’m going to try and be a good influence.

Pick up a book of your choosing. It doesn’t matter what book. Just make sure that it’s long enough to last at least three hours and 14 minutes.

What if you don’t like the book you’re reading? What if you decide to pick up a different book and start reading? If you begin reading another book, the clock starts over.

What if you need to take a bathroom break? Well, that’s understandable. The clock will be frozen until you get back. And you’ll be allowed to read that shampoo bottle in the meantime.


Take A Nap For 3 Hours, 14 Minutes

Many people are stuck inside because of Winter Storm Stella. Right now, I hear droplets of hail bouncing off the back of my air conditioner and the sirens in the distance are muffled by the wind. I wouldn’t want to take a walk for three hours, and 14 minutes (much less 3.14 seconds) in that weather. But the sound of the storm outside is oddly relaxing. A nap for three hours and 14 minutes sounds pretty damn good to me.

But how can you make sure that you sleep for exactly three hours and 14 minutes? Well, it’s a little hard to tell. You can set a timer, but then what if it takes you a while to fall asleep? You’d have to keep getting up and readjusting the alarm time.

You can also ask a friend or family member to wake you up in exactly three hours and 14 minutes. They may think you’re being oddly specific. So, you’re probably going to have to tell them why.


Binge-Watch A TV Show For 3 Hours, 14 Minutes

Pick a television show of your choosing, and get to work watching it!

You may want to set a timer, to make sure you don’t go beyond the three hour, 14 minute mark. Remember to be disciplined, and shut off the show once the three hours and 14 minutes have passed.

Fyi, this would be the perfect time to Netflix and chill. Just make sure the other person is down with this pi-specific activity. I wouldn’t want to ruin your date or whatever it is you two are doing.


Dedicate 3 Hours, 14 Minutes To That Thing You’ve Been Putting Off

Have something that you’ve been putting off for a while? Now is your time to change all that! On National Pi Day, take three hours and 14 minutes out of your day to do the thing that you should have finished a long time ago.

Still working on that novel? How many years has it been since you started? You say you don’t have time. Well, make time. Make time, Brian. Wait, what? Oh yeah, I’m writing an article.
