There's a little activity I sometimes do, which I call fishing.
When I'm bored, in bed, or waiting for a chavrusah, or standing in line at a store, I'll text a 'What's up?' to about six different people in my contacts. Not everyone is bored or has time to text at the same moment I do, so naturally not everyone can respond. But this way I get into some nice chatty texts with multiple friends, to wile away the time.
It gets a little complicated when my chavrusa returns, and it's back to learning, since I've got some conversations to wrap up.
(If you don't understand why it's called fishing: it's simply because I throw out a bait text, and see who responds.)
