Unexpected Fun With 'Shuffle My Life'

Friday, July 15, 2016 16 Comments A+ a-

Due to recent boredom and loads of free time, I dowloaded an application from the App Store. It's called 'Shuffle My Life'.

It had been posted on the popular site 'Reddit' and has gotten a lot of attention ever since. The original post says:

Hey, I’ve been busy working on my pride and joy/side-project for the last 4 months and I think it’ll really help you guys. It’s called Shuffle My Life, and here’s the idea:
Sometimes, weekends just go by in a blur of watching TV and playing video games, and you get to the end and you’re thinking ‘where did the last 2 days go?’ – this is my solution to that problem. The app will generate random activities for you to do based on where you are, weather conditions, etc. You earn points for completing each task, and the challenge is to complete as many as you can in a row without skipping, and get a week or month-streak going. It can become a competition between you and friends to get the highest score. You’ll find your weekend unfold in a kind of ‘Wario Ware’ fashion, darting from different activities to the next but experiencing a whole lot of cool new things if you stick with it! The philosophy is ‘the more you do, the better you get at handling any kind of situation’. Hope you like it!

Some features:
– 430+ tasks, more on the way
– Tasks appear depending on location, weather and the time of day
– Filter by your time and budget, plus categories
– Hide tasks you don’t want to see again
– Google Play Games integration

Basically, it tells you what to do by suggesting random activites that you can even filter. Tasks can range from 'Buy take out' to 'Sweep the hard floors in your house'. Suddenly, you will never run out of things to do. It's a fun way to add some spice in your life and make your boring routine exciting again. It also motivates you to stick with it because it does give reward points once you complete a task and bonus points if you go on a task streak.



The first task I received was to 'Write a Haiku.' I was excited to do so because I have never written one, ever. I scrambbled for the theme of the haiku and when I finally decided, the composition was another story. I thought and thought about it, and I came up with something I'm quite satisfied with.
Gratitude themed haiku.

So far, I have cleaned my room, listened to police radio, listened to classical music and rearranged my room, things I would never have done if not for this application. I highly recommend it especially if you're feeling that you're on a rut.

This app is so interesting, I would love to try it on those days I have nothing to do, maybe it's the only way I can clean my room, haha

And the activities are random, you don't know what to expect next.

Wow that sounds like an awesome app! I always find myself sitting around binge watching Netflix because I feel like there's nothing else to do. Thanks for sharing!
