How to keep busy while your tank is cycling

I have my new tank cycling right now. I have been doing anything to keep my mind off the tank so I can be patient and let things happen. I have finished multiple video games , researched all my future stock, anything that keeps my mind of it. So I thought this would be a good topic to see what everyone else does.

Arrange and rearrange your tank. Buy some plants and care for them.

It's got all base rock. I didn't want live because of unwanted hitchhikers. Someone really put cardboard inside their tank lol. I think even if I put pics taped on the outside it would make it worse for me lol.
