Chill is a little word that does a lot. As a slang term, we use it in many different situations. The actor Chace Crawford talks about having chill parties with his cast mates from the new movie Twelve. You might also have a chill friend, or hang out in a chill spot. In all these cases, chill means relaxed, low-key, and cool.

We can also use chill as a verb. When you chill with your friends, you hang out and socialize with them. But if someone isn’t acting cool, you might tell him to chill out, or calm down. And if someone asks you “What’s up?” you might tell him you’re “just chillin’.” That means you’re not doing anything, you’re just relaxing, taking it easy.

What are some chill spots to hang out in your city or village? How often do you chill with your friends?

as for me and my job I've no chilling becuase we work at the occasions ( festivals ) , by the time i was student , was free to chill whenever i want cuz nothing to do , and I've had lots of chill spots and friend to share that outdoors together sometime those days get back , i can chill in free time of the day but as vacation or holiday it's no way as my job's rules ,,,,,, the heart and body need to have chilling to renew the body again with energy so i do slacking off at working after doing all my affairs lol ^ we can redeem chilling with slacking ^
