That's sometimes easy. Study other subjects IN your target languages. ;-) Somehow, the
new language makes even boring topics quite fun.

Oh well, in my workplace I read Euclid's The Elements when I have a free time. It is bilingual in Greek and English. I try to read the Greek parts, but because sometimes the words just come out from my mouth, people would think that I am chanting a magic spell instead.

...when you talk to somebody at the Polyglot Gathering and the person next to you asks: What language is THAT!? I can't understand a single word!

(The language was of course Irish.:))

when you start learning a language you don't even really like just for lulz
or to broaden your perception of languages, if to think about that properly

There's a fun song teaching you how to pronounce the name of this village:

How to say Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch

It's really catchy and I learned to pronounce the whole name after listening to it for a few times.

When everyone around you is talking excitedly about Eurovision and you're despairing
because so many of the songs are in English. :(
