    Yeah, really need stuff to do.

    Its just amazing how we've spent the last 4 months revising, the last month wishing for more revision time before the exams and a whole month having ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do. Lol

    I don't like being productive so I decided to watch some new tv just search on some of the forums about favourite tv shows and see what's popular I found game of thrones because of that and I don't regret it ... it's basically taking over my life I've got the 1st season on dvd and on repeat and ordered the books

    I joined the gym! I'm not over weight but pretty unfit so I've been going there around 4 times a week and doing work out DVD's at home. I've also dug out my Desperate Housewives boxsets and I'm gonna watch them all starting from the beginning. Been on a few road trips with friends and I also have a part time job which helps!

    I'm going to try to find a job but I'm not too optimistic as my only work experience was as a teaching assisstant and I'm shy. I may end sorting out everything in my room 10 times and ready books I intended to read but never got around to reading. It's awful going from not having enough time to revise during exams to having next to nothing to do.

    Starting today, I am trying to get into a routine of going to the gym, blogging, vlogging, working and meeting friends.

    I want to get an order to my life.

    haha I tried learning Russian, I've forgotten most of it apart from yes/no and 1-10, my name is.
    I think learning Russian is harder than what im learning (Swedish)
    Don't they have a different letter system?

    I've found the following have gone some way to relieving boredom

    - Practising accents from around the world
    - Absent-mindedly placing relatively important items in peculiar places so that I have to spend time finding them
    - Plaiting my hair
    - A 'disorder a day'. Reading about a different rare mental disorder/syndrome each day


    If things are getting really bad then occasionally I'll switch the TV on and tune into 'channel line-up' on channel 996 on Sky. It involves an audio of a man dispassionately reciting every single channel on Sky.

    Try to get a job anyway, I was really shy but getting a job has definately improved my confidence I also only had work experience at a primary school and everyone has to start somewhere!

    I feel the same way too...Promised myself to learn how to ride a scooter after exams but sadly haven't gotten myself to do it yet

    Practically rotting at home:bebored: and outing with my friends are the only thing I look forward to because I don't have to stay at home and mope around doing nothing. I know it is a bad habit to be unproductive so I'm trying to do something useful in my free time...

    I've decided to waste my summer attempting to become a chess grandmaster. Been fairly amusing so far.
    I'm doing that too!

    Aside from looking for jobs, I've been doing a lot of drawing / painting. Although I think the time I get to spend doing that will decrease as I'm prioritising learning a language, which will either be Russian or fluent Ukrainian.

    Haha I still call it a castle as well. I have no idea why they're meant to be called rooks. I thought a rook was a member of the crow family
    Rook = rukh, ancient Persian for chariot. Now you know!

    Play guitar! It's what I did after year 12 exams. I got massively addicted to it though, so it kind of made my results suffer.
