    Everyday is the same, wake up, go to college, come home, do some work, watch TV, scroll Tumblr, repeat. Nothing ever changes and I don't know what to do. I cannot see it ever changing and I really don't have the motivation to do anything. This makes me sound really depressed but I don't think I am, I'm just so bored of everything. I'm currently failing 1 or my 3 a levels and this time last year that would have scared the **** out of me, but now I cannot care less. I have absolutely know idea what I'm going to do after college, nothing interests me and I have no passion for anything. I never really have much energy, I mean I'm not tired or sleeping, just fed up and cannot be bothered. This is making me sound like a typical lazy teenager but when I was doing my GCSE's I was working so hard and got really high grades. Now my parents have high expectations and whenever I say I don't know what to do after college and ask my future they always roll their eyes and huff. I don't want to let them down, but there's nothing I can do to make them proud any more.

    I would maybe speak to your teacher about the subject you're struggling with to see if they have any advice or extra resources for you. After college there's loads of things you could do, university, apprenticeships, gap year or a job. Maybe if you're unsure at this stage, a gap year would be a good idea, it would give you time to think about what you really want to do, and there's loads of options available like travelling. You're definitely not failing at life, everyone feels demotivated at some stage at college, don't worry about it!

    Hope this helps
