    What new things?
    Anything that seems interesting tbh. I've done quite a few martial arts, loads of different sports; picked up some skills such as painting/drawing; digital art; video editing; video gaming (mmos mostly).

    When I'm not at school or doing schoolwork or just eating dinner, I find that I'm lost. Now that I'm older, I can't remember what I used to enjoy doing. I've pondered this question a lot - I'm not joking - I have whiled away hours in my room just wondering, killing time, waiting for my life to have some meaning or significance. Please can you tell me what you do for fun?

    Video games!
    Often I find there isn't enough time in the day due to overplaying them...
    You could also learn an instrument you've always liked, like guitar or keyboard. If my powers out I always pull out my old guitar.
    Or do hard maths questions. Though this'll only appeal to certain people, it's good for your brain and can be good fun (if you like it, of course).
    I've vowed not to play videogames until after my exams, but then again, I only use them as an escape from a life I'm not happy in (I know I'm lucky compared to some people, but I can't help feeling my life could have so much more meaning - maybe I just have to wait until I'm grown up to make a difference). As for maths problems, do you know where I can find some?

    When you're poor, your options are limited, as your spare time should be used for leisure. I don't know your school/college situation, but seeing as you have spare time anyway try and get a part-time job. Get a CV, apply for retail jobs, they're always looking for people and have the lowest standards (but get a lot of applicants) so you have a shot.

    Meanwhile, you could try volunteering at a charity shop, especially if you're new to work. I mean a job isn't some foreign experience, but it gets you familiar. Since you're volunteering, you work whatever hours you want. An hour a week, 30 hours, whatever. It probably depends on the shop. A lot are really bad with multimedia (DVDs, games) so if you know about that you can make an impact.

    Libraries provide you with free books and such.

    If you're one of the lucky number of people that can get employment, you'll find your scope for what you can do drastically increases. At that point it's easier to answer your question, and £40 goes from being a huge amount of money to chump change. Your life changes when you get a wage.

    Thanks 😃 - I sure could do with a job. I've wondered about it, but I'm shy - not to mention I look like a child - I wouldn't be taken seriously. 😔

    Nah, you're not entering business deals, you're stacking shelves and whatever. Your supervisor will probably barely be 18! Rest assured, you indeed won't be taken seriously, but then neither will anyone else.
