    I guess so then, I had a guy come in to school about it but I don't remember him saying he was from the Leeds united foundation.

    I know after this long summer after GCSEs have finished will be the last period of time for a while where I can do whatever I want, but I don't know what I want to/can do?

    Can you go camping alone in this time etc? I just wondered if there's any age restrictions and things.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Get a job. I worked all day every day through my summer, I had no chance to do anything else and I know this is sad but I literally had so much fun, I made some ace friends, I love my job and it was the best thing I have ever done. And I actually have money now so if I want to do something I can and I just felt like it made me grow up and realise who I am.

    Go abroad to work and enjoy yourself?
    What can you do abroad? Are 16 year olds allowed to do that?

    Thanks! Hahaha I may need some extra helping finding a boyfriend...

    I do have a lot of interests and I'm an avid book reader, but I want to be able to do some things which are out of my comfort zone and not to waste my last chance of freedom! Thank you for all your suggestions x
