    Have a week or two off. Do fun stuff and relax. Treat yourself. Holiday!

    But use the remainder wisely. If you want to, work. That's the best option. Even if you don't work, get a volunteer position somewhere. Join clubs and activities. Try new things. Learn new things - in this summer I'll be doing some online courses for coding and psychology, just because I can.

    Future employers/your college will wonder why you spent the whole summer on the couch watching Netflix. This is THE time to do something! The more experience the more success. Experience does not hurt.

    This is your opportunity to try new things and to be independent. Be an adult. Take responsibility, take risks, try stuff.

    (Or you could just have fun and do nothing. But you shouldn't!)

    Thank you for this. I am going to volunteer and gain work experience.
    Thing is... I don't want to grow up. I'm not ready to grow up.

    I feel exactly the same. I hate it. I don't *want* to have to start doing work and volunteering and courses. I want it to be like in Year 5 or whatever when the summer was only fun and games and sun and no future - bit unfortunately that future has arrived :-/ So it's time to make the best of it!

    Worry about how education is nearly over and how you need to start doing something with your life or you will be a dishonour to your family and disappoint everyone who has put their faith in you.




    Oh sorry I was writing in the wrong person.

    I had my last exam today and now it's the summer holidays for me.
    I can't just sit around all day drinking and feeling like i'm the coolest person ever or feeling sorry for myself whilst I listen to Radiohead or Metallica or watch films and TV.
    I have applied for jobs and I have an induction next week. And I'm also having a massive party on Saturday and we are all celebrating and all my friends are bringing their boyfriends :/
    Apart from that, what the hell am I meant to do with my Summer?!
    If your GCSE grades are really good then apply to a sixth form and apply to the courses you enjoy or want to become eg Chemistry, biology, physics and maths. Iy you have really **** GCSEs then just go to a college (it is where dumb people go after GCSE, When you have finished sixth form with some good A levels go and apply to a university. when you finished your course at uni. then go have a good time.
