    Inequality and how selfish humans can be.
    By Googling the things you are angry about and 'campaign', you might find like-minded people. Do you care enough to try to find a campaign body that is aligned with your views and help them, perhaps by writing articles for them or doing some research online?

    I try and research hard statistics about the extent of inequality in our society due to my EPQ, which is related to it. Also, if I have time I'd love to, although my writing probably wouldn't suffice.

    Have you tried reading for fun? It may sound boring but I don't know what opportunities you have to spice up your life (money/location wise). I live vicariously through characters in books during my studies when I don't have much free time. I saw you like science, have you read Chris Hadfield's book it's really inspirational. Wordery do a free book giveaway thread too, I've got one on there (I never win anything) in case you think you never win!

    If it makes you feel better, most people aren't doing anything exciting with their lives. 80% of what you read on Facebook and things is just people telling you what they want you to believe so take it with a pinch of salt. (If they're having so much fun drinking or traveling or in their relationship, why do you need to Facebook about it? Why not be busy being happy?)

    Yeah I used to be a BIG reader, maybe I should pick up some new books soon. Have any suggestions within the fantasy genre?

    Definitely take up reading again then! It's great escapism. Have you read the Game of Thrones series?? Book 1 is the best one. It's long but each chapter is a character's POV so I just saw it as a collection of interwoven short stories so it was less intimidating. Terry Pratchett is amazing too, really witty. Mort is my favourite. Neil Gaiman and Ursula Le Guin write good fantasy apparently but I'm not sure if they would be 'sci-fi'. Hmmmm. Have you read any by Tolkein? He's a good classic.

    Brave New World might be worth a try too? Technically it's fantasy and it might be helpful if you have a conversation about ethics in science.

    I've read a lot of Tolkien, but have yet to pick up the Smithsonian. Thanks for the suggestions!

    I'm bored of my avatar. What could I change it to that's a bit, to use a term that is age-inappropriate for me, 'edgy'?
    I'm regretting changing it from this Name:  Charlie.png

    You must change it back, the avatar was your staple. You must never change it again lest you go astray from the path of edginess

    Although very different, George Orwell's 1984 goes with Brave New World. Both are essential reading, when one is ready to read them.

    Both will change how you think about society for the rest of your life.

    I can say in all honesty "I have been to the edge and I looked down".

    It made me afraid.

    Thank you for releasing me.
