    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.

    Real activities like what exactly?...
    Anything that involves building real life skills in a industry/subject you like. For example I make apps, freelance graphic design and sell music.

    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?!
    Just relax and don't get any big ideas. They're not going to happen.

    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.
    College student, IMO mathlete. Suck my ****.

    About to finish college so take this from me, i was in your position not so long ago:
    Dont try to get ahead of the class in college by learning A level content during the summer, its pointless, just dont do it.
    Do try to volunteer in as many different fields as you can, not only does this help you chose what you will want to study for uni (most people end up deciding just one year from where you are now), this also looks great on university, job applications. It shows a degree of thoughtfulness as you show you've considered other opportunities.
    Do have fun, you wont be having much of that during college, education only gets harder D: (Some say its easier in uni, idk)
    Learn something new, a language a hobby, a sport, anything.
    Take a job, if you've never had one yet, its more than the money, its about the experience you gain from dealing with a whole variety of people and their temperaments, and the responsibility.

    Sounds great. I have already asked my parents but they didn't like the idea.
