    Since school, I have had so much free time though 4 years of university and a year out. Throughout all of that time, my uni workload hasn't been that great and uni only lasts 5-6 months a year and there's massive holidays. I play sport 2-3 days a week in the summer and have a bit of training in the winter. I go to the gym occasionally. I socialise very infrequently. So I literally spend so much time on a coach/chair/bed in front of TV all day, every day. I know a lot of people do this but not sometimes 12 hours a day!

    Is there anyone else like this?

    I'm exactly like that during the summer. I think it's because I'm off uni and I've literally got no work to do for my course(which I'm glad of, since I'm usually bombarded with coursework during term time). So even though I feel like I'm sitting on my backside all day during summer, I cherish the peacefulness of those months. I'm not ashamed to admit it.

    Also, ever since I finished secondary school I've found myself wanting to socialise less and less every year, idk. I've grown to love my own company, I guess!

    That used to be me essentially, watch TV, play games, on Internet all day, partly why I descended to alcoholism. But I had fun, don't feel you 'need' to be busy, you don't! Unless the boredom bores you, then do something about it!

    Yup, I lie down all day not doing things.
    For a different reason than you.

    It's pretty tough when you have a desk job too and you're sat most of the day at work. You get home and then sit in front of the TV/laptop.

    Should find time to go to the gym but I'd miss my couch.

    No: sometimes my breakneck pace of life will begin to falter, and I'll understandably need to lie down for one, two, maybe five hours before resuming the onslaught.

    I wholeheartedly recommend cycling to work, assuming you're within sensible commuting range (i.e. not more than fifteen miles or so).

    I've just graduated and am looking for a job, but I'm trying to stay out as much as possible, by going to my Uni's careers advisor and just constantly making my CVs and Cover Letters better if I can. I'm hoping something will come my way soon, but for now I'm trying to do as much as I can with people and stay social for as cheap as possible so that I don't get really sad and down.

    Why?
    Spinal stress fractures and scoliosis.
    If I get up and walk around I end up in tons of pain.

    That's really sad sorry to hear. So do you live with your family or? And how do you pay for living?

    I work in London so there is no chance I'd cycle to work. I'm not a great cyclist and I don't have a death wish. I did see the splattered remains of someone on the road when I went out to get lunch once. Really not great..

    I had so many good intensions for the summer.. I was going to volunteer loads but then on my first day if volunteering.. BAM massive panic attack. I had changed my medication and felt ill for all of July. It put me off so much that all of a sudden it's September and I've done nothing!
    Well except go to the gym I'm soooo excited for uni to start up!
