What to do.. Watch

    • Thread Starter

    So I seem to have a lot of free time nowadays, which is surprising when considering that all I used to hear is that AS/A Levels were an extremely busy time. I don't seem to be feeling this too much.

    I get my homework done on time, I use my free periods to my advantage, therefore leaving me with a lot of free time. So, what can I do? I feel like I'm wasting my time, and that I could be doing something more productive, either hobby-wise or for Sixth Form.

    I currently take History, Politics, Biology and English Lit.

    - Do some wider reading for a subject you particularly enjoy/that you're considering studying further
    - Do some extra work outside of homework, such as a past paper
    - Take up a sport or join a club of some description
    - Teach yourself a new skill every week, e.g. learn how to prepare a new meal from scratch, teach yourself to juggle etc
    - Start a blog or write a story
    - If you have enough time to spare every week, do some volunteering or work experience
    - Watch some films. I'm slowly trying to get through IMDb's top 250.
