    hiii people -

    I've just finished my GCSEs and idk what to do with my life now that I'm not revising 24/7. I've been homeschooled, and although I'm going to college in September I have hardly any friends and for that reason I have basically no plans for the entire summer, and I live in a really small town with dodgy public transport and no buses after 6 so idk what to do this summer because I don't want to just waste it sitting around on the internet doing nothing.

    I'd appreciate any suggestions! )

    get yourself a raspberry pi 3 (or earlier models). So much you can do with raspberry pi. If you don't already know how to, it will help you to learn how to programme and it will in general just teach you a hell of a lot about computers and possibly electronics if you decide to do some more hardware as opposed to software projects with it. If you are going to be stuck indoors on computers, might as well learn whilst doing it. Definitely a good idea for rainy days.

    If you have no idea what it even is, might be a good idea to get yourself a raspberry pi for dummies, or a similar kind of book, that said there is a huge amount of sources online for projects and help for beginners.

    You might end up loving it and going on to study electrical/electronic engineering or computer science related courses. If not programming is still a useful skill to have, so many jobs these days require people with good computing skills.

    Prepare for A levels?
    No joke, A Levels were the HARDEST THING I HAVE DONE IN MY LIFE. The jump from GCSE to A level is huge and personally, as someone who is about to enter his third year of uni, take it from me when I say uni is easier than A Levels...

    Aside from that, any siblings? Maybe book a day out or something, get a summer job or maybe start mingling with your mates and try and meet their mates?

    EDIT:
    Maybe pick up a hobby?

    OMG you sound exactly like me. I just finished my IGCSE's and I'm homeschooled, AND I cant go outside do to the city being unsafe(ish).
    You can check the thread that I posted on my account, there's alot of ideas I got.
