    Since finishing college this year in June, I've been beyond bored. I have months of time to do whatever with as I start uni in October. I'm trying so hard to write a CV, but being so bored has resulted in running out of motivation (trying to get it finished tonight!). I used to be really shy and had social anxiety "tendencies" almost and I loved just being on computers etc all day during summer. Since college that's all been turned around and whilst I'm still passionate about computers and perusing a career in that industry, I want to do so much outside of it! I love doing stuff with mates but planning anything is so very difficult as the friendship group is so big and everyone wants to be included so it's difficult to find a good time for anything. The past two years have changed me a lot in so many ways, one being that I used to love sitting at home all day, but now I literally cannot stand it. There's so much to do in the world and it feels awful to just waste another day at home doing almost nothing.

    Does anyone else feel like this? Any advice would be appreciated

    You didn't say if you were working but if you aren't you could try different jobs with a temporary agency, like waitering, events assistant, factory work!, you can always say you have done it and understand why you never want to do it ever again! speak to some and see what they say.

    You can go on holiday to europe for really cheap, so travelling from Amsterdam to Frankfurt on the Megabus is like £5!

    I currently don't have a job. I'm finding getting one fairly confusing. What's a temporary agency? Do you have an example of a good one?

    Cheers

    You could try volunteering, go down to your local charity job and see if they need volunteers or look on this website*https://do-it.org/ to see if they have anything available near you.*
