    Well,

    I graduated last year and im working in a intense call centre dealing with emergencies the experience is decent, but now on my day offs I get bored. I dont know what to do, I wish something would happen, like a wedding for someone to plan for or something productive but nothing comes to mind.

    Ive been at the gym but that gets old, playstation games have gone boring too.

    What do you guys do like recent graduates ?

    Ah yeh fair enough I guess just try and do other forms of exercise like going for a run or a walk rather than going to the gym

    Are you in a relationship ?

    If you're not then maybe try dating apps or something so you could meet up with people and do things on your day off

    You're not the only one in this situation. I get bored so i'm constantly searching for a new hobby or way to reclaim the student lifestyle (but with money!).

    Lol. Hobbies and careers are hard to come by.

    Literally think of any sport and start playing it?

    Darts, pool, snooker, tennis, badminton, squash, all easy to pick up as an individual on any day you have off.

    There's team sports as well (obviously, mostly weekends)

    It's not that hobbies aren't available, you're just not looking.
