    So I’m young, I have a lot of free time and a lot of it will affect my future, maybe by helping me get a good job etc.

    All my life consists of is studying for A-Levels and occasionally play video games, go gym or meet my girlfriend. I have no hobbies. No interests.

    I feel like I’m wasting a lot of precious time. I doubt I’ll have this much free time during and after university so I want to make the most of it. What can I do so I’m not wasting this valuable time?

    If you haven’t already, start on your personal statement and attend open days to explore options for you future.
    Attend a youth club if you’re bored. Take up an instrument at school maybe. Piano, violin, flute etc. If you have a bunch of spare time go to a music shop and just see what calls out to you.
    If none of that works for you, get a job. At a local shop or restaurant or something. Work experience is also great way to spend your time. Email a bunch of companies in your preferred area.
    Do you meet up with friends much? Spend time socialising

    Hope this helps

    Thank you. I’ll look into open days but I live quite far away from the major universities. I’ll look for work experience too, the problem is, I’m not sure what I want to do, I have a rough idea though.

    get more politically active, start a blog or do an EPQ/HPQ. for work experience, email your local mp to shadow them. That is also something that can be put on your ps
