    im extremely lost right now. im really hating A levels atm partly because its boring, i dont 'fit' in with people, like i dont like or connect with people in the sixth form, im trying to figure out who i am as a person and i have no idea what i want to do in life/the future... i dont find A levels hard its just really boring and i dont find anything interesting, at all, everything seems so uninteresting even though ive tried to search into different career paths that will lead me to different things. and it makes it, even more, harder to have to go sixth form every day because i don't like anyone in it, they're all so boring and don't do anything fun or exciting, i have a few friends i stick with but i have to force myself into the conversation and its not like i can make new friends because pretty much everyone in the sixth form i have talked to and gotten to know are boring and just not like me, like we dont 'click'. what should i do? i can't just leave because i need A levels as a foundation qualification (although i did well in my GCSEs) and my parents won't let me anyway and i agree as i have no further plans or interests or clue what i should do next or get into. all of this is making me more sad and depressed, the fact that i dont have good close friends i get along with and that im losing interest in everything and ive just become such a dull boring person too. as well as having no motivation or plans for the future. (im in yr 12 btw).

    Do you have job? Hobbies? Maybe volunteer?
    Is this disinterest and finding people boring something you've always struggled with or is it new to you? Maybe try takking to someone about it.
    You need a bit of a goal in mind to feel aome motivation for the future.

    This is so sad to here , but trust me things will only improve . You have one year of a levels , I recommended you to take a gap year and travel and find out who you are this will benefit your wellbeing . What job you want will come to you naturally . But for now do volunteering spend time with family and concentrate on your education . So when the time is right when you have a gao year / uni you will feel so much better !! Best luck

    Just get through your A-levels. Once you finish them you will have so much more free time and you’ll end up having to use it more productively.
    Also lighten up a bit.

    pretty much anything that comes up in my recommended... sometimes they are quite helpful/educational in the way that i learn about different parts of the world. like geographical / nature videos, lots of cooking videos and food videos, mini-documentaries sometimes - all sorts. ( im not into any of that vlog stuff tho and i dont watch specific YouTubers like zoella :P )
    and tv shows i watch some anime here and there lots of crime tv shows - sometimes real life documentary type of tv shows based on true stories - tv shows that have different concepts and plot twists - mainly psychological thriller and mystery. and its the same for movies (i usually watch more movies than tv shows)- psychological - thriller - crime-mystery movies. but i dont mind watching any movie tbh - i like almost all movies and can watch pretty much anything (but i prefer mystery - thriller etc stuff).
