I've been off since mid June. Went on holiday on a cruise for the first 2 weeks of July, which was great. Loved the ship, ports and the whole experience.

I've been home since July 15th and quite frankly, I want to go back to my school. It has pretty much been Eat, Sleep, Drink, sit on the computer, Gym and repeat. Very little else. I'm off until August 21st so still another 3 weeks.

I got sent into Glasgow today to get out of the house but there isn't much here except shops and cafes.

Unfortunately, this isn't the end of long holidays as next year will be longer (leaving school in May), university (if I go) holidays are long and even on cruise ships (where I want to work), you get 2 months break between contracts. I'm dreading all of that.

Who else is in the same boat?

That's my plan as I will have 4 months (minimum) off. As for the 2 month breaks between ship contracts, that's completely different but certainly not looking forward to them.

How would I do that? I can't just go up to a random person on the street and say 'be my friend'.

I don't get why people get so excited for summer either. All I do is binge watch Netflix.

Get some more hobbies, dude.

- Play for a local sports team
- Explore local trails
- Paint- either at home, or explore your area and find places to pain outside
- Go to the cinema
- Meet up with friends
- Learn a music instrument

None, except for one guy who thinks he is my friend but I would rather cut myself and then go into a bath of vinegar than see him.

I do have acquaintances who I am looking forward to seeing again, but I never see them out of school.

Summer is what you make it. I was never bored in my summer holidays as a kid. I had loads of shows and films I wanted to watch, and when I wasn't doing that I went out with my friends all the time, to a park, swimming, shopping, anywhere. But we always had an amazing time. Also went on a lot of bike rides with them as well.

If all you do is sit inside at your computer then it will be boring, but it's down to you to make it more than that.

It sounds like you had a good social life at my age, but I don't so that makes summer enjoyment harder.

Honestly, same.
Been on summer holiday since mid June, uni starts September.

I do volunteer for the NHS - but cannot start until I've had all my injections.
I've sorted out volunteering in counselling, but unfortunately I cannot start until September anyway.
I've been looking after my nan who has cancer as well - which has been up and down.
The uni sent the reading list for the course, so I've been making my way through it.
All my friends are off elsewhere.

Even with all that.
Bored.

okay...

What about the acquaintances? Text them or something and arrange to meet up outside then. Make the most of summer while you're still young. No point wasting something you'll never get again.

I haven't got contact details for them, nor would they really want to see me anyway.

I totally understand. Doesn't sound too fun. Hope your nan does OK.

Nah, it's okay - we are getting through it. But it is terminal, so this is as okay as she'll ever be now
