    I've decided, since having a lot of time on my hands, that I would try and do something constructive over the summer - it seems like some people have gone travelling, but I can't do this as my money situation is a bit poor.
    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Take up a new hobby. I did, decided to get into music (keyboards) and having a ton of fun.

    Driving lessons? A part-time job over the summer? Volunteering? I want to get involved with Oxjam (Oxfam's musical branch which organises gigs for charity) in August.

    Hmmm...... get a job? o.O
    For the past 3 weeks of my holiday..... I've been going back to school for 2 weeks, to do the year book. And The 3rd week been ill (recovering). And just been at home, playing PSP, with family etc.

    Will be planning on going up north to visit relatives. Got any relatives within the country a hundred or so miles away? If so, go and spend a week or so with them

    Or another thing which I also might to do drawing or painting during my time - that's if I don't get a job. But will that also work for you - drawing/painting?
    Or even go out exploring your area, go to the park etc, photography - buy a good camera if you don't have one

    (Sorry if I'm not much helpfull, I'm a boring person ya see.)

    I do have a job, but there's not many shifts there right now - may have to look for another one.

    I have actually been going out with my SLR doing some photography, it's just hard because I'd like to explore different places but I can't drive yet and don't have much money for buses.

    I don't have any family far away really - they all live pretty near me. I was thinking of returning to drawing as I used to do it but found I didn't really have time. May start painting too, thanks

    Yes! I'm a singer myself, and I intended to get involved with it last year but couldn't because of college. How do you get involved in it?

    Find out who's your regional manager and speak to them.

    I'm quite lucky in that the regional manager for my area is none other than my sister :yep:
