Recently I've been spending the last few weeks bored as Hell. Don't get me wrong having three weeks away from Sixth Form has done me the world of good, and with another three to go (assuming I pass my AS level exams), I'm trying to enjoy each day as it comes. Unfortunately weeks of crap weather mean I haven't been able to get out and cycle, which is what I usually do in the holidays. I also don't get to spend much time with friends because, well, that's personal, any way, basically I'm stuck in doors with little to do. I was wondering if anyone had some ideas of things that can kill a few hours. Preferably ideas should be meaningful, involving a little work, if there's an opportunity to get paid, that's even better. The money just isn't coming in right now. Freelance work has many benefits but the major drawback is the long periods of zero wages.

I shouldn't be laughing at Mighty's comment. But I am.

Anyways, dear Gotha, sadly I can't help you with this one. See, I've been enduring the same exact pains of boredom as you. I've even come to miss college to an extent in which I ..I just wish I could be in society, writing on a desk. Learning. I've come.. to crave knowledge ._.

I can't find any fault in the male prostitute idea.

1) Video games. They are tried and true timesinks, and there are so many out there that it is almost impossible to deny your ability to get into one. Even browser-based games can be rather involving.
2) Bonfires (everyone loves fire, helps bring people together, only requires wood and a match, yadda yadda).
3) Lucid dreaming. Try out the DreamViews forum for more information.
4) If you feel creative, try fleshing out your interests through practicing art (music, yadda yadda), or work on a personal project (YouTube's Kip Kay and Make Magazine are pretty great for this)
5) Masturbate. If you use enough lube, nothing will go raw for a few hours.

I choose the fifth.

If you don't want herpes in you future, please ignore my previous comment.
Instead, pick a long running show, something with at least nine seasons and have a marathon.

I can't be a male prostitute, you gowta be purdy to do that. I got my novelette ready for publishing last night which kept me busy until 4 AM, but now it's being proof-read and I can't do shit until it's done! Movie marathon sounds like a good idea. Gotta think of something good, though. Something that isn't Rules of Engagement, it's the last sitcom on TV that I haven't seen every episode of.

No you don't, you just have to be willing to do some really weird stuff.

Pick up a new computer skill?

Well I suppose I could teach myself a little html again, now that I'll be imminently in ownership of a website I guess it'll be good to know in case I have to make some repairs.

WATCH: Lost, Friends, ER, Dexter, Supernatural, The L Word, Sex and the City, Breaking Bad, Dr. Who.....etc etc.

And, you don't need to have good looks to be a prostitute, I've seen some pretty shady looking girls on the street. It's all about flexibility.....and willingness to learn...

Aaaand, congrats on getting your novelette ready!!!

Lost, Friends, Dexter, Supernatural, Sex and the City and Breaking Bad are all shit to me, I've seen every episode of Doctor Who as well, as well as like, a huge proportion of the old ones.

Well I'm about as flexible as a seventy year old man, I also have a brain like a sieve so I'll forget what I learn in about half an hour. I think I should just stay away from whoring myself out.

Thank you kindly. It'll be available to buy on Kindle in a few weeks.

i remember all things. just not all at once, my brain is like a maze. You have to start down the right path to reach the various endings. For instance a lot of memories are tied to words, usually strange words. But once i hear the word the memory simply pops in and plays through.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me-- and there was no one left to speak for me.
