Summer Boredom, Please Help.

1 year, 10 months ago

So, this summer i’ve been feeling very bored among other things. I feel like i’m losing my summer. I’ve been more than a month out of school and more than a month is left for college to start. So I was wondering, how can I overcome this feeling? I really feel like im wasting my time, my summer.

@rocaviles, make a summer bucket list. What warm-weather activities do you like to do? Is there any place you want to go or event you want to go to? Do you like the beach, or outdoor sports, or flying RC planes, bike riding/skate or longboarding/rollerblading? Want to learn a new skill like an instrument or drawing? Do you like to read or write? Camping trip? There’s lots to do. My own problem with finding things to do is ultimately rooted in money, but if you don’t have that problem, you’re free to go out and see what you can find.

Do something you have never done before? Make a list and do one a day.

Try to stay positive and do something to shake things up. Staying around people is the number one way that I stay engaged through particular bouts of boredom. Sometimes I get sort of grounded though and it becomes difficult to motivate myself even then…just gotta stay social, mang.

@rocaviles, Stop asking and start doing. This very moment. What do you feel like doing. Sit and wait for a feeling, an inner urge. If nothing comes, dive deep into that nothing and soon that nothing will be something. Don’t search, just observe. And if something does, follow that inner passion and do.

But past the philosophical bs, go outside, go hiking, talk to strangers, be weird, do the unthinkable and unimaginable, spend less time indoors, and most importantly remember that you are a self-aware ape that is flying through space on an organic spaceship.

I’ve found the way to make best use of my time is having an attainable project list… I’ve been adding to it throughout the term. Start a new list for each holiday, so you don’t fill it up with things you haven’t done that you were gonna do last summer or whatever. I have a 2 week holiday coming up. I wrote down like 3 creative projects to do, 3 books, 2 events and ima time block in a day or two for study.
Minimal commitments (so i don’t feel like i’m rushing to complete (x) to still have time to do (y)) is what I’ve found makes me use time most effectively but experiment and do whatever works for you!

Depends on your environment. I like to bike around town and find really chill spots to smoke herb. Here in Florida we have a lot of nature conservatory (funny how we need these) areas. Creeks and woods and shit. Lots of bike paths that go no where but furthurr away from society. Go to the library and discover new music (a lot of my now favorite bands have been finds at the library). I love sifting through the collection. Check your community for great shows. My calling is to be a gardener and we have community gardens here. So whatever you’re into, see if your town has anything related going on. In doing that opens the potential to meeting like-minded people.

one of my favorite things to do in the summertime, while it is warm outside at nighttime, is to look up at the stars. on a clear night, find an outdoor spot with plenty of sky visibility and look up at them. last night i saw a shooting star too!
