Emptiness

12 years. I’ve spent the last 12 years, at school, 8-3, every weekday.

Now I’ve finished. Now there is nothing. I have all of the free time in the world (unless I get a job but honestly it’s not looking good for me) and I have no idea what to do with myself.

It’s weird how you get so comfortable doing the same things in the same places every day for the majority of your life, and then all of a sudden… it’s just gone, and there is literally nothing you can do about it.

I’m acting like things will never be the same again, but it’s only like 2 and a half months until I start school again, and almost everything will be exactly the same as it has been for so long.I think I am slowly getting used to it, and I’m sure that this time next week it’ll be like I was never at school in the first place.

I was thinking earlier about seeing if I can go volunteer at the local library some days, just to get out of the house and give me something to do rather than just sitting at home mindlessly watching Netflix.

That’s really the only advise I have for anyone feeling the same. Get a job or volunteer somewhere just to get you out of the house and interacting with other people. But make sure you do give yourself time to rest and relax because we’ve all earned this long break from school.

  1. I haven’t finished yet, I have my last exam Monday morning, but I kinda get it already. I don’t know what to do after exams. I think I’ll try and get some of my spontaneity back (which was undoubtedly killed by GCSE art).
