    For as long as I can remember I have always got excited about the school/college holidays, only to hate them when they arrive. I find that having nothing to do makes me think too hard about my life :lol: Does anyone else ever get this feeling?

    You like to keep busy, right? Nothing wrong with that. A lot of people don't really like lots of down time.

    Yeah I guess being busy is something I do enjoy. Mostly because I can't stop and think though :lol: Just sitting around gets me down, and it's not even because I want to be doing something - I very much enjoy the idea of sitting around and doing nothing. It's simply because I feel I can't because otherwise I get low. I think maybe it's inherited - my mother is very much the same. Whenever I tell my friends I prefer term time they look at me funny. :lol:

    Oh yeah, you gotta keep busy when on break. I do lots of yoga and excercise so I don't get too anxious

    Maybe that's where I'm going wrong. I'm the least active person on the planet, you see. :lol: I do keep meaning to start going for runs, and going to the college gym, and eating healthy, but... well I have no excuse :lol:

    I have the problem of wanting classes to end because it's so much stress, and then when I'm on break, I get bored.

    Meh, enjoy your break while you can. I'm making the transition to adulting and you'll miss the time you used to get off like school holidays....

    I used to like holidays as that would mean I get to watch all the anime I want! But now I just want to go back to school. I have like 4 and half weeks left and you can only have so much anime before you get bored and I am already at that point of being bored. So yes I really hate the holidays as I don't do anything and it gets really boring.

    The only reason I would dislike them is because the neighbours' kids are freaking annoying, playing out until really late and making lots of noise.

    I too hate the holidays as well. Those individuals who are aware of this still have a problem believing I do. Among other reasons, the main one being that after my partner passed away, I lost the enthusiasm that I used to have for the holidays and since then although I do get invited out or to holiday dinners, I still get very depressed when the holidays come around.

    Same, I don't like being at a loose end with nothing to do. It's during the holidays that I realise that I function better under stress. I get pretty bored, but I have a maths tutor now who sets me things to do, this helps me a lot.

    You are too young to yell at them to step off your... :icon_wink

    I'm with Austin, I do miss holidays as a kid. My world didn't end when school was over... Hell, that was when my real life, my world started...

    If you are not active, then you can use the time to enjoy a good book, or watch a movie, or just hang out with your friends. There are always plenty of things to do...

    Or you could volunteer, so you get to know new people and do something good for both yourself and your comunity.

    Think that's better than staring at a wall...

    I haven't like them for the better part of a decade now. And every passing year I dislike them more. I used to really like fire works, now I wish they would ban the damn things. Black Friday just makes me ill, lets spend a entire day saying what we are thankful for, then beat the crap out of people to buy more shit the following day.

    Definitely! I always get lonely when I'm away from school for too long, and I get that 'summertime sadness' and boredom.

    Nah, I enjoy relaxing, watching tv and sipping hot chocolate with marshmallows. Ah! I love the holidays.

    Sometimes whenever I start thinking too much about myself and obsess over small things but normally I can find something to do/someone to hang out or talk with.

    I enjoyed summer holidays. I spent free time playing video games and reading/studying whatever I wanted

    I feel sad if I stay seated at a desk for ages

    No, I've always loved any vacation I get. I'm not a person who can be easily bored. One of the reasons is that I'm always reading and I have a never-ending list of books that I want to read. Time off is the perfect time to get a lot of reading done.
