Life in waiting mode - what to do?

edited August 2008 in Help / Advice Forum
Alright so I leave for uni the 16th of September.

Until then I have zit to do. Absolutely nothing. There was just a weeklong festival here where I went out almost every night and did stuff with friends constantly - even went moshing for my first time.

But now it's over and I just can't figure out what to do during weekdays. My working contract has ended and getting a new job will be impossible for just a mere 3 weeks until I leave. I just want something to do so I ask you guys this: what do people do on weekdays to fill up time?

I could naturally spend all day playing TF2 or some other random game I find but I'd rather not. I honestly don't want to play any more games as simple time wasters.

tl;dr - Bored out of my mind, what to do? No video games.

    Read books, go for walks, visit museums and exhibitions, go shopping, get lunch with friends, pick up a musical instrument, watch some movies, go for a bike ride, go to the gym, bake some cookies or dessert, do some cleaning or gardening, rent a kayak or canoë, etc.

    Just some suggestions.

    This would be feasible if not for the excessive hate of all non-medically trained/experienced personnel at hospitals.

    Oh and I don't think Sweden even has homeless shelters. Kinda how we don't have orphanages... different system of distributing the people or something. I dunno...

    But yeah I have a hard time being alone.. I only feel at ease when with friends, at the same time I'm not very good at being social. I'm weird, but nevermind that. Gonna try to do some stuff with friends, alternatively take up drawing again and try to not suck at it.

    if you like drawing, try painting, or using like charcoal or colored pencils.

    maybe you could help start a homeless shelter. ask at a church if they would like to help out, and say you'd be available to help start it. i dunno, that'd be some accomplishment.
