57 Things To Do When You're Bored This Summer

The first week of summer has officially passed and students all around the country (and world) are already starting to complain that they're bored. I have no plans this holiday besides my birthday and A level results day (which just happens to be on the same date!) but luckily I'm the kind of person who finds 'doing nothing' to be enjoyable. I am perfectly content in the moment without needing to 'do' different activities constantly. However, not everyone is like me - so I've compiled a handy list of 57 things to get involved in when you need to cure the boredom:

  5. I am just the same as you are - quite content with doing nothing. My Mum keeps trying to get me out to do things to 'stop me being bored' because she doesn't understand that I'm actually not bored at all, I'm perfectly happy sat doing my scrapbook and watching netflix!
    A lovely little list though :) xx
