I am a teacher. Nowadays I spend my summer vacation. I am very boring. At the very beginning, I was very happy, I watched TV, washed cloth and did I like. But after half a month, I feel very tiresome. Can you give me some advice about my boring vacation?

Write a book! Sew a quilt! Volunteer somewhere! Get a temp job! Ah, for the days when I had "boring" time. That won't come again for at least 17 more years...

@Genipher I like your attitude. Life is too short to feel bored.

I love hiking, cycling, swimming in the summer. Pack a picnic lunch and go for a long long walk. Go to the library. Learn to knit. Learn to build something. Find some way to have fun and be refreshed when school starts.

You give me many things to do. Thank you very much. I also love swimming, I think we will become friend. I always speak Chinese, so my English is terrible. Thank you very much.

@Elizerbathe practicing English must be hard work. Today I am meeting friends for a walk, that is pretty much my favourite thing to do. Walk and talk with friends.

There is always something to do when your bored. I learned that and it's true. since you're a teacher why not learn english so you could teach it to your students. I don't know if your teaching that or not. It could not hurt though.

Maybe you could do a short course in some area and learn something new. Or take up a hobby perhaps.

Write down the five things that you've always wanted to do. Now that you have the time, you solve two problems - you get something to do so you are not bored plus, you get to do something that you've always wanted to do.

I think it's all in the mind. If you want to be not bored make up your mind not to be and find something interesting to do, perhaps take up some hobbies, learn a new language, connect and hang out with like minded folks. Just a couple of suggestions. I'm sure you can think of some more.ideas. Have a good day.

You should plan well your amateur life and enrich your leisure time. Why not have a arrange a trip? To know how incredibly huge the world is eagers me to explore it badly.

Good morning. There is so much to do during the summer vacation. You may hang out with your friends and have a travel either nearby by bike or take a train travel to somewhere far away from your hometown. I travelled with my family to our nearby city in a car and came back on the same day. It was a lot of fun though it was tiring. Now I have found my new hobby for the summer vacation, doing some mylotting at home when I have time during the summer vacation. In fact, I like my vacation for it makes me feel relaxed and free of stress out of work. I am enjoying it to the full. Have a good vacation.

Oh... How much I want to have a summer vacation! You shall enjoy your vacation well. You can even go to have a travel. And you can have more time for your own hobbies. The life is super with so much spare time. If I were you, I would never feel bored. You are so lucky.

Read more, go to the cinema, make a trip or give particular classes. Do something you would like to do but can't during the months you are working, like studying online.... and, what about a trip?

I'm sure there's something you could do. I'm sure there's some activities in your area that could be fun.

I know someone in real life who is a teacher who I use to visit sometimes she is married with kids now. So her summer is packed because of her growing family, they have a cottage and take small trips. I know how you feel I work from home but also am trying to find outside job and get bored easily. However I also suffer from depression and anxiety so that sort of adds on to how I may feel. Getting outside has helped me feel better by going to the beach I grew up beside, taking a walk or playing a game with a friend. And indoors activities for me would be writing mostly. What kind of hobbies do you have? If not many maybe find a new hobby that might interest you.

There are plenty of things you can do not to feel bored. Go outside for a walk, read a book, find a hobby that you like, as painting or sewing. There is no time to be bored.

There are a lot of things to do but it depends on your interests. Mylotting is one, this is nice place to voice out your thoughts about everything. You can also go out, take a walk or shop for food. Hang out with friends or stay in your room and read or watch movies. Clean your entire house or paint your nails. Etc.. Just know what you want.
