How can I be productive in my boredom?

So here's the situation. Summer holidays, the planned job I would've had ends up not happening. I have nothing to do during the week (originally I'd be out longboarding every day but a couple of mates got jobs etc, now weekends are only available for that kind of thing). I'm currently searching for summer work, but a back injury I got a while back stops me from doing anything too physical for extended periods, which rules out like 70% of the jobs available.

 

I don't want to play video games or read books all summer, I want to get out and be active, or actually doing something useful. Learning a new skill would be fantastic. Any suggestions?

I had a similar problem last Summer, I just had a routine and I found that as long as I had that I had something to do. I don't know exactly what you should do.

Learn a language. Or, at least, finish the first stage of learning one, or increase your proficiency of one you've studied in the past. If you have almost all of that free time to yourself and the language in question is one that is relatively similar to English, you should be able to make a satisfying amount of progress.

 

I'm not sure about the "being active" part, though.

Depending on whether you have any $, or plans for them if you do,it must be nearly time for you to be looking at getting a vehicle anyway.

Picking up a cheaper ( but overall better class of) car/ute & fixing it up yourself will help in the long run & mean you know what to do down the track when service etc is needed. Even if the driving isnt legal yet, can't hurt to provide incentive & know its ready when you are allowed.

Lol mate, I've held a full driver's license for two years and already have my own car.

Just rechecked the profile, oops.

Mentally had you pegged @ 17, so the sentiment was right for the age things were done, if not the reality of the dates.

Health issues aside, if you are thinking of trade work in the future (even as only a backup) it might be worth checking into & doing a few tickets like forklift, RSA/RSG, WHS/First aid - having that paperwork already done can help in the hunt.
