i'm on my summer vacation right now and i can't seem to find anything fulfilling to do! (maybe it's cuz i'm lazy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">) but i'm open to suggestions on how to pass my time fruitfully. so far, i'm been venturing out about noon time to a random cafe, eat lunch, people-watch and *trying* to study for my GRE (without much success cuz i'm so easily distracted). but after 3 days, i am ready for a change. i'm a foreign student and don't have a work permit yet so i can't get a job legally <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">. i may volunteer my time to a food-distribution center, as soon as i find out more details. but hurl any suggestions my way! thanks!!

Volunteering is a great idea! I volunteer at the local animal shelter and I love it! There's nothing like getting puppy kisses to get rid of any bad day.

Hey I have been finished university for two years now and I keep saying I'm going to take the GRE that summer. And the books are still in my bookshelf...I do have a full time job and I'm always acting or helping backstage at the local theatre so I don't have tons of free time....but if you wanted to discuss the GRE at any point let me know I could use the extra push to get started...Other than that. I love crafts-quilts and knitting. You could get your holiday gifts done over the summer....hmm I'll keep thinking...

Vollunteering is fun too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> You could check out meetup.org and look for a vegan/vegetarian meetup...I just went to one, very fun. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Or if Earthsave is active in your area. They throw fun potlucks.<br><br><br><br>
If you have artistic skills, go to the park and draw, paint, whatever. Funnn.<br><br><br><br>
Checking out the local "alternative" newspapers could be fun too.

There are lots of books to read, maybe spend an afternoon in a library or bookstore; rent some movies you've always wanted to see; look into what's going down in your state/city politics; write to/look up an old friend or tie up some unfinished personal busines; visit lonely aged folks in retirment homes/hospitals; call or visit cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents you haven't spoken to in a while; take up a summer sport, joining a city league -- great way to meet new people!; visit a museum or special exhibit; go see a play -- it's worth it!; volunteer to help in the campaign of a favorite political candidate (hint: Kucinich!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">); have a party or get together with friends, family, or both. Play games, BBQ, have snacks, have a movie marathon -- that's lots of fun.<br><br>
There's lots to do!<br><br><br><br>
Have a great summer.
