Boring weekends and friend issues... - September 19th 2009, 01:36 AM

My weekends are so boring. Friday nights I don't do anything except sit on the computer. All I do is sit home bored on Saturday and maybe go to church at night with my friends if I don't go to church I sit around bored all day. Then Sunday I go grocery shopping/running errands with my parents and then I sit around bored.


It sux I really can't do anything. Both of my parents work and they have the car so they can't take me anyplace and I don't have my license yet. None of my friends drive either. Also My "friends" never invite me to do anything. Also I don't have any money and my parents very rarely give me money to go places and I can't get a job... I am just sick of being bored all the time. I should be out having fun...

I'm annoyed, all my friend have there own groups of friend that don't involve me....

Its dumb like they are my friends but on the weekends they hang out with there groups of friends that don't include me. Here are some examples:

My friends John and Brittany on the weekends go to movies and stuff with there other friends but never invite me.

My friend Kara on the weekends always goes to parties with her other friends.

My friend Bree is always hanging out with her group of friends and her boyfriend and again they never invites me.

My friend Shelley always has friends over or is going some place with her other friends but she never invites me.

Hi Courtney,

I completely understand what having a boring weekend is like, especially when friends also hang out with other people and it's hard to get out anywhere. I do have a few ideas you could try, though.

I know you keep saying that your friends don't invite you to go hang out with them, but have you tried inviting them over? Maybe you could host a movie night at your house and get all of your friends to bring their favourite movie that you can vote on to watch. Also, if you feel like getting to know your friends' other friends, you could say that they could bring someone along if they want to. That way you can introduce yourself and see if you would like spending time with them. Who knows? They may decide to invite you along when they hang out the next time. I'd say it's worth a shot.

Not having a car is difficult, and I completely understand that because my family only has one car too. Is there any way you could take public transportation, like the bus, to an activity or a job? Communities generally have a list of activities going on posted in a library or community centre, and most of them are fairly cheap, so if you can get to those places you could try doing that on weekends. And if the weather is good- and if the place is in a reasonable distance, then you could bike or walk instead.

Also, this could be your chance to take up a hobby. If you like or would like to try cooking, maybe you could plan out a meal for your family and prepare it for them. Or if there is an art you are interested in, you could pursue it. There are a lot of things you can do on your own, if your friends are busy.

If money is an issue, then keep your eyes open for a job within busing or walking distance of you. I know you say you can't get a job right now, but if you have all this free time on weekends, it might be worth a try. You could always see if you can only work weekend hours. There might be a job on the way to your parents' workplaces as well, so you could car pool.

I hope that everything goes well for you and you are able to find something you enjoy doing on the weekend.

Take care.
Nat.

The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?

Thanks =)

The bus does not come out my way and the only thing that is in walking distance of my house is a sub shop and a convince store. I have already tried to look for a job over the summer and my parents don't want me to have a job during the school year.

Hey, you're that girl who goes to the community pool, right?
Well, I'm pretty much in the same situation as you, and I decided that next summer, I'm going to be a lifeguard at my local pool.

Maybe you should try and be one next summer? It'll give you time away from these 'friends' you have right now, and you could meet other lifeguards there, who are bound to be your age.

(My neighborhood 'friends' are terrible too, so I try everything just to get away from them. Getting a job at the pool might be a long way off, but you have a ton of stuff to look forward to, including college.)
