My parents and the tv (help asap) - April 13th 2010, 12:25 PM

Hi there. Ok so heres the thing, my brother is gonna have his major exams soon (Mayish June) and its gonna determine whether or not his gonna be able to go to college. Because of him, my parents took away the tv! Well not the tv, the cable or whatever you guys call it. here we call it astro. its the thing that lets you watch mtv, disney, animal planet etc
well anway, yeah they took that away so he can revise and concentrate but now i dont have anything to do!
i can still watch dvds but the dvds we have are so boring so i borrow from the library but their even more boring and we dont really buy dvds cos my parents are too lazy to bring me to the cd shop (suckish eh?).
what do i do? im gonna have to do something other than watch tv for 2 months! and it sucks. at the moment im glued to the computer but i want something other than that to do. i can join a few after school clubs but my mum wont let me join alot cos of my brother's exams.
ARGH! i cant wait till he leaves.
i hate this. please help ):

мєєяαα. ♥

Hey Meera,
I know you hate not having anything to do. It can be a real pain! I would suggest reading a good book or going outsite to have some fun in the sun! PM me if you want to talk.

Take the tv to your room and lock your door, that's the only thing I can think about, or like the other person suggested go outside

Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.

A lot of the same shows you watch on TV are also available online. Or try reading a book, talking to friends, or spending time outdoors. Really, it's kind of unhealthy for your life to be centered around TV anyway.

Just go to IMDb.com and watch TV shows with like only 30 seconds of ads.
