Playing video games too much
I do quite a bit of sport, 12-15 hours a week not counting in-school PE but now, since it's the summer holidays, I don't have any sport on, and I'm not part of any "groups" or churches etc. This means that from 1-2 weeks ago to 5-6 weeks from now, I have nothing to do. Apart from video games. This is my problem, I have friends over, have fun, and when they leave... I just don't know what to do. I've been thinking alot about how little of my childhood is left and every hour I spend on a video game, I can't help thinking "It's all going to waste...".
I really want to spend more time with my parents, as I feel ungrateful for all the things they do for me, but I don't know what to DO with them. When I ask my parents "what can I do apart from the computer" they will reply with "go kick a ball, go read a book! Go jump on the trampoline!". I do these things, but I don't find any of them fun or entertaining (apart from reading).
I'm sorry if this doesn't make sense, I guess I'm just asking:
1)What can I do with my parents? I love them and I want to spend more time with them
2)What can I do apart from video games, should I restrict myself and have "video game free days" or even weeks?
3)What can I do to help people in general?
