This is meant to contrast Jimmy's thread, "Crazyness". I do not have a job, I have finished school already (I am home-schooled, so I finished my grade 12 early), and I spend all day in my room either playing my piano, listening to music, or reading these forums. I haven't taken my drivers test (and I probably won't for a while), and I have absolutely no pressing matters on hand. My daily schedule goes something like this:

6:40 am - Wake up, get dressed, hygiene.
7:00 am - Bible study.
8:00 am - Breakfast.
9:00 am-1:00 am - PW forums, piano playing, (rarely) go for a walk or roller blade, watch movie.
1:00 am - Sleep

Hey! That's the life I should be living, except it would take me a long time to get used to getting up so early.

Haha! Don't worry, kathyk, Shrek's a friend of a friend of mine. He's actually the one who recommended this site to me.

Spend more time after Bible study in prayer for guidance.

You are young, obviously, and evidently aimless. Sieze this open, free time of your life to learn and try new things. Help someone else who needs it.

Chase women, but remember that the too slow or too fast ones should be passed or not pursued.

Sleep more. less than 6 hours is not healthy for a young man (I am assuming man from the name Shrek.. If I'm wrong, please accept my apology :-))

Go to the beach. Read. Play piano more.

Most of all don't listen to the ravings of the older folks.

It sounds like you need to get out of the house.

Get a job, take some classes at a college, read books, make some friends in your area, find a new hobby or form of exercise (running for instance). Maybe even consider going to a boarding school or some type of seminar for kids your age. Go live in Europe for a few months (or years). There is plenty to do. Try talking to your parents, ie tell them how you feel and how bored you are. I'm sure they'll understand.

Good luck!

how much of that 9am - 1am is actually spent practicing the piano? Do you have any human interaction other than the posts on these forums? That you have been home schooled as well, I worry for your social development my friend! Do you plan to go to college? Here's my schedule as a contrast (I'm 28yrs old)

6:00am - alarm, shower and eat, catch morning news.
6:30am - start practicing piano
8:30am - stop practicing, get in the car and go to work (where I do software engineering for a BioMedical imaging company)
5:15pm - get home from work, chat/dinner with my girl
M/F/W:
7:00pm - leave for Taekwondo practice
8:30pm - back from Taekwondo
Monday: band practice until 11pm after TKD.

Tuesday:
go grab some beers and pizza with friends.
Thursday: 1 hour piano lesson followed by some more beers :-)

9:00pm - practice piano another hour or so.
10:00pm - watch TV, hang out with my girl.
in bed by midnight.

Weekends:
Saturday: up at 8am.. Taekwondo from 9-10:30 then laundry/housework and what not. practice piano a couple hours.
Sunday: sleep in! out for breakfast.. band practice from 3 - 7 or so..

You do have a cushy life right now Shrek, but hopefully you're not doing yourself a disservice by staying so secluded from anything else!
