You’re wasting your whole summer on Netflix, says survey

Go outside you weirdo


You spend most of your summer watching films and binging on Netflix.

According to a new survey, we’re going to run out of things to do a month before uni starts.

Carried out by National Citizen Service, it found out the top ten things for teens to keep busy with over the longest holiday of the year.

They also found out that young people expect to run out of things to do by the 10th of August, over a month before uni kicks off again.

Shockingly, one in 20 teenage girls and one in 10 boys even admit they won’t spend any time at all with friends over the summer.

And your boredom is costing your parents £2,500.

Six out of 10 young people admit struggling for things to do and more and more are resorting to indoors activities, like Netflix and social media.

Other popular pursuits for our nation’s young people are chatting on social media and hanging out with friends, which they expected to spend 95 and 113 hours on respectively.

Hanging out with friends is still the most popular choice
