Stop whinging vibhas. So you're not going " somewhere nice" for a month or so? Take a look around others in your country and be grateful for your life.

Sounds like a fit of the blues, Vibhas. Will pass, tho'never seems so.
Keep thinking, Every day passing is one day less tto my trip? I do hope you enjoy it, just finishing college etc. you will enjoy the break.

When I find myself with nothing to do that has to be done right now, I write letters to politicians to try to get them to do something about an issue I care about. As I write, my boredom disappears as my anger rises. And we've made a definite difference on some issues. Stopped a very bad law from being passed this year because of a huge letter writing campaign. And - breaking news - for those of you here who wrote letters about Geldy, the political prisoner in Turkmenistan that we and Amnesty International got transferred from the death camp, it looks like he may be released from prison altogether. Have been holding off announcing it here until I get really solid information but without those letters he would have died. Activism doesn't always work but sometimes it does.

Another thought, to add to the (mostly) good ones here.
Do you have a gym nearby? i bet doing exercise regularly - or swimming or walking regularly - would cheer you up a lot. Something to do with the 'highs' your system experiences after exercise.

I Just cannot believe it! but, I`ll agree with JTM (ON THIS OCCASION), wake up and smell the coffee man, if I had to wait only a month each time then I would be having far, far more holidays than I do at present, there are some people in this world that have NEVER had one...., Buy a book.

Get used to it. You are young, wait until you have endured it for 30, 40, 50+ years...
On the other hand, necessity is the mother of invention, and creativity. If you were constantly entertained, you would never be compelled to stimulate or expand your mind. You'd feel no need to explore the world. Just suck it up and make the best of it. The alternative is drugs or booze, both bad choices...
