When nothing is happening in your life it's very frustrating. I know. I've been there. Do something your future self will be grateful for.
This is YOUR life.
You're the one who has to be proud when you look back on it.
Go out, have adventures, have fun.
Get started on reading that book, or writing one.
It honestly doesn't have to be much.
But it has to be enough to feel like you've done something.
Whether it's getting another chapter read in your book or hanging out with your friend(s) these are important features in your life that matter to you right now.
And they are important things for the future too.
When you finish reading the book you could go on to write a best seller of your own or that friend your hanging out with might someday become more.
Who knows what the future holds?
People may think what you are doing is bizzare but people are going to think what they think and believe what they believe.
It shouldn't affect you.
One day all the crowds that followed like lost sheep are going to realise this and stop following.
Don't be a sheep, you weren't made to follow the pack.
You were made to be individual and there is nothing wrong with that.
