Use the time productively

Watching too much TV will make you feel like your life is going nowhere. I would use the time to focus on things you have always wanted to do but haven't had time for - house projects, etc. You can also use the time to focus on gaining new job skills to add to your resume. This summer I took all of the Microsoft Office online training courses for programs like Access and Publisher, which I didn't know well before. Then I added them to my resume.
You can also do some productive reading and even try to learn a new language. You can volunteer your time for a cause you feel strongly about
