    You're 13, right? We should let members know that first. :)

    Calculate more digits of π. Five is nothing for a real geek.

    You're 13. Grab a camera and go outside taking pictures of houses with the number 13 on them. Every day take exactly 13 pictures, never of the same house twice. Do that for 13 days, and use the rest to put the pictures together in a portfolio, presentation, mosaic, slideshow, or some other creative way.
    See if you can get 13 friends to do the same thing.

    Apart from Doug Huffman's excellent suggestion (to which I'd add: resolve not to scream at, or otherwise disrespect, your long suffering elders, and try to be less of a selfish dick/twat at that time of year), I'd suggest: try to master something new.

    Since you're posting at a physics forum, I presume you're interested in physics? How about maths? Are you interested enough in both those things to try some basic mathematical physics for yourself? E.g., special relativity?

    OK, better than 13. :D

    Have you encountered calculus yet? (You'll need it to start doing relativity properly...)

    thank you Evo,and i have encountered a little bit of calculus mostly in books that i read in my free time not in school yet but will in a few years

    Would you consider doing some kind of volunteer work?? It can be very rewarding. It also looks good on a college app. .)

    Certainly reading and movies are possibilities, or just hang out with friends and family. One could do volunteer work at a food kitchen.

    Depending on where one lives, one could go to the beach. Most areas are probably cold, especially in the west and north, otherwise, I'd recommend hiking or climbing in the mountains.

    If one has the income, one could go to the Caribbean or Central or S. America, or Africa, or Australia or NZ. I think one of my nieces is in Africa at the moment scouting out some business opportunities.

    You could become an honorary Atheist and join my campaign to abolish Christmas before you get too deeply indoctrinated.
