This is a tried and tested mechanism for handling boredom and hopelessness. As the months of doing nothing stretch out before you, rather than letting your inactivity and the worthlessness of your existence get you down – go and smash some stuff that no-one cares about any more.

Nothing beats the simple pleasure of breaking the windows of dilapidated industrial buildings, especially if you combine this with acne and a second hand iphone with a cracked screen playing tinny music at over 140bpm, and some fags.

It may not be constructive, it certainly won’t enhance your CV, but by hanging around on deserted industrial estates you may actually spot some urban rails to session when the snow returns, and you will almost certainly enhance your credibility with the grumpy skateboarders that you want to impress (although you may have to do some skag first though to win their trust).
