Nummi-Pusula doesn't have that many organized freetime activities. There are a few houses that are opened for the youth every Tuesday and Thursday. Some sports such as basketball and tennis are held in some of the school gyms throughout the week, but you can't really fill your weeks up with sports. If you for example love football, you are happy to get to play football twice a week. Of course there's an option to do sports in our school, but two hours a week isn't really enough for a youngster that is dead-serious about sports.
One option is to join the scouts, which fills your week up with one meet a week and occasional trips that last over the weekend. In scouts, you learn a lot about camplife, you get to build up fires and learn how to make food on it. You also learn many knots and lots of other scouts-stuff. You can join the voluntary fire-brigade and learn a lot about fires and how to extinguish them. After a lot of time in the fire-brigade, you can even join the brigade as they rush to fight the fires around Nummi-Pusula.
So, because there aren't that many organized activities in Nummi-Pusula, the youth have created hobbies on their own. Some drive and tune up their mopeds, some read book all day long, some gather a group of their friends together and form a band. So, one thing I have learned in Nummi-Pusula for sure is that you don't really need much to get your time to go by. Nowadays it's hard to have time for everything you want to do. You have your band trainings, you have to do a lot of homework but you also would like to chat with your friends over the internet and listen to some music with your computer! You can always think of something to do. Just think of things you can do, not off stuff you can't.
