I do love the youthful exuberance
Maybe worth looking at this year's BGA ladder so far... https://www.bgaladder.co.uk/DispLadder.asp
There are certainly flights of 5 hours or more, but I dare say they have been by pilots who have been doing this for a while and not 'just' as the "cheapest way to maintain a license".
Seriously, gliding is an obsession and can become a lifestyle. I hope you do get to the level where going up for 'a few hours' would be an easy choice
