    2 months =/ Finish this Wednesday, the 15th and Semester B starts on the 15th of Feb. Too long if you ask me.
    2 months. U are lucky. But, also that is far too long imo. What do you do with all that time? What University do you attend?

    Glasgow. 3 weeks.
    Although, for the past week and this week coming we're on a sort of study leave for exams. Lectures finished at the end of November.

    I really only had to be in for one lesson this week, and last week was a snow WEEK, and next week I'm only in Wednesday, and got a hand in on Friday. Then got a hand in on the 4th January, and more hand-in's on the 10th. So I think officially it's like 2 weeks, but because of how its all worked out (and two lessons and the hand in dates taken out of it), I'll have had 6 weeks off.

    They're life-destroyers :mad:

    I actually see myself working on Christmas day.

    Ah well, I hope it gets better, apparently 2nd year is the worst.

    Well, I was speaking for my course I have no idea what yours is like.

    My first year wasnt exactly a walk in the park either, it was ~10 exams after christmas. Anyways, maybe it might all be worth it in the end.

    Good luck, and get off TSR and study!!

    5 weeks in theory (16th Dec- 24th Jan) but we have an assignment due in on the 10th of Jan and I've got sports team practices that start on the 9th so I'm only going home for three weeks.

    It is way too long. I'm gonna get looking for a job for a bit of extra money in my back pocket, even if it's somewhere like McDonald's or part-time in a bar, money's money.

    If that fails, then, I dunno, probably read all the books on my shelf and sleep lots.

    I go to UEL.

    Well let me just warn you that if you want to go to a uni that's well organised and doesn't tell you that you haven't emailed work to them when you have pictorial fact that you have, don't come here.

    Some teachers are good but a select few can be right words-which-cannot-be-said-on-here.
