    Are you sure you want to work sundays? I would prefer Saturdays tbh, as it means I'll be able to go out Saturday and recover on Sunday. Also, while it may not be a huge problem in the city, you'll have to work with Sunday service buses, which are a pain.

    I suppose if you can get to sleep easily and dont drink too much it's not too bad to work Sundays, but after a night out it takes me an hour to calm down enough to sleep.
    In my experience, students rarely go out on Saturdays unless it is to the union because prices go up in all of the other bars and clubs as it is not a student night. Therefore I would suggest that the OP would be better off working Sundays as she has been doing especially because there is rarely that much to do on a Sunday. It tended to be sleep day for us so we didn't emerge from our rooms until about 4 and then stayed up most the night.

    Some stores pay time and a half for Sundays anyway. If i lost my Sunday shift when I go to uni, I'd lose about half my week's wages!

    That's a very good point!

    I was just thinking about this, if you wanted to work in an office part time surely they just wouldn't give you the job because you are going to be gone for about 5 months of the year? I am applying to a uni in London next year and have found some office type jobs I wouldlike to do and there are plenty of vacancies but London is so far away from home and I wouldn't want to stay there in the summer when everyone else has gone home
