    It looks really nice aswell!! Whats the kind of traditional food over there? Its so cool eating foods in different countries it makes a good change.

    And LSE (hopefully if i get the results) yourself? And yeah i tried a summer placement at law firms but they usually only take students who are already at university (sucks) but i dont think i will be able to find a job anywhere close to where i live. Im trying to ask a few local small firms if i can volunteer.
    Yeah Hong Kongs actually quite an exiciting place! The food is described quite well in this article I found: The fusion of east and west also characterises Hong Kong's cuisine, where dim sum, hot pot, and fast food restaurants coexist with haute cuisine

    If I had to pick one cuiseine to eat for the rest of my life itd have to be Japanese tho! :coma:

    And wow LSE is a really good uni so that should be good! Im applying to mainly bath, birmingham and reading for an accounting course with the big 4, I get paid to study under a cool new course! I can even get charted status within 5 years

    Spending it how I usually spend my summers - relaxing, have a few days out and moan about it being too warm

    I've got my driving test in August as well. Hoping to pass first time but not getting my hopes up :laugh:

    Looking for employment ini. Still in two minds whether I'll go back to uni for fall as well...
    But for now I'm going to be tutored in Microsoft XL shouldn't be stressful, and then apply for some jobs. I can't apply, I feel, before I brush up on XL though. I want to clean myself up and start doing administrative work in my field of study this summer.
    So if I don't go uni again I'll be sorted with employment ideally.

    In between that, sleeping my arse off.

    Chillax with friends, finally start a Youtube channel, hit the gym (I said this last summer), watch all of the movies/ shows I've missed out on, explore my area a bit more and generally just relax.

    Since exams have finished or atleast on the verge of finishing that means Summer for students has almost begun for some it has already begun.

    So how is everyone spending their long summer??

    Are you going on Holiday, do you have anything planned?

    Interested to know what others are doing and may gives people ideas to do different things etc etc
    Study and Stress basically.

    jk, not all the time. although I am still doing that.

    But, I am also planning to do some volunteering and extra-curricular, finish my personal statement and perhaps get back into writing and make myself more articulate. And maybe finally get around to binge-watching Fate/Zero, Game of Throne, Pretty Little Liars and Guilty Crown.

    Learning to drive, doing some stuff for an EPQ, then quite probably spending too much time home alone and driving myself insane very gradually.

    All good stuff.

    It's the first time I am travelling by myself lol and I am so excited, but also slightly terrified -- but I'm going to Myanmar (Burma) for about 4 weeks to do some volunteering with a few organisations and also, hopefully, will be able to do some volunteering locally as well ! Once I arrive back though, I'm off to NCS already ..

    Also, has anyone actually done NCS before? I've heard quite a wide range of things about it and honestly not sure what to expect.
