    4 months without any mental/intellectual stimulation is really taking a toll on me. 99% of the day is spent on TSR, Facebook, watching films and sorting out my UCAS. My sleeping patterns are shameful, i'm questioning whether i'm a vampire :lolwut:! I don't even remember the last time I picked up a book. My grammar/spelling is terrible..I don't eat alot, and i'm indoors ALL the time. What's worse, i'm on a gap yah..lord help me. On the bright after all this freaken UCAS + UKCAT is out on the way, i'll be off to the Big Apple.

    I feel like my brain cells are buring away? How should I stop this ugly way of living? It is just a faze?

    Start reading lots of (moderately intellectual) books and spend less time on Facebook and TSR.

    I'm off to NY in the next 4 weeks; i'm going to sound like a spoilt little brat but mummy's paying for me. I think she feels sorry for me..lol. I need to clear my head so this is the best time for me to travel. I have family there so it's all good (Y). When I come back i'll be working my ass off to save up for uni and driving lessons. On your sig it says you're applying to Nottingham, same!

    I've got this feeling and I'm at university. If it wasn't for my manic note-taking, I don't think I'd have a clue what's been said in my lectures so far.

    Wow lucky youuu! I wish i could do that, travel and stuff. But i have to pay for my own though. Im working a lot right now actually, but even if i make good money, its still not enough. Oh well, im gonna try and save as much as i can before i go there for next year. And hopefully i get a student visa and not have any problems with it. :P

    Good luck on your trip!!! Im sure you'll have a blast! NY is beautiful! What course are you applying for in nottingham?

    Eugh I feel exactly the same, even though I will start uni in two weeks the several months since exams finished I haven't read a book, read a newspaper, looked at the news, written anything, read none of the prelimenary reading, done sweet fa, just worked, gone out down the pub most weeknights and out out on the weekends, and napping.
    I am doing politics so I think I better get back on the ball with the news and that, I just cannot be ******, and feel pretty stupid now. I used to debate current affairs reguarly on here and in the MUN, but have just lost all motivation to do anything stimulating.
    Saying that once I am back in the swing of learning i'll be fine. I dread to think the state of any gap yearers after the year.
