    I'm having trouble deciding what to do this summer (I know it's ages away ).
    I'd like to work an internship, but I live in a really rural area with no businesses and it's unlikely that an internship would pay enough for me to live away from home.
    So I'm going into an unbelieveavbly competitive profession, and I can't really afford not to have experience, therefore I won't have a lot of time for working to earn money.
    Also I've got a few travel plans that I'd really like, so would having a job prevent me from being flexible with time?
    What travel/work/study plans do you guys have?

    I will be doing an internship in a french law firm during the may holidays, so I don't lose out on summer time. I will hopefully be travelling quite a bit, with friends and having as much fun as possible, enjoying my summer, so I get back to college ready to knuckle down.

      work, work, and oh yeah, work. maybe one week off for vacation, but the rest it's work.

      i also might do some summer school stuff. i still haven't yet decided if i'll pick up a second job or not. if i did, i would be working...30 hours/week at my current job and at least another 25 hours/week at the second job plus two classes. i hope i don't end up killing myself...
