    Work if I still have my job, if not get in as much volunteering as I can get before I go. Also I need to improve my identification skills before I go so I'll have to practice identifying trees and plants. Also I want to be able to identify different types of butterfly so thats going to be a main thing.

    I should really spend the whole summer working, and I probably will try and get in about 20 hours a week to save. I'm going to Amsterdam as soon as exams are up, spending time with our friends before we all go our separate ways, performing in the Edinburgh Fringe and generally getting excited x

    Not a lot really, probably just relaxing and sorting stuff out for uni. Got a family holiday in July/August. A week in Northumberland, then a week in the lake district.

    My friend is going to Paris with a friend from her work. I however have financial constraints.

    Apart from that work around 40 hours a week so I can take £1000+ with me to university as I currently have £0 saved!

    I need to find some cheap/exciting places that my friends/my boyfriend and I can go

    Apart from that, probably going out in Newcastle a lot, roadtrips, hopefully doing some volunteering at a local Roman Museum, attending (but not hosting ) lots of house parties, hopefully getting close to passing my driving test, reading lots, going to the south of France with my family and maybe Paris for a belated birthday present...but yeah.

    No doubt sleeping and watching a lot of Jeremy Kyle, too

    Most of summer will be spent thinking

    'I really want to go to uni this year, hope I get in'

    'how long till results'

    'I NEED to go to uni soooo bad'

    'why didn't I revise more '


    Then lots of work to get money (hopefully about 20 hours a week)
    holidays with friends
    Generally going out
    Buying stuff for uni, and then getting even more worried i wont get in.

    Well all of it until august the 18th will be spent in fear. Than depending on what that day brings the remainder will be spent in either excitement or depression.
