    Anon because it's just so monumentally embarrassing. I'm pretty much a stereotype - If you've seen Paul you'll have a good idea.

    I'm in my second year, and I'm on track for a first... but, in short; I have no life. My first girlfriend was a part of my uni social group, and since then (last year) I've basically just been drifting between groups and I have the odd friendship here or there. There's no way the majority will last through the summer or even after uni.

    Summer's coming up, and I have squat to do. My plan is to basically go to the gym, apply for jobs online and if I get really desperate I'll either make a head start on next year's modules or learn some ACA/ACCA since I want to go into finance.

    I'm afraid that I'm going to waste away my summer doing absolutely nothing. I've got 4 months of nothing and no obligations whatsoever. A normal person would seize the day, but I'm absolutely terrified.

    Honestly, I did this in my first year due to monumental failing of getting a job and therefore having too much time and not enough money. I don't know how I passed the time because it was so boring. Definitely try to get some work, even if it's say 5 hours a week, it's just something. You could also see if you can join something or volunteer.

    Honestly, yes.

    My plan is, in fact, to just hit the gym, play video games, watch movies, read books and study a little (and a job, if I get one).

    But... for 5 months? Can I really cope for that long? :zomg:

    I thought this thread was gonna be about you being terrified of the hot weather because of your pale skin. What a bummer.

    On that note, I ate my breakfast in the garden :cookie:

    I know. They're classed as vulnerable people, the same as hospital patients or children.

    Wow, brave. Good luck with that.


    As for OP, come on dude, Summer's just (as Barney Stinson would say) LEGEN-DARY. The sun's out, it's warm.. ah man, I'm getting excited myself just thinking about it.

    You could always go travelling on your own if noone's willing to go with? Loads of students go on trips to do conservation work/safari work/volunteering and it'd be an amazing opportunity, and you'd make new friends whilst you're at it. Of course it depends how much money you've got but it doesn't have to be amazingly far, and if it was me I'd probably blow my student loan on doing something like that ;D.
