    Hi TSR!

    I am currently half way through my Gap Year. I've been working as a librarian for 6 months, yet I've also cycled across Southern Britain, gone to Iceland to see the Northern Lights, volunteered teaching English in Costa Rica for a month and spent a week in Canada sightseeing the Niagara Falls. I've also written a book and learnt Spanish, passed my driving test and I'm in training to become a radio presenter -

    However! I am now back, in my room, in my tiny village of Sussex, and I am so bored! I never really thought to plan after the whole Costa Rica thing which I came back from about 3 weeks ago.

    Although it appears like I have done a lot in my gap year, I have simply got nothing to do from April until September until I go to Uni and this thought scares me greatly. Like, it's actually pretty depressing, ever since I've come back from Costa Rica I've had the blues and I just want to get back to doing SOMETHING, ANYTHING!

    I've got about £700 in my bank, but I'm not sure what to do, where to go, whether to stay at home and work or volunteer or go abroad or whatever. I want to become a teacher after my degree - is it easy to get work experience, like in my old school?

    If anyone has any ideas, they would be much appreciated .

    I have an idea (where to write a letter and what to ask for). But only if you are worth person. In such a way, it would be nice to Skype and see you in details. I don't trust to strangers, and Skype improves relations.

    Maybe get a job to fund a teaching volunteer project abroad, this will give you work experience which will be a start

    That would be true but unfortunately Camp America have stopped accepting applications for summer 2013.
