    My list includes:


    • Loaning out course related books from the library and starting to dissect them one by one;
    • Watching course related videos on YouTube;
    • Sending out CVs everywhere to get some part-time work in the interim even though I have a job right now – although it doesn’t pay much;
    • Trying desperately to quell my insecurities that I am not smart enough for this master’s course;
    • Getting a new passport because my old one expired three years ago.


    What does yours include?

    Ahh leave the work till Uni! These are the precious two months that aren't going to come back any time soon - two months filled with nooo immediate worries! The rest of life will be Uni work, revision (repeat x3)...graduating...getting a job...working.

    I'm currently working (on my gap year so been working for 11 months now) but the job involves travelling and a fair amount of time for me to do what I want Also doing some travelling, filing for a second patent and making an app

    Earning money and going through topics from my previous course in brief so I've not forgotten anything when I start uni in September!

    And obviously, socialising.

    Already been up to lots, but I have a wedding to go to on Friday, then in Bordeaux from 29/7 - 11/8, results day and likely going out with friends, then friend from Bordeaux staying with me 19-31 August. Also, between that, working and starting to read my course books (French and Spanish) which I have pretty much all of already. Good to get them second hand now because I've had troubled finding them online, and if I don't end up getting in I can always sell them on later next month!

    I feel as if I have had a really good balance between work and summertime this year.

    Trying to get ahead with Algebra 2A as it stressed me out ridiculously last time and it'd be nice to have a head start.

    Also, trying to make SFE realise that I haven't been overpaid £1500 so that I can actually eat next year.
