    Not a very serious thread but like the title says, as a med student do you feel more strapped for money or free time?

    I'm coming to the end of my gap year which I've spent working/volunteering abroad. Now I have to choose whether to spend August working at a care home to get a bit more money, or to chill and get stuff ready for uni.

    What do you reckon? Will my future self be kicking me for not earning more money, or not making the most of a completely free month?

    For me it's free time. I have enough cash to survive and in theory at the end of this be doing nothing but earning money and working. So I enjoy every moment of free time I get

    You can always make more money. You can't get time back.

    If you don't need the money (that is, you have enough to pay your rent and eat this year) I would recommend doing something else with your time.

    But if that extra money can buy you a nice holiday you'll be making the most out of the free time that you do have.

    They're both important. You need money for University to go out and do the hobbies you want to do, plus to buy textbooks and the like. But you need free time to chill out and to get the most out of the University experience.
