English Literature related Gap Year watch

    • Thread Starter

    18 year old girl living in London. 18 months of freedom. The world is my oyster, right?

    Well, this is terrifying. I'm two terms away from being released from the throttles of school and seem to be looming on a year of drifting without direction. I have two vital aims for my gap year:

    1. Meet or be with likeminded people.
    2. Have a structured and busy time.

    So, I need ideas for a fruitful way to fill the 18 months between A Levels and some form of English Literature degree. Has anyone had experience with this kind of situation? I'm kind of open to anything: perhaps an English course for a bit, working in a bookshop would be amazing, teaching English abroad, doing a piano diploma? As long as I'm busy and with people I get on with, it should be fine, but getting to that stage is proving to be less easy than I thought. !!
Do you think parents should charge rent?
