I'm not really sure where to start with this. Summer is one of those things that everyone looks forward to and is definitely full of opportunities for what ever you're doing in university. My usual routine for summer unfortunately consists of, well...netflix and food. One difference is that now we all have a little cash aside from the student loans that we'll probably save for a rainy day or in my case a sunny one (unless you've spend it all in which case I feel deeply sorry for you, rice and beans for another month). My parents are always going on about money and how I should guard it with my life which I totally understand. The responsible thing to do would be to save it up for when times are hard. (Their perspective). My opinion is that we should enjoy it whilst we can! I mean when do we ever get the chance to have large sums of money. At the end of it all, its our debt to pay back (if that ever happens). So I have choices to make here, I go on holiday for 10 days somewhere, get a car for a month and do the whole travelling around the UK thing, or stay boring and save my money and let the netflix cycle resume as usual. As a side note, I love to make my own music, recently invested into some gear and want to learn more, come to think of it, making more music is definitely on the list of things to do during the 3 1/2 months off. Anyone know any freebie music events going on around the Wales area also?

As a compromise, you could go on a cheap package holiday abroad (there's easily ones between £200 and £300, for example a week in spain cost me £180 all inclusive last year as the flights were awkward) rather than a trip around the uk or somewhere expensive abroad and save the rest of the money.

Which part of wales are you in ?

no harm with a holiday if you have some money left over. But also do go and get some work experience, it will help you so much when you graduate.
