    I think she's going with two of her friends, who she's currently with in devon, their plan was to sunbathe on a beach but they picked a crap few days for that, so instead they're going to watch TV all day for the few days that they're there. I don't really think there was much point in risking their lives in a car with her friend who's only just passed her test for that, but nevermind.

    I've not decided to, but I will be if I miss my uni offer (which is looking quite likely). If that happens, I'll be working part-time until January to save up some cash alongside resitting a few exams, and then once they're done jetting off to Australia with two friends to work/travel out there, possibly followed by some more travelling

    When my turn comes i'll get a job and save all the money i earn. That's a classic example of the difference in personality between my sister and i, basically she isn't boring. I'm pleased she's going to Australia for a year though, couldn't be a larger distance from me.

    Neither well nor badly, somewhere in between, she has her nice moments but usually she's a snobby cow that snaps at you for nothing just because her friend couldn't give her a lift to a party or something. I also resent that we used to both go to private schooloing, then my dad said that he couldn't afford us both to go and i offered to go to a new school, and leave all my friends behind, and she never said thank you for that or anything, but that's just stupid family issues that nobody wants to her.

    Well I'm applying to do Computer Science at Queens'. What I'll actually end up doing is questionable.

    If I don't make my firm choice, then I've decided to take a gap year. I'll reapply, look up about a few schemes I read about such as teaching English in Japan/etc, get a job and do a few more courses at college I quite fancy trying my luck at a science and doing an italian/french/spanish for beginners course!
