i feel quite unprepared
its difficult cos i know what i want to do, its just i dont know how to do it

1. earn hopefully up to 6,000 so ive got that to take to uni with me in 09
2. work full time (library, something media related)
3. write to lots of magz/papers for some work experience
4. get accppted into some bbc work experience
5. learn to drive
6. go to france
7. a weekened in brighton (lol)
8. apply for TVYP next year
9. start a solo music project

but most importantly

10. decide if the course ive applied for is the right course or repply again this year. if I get a B + in literature im considering changing my degree, as journalism, media and sociology at cardiff looks perfect.


i really want to go into a music related media field..possibly music journalism.

aside from writing to music magz, what other work experience should i try out for??


gah, media stuff in a gap year really isnt the right thing
you see youve applied for 09 entry, if you dont get your grades this august do you lose your place or do you have until the year after?

- Learn Italian to the point of being able to read Dante's inferno
I want to as well, but the chance of me learning it to that extent is virtually non-existent as I only know the very basics at the moment. How well do you know it?

I need an Italian language buddy...how about it? :p:

I'll be honest, I know absloutly nothing. Hoping that four months in Florence will improve that somewhat. How are you planning on learning it?

1. Get very fit
2. Get a job and earn money

If those are achieved then can go travelling.

Various ways - I have some teach yourself style Italian books and CD's at home. Also considering enrolling on an evening course. There's the internet of course :p: Um...Italian people I know, ha! It all helps :p:

When are you going to Florence? And for what purpose - eg. working, language course, or whatever else?

1. become a lot better at fdrench (quite likely as going there for 3 months in sept)
2. ensure my gap year is totally self sufficient - so earn BEFORE i spend/travel.
3. Decide what i wan tto do at uni and with my life.
4. get some good/fun/relevant work experience.
5. experience a totally different country outside of western europe.
6. travel
7. meet some great new people
8. gain (self-)confidence.

i'm not ambitious at all..oh also get aplace at uni
