- Sixth Form Ball [I think this is classed as "get drunk"?]
- Visit Spain. Speak Spanish.
- Visit a certain girl.
- Learn to cook some things
- Try and find a decent audiobook on Portuguese
- Learn some random new things
- Keep remembering Spanish
- Work my way through all those books I bought but never found time to read
- Get my results [I think this is classed as "Reason to get drunk"?]
- Earn some money
- Buy some stuff for uni
- Quit my jobs
- Get a new job for uni

Doesn't seem like enough to do, really. I guess there'll be some random trips to beaches, faraway cities, and the houses of chicas bonitas. One can but hope.

- Read various fiction novels I have been meaning to get around to.
- Read the William Hague biography of William Wilberforce.
- Finally see Jack Johnson live.
- College related stuff (form meal, prom, etc).
- Go on holiday to Cyprus.
- Go camping with friends.
- Do my motorbike initial training thing and get myself a bike.
- Get back up to speed so to speak on my clarinet.
- Finish writing various pieces I have started.
- Watch Wimbledon.
- Catch up on all the sleep I've been missing this year.
- Sort out a job for September.
- Organise all my stuff (throw, keep, take to uni).

Last year I spent the first three weeks of the holidays doing volunteer work. I could call them up and go again - might be very tempting by mid August having been off so long.

- Enjoy holiday in Tunisia and travelling through Alpine region
- Get my Italian as fluent as possible
- Get a teaching job sorted for September in Italy
- Read some Italian, French and English books
- Get a good knowledge of English grammar

That's it =] it's in September/October that the hard work begins! Open Uni starts, my job and living in Italy for a year, and keeping French and Spanish going for starting those courses on my languages degree (doing the English section in the first year). During the summer, I can't really work too much on those languages while i'm trying to immerse in Italian, neither can I do any musical stuff while I'm travelling as I won't have a piano obviously. So that stuff will resume in September ^^;
Stone! (: You're moving to Italy in September?! Lucky, lucky, lucky person! Where abouts?

Umm, what do I wanna do?

+ survive Bulgaria for a week with the family
+ have an awesome time in the Lakes!
+ have lots and lots of fun in Wales with my friends before we all go our separate ways
+ read, read, and read all those books that I've had to put on hold because of exams
+ go to the gym lots and get fit
+ brush up on my Italian so that I don't feel so out of my depth come September
+ get into Warwick!

Hopefully, most of those things should happen - with the possible exception of the gym thing.
