    Hi all...

    I don't know about you, but I never know what to do with all the spare time over summer when I'm not working etc. Like most students I'm on a strict budget now and rather skint because of costs of uni etc.!

    But just wondering what you guys do to occupy yourselfs when you got a day off etc.

    Its like today a couple of us are free but don't know what to do. Have limited access to the car and funds.

    Camping if you got a weekend.
    Could go play golf.
    Playstation and all that stuff
    Footy

    What kind of things you all do that makes the day fun?

    I don't want to spend my time back home being bored ! :P

    Go and have a picnic somewhere! It's quite cheap to buy stuff from the supermarket and prepare it, or you could just take stuff you already have at home haha.

    well, some stuff i do.
    1)hit some bars where some of my friends work at, whereby im given free drinks
    2)lan parties
    3)gather up parties, like today im going to this barbeque thing, should be fun
    4)beaches in the morning if we want to swim or beach party at night if we want something like that(i live in cyprus)
    5)pre-drinks at a house, then go clubbing
    6)paintball
    7)sometimes we play strategy games online, its fun;p coke with ice next to me = paradise
    8)house parties are organised all the time here

    generally theres always something to do, especially at night, its easier to get around by car because of the weather. (its 40 degrees in the morning-thats bad!) so its all good here.

    lucky you mr cyprus!!

    from a more english response....


    Go each buy some cheap drink and have a massive beach get together and make it so anyone can come and bring whoever they want. that way you meet new people and it encourages more things like this to happen... no beach then a field no field then.... smile!


    If one of your friends is allowed people over then go round and do some painting or something lol we painted a friends fence last year and it took a whole day and it was good fun


    go to the gym?


    i agree with your boredem though, im booking holidays like crazy to try and solve it at the moment

    2 jobs? that might help


    let me know what good response you get though!!

    Hi all, cheers for this haha, 6 weeks was enough. 4 months is loads, especially as we can't really afford a holiday to break it up!

    We went and randomly did some pitch and putt and went the arcades today. Think were going to do some golf and tennis and that. Few drinks on a couple of nights and I'm having some mates round nxt week due to a free house.

    Going to use some of these suggestions.

    See things like zoo and paintballing and stuff seem like a good laugh and good day out but probably be way expensive.

    I'm just glad one mate has access to a car because without that god knows what i'd be doin

    My friends and I are just having each other round at random times in the summer, sitting in the garden, mini-picnics/trips to the nearest food place, watching DVDs/dancing around, I've been invited to a mini-'rave' in someone's basement...
    ...being on a tight budget as well we're also trying to organise some sort of 'holiday', probably Cornwall, as well.

    So, how exactly would I get it going - can I apply online or do I phone them up and how soon might I be able to start??? (Thanks by the way for the reply.)

    Its different for all of them.. some are more official than others. For Oxfam you have a to fill in an application form which you can pick up from the stores, but for a less major organisation they'll probably say just turn up. Just contact them by person/phone/email and ask how to get involved.. They will always be pleased to have you!
