    LOL..

    No to be honest..

    I guess I'm just saving my EMA and stuff but I'm really relying on my parents and grants..

    My parents don't mind helping me out so it's not a problem.

    No, because I work at Mc Donalds and the uni money would disappear as soon as I enter uni for fees etc... seems such a waste.. pay off later.

    It also emerged today that fast food chain McDonald's has been flooded with job applications in recent months with the stigma of 'McJob' evapourating in the recession. It revealed that it was receiving 2,200 job applications a day. In the last month alone, it has received 305 trainee manager enquiries from people with a wide variety of backgrounds in finance and banking, education, hospitality and retail. The company is currently hiring 140 people a day.


    2,200 applications for 140 jobs each day. You do the maths.

    We don't all live near Reading

    Just did a search for jobs in Leeds on their careers site. Of the 10 stores in the search results, no vacancies at any of them.

    And for Liverpool, for when I go to uni, similar results. Just 3 vacancies across 10 stores, of which one I'm not eligible for as you need to be on Jobseekers Allowance.

    I've got £5k inheritance so I think I'm just going to use that. I'd like to think my Dad would have wanted me to use it to go through university.
