On Holiday with my friends

How to make the most of the summer!

As you get into university there are only a few more long summer time holidays, unless you become a teacher, so you want to make these moments count. I thought I would give you some great ways to truely make these summers count!

  1. Frankie says relax!

After the stress of a million assignments, talk of dissertations, and everything else that comes along with university life. The sumer is a much needed time to just take a break, it’s the first thing I do in the summer!

  1. Catch up.

What happened to all those friends you had at college that went of to universities around the country? And the family members you haven’t seen in months? Well the summer is the best time to get everyone together and remember the good ol’ days. As well as making new memories.  I am sure you have seen them since you have been at uni but probably not all together for a long time.

  1. Volunteer

Ok, I sound like a mega geek but using your summer holiday to volunteer or get a short internship in your chosen field can not only help your uni work, but might help you realize your hate the job you thought you would love! Best to find out now.

  1. Go away!

If you haven’t blown all of your student finance, or you got a bit of money for your work in the summer why not go away with a group of your friends. Weather it’s a festival or a trip abroad, it will be a great time to let you hair down and have fun with your mates.

  1. Do what you want!

The best bit about the summer is that without any university work you wont have to feel guilty for not doing any of it. So if you want to go away on holiday or stay up til 4 in the morning playing on FIFA every night. Just do whatever the hell you want. After all don’t forget you don’t have many of these super long holidays left.

I hope you have a great holiday.

The Big V

Well, It’s that time of year again. The time when singletons are made to feel pathetic and Couples are forced to buy gifts, Yes Valentines day!

I have to admit I have a love/ hate relationship with Valentines day. I have fond memories of being at school and people passing around cards, and I love an excuse to go out and do something special with my boyfriend. But I also feel like doing something special on one day because your told your meant to is no where near as special as just randomly celebrating you love with each other. And do you want to know my biggest hate of all?

Every restaurant known to man, will have the tiniest menu at prices triple the normal value, and there restaurant will be packed, making your romantic night feel slightly less romantic as you can hear the people next to you talking. So I have tried to come up with some ideas of how to celebrate without needing a new student loan!

  1. Why Thursday?

Unless you have a real attachment to February 14th there is no need to actually stick to that day. Like I said earlier the prices of food and drink are raised on Valentines day, so why not go out on the Wednesday, or even the week after. You will still have a great night out but the likelihood is you will have a larger menu to choose from and it will be cheaper.

  1. Cook.

I know cooking can seem super boring but if you and your lover (that word makes me cringe!) work together to create a meal, it can be great fun as well as really tasty. You will also be saving loads of money, although you will have to face the washing up!

  1. Takeaway

If your a good student who doens’t eat takeaways very often (or not.) this can be a nice treat. Last year my boyfriend and I had a lovely night watching a film and eating from our favorite takeaway.

  1. Meals for 2

I swear every supermarket does those dine for 2 people deals nowadays. You normally get a main course, side dish, pudding and a bottle of wine. They tend to be £5-£10, you normally can just whack them in the oven, or microwave and they do all the work on their own. I admit I have had a few of the tesco’s ones and they are devine!

  1. Cinema

My final idea is pretty simple don’t go out for a meal, why not just go to the cinema or another date night favorite. It will be loads cheaper.

  1. One extra!

My boyfriend and I have decided no presents, it is likely to save us both a fair amount and we don’t have loads to through around at the moment.

I hope you enjoy Valentines day weather your single or coupled up!
