What are you doing this summer?

  1. May 4, 2006 #1
    I will be taking two classes at the University of Arizona, and then I'll go visit some places in the east coast......

    What are YOU doing?

    This summer won't be quite as eventful as last. However, I'll be moving to central Florida, after two days in Hawaii.

    Hey, you do whatever you want with your life. I just like to visit places. You don't have to be jealous, after you take a vacation in Hawaii.

    Hawaii isn't that great. They have strong currents and high surf, not much fun, plus lots of jellyfish. And it rains a lot. The Florida Keys are way better.

    Oh wait, you're going to Florida too. :rolleyes: No, no, I'm not jealous. I'm happy for you. Really.

    I am going to spend the summer relaxing and reading math books :smile:

    Also, at the end of this month, I will be going on the Price is Right :biggrin:

    Working at a leather store selling jackets and chaps, I'm still waiting on a callback from a lab job that I was hoping to get and I'm really hoping that works out. I don't know how I will be able to take all summer at this store.

    Work, work, work. Work, work, work. Work, work, work. (quiz question -- what movie is that from?)

    But mixed in will be a week camping with the kids up in Modoc National Forest, and a week of educational vacation in Washington DC.

    RELAXING!! Once I'm finished my GCSE exams, I'll be enjoying my few weeks before I begin A-Levels. Unless I'm assigned to do otherwise, that is. I'll also be doing my usual reading of geography and science books, but I enjoy that.

    This summer, I am taking a break from classes. And I plan on saving as much money as possible since I am looking at two years of poverty while I finish my degree at UCLA. I will have to cut back my hours to about 30 per week in the Fall.

    What are you majoring in? I'm sure you told us, but I've forgotten.

    I'm doing the Cognitive Science program. Actually, I have to do 4 more classes before they officially let me into the major, so for now I am designated as a Pre-cognitive Science major, which sounds like I am studying ESP! :biggrin:

    Summer classes, 4 of them :yuck:

    I plan to write code and issue invoices.

    Oh wait, did you say THIS summer??? In that case, write code and issue invoices.

    I am a little excited as I have expanded my business a bit, and so far it seems to be going very well. Hopefully this will be a profitable summer.

    Working so that I can (attempt) to afford to go to McGill for Mechancial Engineering in September! So between working, spending time with my gf, and partying, my summer is pretty much exhausted...I can't wait! 2 more weeks of IB exams and I'm free!

    Actually, after exams I'm going to Montreal to check out McGill's residences so I can decide which one I want to live in...and then I'm going to my friends cottage for a few days....so I do have a bit of a break before my summer as described above starts!
