    hellooo

    well - hmm - let's see - I graduated last year :D then started my own web design business with a friend and that's going quite well. Will leave that though to start medicine in september :D can't wait!! My first degree was computer science btw - people think I'm mad! Oh and half way through that I launched eunibooks.co.uk - which is a place for students to buy and sell books, so I'm hoping to manage that while I'm studying medicine. Just to keep me even more busy!

    and that's me!

    As for a lot on - yes - it's far more work than A-levels or a degree.

    But would you believe that I have no plans for the future anymore! I used to be really determined and did a whole life plan etc. .......do a computer science degree .... get a computing/finance job .... get a house .... etc etc

    But then when researching career options etc in my 2nd year - I just realised that I don't think I would enjoy the life of an investment banker, or working in an office. And it would take so long to work my way up and achieve anything. I just don't have that kind of patience for something that's so meaningless - i.e. working for a company and making money for them and the people up the top!

    I decided to apply for medicine just to leave my options open. I feel this is for me. But then I felt computer science was for me and it wasn't.

    The thought of 5 years as a student, and then more studying, exams etc does scare me slightly - which is why when I finished my degree I knew I had to set up my own business or something which I could do along side it. Had loads of ideas, but most would take a lot of commitment and I probably wouldn't have time for it. eunibooks was the perfect choice for me, web based, I could manage it in my spare time, and it was uni/student related.

    Everyone who's seen the site and heard about the idea has loved it which I'm really pleased about. Hoping to put a lot of time into it advertising and marketing so that soon it can just run by itself.

    Now I just have to decide how I'm going to take a few weeks off to go travelling before uni starts and with what money :D

    Never think too far into the future. It's a waste of time. And plans never work out as they should. Anyway... welcome to the website, Natalie. We look forward to "hearing" from you.
