    Help with my Gap Year?

    Hey,

    Well ever since i was 6 i had a plan with what i was going to do with my life. Now im the Big 16 i decided, after i finish my GCSE's i would go to tec for 2 years to study Music Technology. After that i want to take 1-2 Years off and go work for a volentory service company before i go to uni. I am thinking about the red cross. What other Company's like the Redcross are there? I was told about the peace core and VSO(Volenteer Services Oversea's), are there anyothers?
    Thanks :)

    BK,

    Ha, yeah, i want to help people. Not blow them up :grin:

    :shocked: Im only taking this to go into ADR (Advance digital Recording) and speaking about "will" and "Robbie", there I.Q's are the same as my age so we cant really complare them to music tech students, can we?

    The Peace Corps is only for US citizens. I think there are some similar programs based in the UK, though.

    How can you comment on someones IQ when you don't know who I'm talking about, specially when you generally need good maths and physics knowledge to get into most decent music tech courses.
    I was just talking about the fact that my two friend's who are doing music tech degrees are quite weird.

    Why wouldn't you just get a job and save up some money?

    General Certificate of Standard Education. "What does GCSE stand for in your country" would be the correct sentence :)

    I suspect there's things they'd rather be called than a company :grin: I agree with your sentiments - imo young people are far too quick to rush to go to University in the Uk these days. There is a glut of graduates (including myself) all going for the same jobs and there's very little to distinguish them. Something like this would make a man of you (excuse the cheese please BK) and also look great on the old CV.

    Have you looked into the fairly large amount of charitable groups that provide volunteer opportunities? I'm thinking Oxfam and Christian Aid etc. These are often groups with some (loose) religious affiliations, so you might be offended if you're a practising Pagan..

    Re: Help with my Gap Year?

    My apologies, i thought you ment Robie williams and will young:grin:

    To be fair, you didnt say this like they were your friends, as why i said what i said :grin: I ment no offence.

    I want to stay away from religious company's if possible. I attend a chatholic school atm and i have nothing against religions(Well i do but its not suitable for this thread) but i wish to stick with all religious/non-religious companies if possible. Yes, my older brother asked me why i wanted to do this. I want to do this to help people, i know it will look lush on my CV(Along with my D of E awards and my radio ham lisences') but the main reason is to help people.
    This is prob because, all the things is seen with people dying in 3rd world countries wants me to help and to force the heads of power to do somthing more. I know what i just said will attract attention from people, prob saying somthing like -"If those people came out of poverty the prices on everything will rise and there will not be enough people to feed/water and the population of the earth will rise"- but they are probs that will come but for now lets work together to fix it :grin: (Cheese returned)

    You dont want to know the story behind that, also not suitable for this thread.

    Hah, you could do worse than them though, alteast they're earning millions.
    Oh, and don't worry, no offense taken at all, just music tech students are odd :wink3:
    Robbie being the guy that made those Metal Chef videos by the way.
