Hey, I dont think you replied back to your thread you started about the ICS/VSO year abroad. Did you end up going? How was it? Telll me everything!! I really wanted to go this summer but I'd be abit crammed with time as I'm looking to go to university this year too, so looking to go next summer, even though its a while away.
Just came across a few of your tomorrowland threads. Did you end up going last year then?
Hello TSR friend, don't think I've talked to you yet so how are you on this fine evening? (at least where I am)
OK GUYS lets have less of the creepy comments and start treating her like a lady?!
do you have any old shoes i can buy from you?
Are you looking to raise some money?
the word of the day is legs. lets go back to my place and spread the word
hii yeahh future leeds-goer. hoping to study Communications/journalism. how about you?? you on the acess course thing too then?
There are a lot of people who enjoy outdoor sports, and also a lot of people who don't, but they're young so their bodies will basically put up with all the pot noodles they throw at it. If you're like me, however, and do not have such a considerate body (mine refuses to produce insulin and puts on 5lbs when I so much as look at a fairy cake), then perhaps the fitness would be a good plan if you want.
My Gap Year was entirely unintentional: I firmed Exeter and missed the grades, didn't want to go to my insurance choice, so was forced to gap and reapply.
I freaked out and just started applying for jobs left right and center, and ended up working in a little Somerfield. Everyone there was bitchy as **** so I quit after 3 months (I came home crying more than once - really unpleasant) and went on the dole. I volunteered in a litrle charity shop while I was waiting for something to come up, and went on a trip to an RAF base that the Job Centre arranged which was kinda fun. Eventually I got a minimum wage job in a little sweet shop. While I was there I went to Northampton to see a friend at uni there, who was a complete bitch to me and who I haven't spoken to since. When I got back I was made redundant from the sweet shop after just a month, and went on the application rampage once more. A few weeks later I got picked up by the Eden Project (I had worked there the summer previously) and worked there in catering until mid-September. Overall it wasn't a great year, but it did put me in touch with reality.
NHC is good, but I'm huge on cooking so the kitchen would definitely drive me insane. My friends there socialise a lot within their halls so I would recommend it from that point of view, and it's also quite cheap. As for Lupton and sociability, it depends on your block - some blocks are very sociable whereas mine isn't full of partiers (which I'm totally fine with).
Medieval isn't torturous at all - it's so incredibly interesting. We're glossing over Chaucer at the minute and I'm working up to writing an essay on some of the texts in the Canterbury Tales. I have really enjoyed my time at Leeds, and so has everyone else I know who has attended lectures and seminars. You get out what you put in, and it's only the people who skip lectures and seminars and then wonder why they're failing who complain.
- About me
- Currently in college, overwhelmed with a serious case of wanderlust while I dream about my gap year ahead - hopefully working for a bit then Australia, but at the present it's kind of a far away dream! If you know anything about Working Holiday Visas or Oz itself, care to send me a quick message? Would be seriously appreciated
University wise, I'm thinking Leeds (Offer for English and Drama 2013!) but I've got offers from Glasgow and Sheffield too. Everything's a bit up in the air at the minute, but isn't that how everyone's feeling?
Any Leeds students about? Would love to have an inside view of the nitty gritty stuff the open days don't tell you - is the student life really that mental for instance? Are there that many Southerners that come up to taste the Northern lifestyle? (I am the most Un 'Rah' like person you'll ever meet aha, and other than the course my love for...ahem, the Northen accent and laid-backness probably explains why all 5 of my uni choices were atleast 300 miles up, up and away from London!)
