Abseiling Instructor
IT Support

hooked up with several TSRians, bought a house, learnt to ride a motorbike, jumped out of an airplane and many other exploits

Best - Abseiling Instructor. Got to spend all day at the top of the tower throwing kids off. Was great fun, working with an awesome group of staff. We all lived on-site as well so it was like being back in uni halls. Plus all our food was cooked for us

Worst - JFruit picking. I was mostly picking Aubergines which are the most horrible smelling things ever. They grow at almost ground level so lots of bending over all day, plus have thorns and this impossible to remove sticky sap. All this in the 45degrees heat of Australia.

There was this crazy girl a few years ago who used to mega troll H+R. I cant remember her name, but she once created a topic along the lines of "cooking with ***" and linked to various resources. Yeah.

Oh I used to be way up in the yellow heaven of rep. However I left TSR for a bit and in that time they swapped to the new rep system along with introducing the rep decay which ate away alot of mine.

I mostly stick to the advice/money and careers forums now where I can offer advice/knowledge to others on things. If this forum were only students, it wouldnt be much help for people seeking information on careers, pensions, etc.

For me, around 2006/7. There was a really good community here, not too big so you regularly saw the same people each evening. My uni used to have regular TSR meetups.

Oh yeah, retirement at 30 planned

I pay 4% matched and another 6% AVC taken as salary sacrifice. I also have a small stocks and shares ISA invested in a fund of funds, mostly index trackers.
