    I've just started watching Arrow and I'm finding it enjoyable.
    I love the uniqueness of how they show the plotline - or shall I say, plotlines. Although acting from the lead can be a bit bland at times, it is a fantastic show overall. The battle scenes rarely disappoint. Subordinate plots have sufficient emotional detail.

    Also... if you watch it for long enough... it eventually just becomes one huge Doctor Who reunion. (Spoilers!)

    Not a Doctor Who fan anyway. I'm currently on episode 6 and I love it.

    Anyone know what enrichment they're doing? Is young enterprise a good one, since it gives UCAS points:awesome:

    Further Maths takes up my enrichment. UCAS points aren't everything anyway.

    I'm going to do some form of music enrichment. The college I'm going to used to offer Music Technology as an A Level, but the teacher left so now they can't run it. Instead, one of the Media Studies guys organises events for bands and solo artists to play throughout the year, alongside other music related stuff, so I'm probably going to do that. Most of the enrichment at my college is sport related... I hate sport... Unless it's a good ol' game of rounders.

    Enrichment at my college is pretty cool. Lessons are 90 minutes long, and there are 4 lessons a day. So on a Wednesday afternoon, rather than having two lessons, everyone comes off timetable for around three and a half hours, and we do enrichment then. Well, you can just go home if you want to... But I'm doing enrichment.

    Haha that's really cool!:cool: Do you perform?
    Yh they offered dance, badminton etc.. at my college but unfortunately i have two left feet and stage fright!
    At some colleges enrichment is essential, at mine's it's optional - is yours essential/optional?
    What are your career plans, if you don't mind me asking?
    It's just that i've chose young enterprise and im thinking of a science based career, is it better if your enrichment is linked to your future job prospects?
    p.s sorry for bombarding you with questions

    Enrichment -activities/volunteering provided by your college, the aim is to either boost your CV and in some cases make you a better candidate for a job. Some enrichment's are appealing to Uni's so it's always good to do one

    It's cool don't worry, I'll answer them all.

    Not currently, but I have performed in a band numerous times (3...), and I used to do some acting thing when I was 10-12, but I dropped that because I lost interest and I probably wasn't that great anyway. I just love being on a stage though and prancing around whilst holding an instrument.. It's great.

    As far as I know it's optional at my college, but I'm doing it anyway so it doesn't matter to me.

    I don't have a career plan... I don't even want to go to college. If I could have things my way, I'd be working right now, saving up to travel the world. But it looks like I'm still going to be able to do that, I'll just be working in a part-time job. Honestly, the things I would do just to be able to tour in a band and travel the world... These guys are living the life right now. They're massive in their scene, but hardly known to the majority of people. That video just gets me stoked on life. That's what I want to do. In regards to education, I have no clue. I just took two subjects I enjoy (Maths and German) and two subjects that I'm interested in (Psychology and Sociology). I wouldn't mind doing a degree in Criminology... But apart from that, I really don't know.

    I don't know what that is, but I guess if your enrichment is somewhat related to your chosen career path then it will give you an upper-hand.

    Sorry for the essay, but you asked.

    Oh, right, I think we have something that's meant to be like that - it's just the term 'enrichment' caught me completely off guard.

    If I'm right, then in my equivalent of enrichment, I'll be trying to get some sort of award in Japanese. :cool:

    What's your budget for a record player? And would you want just a portable player with average built-in speakers, or a proper hi-fi system with decent external speakers?

    If you already have a nice pair of speakers, then you might only need a USB turntable, which you can get extremely cheap.

    I didn't even know what enrichment was until it was explained further down! I'll probably do something music related like an orchestra or swing band, maybe a choir/glee club if they have it :3

    Does anybody in this thread use Lastfm? It would be cool to see if any of us share a taste in music.

    http://www.last.fm/user/LewcusXD

    I made my account over two years ago.. Judge my username.. I don't care..
    You also get to see a really bad picture of me from December 2012 if you click that link. I look nothing like that now, I just haven't bothered to change my picture.

    The last time I downloaded 20GB worth of data it took 2 months.

    That's why

    Well when the blu ray set is over twice the price it's pretty pointless to buy that if I just want to watch it and sell it again.
