      Plus reading and lectures Less time than you think.

      (Well, with reading, you could do what we sometimes did and only do the reading for the essay. This is fine until you have 2 topics in a supervision, no one reads the 2nd topic and the supervisor dedicates the whole supervision to that topic...)

      Darn Cambridge, starting later than everyone else!

      I can't say that I'm looking forward to the manic pre-exam periods (because I get really stressed and seriously ill then ) but I want to start too...

      I think what makes it worse is that all my friends have started already or are leaving in the next week

          Here...


          Only joking. :p:

          If you're erm...passionate about tea, there's actually a TeaSoc which is for all members of the University. They have different kinds of teas (I tried Christmas Tea when I went once last year) and for £1 per meeting or about a tenner a year, it's all you can drink. It's generally held at 4pm (teatime, duh :rolleyes:) in Pembroke. It's definitely on Sundays and I think Thursdays too...

            Nah. From what I recall, they're fairly expensive - and the best fancy dress is home made!

            Besides, I don't think it'd work with any of the themes. To give you a flavour, past Pembroke bop themes have been "Heroes and Villains", "Nightmare Before Christmas", "Roald Dahl" and "P is For...". As you can see, you're better off getting some cheap stuff from the Primark near the Grafton and combining it. :yes:

            EDIT: Might be worth getting a (cheap) tray of face paints though. There's nowhere really that sells that kind of stuff in Cambridge, with the exception of the party shop...where I paid about £4 for a pot of Snazaroo. :sad:

            You make a very good point.

            Perhaps I will just buy a tuxedo one and wear it to matriculation .

            Pretty much free tea, you say? :holmes:

            I like the sound of that.
