Hey. We can make this a support base as well. If anyone is having any difficulty fitting into student life then we can help each other out.
I would join but sadly they rejected me. Im here in spirit!! xxx
How do I join?!
I want to be official and have a logo!
Renza, you hit the spot exactly! also, if any of us happen to be doing the same subjects then we can help one another that way.
also, we can natter about revision, what we have bought for moving in, there's heaps! basically all the stuff we want to say to our mates but we can't because it would bore them!
you click on "socs" at the top of the page, its the button next to wiki and members. scroll down the page and then you will see Edinburgh Students Society. click on the "join this society" button and that is you! i will process your application, or one of the other leaders. and then you are a member!
those of you who are leaders, your name appears beside the society and you have the "manage society" functions available. basically you can process applications and i dont think that there is much else.
how is revision going for everyone?
Guh I should start revising...
But I have become so lazy... and I am working too hard. Guh.
Yay! Thankyou, i've applied to become a fully-fledged member!
Started revision last week, but however much I do there always seems to be more stuff to learn... Damn Psychology!
Has everyone applied for their accomodation yet? What are your three choices?
I've put down...
1. Darroch Court
2. College Wynd
3. Kincaid's Court
Don't have a clue what any of them are like cos I couldn't find any pictures or anything of them, so I just looked at the map and chose the ones nearest to the train station and George Square!
Yep if you don't get into Pollock then they have to make you an offer of somewhere but if you don't like that offer then they seem to be pretty funny about offering you somewhere else, so just accept where ever they stick you cos at least you'll have somewhere to live!
What a fab idea about acting out Othello! I'm studying that aswell so might just try and arrange that with some of my mates ( as long as I can be Iago!)
so if i dont like my house i can move in with you, right? hehe... do they allow trading of rooms if you like someone else more than yours? like, you just do a straight swap.
"Honest Iago" indeed... I love him so much, Othello is such a boring and stupid character. Like, normal people would check that the horrors they are being told are true before they kill their wife. Nobody takes the word of just one person, and surely Desdemona would have asked around for her handkerchief when she lost it? then Cassio would have been like oh I know where it is, I found it on the bed! ... Shakespeare has no logic sometimes.
Yeah if everyone else in the flat is ok with someone else moving in then it's allowed!
I love Shakespeare but the flaws in Othello make me so mad! If Emilia was such a good friend to Desdemona why did she give Iago the handkerchief and why didn't she tell Desdemona what she had done? Grrr! It gets me angry!
Yeah, unconditionals are all dependent on how well you do in 5th year. So, really, 6th year is a waste of time for me atleast...
I applied to:
no, really, it is okay! i don't envy you one bit! i am glad i am passed the stage of trying to meet conditions... god bless the scottish education system!
good luck though, i will think of you!
