    I suppose going pescatarian/vegetarian for 30 weeks a year is only a good thing for my health tbh. I'll maybe lose some weight too finally

    I'll miss donner and chips tho
    My vegetarian nephew in law is quite fat as he eats too much cheese as a source of protein.......

    If you miss kebab, chips and that's sort of stuff, there's always Gardies.

    Micro perhaps.

    I've just stickied it for them. Maybe they'll get up to double figures in time for Matriculation.

    I thought I was going to lose weight but tbh I've probably stayed around the same mark but still felt, in general, healthier for it anyway.
    I started off doing a trial vegetarian period for a week because i thought I'd miss chicken too much and didn't particularly want to stay veggie but then the trial extended into a month and then into a year and... that's where I'm up to so far! :P

    It's pretty good that you kept up! tried once but my dad made tandoori chicken on the third day in and I couldn't resist :/

    I hope there's someone who's not afraid of spiders in my corridor. I just saw a huge one in my bathroom and now I refuse to pee

    Sorry if I'm being stupid here, but what is a CAS? I haven't received any e-mail after yesterday... seems all of the material is coming only through mail and not by e-mail at all!
    You need your CAS statement to apply for a visa (if you need one) as an international student. The statement contains more than just the number; it has several bits of information that are important for the visa application.

    My son had an unconditional offer, so he got his a while ago; I would assume they are working hard to get everyone's ready and sent to them ASAP.

    If you are curious -- It came via email from: [email protected] ac.uk with the subject line: "Cambridge University Student Visa Application Your CAS statement (CAS assigned)".

    It doesn't look like much, but it has all the info you need it in.

    You'll be eating a lot of fries from the 'Van of life', you'll understand exactly what I mean when you see it.
    I'm pretty sure I saw it after my interview haha. Went to McDonald's instead though :P

    Whoa your interview must've been pretty late?

    He normally comes and sets things up late afternoon and opens at night.

    But if you saw a blue van at the end of Rose Cres (the street McDonald's is on) opposite Starbucks on Market square, then yeah you saw it

    You excited to start in October? Enjoy first year, honestly, I'd do first year all over again in a heartbeat.

    I just put glasses over them and let my dad deal with them... I guess that's something important I'll learn at uni!

    Yep that was it then haha! And my interview was literally the second or third last interview at Trinity, around 7pm I think.

    And definitely, I'll be going up in 2 and a bit weeks for rowing
