    The thought of driving makes me feel really responsible for the safety of the world...hence why it makes my stomach churn.

    ...a couple of books...?

    Oxford Chemistry, glad I've found this thread! More of a one to go for a nice quiet evening stroll or a night in watching TV and on the laptop (drinking tea of course). Enjoy 1-1 company but groups are a no-no :P

    yeah, they went really well, so I'll be on target for AAB (which is what I need to get into Reading :P )

    Yeah my last exam was the Wednesday that just went by and I feel bored already :sad:

    I'll be looking for some cars tomorrow, because I'll be getting a first car soon!

    Anything planned for the weekend?
    I've applied for Reading as well! Not sure what reputation it has for partying but I don't plan on getting drunk. Not my kind of thing

    I think it depends on which halls tbh.

    Stenton, Mackinder, Childs, tend to have a fair chunk of people who like alcohol.

    Don't get me wrong, I like alcohol too, but I will just have one of two ciders and that's it. Getting drunk to the point where you're on the floor is just not worth it.

    It would be cool though if the non-drinkers could have like a meet up during freshers. Just a suggestion

    Yeah I haven't really drunk much alcohol before but I'm not completely adverse to a few drinks but I agree, getting smashed seems pointless.

    A meet up sounds like a great idea

    I'm not sure how I feel about fresher's week right now I drink if there's something I like (Archers and lemonade is a personal favourite) but I'm not interested in getting utterly smashed. I just don't like it. Hopefully people won't think I'm too weird - especially since the college I'm going for (Lancaster uni has a college system) has a bit of a reputation as a 'party college' - 15 hour bar crawl, etc.
    Hello I'm the same, and I'm going to Lancaster too! So we can be the weirdos together haha (but I'm glad someone else feels the same as it makes me worried too)

    Haha, really? English to computer science is a bit of a jump! Though, saying that, I did want to be a vet until I was about 14, sooo...

    Poetry? And why did A-Level English bore you (though I think I can guess the answer)?

    Probably because I wanted to do creative writing but it was more about gender theories and stuff (but tbh I did find that interesting) just wasn't what I expected
