    i know, so im slightly worried. my main concern (and im sure by voicing it here i'll be branded as racist and all sorts) is that because i put on my form that i am able to speak chinese they'll pair me up with some freaky chinese dude who's hooked on online gaming, listens to crappy government manufactured pop, has dubious personal hygene and dosent socialise with any non-chinese person. and the worst bit will be because we share a room he'll think of me as his best buddy and expect me to sit with him for lunch and stuff.

    yeah that would be my worst case senario. and the really scary bit is its not even that improbable.
    hopefully that won't happen. Just got off the phone with the accom. people at IC - I was told that " at Imperial we of course are all for ethnic and cultural diversity and try to promote this through room allocation" ..sounded like the guy was reading off a brochure. so good luck to you

    woahh Unity! didn't expect you to take it so seriously. Guess it's hard to tell over the Net. maybe I was mean but really how did you expect me to reply. Shower you with (virtual) kisses and offer to take you out for some (digital) coffee? didn't mean for you to get all hurt man. For real.

    a side note: ages ago, before I'd skimmed through it, I found your thread hilarious because I thought you were asking after the health of female students like you were worried they'd all kick the bucket before the end of winter. Fit doesn't mean attractive where I come from- just healthy or robust. pretty stupid of me huh

    I hope none of that sounded bitter because I don't want it to come across that way, I read somewhere that you were deciding to defer are you still going to?
    Yeah, no hard feelings okay? Since you asked, the decision to defer or not is out of my hands. I'm waiting for some important medical results right now. :/

    LOL, Thats one downfall of the internet you just can't tell in what way someone means something. I did actually expect showering with (unvirtual) kisses, just joking. I wasn't in anyway hurt by anything you said so don't worry about that, I was just a lil suprised how you reacted.

    You're an international student though so its not your fault.

    I'm glad you sorted it out kiddos.
    ( please don't look at my age in my profile)

    internet is bad bad bad, people never understand each other, this reminds me of the caretaker's posts from a while ago in this thread, he was so misunderstood.

    Might be great over there, but England really has **** all to do. You pretty much go out for a day, and you're blown out for a week.

    hehe well the cool jeans comment we wrote because I was at paula's place (girl on the right) and trying on all her jeans while she was uploading the pictures.

    and good guess! not in china but taiwan. hehe, actually they're originally from japan. the japanese are crazy about them. but now they're all over asia.

    Right, I just thought I would buckle to the pressure of everyone wanting to see another photo of myself.

    Oh. Fine. Well, now that I've started I may as well finish...
