    Wasn't too bad, nothing like a real pipe though
    What's a real pipe like?

    Using the pen made me feel mildly sick for a short while after it.
    The feeling of breathing in the vapour is unpleasant imo, don't know how people find it enjoyable.

    Oh do I have quite long lessons then. My doubles are 120 minutes and its dependant upon the teacher if you get a break or not

    I think that's standard - 60 minute lessons with 120 minute doubles is what most of my friends at other schools have. My school just has short lessons for some reason!

    Oh, strange. I remember in my secondary school they did 50 minute lessons though - the timetable got so confusing for everyone.

    I do know of a friend whose college give her 3/4 hour lessons sometimes on regular course (i.e. not "creative" ones), madness.

    Does it not get confusing if you have 2/3 back to back. I'm fairly used to just waiting until the next hour

    that's strange, the real pipe WILL make you sick if you don't know how to use it. But the pen making you sick is quite weird. A real pipe is just a lot more vapour with less effort

    Got offered a job at the O2 store, I'm so pumped right now! I honestly didn't expect a call back, but no, I got a call today about the specifics to the role. If anybody is looking for a part-time job, feel free to ask me questions on interviews, CVs, etc.

    Congratulations!

    Although no-one in my area will beat the local three store for customer service.

    Yeah, duh! I turned 16 on the 2nd of July, I've always looked older - had stubble at 12 ! Oh really, have you thought about applying anywhere (especially O2 )? I'm going to be working 12 hours a week, so not too much interference with school.

    Well now that I'll be working at O2, you better believe their customer service will increase significantly in quality
