    Not eaten for three days
    Had a Mars Bar every day of one month.
    Made friends who HATE my music.
    Done an all nighter in the library.
    Done an MSN all nighter.
    Done an all nighter out at clubs.
    Been drawn on in eyeliner
    Wore eyeliner
    Dressed in fancy dress (first time since I was like 8) covering my arms in black face paint.
    Learned molecular orbital theory

    that people are obsessed with their marks, especially if you do a difficult course. and that you'll find that "friends" will be willing to out you in front of professors. sad times. erm, what else? that public transport really sucks and that living off campus sucks too but that on campus is pretty crappy too.

        Thank God the fees are going up if they are going to deter certain "students" from roaming free and engaging in hedonistic pursuits. I thought university was supposed to be a time where you pursue an academic education in your chosen subject.

        How wrong was I...

        Fair enough, I understand that student life is important; but for not one reason with regards to education in the OP's list makes me thing that the OP is going to university for the wrong reasons.

        Anyone that goes to university and hates the work that they do makes me think - why are you even there in the first place?

        :sigh:

        Weed

        Got a pet snake

        On vitD medication now, so I've stopped falling asleep all the time

        Eating virtually the same things day in day out

        Sleeping for 17 hours straight (this was before vitD medication)

        Having the untidiest room ever. So bad that I posted a picture of the neatest part of the room (my desk) to TSR on a post-your-desk thread, and it kept being negged.

        That's what the OP is!

        This thread should be called 'What new sexual things have you experienced at uni? :hump:'

        If you are doing well in your studies I shan't criticize your personal choices...

        If you aren't doing well... why are you wasting taxpayers funding by being a slutty drunk? Should you be at Uni if that's all you are achieving :rolleyes:

        Honestly surprised by the replies here. Why is everyone being so damn conservative? It's like she confessed to child molestation or whatever. How does it effect you whatsoever?
        It irritates me so much.
        It's this conservative attitude that is responsible for so much prejudice and stigma that impede individuals daily on achieving the most from life.
        How can woman alone be so conservative? You fight for years, decades, to not be repressed in terms of clothing, sex, make-up, and general freedom, and then you throw it all back in these people's faces who spent their entire lives looked down upon as sub-human by endorsing internal gender oppression!
        What do you gain from calling someone a ****? False feelings of supremacy? How does it make you superior to someone due to your inability to engage in reproductive acts? No doubt it'd indicate otherwise? I know here I'm being a hypocrite by insulting another group, and that no one(esp. females) is going to claim their abstinence(or at least, lack of sexual activity[which is chosen to be infrequent?]) is down to nothing other than choice, but people like you just irritate me.
        People say they want world peace, no war, no homophobia, sex-equality, etc. but pounce at any possible opportunity to insult another human being when said human being has done no harm!
        You are an example of a far more fundamental problem with society, than something as trivial as an individuals attitude to standardised education.
        Damn it. I'm so mad. Neg all you want, not one of you can refute this post. All you can do is perpetuate out-dated repressive attitudes and throw meaningless ad-hominem attacks.
        (Sorry for the poor structure of this post, just so mad).
        EMZ.
        EDIT: Wow. Thanks for all the positive rep. Nice to know people are on a similar wavelength.

        The other day i was thinking about all the new different things that i've experienced since i started uni in september...and some of them are things i would never have done if i had stayed at home / not moved away.

        Soo a simple question, what new things have you done since starting uni?....it can be anything from dirty things, to crazy things, to strange things you've done because you've been skint! or even new food you've tried.

        I'll start..

        Since starting uni i've:

        - acted like a massive slut


        ....and i'm sure theres many more! A lot of these things i regret but hey! uni is supposed to be the best time of your life! So just a fun question,


        What new things have you experienced at uni? Fess up!
        Your parents will be so proud...

        No, not particularly. It's still critcising people's personal life style choices for absolutely no valid reason whatsoever. Yeah, you can say self-respect, but respect for one's self and what leads to a lack of respect for one self and what doesn't is subjective. Why should someone care what bigots think about themselves? People place too much value on self-respect, if anyone were to care as much about what people thought of their fashion preferences and much as their sexual preferences they'd be labeled pathetically superficial. Give me a valid reason why that's a bad analogy.
        BTW IDK if the quote will go through, I'm using a different OS and for some reason Firefox doesn't want to quote.
