    Sherbourne and Bluebell, only problem with the second being the cost. Can't wait to go! What you up to for the rest of the holidays?
    Yeah, Bluebell is the most expensive, but it is my second favourite. I'm learning to drive at the moment, and hopefully will pass my test in September before I go to Warwick. My friends and I are also playing CS:GO whenever we can, although they are much better than me .

    Ah, I mained Shaman when I played, got a bunch of gold so I will probably get the first wing of the expansion, maybe we can play some time?
    Would love to, but may or may not be possible - I play on US servers, so can only play others on there. It means that so far I have been forever alone throughout my history with Hearthstone.

    Sounds good, failed my test for the second time today, hopefully third times the charm :P CSGO took up so much of my time before overwatch came out. After hundreds of hours me and my mates could never get past around Master Guardian II. We were pretty terrible! Overwatch is our go to game now though, its so fun, have you played it?

    I got AAAB, and a friend got AABB. Our results this year were A*AAB and A*A*A respectively, so you can definitely get in so long as you put the effort in.

    Another hearthstone lone wanderer here, it is a harsh life. Although i haven't played it in about a month and the new adventure hasn't covinced me to "relapse"

    I can't even remember where I applied to, so 5th September whatever I get allocated will be a complete surprise to me. Though, if I remember correctly, none of the halls particularly stood out from the others, good or bad.

    Got to say, the new adventure is well worth a look. Plenty of good humour and some fun new gimmicks. I tend to stop-start with Hearthstone too though - playing to grind gold for the next expansion then stopping until it hits.

    I might spare an hour for the adventure then; the other 23 are currently reserved for Overwatch rn .

    Yeah, been working my way through Introduction to Java Programming by Y. Daniel Liang, to refresh my memory on Java, and Computers LTD by David Harel is really good as well, and is only a couple of quid on amazon.
    Okay brilliant, I wasn't sure what to choose tbh, but I'll check them out. I've not done Java before (I have done VB and C#), is it fairly easy to pick up?

    Yeah the books great at introducing the topics, and there is tonnes of questions/exercises. From what I've been told I think c# is fairly similar, not done it myself though.

    Only done VB and Python, so was gonna take a look at C#, so thanks for bringing my attention to Java instead.

    Np, I think thats the language they use in the first couple of modules judging by their website.
