    Haahah eeeeerm no ahahah i wouldn't really expect things to come out of the washing machine burnt im not sure that its even possible! :') my biggest concern about laundry at uni is that I cant be arsed to wait with it :') ahhaha I'm fab at ironing! my dad pays me to do it ahahah :')
    Yeah welll i kinda wanna go so i figure if i stay in a hotel and don't do too much outdoorsy stuff then hoooopefully i can avoid all the bite-y kill-y animals :') hahah well I don't think i had jet lag on the way back either :') probably is though because you can force yourself to stay up later, but you cant force yourself to sleep if you're not tired, so going west and having time go backwards is probably easier! (logic )
    Yeah i'm looking forward to having pictures etc that I dont have here! though i have some in frames that ima take as well for the desk
    I'm pretty sure my washing machine lived through the cold war, i don't under estimate it :L You get paid to iron!? I should have though of demanding that from my mam since i'm pretty fussy when i iron :')
    Hahaha, but the outdoorsy stuff is like 90% of australia! But then again, i was under age and when i went but still really liked the cities as well Never know, there might be a leeds, australia as well! Hmmm, i had never thought of it that way, that's some pretty sound logic! Are you sure i can't convince you to take a stem degree?
    Oh yeah, i keep forgetting about how big the desk is and all - i might have to find something to put on there too By the way, have you got your timetable yet?

    If it makes you feel any more confident, I'm studying German Studies and Linguistics and I haven't done German since GCSE! I think if you are good at it it will all come back to you But that said I kept in practice with German which makes my life a bit easier. Good luck if you take it though Languages are always being neglected! haha :')
    I would love to do French or any language really. I was good at French at GCSE and I really enjoyed it but my class and teacher made me feel so comfortable. I don't wanna feel stupid if I'm not very good, because I always compare myself to others and I know there's gonna be people who are amazing hahaha We get to speak to our course leader first though, don't we? So I'll see what they recommend! thank you though!

    Yeah I was thinking of doing linguistics, it seems relevant to the course and I think you can combine English Lang. and Linguistics and do a joint honours after the first year, which seems pretty cool I was thinking of doing a language too, although I was awful at french! Maybe Japanese? I don't even know if Lancaster does it, but I've always fancied learning a new alphabet...
    Yeah, we did Linguistics as part of our A Level course and I hated it at first but it was really interesting! I know that doing a language is better but I don't think I'm good enough to do it at this level I don't wanna struggle, because I'm such a stress head if I can't do something hahaha

    Is anyone else here doing LICA courses, like Theatre or Music or something? I'm doing Theatre and English Literature, and I really want to read Creative Writing as my minor. But I've gotten an email from the LICA people saying that it's recommended that I choose Modernism in the Arts because it's 'prerequisite for other Part 2 modules in LICA, such as Art or Music'. Does this mean I have to do Modernism in the Arts to continue Theatre next year, or will I be okay choosing Creative Writing because I'm only doing Theatre?

    There is a Harry Potter society? I am attempting to suppress my inner geek now.
    I think most people are trying to :P I just like the idea that they sort you into a house I want to know what I would be in. The rest sounds good as well Do you think you might go to it?

    Why don't you just order bedding from here? http://online-payments.lancaster-uni...did=1&deptid=3
    I just need the sheets I have everything else, so it wouldn't be worth it, I do wonder what one of the bedding packs look like though. If they are just plain or have a colour or pattern on.

    My school had a trip to the uni a few years back (Ironically, i was one of the few people in my class who didn't go :rolleyes: ), and my friends still keep telling me how impressive it was - odds are we'll all be happy... if you can trust reviews from early-teenaged boys
    Yup, i'm pretty used to being in both kinda big group and tiny ones, and they both have upsides and downsides really - but i think 6-8 is pretty perfect for flats to me!
    Yeah, i saw ours a few days ago - it looks like it's gonna be great What sort of stuff is happening at grizedale? All i know is that it's a tradition for you guys to have a hog roast... which is too cool!
    Haha that is quite ironic my school did a trip like that as well but only the localish ones and then you had to choose which one you wanted to visit, I went to Exeter but I don't really remember all that much as it was about four or five years ago.
    I think it probably will be a good size as long as most of the flat get along.

    Grizedale have quite a few things with county which is strange but I know we have a bar crawl (pub golf) of the campus bars and the next night is a pub crawl around the city, luckily they've scheduled a night in so everyone can recover after those two. We also have the hog roast and white t-shirt party on the first night. Then a casino night but the dress code is quite formal which is scary. I've ordered a dress for it but I'm not sure if it will be too short, although I think it mentioned shot roulette so alcohol is involved so I'm hoping it's not too formal. Then a foam party and uv party. And the best one is the pub quiz, I love them doubt I will ever win one though :P It sounds really good though what is yours like and sorry I pretty much gave you the timetable but everyone of them is worth a mention :P

    I've seen a few people say they have their timetables do you have yours yet?

    It's so strange it seems so far away and yet really close at the same time it's quite scary :s

    I went to a different uni last year so already have most things I just need to sort out bedding, they have such silly sized beds at Lancaster :rolleyes:

    what about you?
    It is a little scary getting this close

    Ah ok, not so much of a panic then this time round, i know they are a pain being just a little bit longer then normal

    I have got most of it now just the last few thing to decorate the room with

    I hate flat sheets as well but I will just have to get used to them :rolleyes:
    I still had to buy more stuff though it's amazing how much you forget to buy usually little things. Although I may have just realised I have a serious lack of winter clothing so I'm going to have to stock up for the cold weather in Lancaster

    I was going to print off pictures to put in my room, I didn't really have anything last year so my room was really boring. I need to do something better this year not sure what to get though, what are you buying for it?

    Hahah, it's fine, just shows you're excited! Anyway, i was gonna tell you all mine anyway We have a toy box/tv character theme night first which i'm really looking forward to, a foam party the next night, then a Tiki/beach party - they were nice enough to put a comedy night in the middle to recover on :') the golf-y campus crawl is after that, followed by the UV rave which should be fun, and the pub quiz(I'm kind of okay at them), and "Rock n Roll Bingo" which sounds interesting Yeah, we have lots of stuff with lonsdale, and i noticed the UV party was County vs. Grizedale - i guess this is where the rivalries begin!

    Do you mean the course timetables? If so, yeah, i checked the student portal a couple days ago - mine is... quite nice How about you?

    That sounds really good as well, jealous about the comedy night and possibly the bingo :P UV night is colour coded as well you have to dress in you college colours and Grizedale is Blue which i'm pretty happy with

    I can't see mine which is really annoying but it seems no one doing marketing has heard yet so hopefully they get the timetable up on Monday and then I need to figure out what else I want to for minors :s

    Just out of curiosity you probably haven't tried but can you access the Target Connect jobsite for Lancaster, apparently that's where they will be advertising jobs in the college bars and stuff and it tells me I don't have permission when I log in

    I hear that the sugarhouse is like one of the main places that everyone goes to? Might be worth the investment if that's the case.

    Yeah it is. It's owned by LUSU (Lancs Uni student union) and it always the place that people go to at the end or even in college/uni events.
