    How do you leave a line inside a spoiler thing?
    I wrote out a 20ish line maths-y explanation inside one and it's a bit of a mess

    You only have to get the vaccine if you're a fresher. Older years were vaccinated for a different strain.

    So, moral of the story: no getting off with your college parents.

    Alternative moral: college siblings are fair game.

    Good luck with that.

    Just think... If she does the same course as you, you may end up in supervisions with her

    Better than trying your luck with the supervisor.

    I'm the only mathmo in a history/MML family. I feel like I've been adopted. :'(

    Oh god I know someone who was obsessed with trying to sleep with his supervisor in 1A. It was hilarious.

    Hey,
    Coming for law at Sidney Sussex.
    Any other Sidney freshers out here?
    Had some questions about the collage also, if any current students at Sidney see this...

    Aha yes, NatSci - very kind words, thank you! Had I taken Art at A-Level instead of Biology, I would certainly have considered architecture

    Haven't had any formal painting lessons. I took Art at GCSE but I first picked up a brush, paints and canvas in year 8 and essentially taught myself when I had to spend a long period of time off school. Lower school art lessons weren't the most stimulating either :P
    I see.
    Is landscape painting your favourite?

    My daughter thought of reading Architecture at uni for a short while, but gave up the idea when she realized A-level Art is quite crucial subject for it, and she's not interested in Art.....

    You might've looked into it already, but there're several art-related clubs/societies at Cambridge (university-wide ones). I think a few colleges have their own as well.
    Maybe interested?

    Oh god... Eww... just to clarify, I was only joking - I'm not actually obsessed with finding someone :P (Least of all a supervisor that would be weird)
