    They should really teach basic economics/budgeting skills in schools.
    Mhmmmm. I mean it's common sense really, but some people lack the ability to live within their means. The frustrating thing is it's usually ditsy girls who'll marry a rich guy and their lifestyle will be funded.

    You can do it to an extent as long as it's not a permanent lifestyle change. The problems arise when people become dependant on it, and actually convince themselves that it's sustainable.

    know what you guys mean about living beyond your means..

    I was very guilty of doing that as a student, and only now that I am working am I realising the true cost of leading the life I want to, and doing it in a sustainable manner that wont end in me being financially ****ed.

    in the end there is only 2 options: Reduce your quality of life and live within your means... or increase your means..

    Nothing wrong with a girl increasing their means by getting a rich guy. both parties will probably be happy, for the short-term atleast.

    Most students in certain halls are generally morons, it really depends on what type of halls you end up in.

    Sister got bullied for being German, and her friend also for being German Turkish. Got yelled at with the "Heil Hitler" b.s. and also targetting of her mixed heritage. Had her stuff stolen/vandalised by the girls and the guys. She went to the same RG as I did. So, I am under no illusions that the average student can be just as cretinous as the stereotypical mong on the street. Also, the Facebook/Twitter bull****, God.

    I got pissed off when I found out and print screened all of their posts online, racist stuff included. One of the girls was a national level athlete. So funnily, when she found out I deliberately stitched them up hilarity ensued. I went around with some mates personally to warn them first, that they had a chance to change (obviously did not aware them of the print screens I had). The guys stepped the **** down like the little first year pussies they were. But then I decided "**** that" and deliberately baited them even more online with a dud 'student' account. More print screens.

    After that I released the print screens one by one on social networks and sites like Reddit and 4Chan. Hilarity ensued. Sister told me to stop as I was going a bit far and the girl was on the floor puking up from fear her whole life was crashing. The rest of them were in their rooms in tears. It was chaos and they were at each others' throats anyway because they were paranoid that one of them was a mole lmao. They begged to have them removed as they were getting a lot of hate mail for their publicly published views, I moved my sister to another halls which she ended up meeting good friends.

    They wrote a letter in apology even when I said they did not need to. And asked me to remove the pictures. I did... well in part. Sent them 'proof'. Little do they know I left a few crumbs :lol: . One of the lads who they sent to be their 'spokesperson' could not look me and my mates in the eyes lol. Funny thing he said when I was giving him the death stare in public "You would not be so confident without your mates there". My response "Oh, but they are :lol:".

    But, ok, maybe that whole episode did not show the best side of me. Went a bit far but oh well, no regrets really.

    Omg that's absolutely horrible, why on Earth would they do stuff like that to your sister?!

    I don't blame you for what you did tbh, looks like they learned the hard way and hopefully now they won't treat people badly.

    For an essay? That's a 2.1, so yes. 60 usually indicates that the majority of what you wrote was good, you're on the right lines, but there is something that you haven't done enough of or missed out on.

    Open and widespread racism. And people opposed to it did not speak out against it. The German Turk was muslim, they drew a pig's face on her door. Stuff like that.

    Yup! My uni makes certain stuff too easy :rofl: majority of people will cheat. Google is your friend. Although it's hard to find proper law cases on google etc. And it's timed but still easy. Answered them honestly hence why only 60% and yeah guess you're right haha thanks.
