    Okay, guys I need some recommendations.

    Which pen is the best for long duration writing?

    And which notepads are best for maths?
    I prefer quite thick pens .. and ones with 4 colours :awesome: but i'm sure there are pens with like a special grip for comfort

    Definitely an A4 one that's all I can say really :lol: but you want rather thick paper so it doesn't rip and engrave the other pages and I prefer A glued top rather than the spine

    So I found one of the cassettes in the Garage with 'U2' written on it, call me naive but I expected it to be a U2 album. It contained some Everton songs, before suddenly playing Madonna, I'm sceptical about anything I read now

    Hahah, the days when people would record over your videos and cassettes. I have to say it has happened to me too!

    Haha, ;D
    It's only 5 miles it not too far! 15m car ride or bus which take 20m walk (or 5 min bus) plus 20m bus ride!

    How far did you travel? Do you have to go further now or not?
    How far is the college from your house?
    I'm guessing you will be taking a bus to get there everyday??

    Well my sixth form is 25 mins by bus.
    But I prefer to take a walk through the park to go school everyday instead of taking the bus - walking is 35 mins.
    I try to avoid the annoying kids (from the younger years in my school) on the bus as much as possible because they are always pushing and shoving.
    They are extremely irritating and it's definitely not the best bus journey ever.
    So yh, I've kind of boycotted the bus service on weekdays.

    To go college, I will have to take 2 buses - 1 hour long.
    I will have some trouble getting on the 1st bus because it's normally overcrowded with students who go to another college close by.

    Tbh, I do find it annoying but I'm used to overcrowded buses.
    After all, this is london!

    College is double the journey 11miles. But that's the driving route. To get to college:
    Car 10m OR bus 10m+15m OR cycle 30m
    Train 10m
    Walk 5m

    Well walking doesn't seem to be too far yeah the kids are really annoying. Luckily we'll no longer have to deal with them at school!

    I guess it won't be too fun to get the bus with all the other college people. Why did you go to that college?

    Yeah, whereas I'm not sure to busy busses! If I lived in the town I would but luckily as I live in a villiage hardly anyone wants to take the bus along the scenic route! Today I took the bus from town to home and there was literally 4 people on in for the whole time I was there!

    Honestly, if you guys can wear whatever you want to, and want some ladies, go for a suit
    Got two set of suits already :woo:
    Just need to buy some shirts, four whites and a pink pastel one should do it.

    And it looks like you guys have quite a lot of commuting to do to get to school :3
    I'm switching to another boarding house, which is 6th form only boys and girls. It's off campus and located within town so it's a 2-3 minute walk to school :3

    Only an idiot would wear a suit to sixth form :mmm:

    Ha, yeah... I'll be fine eventually. After a few weeks I'll stop bothering!
