    I'd possibly be better off asking the pharmacists, but do any of you know the cheapest way of getting diclofenac (or similar) OTC? I've tried Voltareze, but at £7/pack I'm not keen.
    Lloyds Pharmacy do a high strength ibuprofen that was pretty good

    No, not all of it, its much too fast. I know loads more than i would if i read a book for an hour though, i know what bits to read again or think about (often only really need the latter!) which is much more efficient than going through all of it from scratch (as far as i can see?) and leaves you more time to read more complicated things than basics, which is essential for our other exams.
    See if ours were like that, I'd perhaps agree with you. But the vast majority aren't.

    course feedback? do others agree?
    They'd never change it even if it was a totally unanimous opinion. It'd involve too much of a course remodel.
    Most others feel content with the lectures, to be honest. But most of the people on my course aren't quite as nerdy as me and therefore learn the minimum level science/general detail they can get away with. As a result they're perfectly happy to memorise the lecture slides we get. Maybe it's just my - and a select few others' - problem :p:

    So far disappointing tbh. Don't get why they're living together?

    Tvcatchup isn't live, it's a second or two behind - apparently it's been through the courts already and proved that you don't need a license for it. Alternatively, if you watch it on a laptop, but run it on battery instead of mains power, it comes under your parents TV license.

    Any of the BL lot planning to be in the Griff tomorrow?
    You heading in for Le Bars last night? As far as I know, none of the TSR freshers tend to go to tables all that much. Can't speak for the upper years.

    I'm still in Wales so I won't be.

    Sometimes yes, especially as I've been having some problems with my friends recently
    and there was a period where PBL wasn't working for me
    and I am so far away from home here -- like you I like home, I am close to my family and have a lot of close friends in my home city who have stayed there -- my other option was significantly closer and meant I could have gone home a lot easier

    I don't think it's worth pondering on, but I try to remind myself it's normal to have doubts. I was always torn when it came to making a decision but I remind myself why it is I chose this course. Not everyone will be 'I can't wait' to go back I think that's just the said thing.
    Thanks, and thanks to the others as well. It's reassuring that I'm not the only one. I thought it was just me and that made me feel worse.

    I have a feeling the show might be putting them up in accommodation. It was quite boring tbh, all it managed to show was that 1-2 of the house-mates are tosspots.

    Coming straight from work, travelling for over two hours there and back and work early in the morning.

    Wouldn't miss Granddad's last night for the world.

    Good fresher *pats* First year is all about sleep deprivation and alcoholic liver disease.
    It is?? I missed the memo twice obviously...

    (Original post by Becca-Sarah)
    Almost ditto. Exam study leave has turned into an excuse to stay in bed til at least lunchtime.
    It was such a drag to get out of bed today for my first 9am lecture in 2 weeks

    :yes: I just kept going, I know where that is etc. etc. :getmecoat:

    Also, I found first uni infuriating sometimes and wondered why I was there, if I was ever going to get anywhere etc. etc. Now I'm here, I don't wonder if I should be here, more I just find it hard sometimes.

    :rofl: that made me happy.

    We had a party after the last pbl session. The tutor sent me an email about how good an idea it was. I don't think he realised I was celebrating not having to deal with pbl again rather than anything else (our tutor was keen, he wrote one of the scenarios for the course).

    Depressing that when I did the word cloud for my statuses of '10 one of the largest words was, 'PBHell'
