I would suggest doing something which will allow you to develop your real life interpersonal and team-work skills. I am an online gamer myself, but nothing can replace real human interaction, especially when working in a team.
Online communication is bare-bones. It does not prepare you for anything, except practicing your foreign language skills (as it is in my case - English is not my first language).

I thought introvert = sitting in your room and studying all day, not talking to anyone and just watching video tutorials till the day repeats.
Kind of like groundhog day, but learning different stuff.

Umm, what games might you suggest? Also, have you played Travian? It's kind of similar to this but not so sure
Damien mentioned he considers himself an introvert. I identify myself as such as well, but that does not mean that nothing can be done about it. Online games don't help at all, I am afraid. Only activities which require substantial human interaction do and I am speaking from personal experience.

Read the whole article here:
If you think it's satire, the author has also written another article called:
"New rankings say our degrees are so much better than everyone else’s"
A Nottingham Student echoes the Oxford student with his article:
If you don’t go to a Russell Group, then why are you at uni?
Don't think that most Oxbridge students hold this mentality, but I was surprised at how Nottingham is trying to be elitist .
I don't understand why some of them / some people love to look down on us.

I think he is right. The fact that all of you are so butt-hurt about it that you feel
a) you need to make a post about it
b) you need to insult him to salvage some of your pride and reassure yourself of your worth
c) are taking the time to read the supplementary articles,
proves that what he is saying is hitting a nerve because subconsciously you know it is true but are loathe to admit it.
Not going Oxford and Cambridge cuts off significant opportunities for your life, it's the truth, nothing bad about it.Last edited by guntby; 05-06-2015 at 00:56.

This is a load of bull. Some of the smartest people in the world didn't even need an education to get to where they are now. Oxbridge graduates may indeed include some of the most famous actors and politicians around, but only on a national level.
