    oh, whoops you said you had labs or something, so assumed Physics. they're not all that different from each other tbf.

    I do Economics, as you have probably been able to tell :cool:

    I thought you did Maths, because you kept asking maths questions.

    It's cos the actual Economics questions are easy :ahee: The Maths bits are more difficult.

    I see. What's your timetable like?
    My timetable is ok. Tuesday is a busy day, and today should be quite busy.

    But I skip most lectures :ahee: I had one at 10 this morning, I was just like "lol no point in that one".

    :rofl: My attendance is so poor! I think the fewest I've missed in a week (after the 1st week :rolleyes:) is 4? Maybe 3...

    I was really :emo: last week/the week before, so I missed about half of my lectures and even(!) a lab session. :erm:

    well last week I didn't go to a single lecture - beat that! :awesome: I was ill at the end of last week though...

    aren't labs compulsory? :erm: what do you do in them for mech eng?

    next year though I'm gonna go to every single lecture I possibly can. next year counts 50% towards my final degree + I'll be living away from campus so it'll just be depressing staying in my bedroom in a nearby town where I'll be around no students during the day.

    :zomg: Why not?! That's terrible! :mmm:

    Well yeah, but the one I missed was a computer lab. I work with someone else and we started a MATLab project. I went to the lab sesh this week and we've almost finished now. :mmm: It was meant to take us until the end of term. :king1:

    The other labs are experiments; I've had a couple of electronics ones (fiddling with analogue and digital things), a materials one (torsion testing 2 materials), 2 dynamics ones (one was balancing rotors and stuff, the other was... finding the moment of inertia or something :p:).

    I had a fluids lab on Tuesday, and I carried out a few experiments finding drag coefficients and other things, and drawing flow pictures. I have another fluids lab at 1 today.

    I have one more materials lab at the end of term, then I'll be free! :yeah: To revise. :sigh:

    Good plan!

    I want to live close to the uni again :yep: My timetable's even worse next year, so I probably won't have time to come back to my room between lectures, and as a result skip the later lectures. But I think I have the most trouble with the 9 o'clocks, of which I have several. :sigh:

    I just have no motivation :sigh:

    eeew, MATLab :yucky: The Maths people use that, no idea about it myself :erm: And we have a weird Computer Data Analysis project which I have no clue when it's got to be done for lol Such a pointless module. Our last assignment was using this random Maths program to write a load of equations :rofl:

    Sounds like A Level Physics practicals, only longer :erm: And revision, yeah - that's come round far too quickly :sigh: This term has gone far too quickly, and it doesn't feel like that long since I was revising for A Levels :erm:

    I had a choice really: live further away but in a better area, or live closer but in a worse area.

    I chose the former, mainly because even if I did live closer, it's still like a 30 minute walk back to my room (maybe longer) and I cba with that. And cba to take a bus back too.

    it overlaps with one of our other modules which everyone does.

    why can't you believe it? Economics does contain Maths too ya know :yep:
    You've done stuff before we did it

    It's a bit retarded that your first year = 0%, isn't it?

    Yeah, it's a lot like A Level Physics.

    :sadnod: I feel like I've done almost nothing , and it's already more than halfway through the academic year. :sigh:

    30 minutes?! :lolwut: Skeen, so have you found people to live with yet?
