Anyone else in the Aitken Wing or know what it's like :smile:? Also I'm thinking of going on the Alton Towers trip :P anyone doing that?

Scroll to see replies

I'm in Block B, Flat 17... more info would be nice please :smile: The term "Wingcest" as mentioned in the Aitken Wing booklet thingy could do with some explaining too :P ... lol

I'll be on the Alton Towers trip for a laugh, my aim is to do as much as I can in that first week :biggrin:

Wow :biggrin: am I glad to see someone else in the same building. I thought I was all by myself :wink:

I'm studying Maths and AI (artificial intellegence), how about you?

Seen anyone else who's gonna be living with us :P ?
I'm doing a foundation year for engineering, funnily enough because I don't have maths.. :P

And the silence this thread has produced would suggest that no-one else here has been confirmed for Aitken yet. I know it's small, but surely not that small... lol

Looking forward to it nevertheless :biggrin:

Hey, I'm in Aitken too - Block A, flat 7.

Also going on the alton towers thang, should be a laugh!

Does anyone know how the flat numbers work? Was there something like 2 flats on each floor? I'm just trying to work out if I'm up loads of stairs ....carrying...heavy

It's soooooooo not hard to be tired in the afternoon... especially when you're up til 4am... *yawn*
I really should be going to bed earlier since I'm working on tuesday... but... it's always quiet in the morning... ah screw it.
*finds more caffeine* mmmm addiction...
@Asher/Yippo: Cool, I'm Steven... wasn't expecting to talk to a flatmate on here :biggrin:

@Daveid: thanks :biggrin: I took AS maths, and found it OK, but completely screwed up the exams and was forced to drop maths (I've never been much of an exam person :P) but I'll keep an open mind for the offer :biggrin:
I'm don't much fancy the clubs either, but hell, I'll go along and have a few quiet drinks or something - got to get to know people somehow, and that seems the easiest way I guess.

and @taimma: I'll probably need to be kept fit as well :P

In general, any ideas what 'clubs' you're going to join? I was thinking of doing the Duke of Edinburgh Award and a few sports like badminton, football etc.. I like the idea of inter-hall/department sports leagues, because they're not too serious or anything.

I could go away if you'd like *_*

AS maths wasn't so bad, A2 maths was a real smegger though... P3 makes kittens cry T.T

m'uh, I suck at sports generally... Perhaps if I can find a fencing club of some kind...

*purposefully rises above trying to flirt* =D
Didn't mean it like that :P . . . I meant it as in the chances were against finding someone in the same flat :P

Sorry about not saying much lately :P I been at my gf's past 4 days and her net's playing up so I never got on here, plus she kept distracting me :wink:

Yippo if you thought P3 was hard you shoulda done Further Maths - P4 and P5 almost made ME cry :P LOL

It appears I have flat C all to myself lol... :P

I wanna go on Rita, Queen of Speed! woot :P
I'll be stayin in the Aitken wing! I phoned 'em up today to find out.
I checked it out and it looks pretty funky! Nice grounds, lots of grass and trees and like a lake!

What's this Alton Towers trip you're all talking about? :eek: :biggrin: :cool:

When you recieve your Accommodation pack, which should be soon, there's a little blue booklet written by the Aitken wing Presidents and it's got loads of freshers week info in it. There are two trips to sign up for;

Club tour or
Club tour and Alton towers - £23 I think
