Ive recently learnt the art of cheese on toast, and soup, so im getting there. My gf has been giving me a crash course in cooking but its not working, but ive learnt how to use a microwave!
"The Art" of soup??

You just open the tin / carton and heat it in a saucepan!
Exactly the same as baked beans, in fact. ^o)

Doctor Mysterio - don't forget the traditional student fry up-anything goes and can produce some wonderful meals. So far you've got soup, beans on toast, cheese on toast and fry ups. Add to that an early morning bacon barm from the stall at All Saints on Oxford Road and you should be set up for the day.

Im actually scaring myself how un-domesticated i am, but everyone is right, there are so many easy stuff that can be made. Cheers all.

Personally...

My halls. They're a wierd format in that you're either in a single flat, or a flat with 5 people, and I'm in one of the single flats. The warden was also far from comforting, telling me that they had a hell of a problem with the people that stayed there last year... involving drugs and the place getting trashed (they're private halls). I've already begun to plan out some sort of escape plan if this happens this year.

I am a social person, and if people just hide in their flats, or are the scum of humanity, then I'm going to go mental.

EDIT: Turns out the guy that showed me round didn't know his arse from his elbow - I got shown a studio flat, not the flat I was going to be in. I am sharing a kitchen with other folk, so I'm a lot happier now! Woo!

im worried about getting drunk and making a fool of myself when i first meet people. I havent drunk in ages and am such a lightweight Im also going to miss my boyfriend loads, he only lives 25 mins from my uni, but he doesnt drive and i cant take my car, he works long hours so its going to be diffecult to find time to see each other, im just worried i wont take this very well and will end up feeling really lonely. Im also really shy so im nervous about meeting new people.
My boyfriend lives near San Francisco I'm always worried when I meet people that they will think I'm a freak for being with someone that far away.

ask around your mum and grandma and nans etc and ask for some recipes, or you could buy one of those cooking for dummies books:P

Obviously so....

some peopel honestly...i'm sure we wash ore than they do yet thet choose to **** us off for our somewhat better taste in music and choice of lifestyle :p:
did i **** you off? non i did not, how is me saying i dont want to listen to indie music any more snobby than indie people saying that they'd hate to be in a chavvy dance music night? I just like what i like, and i have no problem with indie people who wash, its just i have a very picky taste in hygiene plus i have had very bad experiences with people who treat me as some kind of bimbo because i like Rnb which has somewhat clouded my judgement

That people will expect me to want to go out clubbing ALL the time. So I hope I meet someone on the same wavelength. I can enjoy a good night out (and do quite often here in Brum), its just im really uncomfortable with dancing until ive had quite a few to drink and I get very self consious. I like to go to a bar/pubsomewhere I can hear people and hold a proper conversation every now and again too.

Am also scared that I wont meet anyone who will go to the pub and watch some footie with me. Since im female and living in a single sex flat, im hoping I dont have to go alone to watch my beloved Birmingham City! :dong:

I shouldn't have to make all the effort though. I'm the one living on budget. They live with their parents still and have cars. They're are just lazy and can't be bothered to travel.

I'm the same. I don't go out to clubs much but when I do I need to have a few beers in me before I get into the swing of things. My mates always go to the rock/alternative club (can't think of how else to describe it) in town all the time but sometimes I prefer to stay in the pub and watch the footie/have some beers/ play pool etc. I go to the club with them occassionally and have a great time but I won't normally bother unless I feel like having a god few drinks that night.

I'm sure you'll find plenty of people who like the same things as you

Yeah, I shouldnt worry....I'm not going to want to go out every night...I like a quiet night in with a book sometimes anyway. There'll be plenty of people who are like you - thats the good thing about uni, there's variety!

I'm worried about that too-I'm not a clubber really and would much prefer sitting in a pub or going to a gig.I don't want to be dragged out clubbing every night because although I occassionally go...I pretty much hate it.

I'm worried that I will be living with people who are boring and keep themselves to themselves - I like talking - i'm all for alone time each day but if my flatmates just stay in their room all the time i will go crazy! also worried about talking too much and people thinking i'm really loud and annoying! Not a major fan of clubbing but I like going out every night - pub, cinema, casino etc.. Really hope I make some good friends and learn how to stop spending so much money! I'm thinking about just getting a student loan and having it as back up funds (or clothing allowance, lol!)

Not one of my major fears but i've met a few peeps who are already @ my uni who seem slightly stuck up "in London..........". I am sure there won't be many of them.

I am scared about that too. I have never lived far away from home and coming to the UK from America is a big move... can't really change my mind once I am there. Even though I am really excited to make such a big change, I'm also really scared that it will be the complete opposite of what expected and I won't fit in. I think reading this thread made me think about this whole thing a lot more... hehe.

Oh my....

So this girl doesnt want to end up living with people that are petty and have strange sexual inclinations... Ok.................... :confused:
anally retentive adjective (ALSO anal) INFORMAL
describes someone who is too worried about being organized and tidy

Their sexual inclinations are irrelevent to me...
