    Nothing's wrong with the North, I would just rather be heading somewhere slightly warmer than colder
    And no, I do not hahah. Her accent is horrendous and makes me cringe. I don't think I sound that northern, but then again I probably sound exceptionally northern to people from the south
    oh i want to hear your voice northern accents are pretty! but i agree with you on cheryl, i dont even find her thattttt attractive tbh.

    and fair enough about the weather, my mate drove home from uni to london for the winter holidays, when the snow was like 3 foot in december and got stuck on the motorway for 12 hours . do you drivee?

    Posh in terms of gowns and formals etc or posh in terms of people who go there?
    I heard that it's one of the party colleges like Collingwood.
    I chose St Aidan's as my preference because I had no idea how to choose between them all.

    Posh as in snobby boring people, because durham does have that reputation, which could put me off and make me choose manchester.

    Have you been allocated to Josephine Butler, but want to change?

    If you have a good reason to want to swap, email them at [email protected]

    Yeah, you can ask to swap but you have to ring up the college first and see if it's a plausible option. I didn't go to JB as it was self catered, and miles away from the Theology Dept.

    Oh no i have an offer but haven't been allocated yet.. i was just wandering so they said yes and let you pick or... ? thanks!

    My friends brother was in collingwood and from what I heard he had a... lively social life
    I hope it is anyway, partly (well, wholly) why I chose it

    Yea, my dad worked for the UN but he retired a few years ago which is why we moved to Rome since my mum went to highschool here.
    Yea, I've really loved moving around and this is the longest I've been in one place and I'm beginning to feel that.. I'm looking forward to moving, not because I don't like it here, but because I miss being new and in a new place.
    It was sad saying goodbye to friends but when you're younger its easy to make new friends, plus in an international community everyone's moving around all the time so its easy to adapt.

    Yea I love the college rivalry about Durham too, it just adds to the whole experience!

    Haha yea, I mention Anthropology and quite a few people mention Bones. I've never seen it but I got quite sick of CSI after a while so I don't know how much I'd like it.
    I remember I was having dinner with this guy and it came up what I wanted to do, and he was like, "oo, anthropology like in the nanny diaries!" and its like.. um.. no. lol

    Yea, I guess while you're studying it you'll begin to figure out more and more what you're interested in, so even if you have only a vague idea of what you're interested in, its good you don't have to decide because you'll have the time to explore the discipline.

    Amen about the IB.. I didn't understand in year 12 how much worse year 13 would be. All the people in the year above were like, "just you wait till next year" and I was thinking, "yea, yea..." but now I'm like.. omfg!
    Just a few more months and then freedom!!
    Sounds like you got the travel bug!.. no I've had fun living in three different countries... it makes for some really good stories to tell True about the international community thing, but at my school most of them are portuguese and have been there all their lives, there's only a couple of international students, so you're really interesting when you come to my school if you're from abroad

    haha.. you should try bones... its got a lot more humour than CSI

    Same here, last year all the year 13's were telling me, you're gonna suffer next year and I was just like keep quiet.. but now I'm doing the exact same to my year 12's The one piece of advice I always give them, do your extended essay in the summer! and now the stress is really turning up- orals and TOK essay next week and then TOK presentations and more orals after that!:eek: Still on 19 May I will be free forever (my last exam is biology
