    I was hoping to make 5, but there you go. Didn't get ill once during the summer, and even at school I barely ever got a cold.

    FML. Sign if you are one of the many few to get freshers flu within the first couple of days.

    Hello there ill buddy I'm just thankful I don't have class tomorrow, but i've still got to go in for a while. Also I've got a concert to go to this evening where the tickets cost £15 but I get in free. They were limited and I put my name on the list so my professor is gonna kill me for not going.

    How is your timetable for the rest of the week op?

    ps I hope you feel better soon

    I'm extremely susceptible to illness so I'm very likely to get it

    Ahh my friend, wait and see.

    It's the same as at school though, just on a grander scale. Imagine thousands of people coming from all corners of the country, bringing thousands of 'foreign' germs with them that they're immune to/have already had, but other people won't have been 'exposed' to the illness that's ravaging another person's locality so they'll go down like a snivelling sack of spuds.

    The first few months in lecture halls, it is advisable to sit near the front merely so that you can hear what is being said over all the coughing, no lie.

    I'm hoping to avoid it this year because, although I'm living in college, my neighbours are all in their 30s/40s and this place is so clean it's sterile. That said, all it takes is a snotty 18 yr old and one sneeze...

    Eek, it is a week tomorrow that Freshers 'officially' starts isn't it?! Oh dear...

    Anyhow. I've got a bit of a cold anyway, I think from where the weather has changed so quickly and I've not dressed appropriately for it. Idk.
