    Oh god, I know what you mean. I keep weighing myself - I definitely haven't put on weight, but I'm sure I should do with my increase in eating, and complete nonexistance of any excersize...

    I went to a dance class last night though which was reeaaaaallly good. Although I am still aching now, and moving is slightly difficult. I would love to start running as well - I actually got to downloading the NHS couch to 5k plan (although I could probably start on week three or something :/) until I remembered the reason I don't run... Every time I do, chavs like to point out how out of breath I look It seems silly to drive to somewhere decent to run :/

    I live right by a field next to some woods (living in wales that's not a shocker.)
    I am in a small city though :P strange place.
    I love running my dog in the woods, especially like at night.
    It's pretty awesome because the woods are right next to a strait (like the love child of a mini sea and a really big river).
    So when the moon shines it like hits through the leaves and it's just legend.
    sounds cheesy but there's not much better.

    Also I can put my Ipod on and sing as loud as I want and no one will hear .

    Gets a bit awkward when you find come across some students camping or something and you're running and singing some Reel Big Fish or something.

    but nah you should ignore them anyway, or just go late at night when they're busy getting their stomachs pumped in A+E.

    When I was younger and couldn't sleep i'd walk my dog in the small of the morning, because he'd be awake and I couldn't sleep.
    Never saw anyone at that time.

    I love where I live, If I go to somewhere like Leeds i'll miss being near the sea tbh.
    It's also dead quiet, that's also the problem with my area though.
    my city has 15,000 locals and 16,000 students so it's not a big place.
    It'l be one of those places where I enjoy going to uni but i'll also love coming home for the holidays.

    I know, I love a bit of ska punk.
    However randomers I trip over because they've gone into the woods for "private time" are never that impressed.

    Bless, your city has 30 000 people, my town has 160k.
    I can't sing while I run, that's just too much for me. But there's this path that's about 3 miles long with no roads near it and it's my favourite place to run. I should be more scared that a murderer might jump out the bushes and be like "AHHHHHH!" and chase me with a knife. Of course I will be extremely fit and sprint away from them with ease.

    Grr my PS is 5000 characters. This is too annoying since I cannot find what I should cut down on! Teachers are saying "just cut down on the irrelevant stuff". It is ALL relevant (in my mind) .

    Woah that is a lot! Get people who haven't seen it as much as you have to have a look. I realised I had long phrases such as "While working in an oncology department, I observed" when I could have just had, "In oncology, I observed". Obviously you'll need to cut out actual chunks of experience that are not as good as the rest, but rephrasing things and changing small words helps cut down on those last few x

    that's not nearly as annoying as when you're 1 or 2 characters over the limit and you've already cut the PS down to it's bare bones!

    i suggest rephrase things using shorter sentences- that way you'll retain all the points while using less characters.

    Yes that's correct for any course other than Medicine, Dentistry or Vet science.

    Anything else is cool Good luck

    I kinda freaked out when you said you hadn't heard of adding last choices...
    even though I know it's possible because ucas says it and my referee said it as well...hahahaha...

    Yeahh you can! I'm trying to research that now - I've managed to get over the initial AHHHHH feeling of sending my application off, and I finally feel like I can actually think about it now haha.

    Only problem is whether to go for an academic subject (which for me would probably be some kind of mixture between biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, genetics and maybe a bit of biomedical sciences stuck in there for good measure) or try my hand at a vocational course. No idea what though - although I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want to do Pharmacy. Sounds like a great career, but I'm just not sure its for me :/
