I havent had any snail-mail from friends in agggeeess! Theres something really exciting about getting a handwritten letter dont you think..... you know, instead of email. *sighs*
Its more personal!
I wondered about that; does the college allocate parents and then give addresses out? I mean theoretically there could be a massive 'child auction' with students bidding for the most appealing future offspring but that sounds a bit snide. haha. plus i assume they are allocated according to subject?
