    Hey y'all!

    Is it just me who is contracting carpel tunnel syndrome from all this computer-based socializing? Wouldn't it be nicer to just have a good old-fashioned Skype? I'll add any takers to my Skype contact list, incoming freshman to current student, so we can have some amazing face-to-face convos on Bristol, accommodation, and everything in between! Reply if you are down!

    We can even schedule some group chats via Google or whatnot at a set time. Imagine the possibilities, guys. Video cams rule!

    A third thing, and probably the least important, is that I'm pretty virgin to England and British culture and would appreciate a few tips here and there. Other than backpacking through Ireland for 2 weeks and Scotland for one, I've only seen London for five days....during the Queen's Jubilee! Now that can't be representative of ordinary everyday life in England, can it?

    Anticipating new Skype buddies soon!

    Warmly,
    Sarah from Austin

    Hey Sarah! I'm actually not British, but would love to video chat Except I have exams all of next month, so probably after that.

    Hey everyone! I'm coming to Bristol in September as well
    I know this is a very late reply, but the skype idea sounds cool! My username is kishan500, feel free to add me [Although I probably won't have much time to chat till after exams]

    I've lived in the UK all my life so I guess I know a thing or 2 about British culture etc :rolleyes:
