For Oxonians past and present (but not future. No applicants, no offer holders, no would-be applicants, no wannabes!) to procrastinate in. For complaining about your workload, sharing stories, asking for advice and (most importantly, of course) sharing Combibos love

Spam away, my dear friends, spam away!

Dude, where's my gown?

Four universities, three degrees, one PG diploma and one "course" and the only gown I have is my Oxford scholars gown (whatever happened to my commoners' rag?)

I want a proper gown My brother's at Cambridge and even he has a gown with sleeves. And yes, I could become a scholar (but that requires a first in a humanities subject which requires becoming God). I just want the sleeves! I suppose the uniformity of gowns is better than the Tabs - some of their colleges don't even get gowns at all - but still...

Ah there lies the rub: said twin brother at Cambridge is also a virtuoso both on the clarinet and on the piano (the one instrument I do play) making it impossible for me to even touch the piano with him in the house simply because he is SO much better than me. (Yes, I may have an inferiority complex...)

If it's any consolation, I haven't played the piano (my principal instrument) properly in nearly 4 years. Which is a long time, for a muso :sadnod:

I can assure you this is definitely not true I'm a history scholar and definitely do not possess any form of divinity.

I miss playing music properly so much! Oh well. I've got books instead

Are you sure? Well anyway, it seems to me that it is at least almost impossible to predict let alone guarantee scholarships in the arts. Or maybe I'm being too pessimistic? I don't know.

Hey CompSci and Philosophy here: which year are you in? (college of course also be interesting, but you may not want to be that identifiable!)


Went to Combibos for the first time today! Absolutely flooded with Christians...
How funny, I went to Combibos for the first time last week (and thought of TLG) but was surrounded by observant Jews. Their chocolate milkshakes are awesome :awesome:

I disagree, I was in your college the other day and your name was up for some kind of academic achievement, therefore you are a god of some form :ninja:

PS, guys I actually left my gown at home (along with the rest of my sub-fusc), I think my family found it in my sister's wardrobe :iiam:. Now I can't go to Worcester formals until I get it back...:facepalm:

I totally missed that this was happening and my room was a tip. How embarrassing. I thought "oh, well, at least nobody will know it was my room," and then realised I put my name card from some meal or other in the slot on the door. Oops.
