    As advised, i am now putting this thread on here in the theory of getting more posts.

    Here's what people have put so far:

    (Original post by aleathiel)
    ya know what I hadnt even thought of that but knowing me (as Im so bad with names!) people will tell me their names and 2 mins after I'll be thinking great what did they say?? :confused: :p:
    (Original post by nic88)
    oh me too. im actually quite scared i'll not be able to remember anyones name! i'll be meetin so many people in the space of not long and i dont know any of them!
    (Original post by aleathiel)
    meh well at least I can feel better by thinking that whoever I meet might not remember my name either lol :p:
    (Original post by dass06)

    Hadn't even thought about it but hope they will all like wine as I plan on taking some with me to break the nice....I love wine
    (Original post by Bubblebee)
    Just wine? I was gonna take half of Threashers with me!
    (Original post by stargalaxy)
    Oh, crap. That's really reminded me of a big issue. It was my mum who once told me "that's the trouble with first impressions - you only get to make one". With that in mind, I'm just even more worried.
    feel free to now add what you all think

    Ah ok!

    I was lucky, I was one of the first there so had time to unpack my stuff and get rid of the parents! A few of my flatmates were in the kitchen so I just strolled in, said hello and introduced myself and then we just sat and chatted! I brought choc brownies with me too, which went down well .

    if your forgetting names - the magic word "mate" comes in handy

    as in: "so what subject you donig mate" and "you wanna cup of tea mate?"

    for women you can use "hun" or "love"

    Don't be scared to fart infront of them...if you're living with them for a year you might as well get the first awkward fart out of the way so shake hands and drop one...then in future it won't be so bad....you could even have competitions and get to know each others smell so you can identify the culprit when you all have a night in watching a DVD.

    It's natural and the sooner people accept that the less embarrassing it will become. Besides you can't expect to go the whole year without dropping a fart in front of your flatmates. Sooner or later they will crack on why you go to your room at random intervals every time you watch a DVD.

    I'm only covering an important issue which affects all of us in student accomodation. :rolleyes:

    Why not? :confused:

    Farting is farting..it's natural...everyone does it, there's nothing disgusting about it. What's the point in being secretive about it.

    You miss my point, don't do it in their faces but don't go out of your way not to fart if you have to then fart.

    Gema you need to relax. People who get bothered over farting are too uptight. Relax and let nature take its course. :cool:

    There aren't many people who like it but I just don't see a point in being embarrassed to do it...everyone does it so what's the point?
