    lol!

    It's sods bloody law isn't it.

    If you don't meet the requirements of your firm choice, UCAS automaticly appoints you into some kind of contract (even with out your signiture of authenticity) that you must go to your insurance. However, you can call your insurance to be released from their course and apply to Huds through clearing.

    But, if Huddersfield automaticly put you onto a backup course if you didnt reach the higher grades, things should go smoothly. But a record of this must be under your UCAS conditions on the website or letters they send out.

    Well i feel a bit pants today cause i was working til late, and then had a few too many drinks afterwards like the idiot i am.

    No, i haven't seen storthes yet, i've only been to huddersfield once before, and that was for my interview! Maybe if i ask really nicely they will agree to give me a personal tour, cause i really want to see whre i will be living for the next year before move in weekend! Can anyone tell me who has sen it whether it is actually decent and clean? (yes, i'm a clean freak)

    I've never heard anything about the oldest or youngest buying drinks first, and i've lived erm....east and west as opposed to north and south.... Usually i would say it was the duty of the richest to get involved and buy a round.

    in my opinion from what I have seen the rooms were rather clean.

    Nah I just came up with the idea of the elders buying first so by the time us youngsters have to buy our rounds, everyone should be drunk enough not to notice we didnt pay for it.

    Jay was wrong! I was actually up at 10:45 and was covered in oil by 11 thanks to dad needing a hand with the carburettor on the Mini.

    Have to go sort out an appointment at Natwest to open a student bank account sometime today. Should be canny - mams mate is the one who does all of that kind of stuff at our branch

    Jay - I saw your post in the "campaign" thread. Will probably get to start on the Wiki plan sometime today.

    Somebody say Keane gig? The local place for gigs round here is the Metro Arena in Newcastle, and I have never wanted to try and get home from that place after a gig!

    ive just got some thing through the post from ucas!

    theyve sent me a clearing letter! why the hell would i want to use clearing when ive already accepted my unconditional offer!

    electro-- i doubt strothes will give u a tour because theres no one actually there now.
    i went and was pretty impressed! its like a little town of its own way out in the country side. its really quite. they have astroturf sports thing,gym,shopping place,tanning studio,dvd rental,takeaway,lounge,gym,bar/club! the place really is huge ive never seen anything like it. and the flats are pretty nice yea! the only thing i would say is that aspley halls have nicer kitchens! the flat is as clean as u keep it really.im really looking forward to going there now
    here is there web page if you want to look at pics n stuff. u can also download a brochure on there aswell as a video.

    Sounds good to me

    Summat that may or may not interest you Jay - BBC Link saying that GNER have lost their battle against the other rail company heading from our way to York, Leeds and Brighouse (for Huddersfield). More trains, more competition, hopefully lower costs

    Wow, that presentation was very swish! It does actually look really nice doesn't it?! Except for the curtains in the rooms, they will give me panic attacks haha. Thanks for the link!

    Jayjas, i know what you mean about it being like a little town, it does look like one. Damn it i wish that i got myself sorted and went on a tour of the place before! It just seemed like a waste of time driving down for a tour that lasted a couple of hours. Oh well, i'll just have to wait til moving weekend then.

    electrofantastic-- my tour of strothes was included in my open day at the university. I think we spent longer on the bus getting to strothes then we actually did at the place lol. i think we were only there half hour max. but it was pretty good.

    Transpennine go to Durham too, but when I went for the first open day I realised I cant sit on a train for two hours straight. Next one I got a GNER to York, Transpennine to Hudds, Transpennine back to York then Virgin to Durham (them Virgin trains are swish like!). With that Grand Central company it gives me the choice of heading to Hartlepool and nicking a lift off mam on her way home from work

    On moving day I am definately jumping in the car with mam/dad. Astra estate with roofbox, or we can borrow a Mitsu truck or Merc van if required

    Going to get a huge bergen for carrying stuff home like. Easier to hoy that on me back than drag a holdall or case up the hill to the station in Hudds and down the hill at Durham.

    Carly - no worries, look at the prices in the back, they are cheaper than the ones they have on the website lol.

    I am sure you will :p:

    I just can't wait to get away from Huntingdon. Put it this way it was in the crap town books has nothing to do here at all apart from sodding football pitches. Last time I counted there was about 8 of them. Who the hell needs 8 full sized football pitches...

    For the moving stuff, luckily I have a type 2 camper, stacks of room. On the note of taking stuff, I was in woolworths the other day and they had a decent sized George Foreman for £20. I'll probably grab one when I get back from scotland.
