Where do you go in bristol,
Im 18, supposed to be in the year below, but I'm a first year in uni now.
I smoke, anything really.
Where do you go for fun, and i don't mean freshers kind of fun, i mean like locals fun.
Also how realistic is Skins, I'm a Nigerian yeah, i know a lot about the american west coast culture and lower east coast culture(somewhat) But I'm here (in bristol) cause lets face is, the Uk educational system rocks. Help anyone?

FYI- I don't think skins is realistic really after the first two seasons

Lol Skins is not realistic, and American urban culture is almost completely irrelevant. But Bristol has long been one of the most happening cities in the country. The vibrant music scene and urban activist culture seem to be a palpable undercurrent. Plus people are friendly, unlike Londoners. To really experience Bristol you certainly do have to become a local (freshers' fun is ****, I agree) and that's far more rewarding in Bristol than in some of Britain's more identikit cities.

I figured, lol i said the stuff about the american urban culture to show how clueless i am here.
Any advice for someone like me who clearly would like to have some actual fun like the locals do?

Don't be silly, I've been here two years now, was in kent for a while, which was pretty lame. Just asking to see if bristol was remotely close to how its shown in the first two seasons which seemed a bit realistic.
Didn't come here cause i watched a show
