The thing is is that the things that are really annoying about Durham are the best things about it!!! For example....
The hills ----> Good exercise
The cost ----> In my opinion I get good damn value. I know people complain, but if anyone's read my posts about college life, then you know I LOVE college and after seeing accomodation at other Universities (whether catered or not) I know I have some of the best!! It's awesome. Plus it's in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Fact
The locals ----> Get a bit of culture into you! Not everyone in England are southern fairies....although some of the Durhamers will beat you up, many will teach you how to hold a door open for someone else, how to say please and thank you, if you're driving a car they'll teach you how to be a courteous driver and let people out, us Northerners are notoriously friendly. And yeah you'll get some idiots, but the majority of people in Durham (whether it be cleaners, porters, kitchen staff, shop workers, etc.) are awesome!
You can't have a car ----> Boo bloody hoo! Durham is TEEEEENY you don't need a car, learn to walk and lose some weight you fatty.
It's "cold" ----> Yeah it might get cold, but it gets a lot less rain than much of the country. I'd rather be cold than wet! Plus Durham is gorgeous in the snow, as everyone will tell you
Erm, can't think of much more lol. Yeah there are bad things about Durham, but if you're going to be negative you can find bad things about everywhere! If you be positive about these things you'll realise that they're not all that bad
