    Don't be nervous, every other undergrad is going to be like you. Embrace the uncertainty!

    Don't be nervous? easier said than done..... it just feels quite odd that i'll be at an institution away from parenthood with full responsibilties and i can't even COOK

    Where are you going? I'm sure you'll be fine. Everyone will be thinking exactly the same when they arrive, so you're not going to be alone.

    Shhh, don't remind me I can't cook EITHER!

    At least there are canteens and microwavable meals. I'm sure I can rope someone into cooking for me...

    Nothing's happen to me yet despite me being careless... Fingers crossed I won't lose my keys or my laptop or do something equally as dopey.

    No the first one you wrote Subtlety would be nicer, try "I think your answer may be incorrect, I'd check it if I were you".
