    Hey guys,

    John here. I will be going to Derby for Computer Science in the fall.

    I'm Canadian, I play the ukulele, I like C.S. Lewis and George MacDonald and am generally one hoopy frood.

    Also, love the Game of Thrones novels. Never saw the series, though.

    Anybody planning on joining any of the societies?
    Hey that sounds awesome not gonna lie, do you know what accommodation your in yet?

    Thanks! I'm actually just planning on renting a place close to the university. I might stop by and meet people at the accomodations, but I just don't know how I'd deal with the first guy who set fire to his toast at 4 in the morning after a night out and had us all out in a fire alarm.

    If I'm wearing smiley face boxers and standing in the snow, I'm gonna be wondering why I didn't just get my own place.

    Oh, well it's like computers, but it's all sciencey. That way I can do my work placement at Disney World.

    I'm going to say it's so I can spend my nights on the beach, but it's really so I can get my nerd on at Harry Potter world.

    THATS WHY IM NOT STAYING IN HALLS EITHER, I just thought if I was stuck with weirdos for a year I would hate myself for paying so much to stay there. Bit worried about meeting people though because it's so much easier at halls😂

    Every hall has so many people you're guaranteed to have the guy who stands way too close, the girl who gets drunk and loudly yells at her boyfriend at two in the morning, the guy who doesn't bathe and the person who never speaks to anybody, wears all leather and who you never see during the day.

    And if you don't see any weirdos in the hall, then it means you're the weirdo.

    I plan on making friends with all the weirdos. Maybe do a Karaoke night.
