    Yeah I'm from North West London, a place called Harrow. By the way, we're prob gonna be in the same class! Freaky. Oh and did you get the letter through asking you to confirm what Units you want to do in the 1st and 2nd Semester. I chose Spanish for Beginners for both options...thoht it would be a nice break from all the businessy stuff...plus I speak Italian so Spanish is piss easy.

    I'm not nervous at all...just wanna be there.

    And yeah, I think there is a free bus that takes about 10mins. The Richmond Building is only about 5 mins walk from my halls...shame you didn'y choose James Watson.
    sweet!! Harrow? I've been there a few times for shopping by underground, got some nice shops there.

    Yeh i got a letter, i picked japanese as a basic option, looking forward to it hehe i am not sure how this will fit into the timetable, probs be an evening session maybe? *shrugs*

    Oh i read that you studied at UCL before but you quit. What happened there? Isn't UCL like a top uni?

    Damn, everyones in james watson

    Hey lemonlime,

    How hard is it changing your accomodation? I been to the room i am staying in, i am on the ground floor, right next to the kitchen floor and have a view of stinging nettles in front of my window... kinda sucks, the room will be pretty damn dark.

    Nope, I am struggling by on my own using tabs taken from mxtabs.com. The only really good thing i can play is the main guitar part from seven nation army by the white stripes! I must admit i think it sounds better on the bass! :rolleyes:

    To be honest i dont know, do you wanna change to somewhere else in langstone? I say call them up and ask. After the fire they moved alot of people so they had lots of spare rooms.

    Spare rooms? :eek: where? in langstone or elsewhere? Well i dont mind where i go, i am not bothered about that, what i am bothered about is being next to the kitchen when people go in and out when the door shuts, i can most likely hear it. I have a view of stinging nettles mainly because i am on the ground floor. I'd like to move to the 1st floor or 2nd and be like between two rooms. I know i know! i am fussy

    I really dont like the white stripes!! I am listening to the libertines new album at the moment. What they played at reading was good! I like Jurassic 5, Reel big fish, saliva, drowning pool, British Sea Power, Ash. Stuff along those lines.

    Edit: oh and I like InMe.

    Hmm... call the housing department then. It did say somewhere *i think* that if u wanna move room then you might be able to in the first weeks of term.
    I say call 'em. The worst they can say is no, they might be able to swap a few rooms around. Or get really friendly with someone in ur flat and they mite swap with ya.
