    Hello

    I just thought I would make a post for people to 'rant' or 'vent' out their worries about university - both the subject AND the social side of things.

    Is there anything in particular that you're worried about?

    Ah bless As long as you can cook the basics, its okay. Just focus on pasta! :nyan: just make sure that you don't do what my brother did and put it straight in the sauce rather than boiling it first :laugh: :rofl:

    I can literally cook the bear basics but after a while I'm gonna get sick of that. Also another foreseeable problem is budgeting.... might need to have like a part time job on the weekend to help me out with that.

    When I started, I was worried that there would be no one looking to buy any dirt. Didn't need to worry doe; half Qs were getting shot across blocks.

    Some of them were asking about brown. Are they clowns? This ain't bloody London mate.

    Oh yes my parents have told me that my first 'job' is to get a job - try making spreadsheets... my friend does that and she said it has helped her quite a bit
