    Early riser. bed at 12-1:30 , up at 3-4. Few hours work then come on here as there's no-one else online at 4 in the moring except silly americans.

    Isn't the idea that you come on here when everyone is online....so you can chat???

    Also....how can you manage with only 3-4 hours sleep?? I need minimum 7!!!!

    8 weeks terms..but the uni encourages students to come up a week early and stay behind for a week after term ends too. Essentially 10 weeks

    yeah, that is my point. There is no point me being online at 4 in the morning - people tend to come online aabout 7:30. As for having only 4 hours sleep, the secret is to have a very lethargic lifestyle.

    yea, unless you live in cam, you cant go home during term time, too much work for all! Although tbh I plan to go back to london at least a few times. My physics teacher wants me to help him take a load of kiddies to CERN, but that'll be the first weekend of term...dunno how keen cam would be about that. Then on top of that i have to keep in touch with my debating society, and we're planning a meet up once every month or two months. Then on top of that im hoping to get tickets to various things, so gonna be down in london quite a bit tbh
