nah, you cant leave until you leave...as in you have to stay for the next 3 weeks. Although if the banaboo comes in before then, and it involves significant changes...well then i'm quitting too!

If you're a fresher and arriving by the midnight train!?

Me neither. I am boring. And sooooo ruralised - I thought Cambridge had a really diverse ethnic population (amongst the students, not the townspeople) but all my friends from London thought I was insane
Never figured you as a country bumpkin! But then nowhere beats London for diversity, although lots of places have high percentages of particular ethnic groups, e.g Luton!

Of course I'm a country bumpkin! Not quite the tractor-driving, straw-chewing farmer girl type, but I'm definitely a rural town person rather than city (i.e. I think Cambridge is big!). For example, at my school, we had ONE black girl. My school was small (only 350 students) but at others it was similar. I think there were two British-born kids of Indian origin, and really that was it. We had a lot of Chinese/Taiwanese/Hong Kong boarders who were sent over to learn English, but sadly they mostly kept themselves to themselves so apart from inspection week (where we had to "celebrate our diversity :rolleyes: ) it was very much a limited background.

I wouldn't know...haven't been in cambridge long enough yet to get an idea...but if you look at KCL, UCL and SE...they have a HUGE percentage of asians studying there.
Yes, that's true. Cambridge IS diverse, but obviously not as much as London (where as a percentage of the UK population, white brits are under-represented).

I can tell ur excited, and it's almost infectious!! I'll only get 'excited' when I realise that theres lots of packing to do... a few hours before I head there.

Woah! Cambridge....big!?! i thought I came from a relatively small town, that wasnt that diverse though its in commuting distance of London. We also had some boarders, mostly with parents in the RAF or from Hong Kong...though it was a bigger school (about 1000 pupils) and so larger friendship groups.

i think i'll only be truly excited when i think i am ready to go up. The next week is going to be important in deciding whether or not that is the case, because i plan to buy most of the stuff i need/want this week. If all goes to plan, this time next week all I will need to get is a guitar and a possibly a hair cut

I've been "excited" since the end of May Week It's been a long time coming. Willa, you will never be totally ready

I'm worried about arriving totally sleep-deprived already and then not being able to make it through term! I'm working right up till next Friday, and I'm going away next weekend to the Lake District, so I have no time to catch up on my sleep (which is very important to me )

How huge is she? Because by the time the kittens have germinated, I think you'd be able to tell.
She's pretty big for a tiny little cat, she's either very old or very young, she's still a scruffy little cat so hard to tell and she's missing teeth! Its just her tummy that's massive, it sticks out sideways, she waddles rather than walks and sits/cleans herself awkwardly. She's a loving cat, but doesn't get on that well with the dog; she growls!! She's gone quite defensive though...I'm fairly certain she's pregnant!

We have quite a few cat books, we have more cats than people in this house! I've done a bit of reading tonight and searched online for stuff and it's all looking like we're getting kittens. (my mum is not happy about it!!) Ticki, you're right it seems, they cope quite well on their own, it's only if there are complications that a vet might be needed; they clean them up, sort out goop & cords themselves, clever things! I have no idea how to do the check for how many she's expecting and have no idea how far gone she is! Poor little thing, kitten birth seems too big an ordeal for a tiny little cat!

If I'm not here when it happens, I won't be a happy chappy!!

it's really weird, but in terms of diversity, it's gonna be odd for me being in the same town as so many other asian people. i've always been the only (or one of the very few) indian kids in my school/college, and i hardly ever mix with most of the indian kids i know, either because they're too young/too old/live miles away now.


p.s 4th gem woo!! thank u aman!

personally race is a completely transparent part of the society i operate in. Coming from an extremely multicultural school, I really dont care (and in fact dont notice) racial differences. I'm much more interested in the personalities.
