    well to beat the football thread before start of term will be good enough I reckon. It would have been nice to beat that damn harry potter thread, but being realistic, when we all get to cam I doubt we will post no where near as much!

    My guidance teacher's just basically told me he can't help me with my personal statement because he knows nothing about politics or Cambridge.

    errr well i'm kind of worried now, because i want everything to go to plan but i bet it wont.

    Oh I'm also in a bad mood cos I need a haircut and I hate haircuts, and will probably mean my hair in the first week looks horribly unlike what I would like to look like...and with all the pictures that will be taken of us it will just be a horrid memory!

    what?! is there no other teacher you can ask for help? ask your history/politics teacher perhaps?

    Haven't studied history since second year. I do modern studies in my own time and see a teacher a couple of minutes a week.

    My mum's going to give it to a friend of hers who is a guidance teacher (and probably a bit more in the know than mine), but even so she has no experience of a Cambridge candidate. You just don't get them up here .

    Wohoo, someone is out there! There's a bit of a ghost town feeling about this place right now.
