Well i knew i'd had one and then a boost for measles and rubella or somethin like at school. My doctor took a while decidin but eventually gave it me. You know it took me longer to find somewhere to lock my bike up near the doctors than to ride down there.

At my college you're forced to sign up with doctors in cam, so they dealt with things like that then.

Why was no one at Life tonight? (apart from the fact it was LBG night, which was..... interesting)
Because Life is by repute (never actually made it there myself) fairly poor. Mind you, I got to eat pizza and watch Zoolander (possibly one of the worst films I've ever seen) with the boaties, which was hardly the most fun night ever. What can I do tonight, I'm bored?

So back to the drawing board I suppose.... Not that you wont end up knowing/that I mind! You will have to join a drinking society to venture into other colleges now!
I think I need to work on my liver a little more, it's had a very easy summer and is not prepared for the onslaught that is going to be Freshers' Week. You could just randomly point and laugh at me, which would probably work

On one side thats sounds good, but on a 'less-worthy' side thats not so rosy ...even if it is for some 'random' people
Erm...it's not that you're less worthy in general, it's just that I wanna be with certain friends etc from last year. No personal offence intended!

One of the history teachers from my school (she never actually taught me but she was the one that encouraged me to do it on my own and to try for Cambridge) has just phoned me to wish me well! :eek: I'd written cards last week and I think she'd only just received hers (grr lazy little sister, lol) she seemed quite choked! She's asked if I'll go back to school next year and give a little talk to anyone else who might want to apply and also if they can email me any questions!

Everything today is making it all seem so real! I have butterflies!

Reading list: I have not made an effort in any way to read any of the books from there....they are far from mandatory, and only serve as a general introduction, something I think I can cope with not having before I turn up. It is only by coincidence that I have read a couple of those books already

Maths Workbook: My college decided that it didnt want it's students doing the maths workbook. I got a copy off it anyway off the net, and I tackled a few questions just for revision purposes. Once again, doing this will help you settle in quicker, but is by no means a requirement....it just depends how quickly you can get back into the swing of things. Personally I'm taking quite a few of my old maths textbooks, so I havent got a problem if I get stuck on a basic a-level question!

i only have to find the right number of t-shirts clothes wise (this may involve purhcasing a couple of cheap ones just to be sure).

Apart from that I only need to get this damn speaker system sorted, along with my acoustic guitar. I will buy trainers when I get there, but take my old worn out pair for now! Ooo I cant believe how close I am to being ready!

look...if any of it was "MUST READ" or "MUST DO" work, it would have been properly labelled up. But they didnt, and talking to lots of people who are already there, there really isnt any pre-term requirements when it coems to reading or maths work. Just relax for now....and you and me can stress together in a weeks time

Sorry - am getting really scared about the maths, thats all.
Am finding the maths workbook really hard.
The rest of it is fine
