i think i'm really gonna get on with jacob. I've been avoiding having anti-religion arguements with people because it's not a good way to make friends. But Jacob doesn't care about any of that stuff.....which is cool...hence I'll be his friend!

I'm kind tired right now. But I am determined to finish the cheap red wine I bought from Sainsbury's this afternoon (with the knowledge that I don't have an opener) with some friends while watching some hedious film.

I don't really like it here and I haven't made any friends
Please don't get worried about the friendship thing; it's too early to be worried. I haven't made any proper friends yet either, though there is this group of girls that I seem to keep bumping into and have gone along to a few things with. However, at this stage, as someone else said, it is more aquaintances than friends. I've noticed that upon closer observation, a lot of the 'friendship groups' which seem to have formed at my college are actually very much subject based and composed of people who have been thrown together through their academic interests and supervisions, signing up for practicals etc. So relax and be patient, sign up for lots of societies, and you'll soon feel at home here

You don't meet "proper hardcore friendship for life" friends via binge drinking 3 legged pub crawl nights where both you and your partner spend rediculous amount of money to look silly. I'm determined to make this one girl that I went to six-form with but never spoke to one of my best friends during the 3 years of study at Cambridge. Whether She'll be a potential for girlfriends is a different matter. But good friendship take time. It's too early to think about it yet.

About 20 mins walk from Grange Road (however since you walk uber fast probably around 10 in your case!)

I'm such a lightweight now, I haven't drunk in ages, this is great - it's sooo cheap. Apologies to Lex, I was in the Castle at last orders - but didn't see you.

I think he's reiterating people's reassurance that friendships aren't instantaneous and suggesting that someone he ignored at sixth form he really fancies, but isn't going to go after -- just be 'friends'.

Am I even vaguely close?

I think he missed a comma that makes it more sensible:

" I'm determined to make this one girl that I went to six-form with but never spoke to, one of my best friends during the 3 years of study at Cambridge."

That makes more sense to me, it's future tense because it's intentional.

Cheers Alaric. That is a lot clearer now thanks. Sound advice on his part too, even if he does want to go medieval on my ass...

yes, quite, or something.

I'm now going to Caius, not Girton, sorry Pol, you'll have to wait for tomorrow to meet me. I'm too drunk for first impressions anyway!

Sleep well everyone!
