    What I found particularly scary was that at York, English students only get 4 taught hours a week (compared to about four a day for some subjects). I reckon wherever I go I will sit in on lectures of other subjects just for fun. And since English is so interdisciplinary, they will be useful too!

    Hmm must be off to dig up part of the lawn...
    Hmm, I'm supposed to be packing. I'm going to get shouted at, I can feel it.

    bit difficult to avoid cam students in cam, isn't it? we probably see apu students around, not knowing they are apu students...

    talking about apu, they are quite a convenient excuse to use (apologies to apu students here) when caught doing illegal things like riding a bicycle through clare old courts on the way home... just say you're apu, and the porters look flabbergasted and give you a stare, but don't do anything.

    There's one to use when you get caught riding Jesus Horse. "Sorry Mister! I'm from APU!"

    You did what??? I so didn't hear that :eek: Bad Kwok! That's gotta be sacrilege or something :mad:

    Yeah, but Baz and Helenia have graciously agreed to adopt Ben, haven't you heard?

    Don't tell them.
    You're not going to get away that easily! I don't think Ben wants me as his mother, and I certainly don't want to be responsible for him!

    Ben, as for me, Baz and the make up sex, you'd be horrified to know it hasn't happened, and isn't likely to

    Everytime I mention it, people look at me in shock horror or say oh dear!
    don't worry, i've been there a year and i still get that reaction, even from people who aren't at cambridge!

    the stereotypes about christ's are really, really unfair - the bar is open until 11pm, and while it does shut for the 3 week exam period in may/june we are right next to a whole street of pubs so it's not as if you can't go out if you don't want to!

    i was freaked out by the suicide watch thing too as exam term approached but apart from a lot of rumours it never materialised. in truth, christ's is a really friendly place where, believe it or not, people have fun! not having been to another college i can't say whether we have more workaholics than other places but the vast majority of people i know there go out etc just as much as people i know from other colleges. any college is only as much of a pressure cooker as you make it. the only time i've EVER been in the library at night (on an emergency book-hunt for a last minute essay - everyone's done THAT), there wasn't anyone else in there.

    i wish people would stop with the stereotypes about christ's - i could just as easily do the same thing for a number of other colleges but i'm sure that that would be just as unfair & misguided!

    oops, this turned into a bit of a rant. didn't mean for it to sound that way! i know the impression everyone has of christ's, i felt the same before i went there (i was pooled) but it really isn't the way it might seem.
