Law, hmmm i wanted to do that first, but desided against it and chose Archeaology
I wanted to do allsorts first, but picked law caus it sounded good. but the more i get into it, the more i get to argue, which is always good. Especially when its about important things.

i know it is lol, well where northeners we invade anything we can get out grubby little hands on, its in our DNA, the strand which says INVASION, hence why boro n geordie fans kick hell out of other football fans at footy games, its in our blood

what put me off it was the fact i didnt want to be stuck behind a desk all my life i want to travel and see the world, and do something constructive

you've got a point there like. but if it's a nice mahoganny (sp?) desk with a large expense account next to it, i can deal with desks. Plus! I like chatting to living clients, not dead ones!

i was supposed to go to st marys last year but I hated the open day so i backed out at the last minute and took a gap year and reapplied to hildbede (st marys had been my insurance offer and chosen in a bit of a rush). As i don't have a level results to worry about i'm still feeling quite chilled. Actually i'll be glad to get to uni as I am so bored at home. I just returned from three months travelling and am now pottering about the house, occassionally helping my dad (he works from home)-not exactly riveting!

isn't st mary's going co-ed? it was the all girls thing that put me off. I like being in a male dominated environment and thought I would feel rather suffocated at st marys. Spent my gap year working for a builder's firm and was the only girl in an office of about 50 men which i really enjoyed.

There will be men on your course at any rate, and theres always Klute to pick one up!

i made them lots of cakes to keep them well fed and reorganised their filing system. they were all fairly old geezers (the youngest was 21 but the majority were in their thirties to sixties)...the first time i went on a site visit one of the bricklayers wolfwhistled at me and yelled out 'what's your name darling' he didn't notice my boss right behind me who went beserk at him and yelled back that i was miss ambrose-smith to him! they were all fairly protective which was quite sweet

Can you be smart and scruffy? I seem to manage that fairly well.

Although what you will pick up in Klute... who knows! :eek:
