    Yeah but just make sure if you have had a bit to drink, and you get chatting to a bloke, that he is actually a student and not a lecturer!!! Just how embarrasing would it be to get off with someone and find the next morning that he will be your lecturer for the next year!!! Thats just not cool!!!
    hehe, someone i know has just got engaged to her law lecturer at cambridge. she's just graduated and they spent most of her time at uni living together!

    Unfortunately I have to wait a another year for my freshers (where ever I end up going) but I figure I can recreate the scene at a random local club aroun October time...

    PS - I too am a great dancer when heavily drunk (great does mean funny, yes??) !!!!
    Of course it doesn't mean funny! I'm truly fabulous at dancing when drunk- ok so sometimes any photos taken may look really dodgy, but only because the lighting is bad

    i can't stand red bull. i dunno what i'm gonna do in my student years!
    I used to like it, but only for a few hours...then i was ill for 2 days. You have 2 solutions- either drink vodka straight or with coke/ orange.

    I'm really good at pool when I'm drunk, that is if I don't fall over the pool table. Thats really happened to often for words. I'm totally crap at it when sober and it's costing me to much to try and learn. Maybe I should just by a pool table, though it would have to live in the garden cause there's no room in the house. Maybe I could set up a tent around it. Hmm, this sounds like the makings of a plan.

    It is a well good game, though playing it whilst pissed is kinda hard, though very funny to watch. (unless it's your table whose felt top has been torn by some1 drunk)

    My local O'Neills has a giant Jenga set- i have basically spent all summer getting so good at it. It's just fabulous to play when drunk, because you think you're really steady + then suddenly it crashes + you gte such a shock.

    That definitely sounds kinda different. I mean a pool table or table football maybe, but a giant Jenga, that's new to me.

    it's so great- they have pool as well, but it's jus not as good. The great thing about Jenga is that loads of people can play as well, wheras pool can get a bit boring if you're watching 2 of your mates play. I can't go to any other pub now- they're just not as good. It's also very amusing (when under the influence) to write rude words with the blocks or build a wall around you.

    Yeah that is a problem with pool, as even if you play doules, it often takes ages, and there's almost always an enormous que of people waiting to use the table and watching you. Whenever people watch me play, I always play incredibly crap, and end up loosing, which is embarassing, to say the least.

    that's another reason why jenga is so great- it doesn't matter if you lose because it's always hard. You sometimes get a cheer when it goes, but people tend not to be to critical about technique (i do have one friend who has never won tho + last time resorted to kicking it on the other person's go- very bad play!).

    *louisa's bid to get Giant Jenga into every pub*

    I'm a bit of a mad socialiser ( a fan of "networking"). I used to be shy, but the way to do it is to approach a guy when he's on his own. he'll be happy to talk and so will you, and you'll feel less self-conscious when you're just talking to a single person. do this on your first day, preferably the first few hours whilst you're there. once you're happy with taht, meet some people he's met, and introduce him to some of the girls you would have inevitibly have met. you'll start forming a group, then diversify.

    lol!! thats hilarious. I don't have any problems talking to girls generally, but most of the ones I know are airheads so they aren't really worth talking to. I can't wait to get to university and meet some decent classy lasses. And if I dare say it, LIKE MATHS!

    I used to be and still am a really shy gal. Trying not to sound like a weirdo, but, making friends for me is not the easiest thing in the world. I've been in an all-girl secondary schooland the last time I spoke to a guy was when I was 11, which is pretty sad, given that I'm 18 now! But.... on my university open day, I was looking around and saw that everyone was kinda staring at their feet not looking at their neighbour, and not a single person was talking. At once the thought occured to me - I'm not alone! Loads of people are shy and scared at first! That was such a huge relief, that all of a sudden I decided I wasn't gonna be another person who stares that their feet. I looked around realised there were a lot of friendly looking people about - (and for the first time I noticed how fit some of the guys were!). As we were shown around the uni, I guess people looked at me and saw someone who wasnt looking at their feet, and was therefore open to conversation. I was approached by 3 guys! Amazingly, not one girl approached! so from my experience I saw that guys are really friendly and none of the 3 spoke of sex or football! Hope this gives you some hope

    hiya,
    this is kinda of a silly problem i have. basically, i'm 18 and i'm about to go to uni in Septemeber. Since i've been 11 i've been at an all girls school and so all of my good friends happen to be girls. Its not that i'm really shy or anything (and i'm really not! i'm actually really popular!) but i just find it really difficult to talk to boys. I'm just worried that i'll clam up when i go to uni. Also, the few boys that i do know are all complete arses and talk of nothing other than football and sex - both of which are topics i find a bit difficult to talk about at length!
    anyway, i just need some advice on how to not be nervous, especially if they're good looking.

    Ugh, how embarrassing!
    just get UR baps oot darling. U will be surprised how many close male friends U will make using this simple but effective approach.
