    I definitely think I will! I've been enjoying the Summer Bucket List so much that I don't want to let blogging go.

    Royal Holloway. I'm super nervous about Freshers, so this might be a nice way to take the edge off a little.

    Royal Holloway looks and sounds lovely! Has a great community feel from what I heard :heart:

    Yes, absolutely, the whole point of the blogs is that you share the whole experience and members can come in and support - also learn a whole lot about your experience

    Just start up a new thread in this forum. That will be your freshers blog. Post regularly and you'll have a great chance of the free pizza.

    I'm gonna defer to Danny Dorito here; she's the one who's going to be sorting all the pizza goodness...

    I know, pizza is life. The week we posted this I ended up eating 3 pizzas in a week :drool:. Who is the pizza provider is still to be decided. Got a particular place that you think would be good? (has to deliver)

    I'm having pizza tonight to celebrate results! I'm going to be at York uni and I looked on Dominos and Papa Johns with the postcode for the uni but neither said they delivered :shock: I think they would but they're seriously missing out if they don't... I personally think that dominos is a nicer pizza but papa johns does a nicer garlic bread so I'm totally torn!

    I hate pizza so please exclude me from that but I'm very up for this!

    Wanted to document my experience in Paris somewhere, seems like I've found a good place to do it!

    Thank you York is my dream uni (literally, I have been dreaming about it for months now) and I can't wait to go, especially since my best friend is coming with me!

    I'm boring in that I like plain foods so just a standard margherita for me but I'm cheap on a night out at a restaurant I guess.

    And yeah I've started a blog. In fact, I think She-Ra said I was the first one which is new for me!

    I'll ask my brother what takeaways he recommends at York! He was in Vanbrugh -- what about you?
