self-catered/catered? watch


    I think it really depends on how well you cook and how prepared you are to cook a meal no matter how tired. Personally I just want to be able to eat anything the moment I get back, rather than having to slave over the stove.

    you have a very wierd sense of fun!
    mxox was saying that they were worried that self-catered wouldn't be as sociable - i think eating together is one of the most sociable things you can do, and it is fun and satisying to prepaer and eat somethign together! i'm not the greatest cook in teh world but i expect to learn (pretty damn fast!) when i go to uni, and as we all have to eat it's something you have in common with everybody!

    also, i'd prefer to spend time making something to eat when i was tired rather than having to be somewhere at a certain time. at my friend's catered halls, dinner was 5.30-7.30. if i was going out to a sports club at 6 then i would want to eat before 5, and then want something more substantial afterwards...which wouldn't be possible. i'd have to make it myself anyway, so i think it's more sensible to live in self catered and always prepare it (apart from when i'm feeling lazy and the chippy is so close) than pay for meals i'm not going to eat.
