That your friends leave you once you graduate.

Even if that is true, so what?

I was not so hot, academically (nearly all the people in my class but me went to Oxford and I have always wondered why).

I wanted to study French and German, but was terrible at literature. Over 80% of the degree at Oxford is literature.

My elder son, however, was excellent at literature and actually gained 100% in one of his English lit papers at AS level. His German was great, too and that is why I decided to help him get into Oxford. He was my first success.

Sounds like a plan, and a great one at that. It's always a good call to be encouraging to others.

That in some of the uni toilets the loo rool dispenser isn't strongly secured. My flatmates and I spent less money on loo roll and more on heating in our final winter. Good times.

Am I being stupid, or, how do those two things relate?
