I mean to me English is the difficult one I'm definitely not that much smarter :noway:
We still get weekly homeworks :cry: How are you doing an English degree that only has one bit of reading in the first 4 weeks? :eek:
I believe that Frankenstein IS my week 4 reading, I'm just a nerd :rofl:
Sorry! :laugh:

~Welcome to midnight thoughts with Barror 6(7)/9/19~
Oh look, it's almost 12AM. Join me, won't you? :moon:
I stayed up super late tonight sorting through my clothes. There is so much to go to the charity shop tomorrow! I have about 4 bin bags worth of stuff so I am going to ask around the local area to see who needs urgent donations tomorrow. Hopefully, it all goes to a place that really needs it :love:

But you are all here for the midnight ramblings! And boy, do I have one for you.

Here is how I know that my Mac will fit into my uni accommodation!
First, some backstory...
I had some money saved up at Christmas and decided to buy myself a Mac, with the intention to use it for my entire academic career, regardless of how long that might be (hopefully more than 3 years of undergrad :giggle:). The only problem is when I confirmed my room at York and had a look at it...
I realised that there is a very, very low shelf over the desk. Yippee! What a pain
So tonight I hatched an ingenious plan...

I used the crop tool to create a scale of A4 paper/ plug sockets, multiplied the number the measurement of each common appliance against the number I could fit in between the desk and the shelf. It is not an exact science, but it came to around 23/24 inches!

However, this means nothing without knowing how tall my computer is. So I pulled up some schematics of the PC on Google and found that my computer is:

Size:  51.9 KB 20.3 inches tall including the stand!

I have done it! I can get my computer into my room with only a few inches to spare. I am absolutely chuffed :crazy:

Next time on midnight ramblings, I will enjoy an ample amount of existential dread with my affectionate audience :rofl:

Goodnight (or morning) everybody!

that is a wonderful application of maths it's great you had a clothes clear out , you'll appreciate having less laundry and a tidier room and you're helping many charities out, i did that before i moved for uni but then i had a primark 10 minutes walk away when before it was an hour on the train so it didn't last that long:P

You genuinely have no idea! I was really worried about lugging up this computer for 6 hours only to have it not fit :argh:

I do not apply maths often so it was a nice change :laugh:
All of the clothes are gone to charity shops now! Both of my rooms look so much better and this is only the start of it.

Primark mens shirts/pyjamas are incredibly tempting though...

I hold the firm belief that I will be exclusively living in fleeced onesies this entire semester.
