    I'm sure you'll be fine. You're pretty eloquent most of the time...
    Not when trying to sell myself My instinct is to self-efface.

    And thanks :o:

    'by Downing'? So you live in the King's hostel on Tennis Court Road?

    For Craggy's sake (she's jealous) I'll keep it short. YHA is the Youth Hostel Association; after volunteering at a hostel during my gap year I'm hoping to get 2 months paid work in the lake district this summer. Whether or not it'll work out I have no idea.

    Get a blank piece of paper and jot down some bullet points of things you like about the work, and the perks. It can't be that hard to work out why you want to work there
    damm thats a good idea for a summer job :p: - twas staying at borrowdale only last weekend (honister was closed ). i might well be stealing that in the summer- that is if i have any time for gainful employment around all the other stuff that seems to be lining up

    We have four supervisions a week, plus two 5-hour practicals a week and an average of 2 lectures per day Mon-Sat. Now, no other first year can complain of having too much work :p:
    i make that 26 hours a week right?
    don't think us medics can quite touch that but i reckon last term on average i did about 22 hours contact time a week (11 lectures 8 hours practicals and 3 supervisions each week) and that doesn't include irregular extras like PfP and PBL- so you're not alone!:p:

    It is, isn't it? :p: I was at Helvellyn April of last year.If I'm really lucky this year then I'll get Ennerdale, that's where I'd like to be.

    that would be nice!- good striking distance for some nice hills for any days off!
    we took a stroll (ha ha) along haystacks to high stile on saturday- was pushing it a bit for time (got dark about twenty minutes after we got down) but there were some cracking views into ennerdale and over buttermere!:p:

    I'd love to do Haystacks again, I haven't been to that area of the Lakes in over 10 years I know the Wastwater area best, as we went there for many years and obviously Ullswater. It's surprising how much you can walk if you have a month with nothing else to be doing :p:

    When I was in Cambridge I spend a happy hallf hour in Heffers spreading out OS maps of the Lakes in front of me, working out walks. There is easily enough in Ennerdale to keep me going for a few months :p: Esp since I won't have as much time as I did in helvellyn.

    And I have now finally sent that form off :hmpf:

    My mock test thing is on Wednesday at 9am :indiff:

    Now I need to consider whether I can realistically do my plough monday stuff Plus I will probably need to leave Craggy's thing early in order to be *awake* at 9am on Wednesday

    I am screwed. I need to pack tomorrow, I'm going into London on Saturday, I'm going into Cambridge on Sunday, Monday is Plough Monday. That doesn't leave a massive amount of time to revise.

    *gets out books*

    I know how you feel. :hugs: I've stayed up until 3 AM the last few nights to get my stats project done (finally finished last night! ), and now I have an economic history essay to do, as well as packing, before going up on Saturday. Oh, and macro revision for a test on Monday. Serves me right for doing virtually no work in the last 5 weeks. :p:

    We should plan some kind of TSR meet for this term. I think setting a random date well in advance and telling people to 'be there' is the way to.

    If anyone wants any info on HPS I'm sure I'll be able to provide it. They have many of the most enigmatic lecturers in the uni though, so although I dislike HPS as a subject, I really enjoyed the lectures.

    If anyone complains about having more work than me this term I will probably hunt them down and hit them, if I could afford to take the time out to do so.

    All the hysterical people in the pooling thread seem to have forgotten that admissions tutors read this forum. It was the hysteria in the pooling thread and the AT's pity on them that first got me outed as being on TSR.

    I agree, trying to change the date and place to suit everyone doesn't really work. :nah:

    How so?

    On a completely unrelated topic, where in Cambridge are the good places to buy stuff for bop costumes? I still haven't been to one due to a combination of laziness and a lack of creativity.

    I've not been to one either, and by all accounts Queens' ones are supposed to be good :p:

    I dunno though. The joke shop?

    There's a costume kinda shop (which is far too expensive) up at the Grafton, well outside, not in the actual shopping centre. But its surrounded by charity shops so you can check there before having to splash out! Its good for face paint etc I spose!

    For face paint, Heffers (Arts and Graphics) on King Street was cheaper than the joke/costume shop I went in to (plus they have a lot of other potential costume material!).

    So I have heard about this mystical and awesome filesharing network on Jesus' intranet. Any other Jesuans want to enlighten me?

    Thanks for all the replies. If I can't sort something out after trying all of those places then I'll probably give up for good. :p:

    I don't think it's limited to Jesus, and I don't think we can post about it here (Nina will get angry). PM visesh, if he doesn't mind.
