    Also, I need to wake up at 7:30 to go to the gym before lectures, although how much I will actually be able to do after the last couple of days is questionable. :o:

    My supervision is Thursday not Tuesday, which means I don't have to write an essay tonight

    Last time I went into Pembroke gym was when I collapsed and missed two weeks of term. I didn't actually do any exercise.

    I'm going to bed. I've done all I can for now and I need sleep more than I need this essay. Goodnight all.

    One of the guys on my floor apparently doesn't know how to use the toilet brush :mad: ... I left a note on the toilet last term complaining about that, which solved the problem for a few weeks (seems he was embarrassed enough to reconsider), but it's like he has forgotten about it over the Christmas holidays...

    9 people, 2 toilets (en-suite floor, but we just have showers in our rooms, no toilets).
    You really should be able to expect people to be more hygienic than that ...

    I doubt its unhygeinic in a significant sense, but its inconsiderate.
    What annoys me is that we've overheard one of my housemates telling her visitors that she doesn't ever bother washing her dishes because the bedder always does it for her. This is annoying because our bedder doesn't ever do the dishes. I do :dry:

    aww that's so rubbish, remember that any exercise is good exercise though, don't push yourself too much!

    Craggy or someone can probs answer this question/s

    1) what do you do when you get a stitch in your side? Sometimes, I'm fine, sometimes just 20 minutes of hard grind on the xtrainer gets me in pain. I try to push through it but often I need to stop for ages which is lame. Is there a stretch/something you can do to get rid of it fast?

    :eek:
    Now that is incredibly annoying! Maybe if you'd stop washing her dishes, she'd ask the bedder about it and therefore get into a really awkward situation ?

    minimo, if you're getting stitches you need to practice breathing correctly. I've heard that in through your nose and out with your mouth is better for some reason, but I think the main idea is just breathing slowly and deeply. As in take as much as you can in and then slowly release. Also don't gulp down a huge amount of water at one time because it *will* give you a stitch if you do anything active straight afterwards. Drink steadily all the time in a few sips at a time.

    I'm trying to do this now, but it gets really annoying because she doesn't notice. Meanwhile the accumulated mess irritates me cos it gets in the way. I should try.

    I've always found that breathing deeply and regularly helped, I thought it was just about making sure you had enough oxygen to supply your gut.

    I've given up I'm putting scary scary bar extension pictures on Facebook and then going to bed. My essay won't be done in time for my supervision, I guess I'll just have to tell him what I was going to write in it.

    Craggy - why do I seem like the kind of person who'd never stay in one place? I actually spent 12 hours in the library today, madness! Although you're probably right, I do tend to flit between people's rooms the rest of the time. Just wondered where you got that impression from! And thanks for the cake and the offer of visiting, much appreciated
