    Well there's a week of college left for them until half term so we'll probably see more of them after half term.

    Speaking of missing people, have you noticed that there're less and less people this term. The canteen in Beaumont is not as full and I can now find a computer very easily in the library even during peak times. Strange :holmes:
    Yeah, it seems way, way quieter than even the same time last year. I never would have dreamed of getting a computer then but there are always some free nowadays. Campus just seems really quiet generally, I can't comment on the O2 but I'd bet it's the same there.

    Beaumont Food is a particularly harsh form of torture. Do they still have the penile sausages and shrivelled chips on Saturdays? I can't believe I paid for that stuff!

    I do, and I took a walk when I was getting breakfast but I'm not a big fan of snow.

    The skyplayer would have been just fine for me in this weather.

    Just got a ****ing 67 on my piss easy linguistics module. If that's what I get in something I am good at then I am probably on track for a 52 in English.

    I don't know why I bother, I never get a first on anything and now I can barely manage to keep up a 2:1 even though I live in the library and spend weeks researching my essays. Most people I know write theirs overnight and seem to do better. I don't know what I'm doing wrong but most of the time I wonder why I bother.

    I can relate to this, I spend weeks revising for exams and I always ****ty grades while my friend who says he struggle and says he didn't much work gets higher (still low I admit but it's more that me) I do a fecking foundation year, who knows how worse I'll do when I get down to real work (It'll probably be so low that'll drop out)

    The student's are alright (I'm glad there seem to be less of them now). Not sure what you mean by pay but if you mean the food is worth the money I'm paying then no, I always resist going to by a pizza or something because I knew it ruined by budget last term.

    oooh sorry, I meant is it worth the pay to work there? because I could do something like that next year or something

    lol only if you really need money. Students are nice when they're asking for food but when they're finished and dispose of the rubbish and leftovers, it ain't pretty :no:

    ...and guess who has to clean it up?

    I do sort of know how you feel. Do you go to your tutors and ask them what you could do better and how to improve? When ever I've done it it's always been of some use!

    Good for you!

    I tried to pos rep it but it said 'Please rate some other members first'.

    In other news, I just had to walk into the library to hand a book in to avoid a £3 fine tomorrow. Damn short-loan and my short-term memory as I had gone to renew in the library but ended up just looking for other books instead!
