I've just realised something that hadn't hit me beforehand, my boyfriend is at music college in greenwich in london. I KNEW i recognised the whole "opal" name, but wasnt sure where from, and now ive just realised! He lives in an opal housing village in greenwich. Its pretty awful if im honest. There's even a facebook group dedicated to telling people how rubbish it is haha. Now i know the rooms in sheffield arent bad cos people have told me so, but its made me a bit more concerned about them. My boyfriends mates doors break all the time, and dont lock properly and their fridge stopped working and no-one did anything about for 2 weeks (!!) mental. I cant believe i didnt realise that before. Ive been getting so annoyed at the lack of information on the sheffield website and the city centre accom. there is hardly anything, (same with the home from home guide) but i understand why now. It will probably increase the chance of me deciding on endcliffe.
eek, sorry about all that. Has anyone had any bad experiences with opal?
crazy, at least im not trying to figure out why i recognise it!! phew
