    For the guys that wanted to see me in the newspaper:



    The box on the top right corner reads:

    "Scaryhair (main picture) is jumping for joy after getting one step closer to her dream of being a doctor. The X College students celebrated getting straight As in A level Biology, Chemistry, Maths and French.
    But Scaryhair had to endure considerable pain to achieve those grades. 'I had written so many revision notes that I hurt my wrist' said Scaryhair, of A Road, A Town. 'I had to wear a splint during the exams and couldn't write as well as I normally would'.
    She will be going on to study medicine at Newcastle University.
    'I have wanted to do it for a long time' she said. 'There's a video of me from when I was little wearing a stethoscope and going round telling people what was wrong with them'."

    Did anyone else read the Vodafone flyer that came with the UCAS letter? I'm seriously tempted to go for the sim only option (600 mins, unlimited texts, and free vodafone to vodafone calls, all for £15), it sounds freaking amazing!

    Can't see myself ever running out with that. :p:
