    oooh a new computer :teeth: What one?

    I haven't actually seen the Bourne films as I've never got around to them and my friend keeps telling me to watch it and I always forget :p:
    Macbook Pro. :awesome: I haven't had a new computer for about 6 years, and this is just so quick and perfect. I love it.

    They are an amazing trilogy, no weak links at all. If you've seen Casino Royale, that was heavily influenced by Bourne.

    I hope it doesn't bore me. I'll be stuck with them for the next five years.
    Different strokes for different folks, and all that. Some people will undoubtedly love the single focus and camaraderie that will come with it. Personally, it wouldn't be right for me, but I'm sure you'll love it.

    Petrified! I revised like 10/12 hours a day sometimes for my A2 exams so getting used to the university format and the higher amount of information required may just kill me.
    Information overload can be an issue. People feel the need to sit in the library and try and memorise the entire collection. I've found it useful to use the crash course series of books to get the basics and then selectively build on that.

    It's do-able and even enjoyable, honestly

    By the way, what screen size did you go for when purchasing your MacBook Pro?
    I'm getting one next week but I'm not too sure whether to settle for 13", 15" or dare I say, 17"? :dontknow:

    Yeah, I really enjoyed Funny People (mostly). It was a really good comedy in places (which it should be, carrying the official stamp of Apatow), and Sandler was just brilliant in his role, considering he's made a living out of the same one-dimensional character all of his life. But the ending spoiled it for me. It just went typically American, valuing story over characters with ridiculously hyped things like airport chases and fights. No ******* need. But if there was an Oscar for best actor for most of a film, Sandler definitely would deserve a nomination.

    Scarface is a wondrous film, and ever minute is a joy to watch, more like. :p: I rate it above The Godfather, personally, it's just immense.

    I think I might record one so I can watch the other. I'll be watching United 93 tonight probably, it's a film I've wanted to watch for a very long time as it's got both a gripping story and critical acclaim, and it's directed by Greengrass who is awesome.
    Fair enough. I suppose those sort of endings are kinda cliched but it sometimes works :p: If it is a particularly good film throughout though it would ruin it so I can see why you would say it could be described as a mostly good film :yep: I haven't seen it, and I'm not sure I will at the cinema as people I know didn't seem to express any interest in it :p: (These are people I go see films with :awesome:)

    Scarface is pretty good from what I remember but it's just really long...well too long to watch at 1am when you are half asleep :p:

    Sounds like a good plan! Best of both worlds :awesome: When is United 93 on? I might watch it if I remember/am not too tired to follow a film :p:

    Cool :awesome: I considered a macbook but the fact that I haven't a clue how to use one makes it silly to spend so much money on it, especially since there was no guarantee that I would like it.. I do love my new laptop though :p: (I had a buggy phase then I found out that I installed a firewall that caused all those problems )

    hmm I may have to watch those films now when I get around to it since you've also recommended it :awesome: I have seen Casino Royale and have it on dvd but don't really recall what happens as I haven't see in it a very long time.. That reminds me Quantum of Solace was a big let down for me :erm:

    Also to add about the feeling intimidated about other people at uni being too intelligent, I feel the same way, I have a strong feeling I'll be among the lower end of the academic level :emo:

    15" would be a good size I believe. My laptop is 15.6" widescreen I think and it's already quite bit if you want to carry it around.... If it is mainly going to be desk bound why not splash out for a bigger screen? :p:

    I especially like it when I see or hear people acting all high and mighty because they've blindly wanted to do medicine since they were five and never had any doubts, whereas others have had to question whether it was right for them. I wanted to be a ******* tree when I was five. That doesn't make you committed, it makes you stupid.

    My worries are quite huge at the minute. Mostly I'd say I was worried about not fitting in, being too common for everyone there, not finding any real friends, and everyone being copiously smarter than me.
    In am worried at the opposite end as coming across as a posh ****
