    I liked the one about following your dreams most. :yes: Though it would be pretty scary if everyone took that as literally. :afraid:

    When I was at uni, I tended to go on spending sprees at the beginnings and ends of each term. :yes: Anywhere from £20 to £50, usually manga + the occasional DVD box set. But aside from food, MTG cards and TSR subscriptions, I didn't buy much else the rest of the time.

    I plan to keep my extra spending to a minimum so that I can save up enough for a Mac I should have roughly £600 left over this term once the accommodation fees are taken out, and I should be getting a bursary from the uni in December-ish.

    But yeah, I started here on the 13th of September with £30 to spend on food etc., and I have about £10 left

    I was cheeky and bought a pack of two chocolate eclairs for desert :giggle: My first dessert at uni I actually haven't really cooked anything yet. Made some rice last night to go with my tinned Tesco Curry (was horrible, BUT CHEAP!) and that's about it. Mostly microwave I'm surviving on tins, which is fine since it's like 38 pence a meal :giggle: I bought some tinned peaches for dessert tomorrow also.
    #
    I'm also going to make sure to only buy the small tins of beans, as there's no room in the fridge to put the remainder of a large tin after I use them. The fact that my bowls and plates are so small is REALLY helping me cut down on how much I eat. I used to eat barely anything, but had very large portions back home. Now I don't have a ******** of cereal and it's more like what a recommended portion is on the box

    First term-time lectures tomorrow, if the lecturer is actually in that is. 9:15 start, 3:15 finish with like an hour break at about 12.

    I read that as "the Queen offered" and thought you were being posh, such as "Best British tea" :mmm:

    I was all over the place. Sometimes I'd spend £50 in one go, other times I'd only buy the minimum of food. Going on retail sites late at night doomed me, my tiredness made me more prone to impulse :mmm:
