    Yay, neat, I didn't expect someone actually reading my post this soon.
    I think accomodation works in a different way for us erasmus...ses -or however it might be spelled-, at least when applying for it, my accomodation form was marked with a big orange "EXCHANGE" in the top, anyway I think we are given student houses in most cases, I really hope that works out for me, I've never lived with strangers before, allways lived with my parents and the year I spent working I lived by myself...

    Oh ! Espero que todo vaya bien. I'm sure it will !

    Just get involved with societies and freshers week and everything will go great ! You'll meet lots of people so, even if you don't particularly get on with your housemates, you'll have plenty of friends to hang out with. I'm sure you'll get on great with them though !

    Why did you choose Hull as your firm? It's not my firm atm but I'm e-mailing my firm and asking them to release me
    Is anyone you know also going to Hull or are you all on your lonesome? No, I know about 10 people going this year and I know about 25 people already at the uni but I'm definitely leeching on to the fellow new people

    I like your sig! Pam

    How come you cancelled Sheffield? I did the same thing, although I swapped it for Liverpool.

    Also, Malibu and Coke is a very tasty drink. But being a guy means I cannot drink it in public :ninja:

    Thankyou I like yours too (I mean the American Psycho bit, not the n00d girl, though she is fine) I LOVE The Office (US) but it's a shame it's gone downhill

    Well to be honest, I'm really happy here in Hull and there's so many reasons for me to stay, which kind of outweigh Sheffield (although I do love Sheffield and tbh, I'm worried I'll regret not going)

    Pssh, just get someone else to buy you one and pretend it's rum and coke or something manlier

    Season 6 was a let down, fingers crossed season 7 is better. I swear the only one who has remained funny is Dwight. :yep:

    Ah right fair enough, plus it means less debt! Well, maybe I will see you in September. G'luck with results, I'll post one of these intros if I don't get in my firm

    It was, Pam and Jim totally changed :/ but Dwight is always hilarious :yep:

    It does! I'm just scared of missing out on the university experience by staying at home first year cause I never applied for Hull accommodation because I live literally two minutes away from it, so I'm hoping people might take me in like their own haha. I might wait till I get my results to see what happens. I think I'd regret rejecting Sheffield and I don't think I've gotten into Sheffield anyway so we'll see

    Good luck with yours too

    It's dragged on a bit long, but the first 4 series' were absolutely amazing. Fifth was a little worse, and then series six was rather bad...

    Although Michael starting the Michael Scott Paper Company was hilarious!
