    A female CS postgrad? You will have a wide variety of men to chose from in your field!

    HaHa I already have my game developer geek man.

    I do doubt that many of the other CS PhD students will be interested in partying but thats ok as I have other people to do that with. However, it would be nice to make some new friends.

    I was sorta friends with a group of CS students for a while, but it didn't work out. They were way too geeky for me, and I'm quite geeky.

    I don't have many CS friends, I think the problem I have with alot of them is that they have nothing to say for themselves outside of the geeky stuff they are into.

    Yea I find this with PhD students in general actual. A lot of them are so damn dull. Not that I'm mr exciting or anything, but I think you need to have a laugh in life whatever you're doing. There are cool/partying phd/postgrad students though, you just have to find them..

    I met someone who works at Stealth last week I hope to be a partying postgrad (not in Notts though) in September, although I hope I can regulate it so that it doesn't interfere with work. One wicked club night or rave a month and one trip to visit my boyfriend in a different city will hopefully suffice!

    Was it someone behind a bar or someone on the marketing promo team?

    Shining a light on northampton would just reveal all the gunk - best to keep it in the dark. As you can tell, I don't like the place much. Hometown bias maybe? I'm not sure but I'm glad I'm out of there. I'm at essex at the minute. Great for raving it up in london.

    With respect to this thread, I've been to many raves, clubs, general drinking, travelling. You can do it all, just get your work done as well. Postgrad really isn't that much different from undergrad, it's just a natural progression.

    (saying all this, I think it all might change a bit for the 2nd year of my phd, which is coming up)

    Awesome Since you've worked there maybe you could help me out with something.. I'm trying to track down some sets from that weekend most notably Andy C, Rusko/Caspa, Chase and Status, etc but I can't seem to find them! GG is usually covered by Radio 1 but did they even turn up this year??? or did they decide to give it a miss due to the recession?! Cheers!

    I fully intend both to "party" and to mix with undergraduates. This may be because I'll be very young for a postgrad; and also because I did my undergrad at Cambridge where the "partying" was sorely limited. But either way, I don't want to be a GOG!!

    ditto + amen! :woo:

    as the cliche goes...work hard, play hard.

    tho i do know of some MSc postgrads who tell me that they were so bogged down with studies/workload that they never saw anything beyond their faculty library, the labs & their rooms! :eek:

    my friends consider me quite geeky too. & the way they say it is like i'm as geeky as geeky can get. then one day i went out with an Engineering guy who went on & on about integrated circuits & USBs thruout dinner. i was bored stiff...way too geeky even for me. :p:
