    Tom, good to hear from you, buddy!

    I know what you mean. I signed up at Aston yesterday, and the two main thoughts were the "Where is the Union bar?", and trying hard to keep my eyes off a girl in my class whilst listening to some geeks droan about the British Computer Society! [face_whistling]

    So, what is your residency halls like?

    they are in old victorian converted houses. they woke us all up this morning for a fire drill at 5 o clock! and none of us got in till 3 from last nights activities. also on another note I have had 3 snogs in the past week to keep you all upto date with my love life lol. and the one of the girls is staying in my room tonight but I'm going to make her sleep on the floor! lmao

    Phill I had my audition (i presume you mean doctor who one) on thursday before I came here (22nd) and it went really well they said give them two weeks to get back to me so hopefully all should work out for me.

    Ive just been to the freshers fair where people are trying to get you to join societies and things like that but all us students just go for the freebies!

    And lil dave Im doing performing arts for the tenth time.....are you sure you werent a goldfish in a previous life?! :p

    and Joe in the words of C-3P0 "I don't like you either!":p

    Hey tom :)

    So student life is working out for you huh? glad to hear it :cool: Got internet in my room now YAAAY! :D

    My uni experience is going well except last night where some drunken students, all blokes, from the floor below managed to gain access to our flat, (how, were still trying to work it out) knocking, banging and crashing trying to kick our room doors in. Shouting and screaming and messing around in our kitchen and communal area. It was the first time since being here that I was actually scared and frightened. I was shaking and they were in there for at least 2 hours. Obviously neither me of the other 4 girls were going to leave our rooms cos it wasnt safe (we all bolted our doors locked) to but my flatmate caroline finally plucked up courage to yell at them and tell them to leave. Were going to get the warden and maintance people to check the locks and if nessesary get them changed. I also saw someone breaking into a car coming back from the union. So much for the area being student safe :( [face_worried]

    Yeah Verity they have :) One lad on the same floor as them had been getting on with us and being a good mate he reported them to the wardens. they dunno he did it though. Been sleeping easier now, but today my building was woken up at 8:00 for a fire drill. Now the alarm sounds like a mix of a regular fire alarm, loud bells, and a really loud air raid siren. :eek: It was so loud. i was in shorts and t-shirt and its quite cold in middlesbrough this morning (when is it never cold up north). We all went outside, the later people coming out got wrong (including the before metioned idiots yay!) The groundskeeper then laughed at all the half asleep students and shut the alarm down, saying "well at least you wont be late for your first lectures" but my first lecture isnt until 4 this afternoon and I finish at 6! Which is both good and bad. Then im straight to my surf club social meet. So im guessing its going to be an eventful day :p
