    Doesn't seem to be much activity in this part of the galaxy. I dun no, I have a bad feeling about this.

    Too true I'm afraid. I think I'm the only one left from the original lot. Good to have new members though!

    Where abouts is High Halden? I've not heard of it before.

    Do you Know Ashford. It's along the M20 coming up from Dover. Well High Halden is about a 5 minuite drive from Ashford. The towns in the surrounding area are Maidstone, Tonbridge, Canterbury. Where abouts are you from?

    Don't know where any of those are, sorry.
    I'm from Salisbury, or at least not far from it. Quite a nice area, terrible bus service.

    You managed to get work with it?
    I've had one interview for a job in my degree field since I graduated.

    Uni isn't for everyone. I struggled through a degree but I think it was worth it.

    I know some who have worked hard and taken out loans for one degree only to then decide they want to do something else and go and do a new one. They will be majorly broke after that, hope it will be worth it.

    Star Wars is wasted on spouses. Mrs H doesn't like it either.

    So long as they put up with it, one must have compromise with these things (they put up with Star Wars or other sci-fi nerdiness, you put up with whatever horrid stuff they like).

    Although, finding someone who likes all the things you like is kinda awesome.
