Third time lucky me thinks! Maybe I'm just not as dumb as I used to be or a tiny bit of what I learnt last time actually sunk in, but either way I'm really excited as it's making a lot of sense. Of course, being halfway through chapter 2 is a bit soon to be talking big but at least this time it is fun, not stressful and dull. I spent a little time looking at the concept of 'backwhacking' as I must have skipped that part before. My senses tell me I shall be a n00b for a little while yet<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:) advocate_pm 2007-07-05T21:48:20+00:00 journal University Life Fresher's week started ok but is getting a bit boring now; actually looking forward to starting the lectures and whatnot!<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:S <p> <b>note</b>* always take a key when you go out for the night - if a flatmate goes home early, leaving you in a club a mile away By Yourself(!) things could turn ugly. </p><p> had the pleasure of talking to Beatnik on MSN the other night...I really wish I could have gone to Belfast<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:( </p><p>spoke to my course leader at uni and they said that i had the opportunity to spend two years abroad = Belgium and Germany (two European countries I've yet to see) either studying and/or working<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:D</p> advocate_pm 2004-09-23T22:57:52+00:00 journal coursework Hmm, started coursework in History awhile back and need to think of a topic but can't!
