What. I can't comprehend this at all, it's far too weird for me right now. I mean, I am going to be spending the next four years of my life thinking about engineering. Willingly. 

Also, I've still got to apply for accommodation at this point because the system wouldn't let me until results came out. Which, yeah, there's less than a month til I start uni so I'd like to get on that pretty fast. But it's 10.30pm/4.30am depending on where my body clock is right now (having a holiday in Florida :D), so I'm going to go nap-nap. And apply for somewhere to live tomorrow. 

* this felt like a three exclamation point moment; it's only taken me 5 days to confirm the place. and now all i've gotta do is apply for accommodation and try not to flunk out. elementary icon because a. i've only just got more than one icon up so let's use them and b. sherlock = thinking things in my mind, and so does uni. 

also: i'm going to uni ((((((:

Hey congratz n ting! :D What kind of engineering you doing?

Ooh I see! Sounds... well, I would say sounds good but actually, chemistry was my most hated subject ever at Alevel, so except for straight chemistry, I can't think of anything I'd rather be doing less, lol :P Except for maybe like, music or english or something?! I was also rubbish at those... haha Rather you than me ;) Hope you enjoy it though!

Where are you going? You're Scottish, right? Do you still have no tuition fees in Scotland? I just got a letter from the student loans people and the amount I owe them is depressing.

Snap with the alevel subjects! Whoop whoop! What's made you do Chemical Engineering then?! Is it the family thing? You should totes be doing physics like all the great people (i.e. me, lololol)

So jealous! Are you saying non-English Europeans get to go to Scottish uni's without fees?!
I'm just glad I got to uni before the tuition fee hike, my sister is going to have absolutely ridiculous amounts of debt by the end of her degree (and y'know, 30 grand is still pretty ridiculous :S). Where abouts in France were you? How come you were over there? (sorry man, it's like 20 questions over here!!!)

Ah, no yeah that makes perfect sense. And a sensible thing to be thinking about, really! When I graduated I was incredibly jealous of all my engineering friends who had so much choice about jobs? Physics seemed like a good choice at the time, but, idk!
I'm currently in Sheffield, just finishing up my first year of doing a PhD. It's pretty sweet tbh. In three years I'll (hopefully!) be a doctor (and let me tell you, I will insist EVERYONE IN THE WORLD refers to me by my proper title of DR haha), and in the mean time I get paid (tax free! and I still get a student card!) to mess around in the labs all day. Much better than getting a job ;)

Wow, living in the center of Paris, that sounds awesome! I am super jealous :P
