So don't I. I just meant that I don't have that same exact class until next Monday. I still have two classes Thursday and two on Friday.

I usually only have one on Friday, but I have a Biology lab that is optional to go to. I plan on going to it as of now. The only reason I won't is if I'm sick or something like that.

Also, to the question about getting accepted into the colleges that you applied to I personally made it into every college that I applied to. That being said I only applied to two different colleges. :p

Question directed at those with any experience in English Universities. Apparently on the applications there's a question asking whether you smoke and that it's vital you put down if you do, even if it is just socially. Anyone have any idea what this is for. Is there smoking/non smoking rooms in some Uni's, or do you think they'll just put your application to the bottom of the pile.

Any facts/theories on this would be greatly appreciated :)

IIRC, I never had to answer such a question on my application. They definitely don't have smoker's rooms in university halls, though. I believe they're all non-smoking.

I dunno what the significance of the question is, frankly... but even if you did smoke and you put down that you didn't, there's no way that they can prove you didn't take it up *after* you went to uni. ;)

You'll probably find EVERY room is non-smoking at pretty much every uni in the UK.

It's actually illegal to smoke on campus at all here. I think it's a 50-100 dollar fine for the first offense if you are caught smoking by the campus police. That's anywhere on campus too so if your out by your car in the parking lot you still can't smoke.

This still doesn't stop anyone though. I've never seen anyone actually get in trouble for smoking and people are all over the place doing it. So they really haven't enforced it at all.

I think that happens to a lot of kids. I mean, you have your 'Reach Schools' and your 'Safety Schools' - you are likely going to be rejected from at least one of your ambitious applications. I had a friend who got rejected from like 6 out of 7 schools she applied to, went to that safety school for a year, and then transferred over to her top choice after her freshman year.

But to answer your question, No - I got into my first choice through the Early Decision process, and had to actually rescind all of my other applications.

Hey guys, can I join?

I've just started University at the Australian National University, doing a B Software Engineering. Lectures don't start until next week though; this week which is called O-week in Australia, is pretty much a huge excuse to get drunk and do fun stuff every night.

So do you guys live on or off-campus? I'm living on campus, at a college called John XXIII. It's been awesome, heaps of cool people.

Sure thing.

I live on campus. I just picked where I'm going to live for next year this morning around 9:30. I got the dorm that is right next to all of the class rooms, the cafeteria, and the gym. The way we pick is from pulling a number out of a box and that's the order that we choose our dorms. I was lucky to get 116 so I got to pick really early. My girlfriend picked somewhere around 700 though so she doesn't have too much of a chance to get into the dorm that I'm in, but there's still a chance.

All halls of residence here are off-campus, but we're only 15 minutes walk away so it's all fine and peachy.

I live on campus until like June or something. I'm living in a house next year; the deposit went through today so all that's left to do is wait for the contract to arrive and sign it.

Nah, I don't live on campus, I'm close enough to the university that I can get in fairly easily (Limerick isn't exactly a huge city) so it's not really worth the expense to be honest. A lot of my friends are living on campus though, and they seem to like it a lot, but that depends on which student village you're in; some are much nicer than others.

That's cool. The one I'm staying at is pretty close to the lecture halls and stuff, about 10-20 minutes walk away for most of them, which is pretty good. The actual ANU campus is really close to the main city centre in Canberra, so that's really good if I need to go in to buy something.

Do you guys in other countries have anything like O-Week here, for freshmans and new students?

I'm currently attending Omardeen's School of Accountancy. As you can probably guess, I'm majoring in Accounting.

So you can do your own taxes and stuff?

and is it hard to be an Accountant?

I lived on campus for the most of my college years. It was nice being able to roll out of bed 15 mins before class. In my senior years I moved off. Your own place is much better than a cramped dorm room.

O as in orientation? My school had something called "Camp Crimson" where the incoming students stayed in the dorms for a week in the summer before classes to help them get acquainted to the college life and to find where everything was at. I never went myself since I transferred but I hear it's helpful.

Remember to add the space between the quotes. :p

*Will probably mess up in this post now for saying that*

Yeah that's fine with me. Your usually the only thing that keeps me organized enough to get anything done anyway. As long as you promise to clean the room every once in awhile.

Yeah, and I haven't been yet this year. I would have been once, but she woke me up in time to get ready.

On another note, I'll probably be getting some minor surgery on my toes to get the toenails removed and make it so they never grow back again sometime next week because I have a grossly ingrown toenail which is really infected. I can barely walk actually. It's going to feel good to be able to walk/run again without the throbbing pain in my toes and the blood. I might even be in better shape for semi-pro football this year if I don't have to worry about my feet hurting all of the time.

That's if I even have time for that. I might have a job down here in the summer, along with summer classes.

Yeah that's the ticket. It's great, since it's a good way to make a heap of new friends if you've moved from another town (like me), and also to get to know the campus a bit better and stuff. The older students are a great help too, since they can point you in the right direction if you have trouble with something.

In the UK, in pretty much every uni there is a week after you move into halls, just before term starts, which mainly consists of getting absolutely trashed and remembering very little.

So, first day of uni today, this week all except one of my units have no tutorials. Much fun was had regardless in the sense of talking to a few people in my course.

Except the lectures were boring. I need to be doing something for me to be interested in it.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were pretty lame for me as I was working most of the week. I had an 8 page assinment, 3 page assingment, and around 3 other assiments that I had to get done. I finally managed to get them all done, but with very minimal studying for the exam that I have today and the one that I have tomorrow. Hopefully I don't have much to do tonight so I can study for the one tomorrow.

Starting next Monday I have Spring Break so I won't be around here until night time before I go to bed since I have dial up at home. I'll also have student teaching three days of spring break. I still have to think of a lesson to teach them, but I should have that lesson figured out today or tomorrow depending on how soon the teacher I'm working with answers me.

Sometime this week I still need to head over to the hospital so I can get my toes taken care of. I can't wait until that's done.

Haven't updated in awhile, but I need a place to vent and this seems to be appropriate so...

Got rejected from 3 interviews, probably because I was nervous and didn't come across as a strong candidate. I have two more interviews tomorrow and I've refined my strategy so I hope that works out.

I found out today that I have a midterm next Tuesday for my easiest class. I'm not worried too much. Also found out that I have a 12 page paper due in 9 days. I should have found out about this earlier but my teacher had an emergency for the last lecture, so they didn't show up and didn't give us any heads up that this essay was drawing nearer.

I also have a test next Friday which is the same day as my schools unofficial St. Patricks day, meaning that while everyone else is out getting drunk and having fun, I'm going to be studying/taking a test and won't be able to join in until later in the evening.

Just a lot on my plate all at once. It felt good to get that out.

Just keep at it and practice. Remember you are selling them your skill, labor, and time. Brag a little bit.

I remember my last interview, I bragged about my work and my leadership skill and I got the job. Don't sound cocky but show them that you can be dependable.

Also, assignments, i have about 2 already. Your thoughts on when/how to attack it?

There's still a lot of time to make it up. There's always one of those tests or even more that you don't do a good job on.

Get them done soon. That means the more time that you have later on and just in case you forget to do something else your not booked down with other assignments to do.

I only have one class tomorrow and that's an exam so I'm going to spend the rest of the night looking over my notes. Friday I don't have any classes so I'll probably sleep in and everything. I'm going home Friday night for Spring Break.

I can't believe how much work I have to do over Spring Break, but it shouldn't be too bad.

I have to student teach for 3 full days, which won't be a problem at all. I'll have to write up a paper about that and everything. I also have a research paper to do, but that shouldn't be too much of a problem either. That should take about 4 days out of my break.

I also have to help my girlfriends sister in math because she is home schooled, and I have another project in my Reading Class where I have to work with a student and figure out their reading styles.

So as you can see I have a pretty busy Spring Break, but I'm deciding to do it now so I don't have to do it at the end of the semester.
