    Just to allay more fears...the shared kitchen that was on the floor in my halls was fine because to be honest, no-one ever used it! From time to time someone would be making a bit of toast but that was about it. I was in catered halls though to be fair.

    r.e. the bathroom though, the cleaner(s) came in every day without fail and I can honestly say that I never had a massive problem. In fact, I found it worse when I moved out of halls and into a shared house. One of my housemates seemed to have real issues in flushing the loo, even when it wasn't just a wee....

    With shared facilities, you don't always get cleaners though. In the halls I was in, there were 6 people to a flat, and we had a shared kitchen/living area to each flat, and ensuites. Our cleaners only did hallways/stairs/lifts - anything beyond the door to our flat was our responsibility (including bathrooms). I kept most of my pans/plates in my room after the first few months otherwise people (well, one person in particular who was a complete twat) would use them and not wash them. We hoovered the hallway a grand total of once in the year haha. The kitchen got gross sometimes, but I just kept my own stuff clean - I wasn't cleaning up after them. I'm glad we didn't have a cleaner, would've hated someone coming into my room =/

Mental. (Obviously, not saying you're like that at all!) Good luck with the nursing

    Is anyone else really, really nervous about uni? I am. We're going to do about three weeks of life drawing at the start, and I suck badly at it :(. I hate feeling out of my depth. And I'm worried it'll be like secondary all over again, not really fitting in with a 'group'. I wish my best friend was going to be in London, but she's going to Leicester.
    Haha you're right, there's a lot of pressure for teenagers to go straight into uni from college/sixth form so a lot of people just pick something and don't think of the consequences or opportunities it'll give them. Unfortunately, I didn't listen to my heart which always wanted nursing and I chose to listen to the "do something academic" side in my sixth form college and now it's gonna bite me on the arse because it means having an at the moment unwanted gap year (though I'll probably be okay once I'm into it - I've got a job, I volunteer, I'm close to doing my practical driving test, I'll be able to start flat hunting for student housing with friends already at the university early and I'll have no college to distract me). I'm going to give trying to get in this September by asking them to change my course a shot, though I'm sure it'll be full by now, and if not then whatever, I'll get there eventually

    -hugs- the beautiful thing about university is everyone is in the same boat. Just like your first day of school, you'll all be nervous and quite desperate (in a good way) to make friends so I think you'll find many opportunities to get settled quickly. Don't worry about the life drawing aspect until you're there doing it

    I just graduated Uni - I went to Glasgow Uni and loved it.

    I kind of miss it and keep thinking 'if I had a time machine and could go back and do it all over again, I'd do things better, make more friends, speak up more in class, join in more of the stuff that scared me etc...'. But truthfully, I don't think that would be possible anyway, it's just nostalgic wistful rubbish. Some personality traits always stick with you and you can't really ditch them, even if you try. I'm a bit less shy than I was 4 years ago when I began my degree, but still shy just the same. I couldn't ACTUALLY do the entire degree any better...!

    Just submitted my 3rd Java assignment eeep. I still get scared every time I submit something, haha. Only one more assignment for this module now, then my exam in October (which I am 100% dreading, wahhh!).

    Then I start a Visual Basic (lol) module in September, and an IT one in Feb which looks a bit boring...hopefully this will be an easyish year though. Then the year after I'll be doing some design & e-business modules which I'm looking forward to. And the level 3 modules after that look really cool too, even if it seems like foreverrrrrrrrr away.
