pretty fucking sweet? best friends, free home cooked food, double bed and less annoying people. oh yeah
"No. Fucking. Way."
IT'S STARING AT ME
i have a double bed here anf no friends in slough
an occasional visit to home is pretty great though. it makes you appreciate it.
when you have the bright lights of Boothstown to return to
where abouts in boothstown do you live?
the other side of the Moorings and the Greyhound. I relate pretty much everything in Boothstown to those two locations.
it's pretty near me. do you know crosslands road? it's the street behind the back of boothstown methodist's field.
but that'll be up towards Mosley Common/Astley, yeah? There are a couple of pubs up that end I sometimes venture to.
While I was down in London, I forgot how many head-the-balls there were up this end. I was in Walkden the other day, that place is frightening.
feels lots safer in sheff.
and yeah, pretty much. it's next to the east lancs, just before the bit with the queens arms.
my sister went there.
It's amazing though, as soon as you touch down in Walkden you're surrounded by gibbering idiots. It's entertaining, but I wouldn't want to do it too often.
although it was worse around my college (pendleton). i've narrowly avoided being beaten up a few times near there.
but sacked it off as she was too much of a lazy arse to go in.
It is very unpleasant round there though, I don't know how the Salford Uni lot hack it. I believe it's become customary for the locals to twat any freshers who make the mistake of going into the local pubs.
they take in a lot of foreign students too don't they? sucks for them.
so pretty much, yes.
I'm in this position now. It's very odd. I can't smoke when I want and everybody's away. It's odd. It feels interminal. Good food is good though.
using your own familiar old toilet again
that was the first thing i did. it was like greeting an old friend.
i'm back on wednesday, buddy.
I was ill and I wanted to see my cats. It sucked so hard - everybody in my house just shouts all the time, even for polite communication, and the cats had all forgotten me. All I wanted to do was vegetate in front of Sky Sports News with a cup of tea and a cat for 2-3 days, but even SSN wouldn't work. And I got iller than I was when I arrived.
Plus at uni I have Pizza Express salad dressing. UNI4LYF.
for reading week
it has been alright but a bit deserted, everyones still at uni
i've been home once so far and the only especially good part was getting to see my cat. being at home over christmas is going to be so incredibly dull
and all your school friends are in jobs or work and you live hundreds of miles from your awesome uni friends.
But I suppose it has upsides too.
he's the mugger!
alert the proper authorities
but i shall be VIGILANT
it was okay, went to a gig rode my bike a lot, sucks that theres not as many people around though.
i can't wait to get home as well, and for the exact reasons you listed (well, not the doubled bed thing) :D
but I can't even afford the bus fair into town, let alone the train fare home and it's not like my parents will pay for it either.
