1. ones from LSE
2. mike the glam rock guy in my old class "hi i'm mike and like guns and roses and glam rock"
it sounds better
it really doesn't
apart from the girl who started crying this morning. I felt sorry for her
can just be exteremely rich foreigners who are twonks. NOT becuase they're foreign, but by default because they're rich, rich , rich.
but generaly its the soas law students that are pretty unbearable..and the economics lot...
but the LSE rich foreigners are a lot worse
young people who don't like students are jealous.
i really really really want to have to deal with deadlines, presentations and exams while having to cope on a ridiculously small amount to live on.
where do i sign up?
oo, PRESENTATIONS ... how do you cope? Incidentally, in proper jobs people have deadlines and presentations. Ones that actually DO matter. So y'know.
Being a studnet has some obvious advantages ... like being given an incredibly cheap loan to spend on shit and learn nothing. Unless you do dentistry or something.
i seem to remember you saying you didn't go to university in a previous conversation.
i was just mistakenly given someone elses grade by mistake ... but accepted it anyway because it was better than what i thought my project was worth
what a tit
for getting up and going straight to DiS. And being on a foundation course which isn't really being a proper student anyway. And for studying art, which isn't even a proper subject.
6. Students who like things 'ironically'.
for hating the place I'm at and instead of just giving up, actually being sufficiently meek to continue when i have few exciting prospects for next year
8. for taking a level history - rubbish!
Yeah SOAS had a lot of rich foreign kids, but so did everywhere else in London. :'( The SOAS dream ended last year and I havent been back since.
in contact with are SO bad it deserves to be said twice.
it was a waste of time. but who cares?
because it's a year of my life i could have been working and going out and having fun. So...
"students who like things 'ironically'"
i have loads of friends at/soon to be at cambridge!
someone came up to me ONE WEEK before our dissertation had to be in saying 'fuck - I don't even know what my question is yet!!', like I should be impressed. Then they scowled at me for being an uber-nerd, because I'd liek, WORKED for my degree.
my mum paid for me to go to university by having two jobs her whole life. so i worked hard cos it was her money not mine.
now i do fuck all at work but its my own money so it dont matter
I just hated being made to feel like a 'loser' for doing my seminar readings. Worse than school!
they had to repeat the 1st year about 4 times. and lets be honest, who was mates with the 25 year old guy in the 1st year?
i feel really awkward telling people that i really enjoy theory lectures. i just think, if you want to drink and smoke a massive amount of money away you might as well get a job and hence not be in debt afterwards. Or something.
you SHOULD go to uni and get fucked up. but you should also do work. well, if you do a degree that you are actually intersted in
doing a degree you're not interested in? Unless your parents are forcing you to become a lawyer or something. Plus i couldn't get fucked up all the time, it seems...pointless.
you sound happy so whats the problem?
you have to get fucked ALL the time
maybe i need to rethink this...
relatively expensive. So you shoudln't do one that offers you no financial return.
you're not guaranteed a job, but if you get good work experience to go with your degree, employers will always look kindly on them, whatever it's in! (speaks the 'Cultural Studies' student, oh dear...)
think you should do a degree if you're not prepared to work for it. Unless you're an uber-genius who doesn't have to...
naturally one should enjoy the perks of studentdom - i.e. a license to booze and party a lot at student prices. but if that's all you do... well, rather a waste of tuition fees really, isn't it?
i hate the ones at my uni that slouch into lectures/classes an hour late, do fuck all, slow everyone down, refuse to participate, then cry/moan/bitch when a group assignment comes around and no-one wants to work with them. you'd think such people would have figured out that studying is perhaps not actually what they want to do.
also loathe the ones that think they're better/more interesting than anyone else because they go/went to suchnsuch university.
people used to get annoyed with me for doing a minimal amount of work, walking a first and finishing top of my year.
anyone can get a good degree if they WORK at it.
besides bragging on t'internet? :-P
a boyfriend at it.
They have earnest conversations in coffee shops during which they say the phrase 'sort of' FAR too much. ("it's just so... sort of... blah")
was to the 'what's wrong with cambridge kids?' post.
and i'm one of them.
i am glad that you have a vaguely proper reason rather than some stupid 'elitism' thing. cos that really isn't true. most of us feel like imposters much of the time.
is still fairly elitist, surely? i'm sure i could construct an unimpeechable case for it being so. Using, sort of, statistics n that.
I don't mind the top few universities, though, because from my second hand experience of them people that go there tend to have to work. In that sense, it differs from every university that's either not as good as warwick or better than the thames valley.
I think for most people, going to university rots their brains ... the ones that do very well will claw themselves back up to a-level standards of intelligence in their final year.
is too true
and i thought i as being provocative.
because the original subject wasn't so much the uni, as the students. was just saying that i don't think the students here are categorically more arrogant than at other places.
yeah, i'd agree with that. i spent a bit of time kicking around in cambridge and the people there were as diverse as anywhere else.
Somebody who does sordid pottery for cash?
so they're a member of the Insane Clown Posse?
when Glasgow and Strathclyde uni rugby teams play each other, the Glasgow Uni fans chant 'your dad works for my dad'
I've fucked up college/uni all three times I've tried. Will maybe have one last go to get the necessary qualifications to make a decent living working with degenerate alkies.
I've got a friend and a relative who hate students. They both say 'they think they're something better than the rest of us'. I think they have a woodwork o grade between them.
not heard that one! thought these days Strathie and Glasgow were considered kinda equally high in the snob-ish scale of things...does anyone else go to uni in glasgow?
we had the same thing between Manchester and Salford. I thought it was pretty vile myself.
i know! who gives a toss...though that Glasgow Caledonian...pffft.
im pretty sure theres some people i've seen posting without subject lines...is there a trick or a knack? ooo how harry potter!
use the space bar :)
surely you like it or you don't
and if you say its ironic you're just trying to avoid people pointing out your absymal taste
what if someone claims to like something for its ironic content?
