tomorrow doesn't matter,
turn that music up,

well......

my, i wasnt motivated enuf. My day lasted from 9-5 (mon-fri) with only 3 hours bein lectures, i had 5 hours break each day! all that waitin about was awful, a lot of the times i just gave up and went home....that was my biggest problem. I had to resit geog exam recenctly, but instead of resittin that, i thot i would venture out and try my luck at strath! so i did, and i got in.....

But it all depends on the subjects you pick! u cud hav lects 9-12 and that would be you finished! i wasnt that fortunate!

me failing geog was due to my bad essays! i am a scientist not a writer! i cant write essays to save myself....

strong advice: pick courses you kno you will like, enjoy, pass, succeed....wen i chose geog, it was because i had done it at school and it was the most relevant subject out of them all to finish off my choice of 3 (others bein physics and maths). But now, i wish i went for a brand new subject eg Astronomy, Earth Science etc...

i will be quiet now!


Now that you're starting at Strathclyde are you going into 2nd year or do you have to start at 1st year again? I really hope my timetable at Glasgow isn't like yours!
The race is long, and in the end it's only with yourself.

I haven't received any registration information yet either, so I wouldn't worry just yet. Apparently it arrives around 3 weeks before registration begins, so I would probably expect it anytime now.
