#58877 What's On Your Mind

Posted by Kevin_Kilbane on 24 October 2005 - 08:24 PM in General Chat

Hetherthington Building?

Is that the Languages one?

If so, its beside the Adam Smith Building. You can either get to it by taking the wee lane at the side of the library which appears dodgey but you end right outside it. Or, take the lane at the QMU then go round to the front of the Adam Smith and its opposite you. Or, at the corner of Byres Road (the corner where Curlers is) walk up past the car park at Ashton Lane and you'll eventually come to it - its got a University of Glasgow sign on it.

Posted by Kevin_Kilbane on 05 August 2005 - 06:33 PM in General Chat

I'm so tired from work its unreal. I've done 3 8am starts, so I had to get up at 6.45 am Tuesday, Thursday and today.

I could barely feel my legs last night and everything felt so slow.

Now, I'm doing my contracted hours over the weekend and 8-6 on Monday.

I nearly crashed my car I got for 18th on Xmas Eve.

huh.gif

I was driving along Maryhill Road and I didnt notice there were 2 sets of traffic lights. Both were at red but I drove though one of them and a car came out and just avoided me.

Worse thing was...my mum and Dad were behind me.

Uni's certainly a massive transition from school.

There is no-one there telling you what to do, where to go or chasing you up if you miss a class. Your on your own and from day 1 you've got to be there, ready to go.

In saying that, I'm having the time of my life right now. The first Semester has been difficult but I've learnt a lot of things which will make be better prepared for next Semester.

One of the best things I've done was register on www.thestudentroom.co.uk and www.newstudent.org. These are websites where you can meet people going to your choosen Uni's and I'm not ashamed to say that I've met my best mate of one of them!

Uni's difficult in the first few weeks. I didn't make any friends on my course until 2 weeks in after a night out - it's important you go to these but I'm lucky that my course - Accounting - has less than 100 people on it and only 50 turn up for lectures so you really know everyone.

If you meet the right people, get the right course and like where your at then you'll have an amazing time. IMO, Uni can't be compared to school - I don't speak to many people from school and I've only been out with one person from school since leaving in May.

Basically, as your filing your UCAS form out, make sure you pick the University(s) that you'd be comfortable at.

Amazing performance?! Your having a laugh.

Arty Brataslava are piss, and Celtic - a "football giant" - still can't beat them.

Champions League, YOUR HAVING A LAUGH.

#64284 How was your day today?

Posted by Kevin_Kilbane on 17 December 2005 - 04:05 PM in General Chat

I was at the end of term event at the GU last night called Daft Friday. Its a black tie event from 8pm to 8am with lots of 'big' acts.

Only managed 11 hours, got ripped off when buying a pint of Fun (FIVE QUID huh.gif ) but that was one of the best nights of my life!

Did you see that guy and the other protestor starting to argue over why he wasn't protesting peacefully.

He's foolish to think that if he stood there, the police wouldn't have given him a kicking giving the fact he's probably launched a lot of missles at them.



#40509 Live 8

Reading all this rubbish about the police is a good laugh.

The protestors broke into the farmers fields. The police had to get them out incase they got further into Gleneagles. Solution - start wacking the people that don't move.

As for Edinburgh, that march was not planned. The Police had to use heavy handed tactics to ensure everyone followed the law.

While everyone speaks about Africa, is the dire poverty throughout parts of Europe and in Scotland beeing looked at?

No.

Why doesn't he, Macca and Bono give some of there many millions or in Macca's case hundred's of millions if they are so "concerned"

Self Help Schemes and better business practices are what are needed as oppose to thinking about Africa once every blue moon.

Live 8 has been piss.

Bob Geldof is also a tit.

Well Katrina seems to think all the protestors are fun loving and would never harm a fly.



#39235 Live 8

Posted by Kevin_Kilbane on 04 July 2005 - 10:25 AM in General Chat

Geldof's a rat.

"Oh I want all of Scotland to donate money to MPH".

Is he forgetting Scottish people give more money to charity than any other country in Europe?

If he was to dig deep into his pocket, he'd find a few million lying about which he could donate. Same with most of the Live 8 artists - Madonna, Coldplay, Paul Macca - stop all your pleading crap and donate some of the spare millions you have.

Everyone makes out Africa to be poverty strucken - its not. Yes there is wide spread poverty but there are a lot of rich people there. Geldof should be encouraging self help schemes which with local involvement will work than trying to get as much money as possible to donate to some corrupt Leader.

As for the cause of Aids, perhaps the Catholic church should be encouraging rather than discouraging the use of contraception.

Send your CV to the manager.

Phone up and get his/her name and you should get a reply.

I done that with the big 5 Accountant firms and got 5 replies.

Also done it with my current job, so someone should get back to you.

Managers are paid more than you to deal with these situations.

It's their concern, not yours - your only getting paid to sell pies.

Don't worry about it.



#40891 Summer work

Posted by Kevin_Kilbane on 09 July 2005 - 05:35 PM in Student Life

I hate my job.

I also had some silly woman complaining because I asked her if she needed a bag. Fair enough, she was buying some bulky goods, but it is company policy to ask if customers need a back - I don't make up the policy, so I don't need or want her rubbish.

My manager also moans/gets on at us/shouts/gives us so much hassle. He's a midget (small person symndrome) but I don't need or want his rubbish. I'm now so close to walking out with his comments.



#43383 Summer work

Posted by Kevin_Kilbane on 19 July 2005 - 07:32 PM in Student Life

I don't understand why the manager is complaining that you gave out her name?

She's the manager FFS.
