University registration

Another quick post for anyone going to university in the future...


I just registered in about 5 minutes simply because all I had let to do was show some ID, click [I ACCEPT] twice and click finish. As for registering with the University health service, I had already done pre-registration online and filled out the health form that they'd sent me, that simply meant I had to hand the form in rather than wait in a queue. I was then told where the exit door was, after giving the woman a bemused look and saying "That was quick." I left, walked home with a student I met from my course while I was there and here I am.

I know it's the third post in 2 days and I'm as surprised as you probably are...normal service of occasional posts will be resumed shortly.

Lost Already

A very quick one, but I would recommend to everyone that the check which building they are meant to be in before searching for a room that doesn't exist in that building, it helps tremendously.

I was only a minute late and it didn't matter as there was still a queue for collecting forms but I  thought I would post for your entertainment, please laugh, Like and subscribe and I'll post again soon.

Moving in!

Hi all,

It's been a while due to preparing for uni, but I don't think any of us expect regular posts to happen any time soon.

I moved in to my flat in the Endcliffe student village in Sheffield yesterday, It is quite possibly the biggest student room I have ever seen and probably the biggest I will ever see but I'm not complaining.

There are 4 of us in the flat and plenty of space for everything other than we only have 3 freezer drawers (I guess that just means eating a lot of fresh food which is likely to keep mum happy).

I missed church this morning as I slept through my alarm which is a great start to waking up earlier. I needed the sleep anyway and there are plenty of churches to go to next week. By the looks of it I may well be going to Horizon (formerly Endcliffe) Methodist Church which is only about a 5 minute walk from my flat through the botanical gardens which is nice.

As for university, I'm in Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday with fairly busy days but then I have a lot less to do towards the end of the week.

I'll do my best to update this as often as I can and don't worry, the posts about my computer and new flight sim stuff are on the way!

Just a quick update.

Hi All,

Just a quick update to let you know what's going on...

I'm still waiting for some flight sim stuff to arrive that I'm planning to review, when I find some time and have it all set up then I will get going on it. 

I've been rather busy sorting things out in order to go to Sheffield in a few weeks so I haven't had much time to write or review. But while I can't provide you much entertainment at the moment, I would suggest going online to 4oD and having a look at the Dispatches program on Ryanair. It was an interesting documentary including interviews with some pilots regarding their safety concerns with the airline and it does raise some questions. I found out about it from a discussion on the 'Airplane Geeks' podcast which is always worth a listen if you're interested in aviation.

I highly recommend the Airplane geeks, have a listen and you'll see why!
Anyway, I should be back with something more interesting soon but hopefully that should give you all enough entertainment for now.
