One of our dinosaurs is missingI have searched the blogs. Albeit is a less then thorough way. I cannot find a way to find post grads. Or even mature post grads. I am a lonely dinosaur in a vast university of youngsters.
I wish I could say that it didn't bother me. I mean, I don't get spots any more, am quite happy listening to radio four, and bring a thermos to uni. If others don't feel the need to bring a packed lunch; bag of dried fruit; four jaffa cakes; small bag of sunflower seeds; the magical 'executive thermos'; packet of quavers; Greek yoghurt (with spoon and golden sultanas); and chocolate bar, more fool them!
It's not like I have wet wipes in the car…
What do others notice about mature students? What tips do you have for not spending ANY money once at uni? Anything else I should add to my bag lady trolley?
I feel that with enough preparation I can get through this year, so help gratefully received.
