One of our dinosaurs is missing

I 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.

    There is no easy way to find all postgrads with blogs , and no way at all to find people by by age group. PhD students are classified as staff for the purposes of ITS, and they dont appear to distinguish between undergraduates and masters students.
    Fortunately I don't have to worry about not spending money so I have no useful tips there.

    It's something that we're working on. We intend it to be possible to choose a set of blogs to read, including undergrad, postgrad, staff, alumni and other groupings. Sorry it isn't easy to do right now.

    Sorry… ;-)
