Where on earth has all this work come from?
Is it me or have they allowed us freshers to be lulled into a false sense of security purely for the purpose to then off load an unreal amount of work upon us! I feel like the good people as this university have lied to me. When I applied to this uni, it never entered my head that WORK might actually be involved. It is bordering on ludicrous!
Right! Thats my first rant over and done with. My second rant relates to the extortionate price of everything at this university. I live off-campus which means when I get here in the morning and fancy a cup of coffee in a nice warm cafe I am then subject to parting with a substantial amount of my already menial student loan. It is madness The only thing I am actually finding quite cheap is the clothes marketplace where you can buy nice tops and stuff for like £2 each which is pretty cool!
The only reason I'm writing this rant is in the hope that I'm not the only one who thinks that the world(and this uni) have gone mad!
PS Arctic Monkeys Number 1: Great song, great band but now they are number one does that mean they will suffer the fate of artists such as James Blunt who are no longer "cool" because they have merged into "mainstream"? Just some food for thought but only time will tell. Or NME perhaps ;-)
