    Are the riots still going? The news in the US no longer covers it. Seriously I'm asking. No troll.

    How about any other A-level people?

    If you are going to University in the Leeds/Bradford area and want a "familiar face" just give me a shout. I'll be in my third year so can help if I can.

    Also Good luck!

    the pics were taken on my mobile as is has bluetooth and quicker/easier to upload to my PC. will get my big camera out for reviews

    I eat sleep and shit technology my friend :rockout::rockout:

    buying something new is always an exciting experience. Similar to the one when your dad gets you your first bicycle. (mine was a little red BMX from toys R' us) And expects you to ride the damn thing without the stablisers.

    Lol i get that feeling too when my parents 1st bought me a new bike,until couple years later i've stopped riding it then my older brother does because mine was bigger than his in terms of frame. And snaps the frame which holds the tyres. So i bought new bike i was excited,much bigger than my old bike and damn its fast.

    Now i got car,it was a meh feeling since it was passed on from my brother.
    When i got my laptop my parents didn't even tell me and left it by the door inside the house and i was like yes!,but no wooo.
    Lol London i will be visiting London in September for a wedding.

    o_0 Its not going to work that way. You must at least stay at halls for 1 year. Otherwise going back with a girl/full of booze is going to be awkward.

    I am a northerner originally from Oldham, though living in the Midlands now and I really don't know how people can work and live in and around London as to me going there and using the tube is my worst nightmare though I have to now and then for work. I know if you grew up there it is just part and parcel of living in London but to outsiders like me it is horrible :laugh: not in a disrespectful way btw I just can't stand being in crowded places and don't even get me started on driving, even outside of the capital ( I visit Harrow on the hill quite regularly) it's horrendous, stopping, starting, people walking/pulling out into the streets. Defo not cut up for London life lol
