Civil engineering. Taking my level 7 (BEng (ordinary)) to at least a level 8 (BEng (honours)), possibly masters, but I'll play that by ear. Applying to Herriot-Watt in Edinburgh and the University of Dundee.
Best of luck! Have no idea about Dundee, but Edinburgh is awesome

My head would have been just as stuck in Halo and COD in the labs, with or without you, D'Agg

Think I was the first person who started bringing in portable versions to put on the server for everyone to download. Remember people from the years above being mad to get CS and Halo etc.

Ultimately ended with a small telling off for that

Can't decide on whether to stay in Dublin or head to Cork, but nothing major planned. Meant to meet a wimminz tonight, and that frees my weekend up nicely, tbh!

Angry Birds got me through so much of college! And a bridge building game, cause, y'know, engineering, had to keep my dossing relevant.

I've a date on Saturday. Not just any date though, it's our second date! I know that means nothing to any of ye, but trust me when I say that traditionally I haven't done terribly well with women, so a second date (embarassingly) is a bit of a big deal.

Something along the lines of "I think I should get a parachute cause I'm great".



I'm far too modest for this. And being out of college for 2 years I'm gone a bit rusty at bullshitting...


Edit: Also, empty gym is best gym!
Sociology exam last year - 3 essays in 4 hours, covered probably 20+ pages, believed NONE of it.
...or at least I remember mentally going "man this is bs" when writing chunks of it!

Ah college...

When you get to the stage that you make yourself laugh at the bolloxology you've just come out with, you know you're in free flowing, top notch BS form.

College nostalgia moment right now!

Hey, Hey, Hey! Don't you go knocking yourself there fella

First dates can be difficult enough and you can often not be yourself as a result of being nervous - in my experience anyway, so getting to a second one is pretty good! Enjoy it my man!

Relax anyway Kev, if she liked you the first time round, chances are, she'll like you again!

Enjoy

Once you get that to the second date you know she likes you and may even possible let you touch her boob!!

I once left a girl on her own in a pub once on a first date. Told her I had to go to the jacks and Christian Baled.. Even left my jacket behind. True story. Lol
