Oh, man, I still have a dream of seeing Metallica and Iron Maiden live one day.
That would have been awesome.
Funny thing is, it is usually the metalheads, with piercings, tatoos, and long hair, that are avoided by the general public like the plague, while the neds are not.
Metalheads are some of the coolest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Until it gets into the pits, then it is everyone for themselves.
first gig I ever weant to was to see jethro tull when I was about 11, im afraid I dont remember much about it. The first one I remember properly was seeing metallica plus monster magnet supporting in dublin when I was 15. It was brill apart from I nearly didnt get in because I wasnt accompanied by an adult, the bouncer said I wasnt allowed in, I was nearly in tears, then some big hairy metalhead behind me in the queue said 'wee man! your my little brother ok?' god bless you random rocker
Yup, pics should be coming soon, when I can be bothered connecting my phone to my computer.
Eluveite! Damn they are awesome, I think The Essence of Ashes is my favorite for me. Disturbed is another great band, man it's good to someone else has a good taste in music.
yeah uni life is pretty 50/50, you either have a hard time getting ahold of anyone or your suddenly in a none stop party. i had the same issue in my first year, i'm now in third year and, well a good example of the turn around is i'd got out drinking 1-3 times a month in first year. this week i've been asked to 5 days worth of parties... oh if only i had the budget.
you'll love uni life once you get past the first term or so, and you find your niche. glad to hear its going better though!
Well, after a few weeks it has all come out nicely. I now know just about everyone on this campus.
I met a few more british people but they also turned out to be a bit...meh. I didn't get on with a few, and the others were not all that great to be around. Aside from the fact that when I was with them they abandoned me in the middle of paisley. Good thing I have other friends.
I have now decided that to be honest, I would rather hang out with the foreign students, as they are awesome and always happy to make new friends.
Just think of the nice girlies, Os!
Hey man, being away from home can be rought when its the first time. I love almost an hour away from my family. You'll learn to love that sapce eventually. It means your parents aren't bugging you about everything all the time :) lol
There are days I wish I was closer, but not very often. Keep building new relationships, and before long, you'll be fine!
Yea I think so.
Man... I feel like going there and handing out copies of the Daily Mail!
Do the 'locals' turn up later too in general?
University of the West of Scotland. Paisley.
The reason there are so many foreigners is that the campus I am on is the one that they put the foreigners on first. Also the Uni runs an international program, so people from all over the world can come here for a year or so. A good way to meet new people
OMG it's the invasion of the unbritish!! Invasion is unbritish!
Jokes aside I hope you do well at uni. If you're bored well err... I dunno just be bored!
Where have you gone?! Why is it full of foreigners?!!
xD I am usually good at spelling, but sometimes I fail. Horribly.
If you are going to do anything wrong, do it wrong in style :D
