Normally I have the same few dreams over and over again but the past week or so I've had the most messed up dreams ever!!
The dreams include slow moving zombies trying to eat me as I am on my way to practice, flying (and very scary) skeletons with sabres trying to kill me, cannibals in a jungle trying to eat me alive, and some crazy militant regime that sent all their men after me and a few friends to kill us....

The thing is I haven't been watching any crazy movies or reading any crazy stories and my life is pretty much the same as it has been for ages now....the dreams are getting to be a bit much!

Thanks =)

I had my first organic chemistry lecture on Wednesday and my professor is a graduate of the University of London, Kings College. I'm going to speak to him and see if I can get details on the programs there as it was one of the places I was considering. smile.gif

I know exactly what you two mean. There are spots like that in NYC and Boston. I get this personal satisfaction from knowing that little part of the city is unknown to so many other people. The place just sortof becomes a part of you -- like certain areas in central park for me or hidden places in Boston's North end. =)

QUOTE
I can be a defined, fit 12 and a half stone easily. It's silly at work when I get my BMI done (Yeah, on a good day I can get my BMI taken ovre 60 times) and told I am overweight: Im like hello... Have you even enquired as to the amount of exercise I do? Like, SRSLY. This isn'y just wobble- I wanna flex for them, and be all; Can you crimp a hold for as long as me. But hey...


Definitely, my BMI places me at the low end of the obese category/ high end overweight but my body percent fat/muscle is in the correct ratio. In fact my muscle count is higher (as I'm constantly lifting weight). Also, I've seen you froggy and you are most definitely NOT overweight.

Because I stayed there for two and a half months this summer and fell in love. I was living with my boyfriend for one month and rowing for the Henley Regatta for another. I understand London has its downsides, but Boston and NYC do as well.
Originally I had considered Oxford/Cambridge, but my grades slipped a bit last semester and I don't think that I could get in anymore. I've also found a year medical internship in Paris that I would consider but I have more friends located in the London area.

Speaking as an athlete I definitely feel there's a difference between being fit and being thin. I can run/swim/row longer and faster than most people that I know. But, I'm not a skinny person -- part of this is from regular weight lifting. I've started doing triathalons and I'd like to do an iron man before I'm 30.

Recently I've decided I want to lose about 20 lbs. I've kept a lot of my exercise the same but I've cut out almost all meat except for fish and some chicken. Whole grains, lots of low fat yogurt, etc. I come from a rather large family with under active thyroids and so I have to be very careful about what I eat.

I'd like to try the wii fit -- it looks fun, but I don't have a Wii. My friend does though, but we can't seem to find wii fit anywhere. It's sold out. sad.gif

Thanks guys -- that helps. smile.gif

I'm looking for personal opinions too though, or any good things/dirt you've heard. Things they don't tell you on the website.

So I know I'm on and off here a lot but I really do value your opinions! Besides, name a better place to go to get an opinion on London Universities! laugh.gif

So here's the deal, I'm in my last year of college at Boston University in the states and I'm looking for a masters program to complete in London when I'm through. I've looked at a couple one year masters programs at the University of London that I may give a go but I would really appreciate anyone's opinion on where to apply! The main thing I'm looking for is a program in medical sciences, I'm not positive about the concentration yet but I'm flexible!

My main hope is to eventually become a doctor specializing in prenatal genetics -- not baby modification but helping detect/treat genetic conditions/syndromes. If not that, then I'd like to work for doctors without borders in Morocco one day. So whatever degree program I choose should be geared towards the medical field.

Anyways -- has anyone heard anything particularly good/bad from a students standpoint? There's only so much information I can gather from a website!

Thanks for your help guys! smile.gif

Oh well -- do they really cost less? Crazy days man.

So I have to take summer classes - but - if the trip is towards the end of the summer I would be more than willing to join up with you at some point. I would love to do something like this, always wanted to.

QUOTE (syuu @ May 8 2008, 12:17 AM) *
It sounds weird, doesn't it? But online connections, I've found, can be extremely real. Some of the things that have impacted my life totally have been events set in motion by people I've never had a conversation with face-to-face. I think some people understand that, and some people dismiss that kind of connection altogether. Online it's like the social interaction chain backwards - instead of judging someone by their general appearance first, you're forced to get to know them based on the contents of what they say to you. That's often a lot more genuine and heartfelt, especially if they're being truthful in portraying who they really are.



I second that - without online connections I would have been wandering around Heathrow for ages until I found a hostel or hotel of some sort.

*thanks Daria!!*

I just wouldn't be me. This place has helped me to grow and vent and realize that there are so many people out there experiencing similar things and - it may sound cliche - but I'm not alone. =)

In other words it has made me realize that it's okay to be yourself regardless of what the world thinks and that there are genuinely nice people out there.
