Lessons

Posted by Oli on Saturday 19th September, 2009

The Top 20 things I’ve learned this week, in no particular order:

1) Liverpool has lots of pubs and lot of shops.
2) Drinking as a student is really cheap
3) Cheap drinks are remarkably dangerous.
4) Having a friend who works in a £1-a-shot tequila bar is good
5) Asking her to choose your shot of tequila isn’t
6) Chilli tequila is bad.
7) Banksy graffitti’d Liverpool and – remakrably – didn’t get in as much trouble as the bloke I saw doing it in the town centre the other night.
8) There’s a statue of Billy Fury by the docks.
9) The locals for some reason think he’s called Billy Furry.
10) I don’t look very good in a dress.
11) Cold showers are quite rubbish after 6 straight days of them.
12) LIPA is the coolest school in the whole entire world ever and I have no idea why anyone would go anywhere else.
13) School-leavers this year think “retro” is something from the late 90’s.
14) 3rd Years think that Steps, Five and Cotton Eye Joe are all from the 80’s.
15) All my friends live together 20 minutes away from where I live by myself.
16) My timetable is really, really harsh.
17) It’s not as bad as it would have been if I was a designer.
18) Postal workers suck.
19) Pot Noodles taste much worse than Super Noodles.

and finally and probably most importantly:

20) I’m going to LOVE IT here.

    I enjoyed this very much 🙂
    Although even I find 13 very disturbing..19 is so very true, and 20 is just fantastic!
    Really glad you’re having a good time!And if you’ve been in a dress enough to know you don’t look good in a dress then you’ve obviously made the most of being a fresher 🙂 xx

    Glad to hear you’re going to love it 😀

    The Pumphouse at the Albert Dock does a brill chicken and bacon club sandwhich, much nicer than super noodles. x

    So please to hear how much you’ve learnt in your first week. If cold showers are the worst bit then it sounds like it’s all going extremely well! We were only talking about Retro nights the other day and how odd it seems that the 90’s are now classed as such – does that mean that we’re old now?!
