Varsity Student Formites

Unread postby cheetah2111 » Mon Mar 21, 2011 1:10 pm

Hey all :D :D

lets be honest ... 90% of all formites are over 30! And there are many oldies out there :roll:
The real minority is us young folk :sniper:
The teeny tinies already have their own chit chat topic :hmz:
What about varsity students :huh:

Are there any others out there????
I'm 21, and in JHB its difficult to find a single soul who loves nature :evil:

If there are any other students, do you find this website is a serious threat to your passing? :lol: Like it is in my case :lol:

Great to "meet" you cheetah2111! :D

I am 22 and at Rhodes, and yes, this site is a very serious threat to my passing!! haha :twisted:

But I am studying environmental science so I always just convince myself that it's somehow a benefit to my studies :thumbs_up:

I know there are one or two more students on these forums, lets see if they appear on this thread! :hmz:

Bushfairy if I were studying environmental studies I would totally ride on that excuse :thumbs_up:

I study Audio Visual at UJ. So I tell myself that looking at photography of animals will benifit me :tongue:

Technically, I still haven't graduated from UCT because they've lost my records, so i'm clinging on to the the fact that i'm still a student until the day I graduate :)

Cheetah you must be just down the road from me if you at UJ main campus? I'm at WITS.
