True dat, although it's not something that ever seemed weird to me (unless you were being facetious) merely logical. Most people get proper chunky because of all the shit they eat and drink. That's not to say everyone does, some people lose a bit, quite often it seems to be the people that gain an increased drug habit at uni although again it's not a clear cut difference. I think I put a couple of pounds on in first year but it's all good because since June I've gone down from 11 stone 6 to 8 stone 13. I was afraid I'd go all weedy and stick-looking but fortunately that doesn't seem to be a look I'm built for so instead I just look like a trimmer sexier version of the bloke I was before.

Most important thing is probably just to make sure you don't become one of those wankers that uses "being a student" as an excuse to have a fucking shit diet. The latter is not an inherent part of the former.
I used to have a link to a social networking site here but these days you all probably already know who I am.

Well I'm eating pretty damn well compared to when I lived at home. No frozen pizzas or takeaways, and I don't really snack because I can't afford it. And I'm eating a hell of a lot more vegetables than I used to because they're pretty cheap! I wish for this to continue :3
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Totally this. I really wasn't expecting it but eating healthily is actually incredibly easy, and I enjoy cooking as well, which took me by surprise. :lol:

Whilst I'm feeling over-worked, partly stressed and under continual pressure from uni work, and 2 additional jobs i've taken on on top of that which I was already doing, I can't help but feel really fucking content with my life right now :D

Did a job for a bloke from the pub, so now I can afford to go to the pub at some point this week. I don't think I'd have been able to handle another week without paying a visit.

I looked in the mirror today and noticed that I'm slimming down because I actually have a jawline these days. I'm having one of those rare days were I actually feel like an attractive bloke!

I got a date around the same time of the Katatonia/Alcest gig next month with a chick I met at Muse. I am somewhat pleased with myself right now :3

Getting to see another couple of awesome bands while successfully fighting off a bad attack of agoraphobia. Might have been even shier than usual but I still had a great time.

Had an amazing night at Sabaton/Eluveitie, made even better by the fact that they mentioned and read out the cards we got them whilst on stage, and from catching a pick for the second night in a row :)

Was it you guys that also did the metal machine/penis banner? :D That was brilliantly daft.
