The first 5 years or so I sailed through HOL schooling, then real life started getting a bit more real and I kept drifting in and out of HOL. Now I'm back and...

I've only just started on New Moon after finishing Twilight last night. So far, I absolutely love this series. Even although it is, of course, fantasy, I can still see it happening and at times get so totally lost in the story that I think Edward is actually sitting next to me /rolleyes.gif" style="...

Ooh, hard one... What do I look for? Usually I have a good mix of Full-Year and One-Term Classes, as well as a mixture of known Professors and new ones. The most important thing for me, when choosing classes, has to be the subject though... I'll always look for something that appeals to me, i.e. mus...

My first name Morag is pronounced Mawrack (more or less anyway) and it's simply the Gaelic name for Sarah. McQueen is easy Mac-Queen.
This thread is a wonderful idea by the way /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
