  1. That's a good point. I think networking opportunities depend on *what* you're networking about, maybe? The UK is teeny tiny compared to Texas but it's still comparatively hard to travel from one end to another, so I think where you go might impact your opportunities in some ways. I dunno - my course actually got cancelled this year so I'm taking it next year instead. 🙄 Figuring out what to do in the mean time has been a GIANT HEADACHE, but I think I'm going to do a one-year business course at the same college, so I'll kind of be doing a 4 year course instead of 3. It's not ideal, but the economy is so shit at the moment that it might be nice to get out of the jobs market for a few years. Ah thanks! I'll link it here when I put it up on my stories blog. Aw thanks! I am never writing that much formatting into a piece ever again haha
  2. Hey! Weclome to the boards. They're quieter than they used to be, but a few of us are still around/came back when MCR reunited. I'm Francesca.
  3. Arghhhh Actually it's going okay, I keep having to refer back to here though for formatting! That's why I popped in just now hahaa
  4. Guys. Not sister wives related but kinda, I guess. I write regular stories for the internet, and I decided that the one for next week could be about fandom (been thinking about fandom/religion/cult/family and how weird it is that almost everyone I know, I know through MCR). So I thought I'd do the story as a version of a fan forum, complete with thread titles and timestamps. And page counters. And smileys. On Microsoft Word. It was either the best or worst creative decision I've ever made. Send help. Am totally stealing some of our thread titles.
  5. I like the appointment system style of doing things too. It's a bit stressful as a customer (WHAT IF I MISS MY SLOT THE WORLD MIGHT END) but it makes general social interaction a bit easier. Thanks! I'm doing Business & Entrepreneurship, it's a Bachelor of Arts (fancy) but in my hometown (less fancy, way less stress than moving away). I actually deciced on it back in January, it starts in September which is so soon god help.
  6. My life was depressingly not impacted that much by lockdown, I work from home a lot so with the reduced hours from my clients, I mostly just caught up with some reading... I'm planning to go to college in autumn, which I think was accidentally the best plan I could've made - I decided to go in January because I was fed up with my work and once corona hit, the work shrank to such a low level that I'm really grateful to have student loans as a plan B, as it were. What a world we are living in.
  7. Try posting this in the MCRmy Swap & Shop thread: A lot of us still have the email alert set up, if you share your listing on there it'll get a lot of attention. 🙂Oh how I wish I had 500USD and a record player.
  8. Hey Rachel! I thought my country was being a bit... irresponsible in its messaging. You guys have it on a whole other level. Are you still working at the animal shelter? At least you get to say hi to cute animals as part of your job!
  9. Hey! Okay bear with me because I have NO IDEA how to do photos on this platform. I'll take some photos tomorrow and PM them if that's okay?
  10. Hahaha I hate any machine that requires active language choosing. Those little infographics might be annoying but give me language option and I'll ruin everyone's day. Things are starting to open up here, I think gyms are reopening but I don't think I'd use one for a while (not that I do anyway). It's nice to feel a bit more 'normal' though.
  11. Shamlessly rebooting this! I have an MCR hoodie from 2011/2012 that doens't fit anymore. It's the PILL hoodie with Party Poison's logo: https://www.depop.com/xotiac/my-chemical-romance-pill-hoodie/ (that's not my listing). It's got some marks on hence why I'm not selling, just asking buyer pays P&P. If anyone's interested, I'll take some photos and find out the size. It's hugely comfy but actually swamps me, so I thought I'd offer it to one of you guys.
  12. I've been getting a lot done! I really need to exercise more because my joints are starting to creak from all the sitting down (hadn't realised I must have been quite active pre-lockdown, just walking around and stuff) but I've used most of my lockdown time well given how HORRIBLE AND STRESSFUL the whole thing is. I've cleared out clothes, tidied cupboards, caught up on some reading... ... and will continue to do so because I've got a vested interest in staying alive.
  13. Twins I might watch The Hobbit again with my brother. I have actually read the book, but I'm not particularly invested in it. Sometimes the source material just means too much to you... also, a tiny wee book probably shouldn't have been stretched into 3 films. Respect to the production team and everyone who worked on those trilogies though, holy shit.
  14. I was thinking about going out out the other day, not that I go down the pub that often, and the thought of being around so many people made me actually quite nervous. Possibly because a lot of people in my area are acting like the virus never happened... I hope I don't go backwards in my social skills, though, I was bad enough before...
  15. Slow motion is the best way of putting it! I feel like a snail. In a good way?
  16. I feel like it's a side effect of lockdown. I have to think twice as hard to use my conversation skills...
  17. I've never seen Hamilton, I've heard so many good things though. Maybe one day the theatres will reopen and I'll have the money to spend on it! (I know they have the TV version now as well but I dunno, I'm happy to wait for the Real Thing). The Return of the King (Turned out I hadn't retained anything from the films, it had been at least 15 years, I have virtually no memory of The Hobbit - book or films - and despite this, my last book was hugely influenced by Tolkien, I just didn't realise at the time.) (Also, banging battle scenes. Epic. Excellent.)
  18. I have literally nothing interesting to say, but I felt like I hadn't popped in to say hello for a while or, more accurately, popped in, couldn't think of anything to say and left so here I am saying hiiiii
  19. The Two Towers (Haven't seen LOTR for at least a decade; had forgotten... everything.)
  20. Me tooooo I've actually cleared out so many clothes lately, I'm trying to be more mindful with what I buy and wear and not keep anything that isn't comfy or anything that lives in my wardrobe 365 days a year. I'm challenging myself to buy more second hand stuff so there's less carbon footprint too. I love a rummage through a charity shop and I've actually found some really beautiful pieces that I couldn't afford otherwise, like a beautiful patterned 50s-esque skirt WITH HUGE POCKETS
  21. I hate wearing a mask with my glasses! I mean, I'd hate being ill more so I suck it up, but OH GOD THE MIST.
  22. I had no idea Jane Austen wrote short stories. This week I read Holes and Small Steps by Louis Sachar - they're such capsules of excellence. Onto The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson. It's been ages since I read an epic fantasy but so far it's pretty good.
  23. I might be... do you have any photos anywhere?
