here it is possible to buy a library card as a community member. They
don't allow all the privileges that staff and current students get,
like interlibrary loans and all that, but it should allow you access
to the databases. My uni library card runs out next month and I'm
going to buy another one. Ok, so I'm having a baby next month and
won't get anywhere near the library for months and months, but I just
wouldn't be me without it! A "grown ups" security blanket ;)

circumstances :) Everyone promanades down Merchant's row, therefore
you have the opportunity to chat to everyone. I don't know the
cultural norms of wherever you're from, but here, people rarely start
conversations, but are usually happy to talk your leg off if you
start it. If business gets busy enough to interrupt a conversation,
get their email address so you can continue it later. Just remember
to write down which topic you were talking about!

diploma in another area of humanities simply because I don't feel
like I've consolidated those skills properly. Hopefully after that I
can go onto honours, but I don't feel prepared for it yet. The
knowlegeables on these lists are good for that. They'll talk about
sources I don't even know how to look for and can't tell if are good
or bad. I think this is a life long skill to practise.
