Yea, got a 2 year work visa after i graduate, (new UK overseas graduate scheme) then i can apply for a permanent one if i want to.. Planning on staying in the uk though, got a bird, a life,etc.

From my friends in the US its much much harder to find a job there, most tell me to stay here.

Enoughs enough after tonight, I've just fucked £600 of winnings on online roulette, which is a fucking fortune to me.
I know right now I feel like I never want to gamble again, but I've been here before, and I know in weeks to come I'll be at it again. Anyone else this bad for it?

Bet you a tenner you'll be back on it tomorrow!

I'm coming up to 25, so need to decide now as by the time September comes I want to be all sorted. Got nothing stopping me from jacking in work but for some reason something at the back of my mind is telling me not to……

if you've nothing stopping you, do something now. the biggest regret i have in life is not making a change in direction when I was young enough. i was telling the mrs tonight how i envied her mates daughter (if that makes sense?), she's 21 and is studying to be a clinical physcologist, something she's known for a while that she want's to do. at that age, and for many more years unfortunately, the only things i knew i wanted out of life were to fuck and get fucked.

Why would he make a poultry 75 squid off you a month, when he can make that in one bet? (if he's that good)

continuity these days is profitable.. a 'poultry' 100 members at 75 = 7500 gbp GUARANTEED.

Kenty i have been there before when i was a student i was winning and losing a ridiculous amounts on obscure games and i think i was addicted, however recently i have been placing £1,2,5 bets on accumulators at the weekend and find it alot more fun and interesting. I have stopped going on betfair altogether, lower you deposit levels right down, i know they can be changed back but it takes 24-48 hours and gives you that time to cool off and think about it.
