Posh Chavs? What are they then?

Not been back to Lizard Lounge in over a year, they've shut half of it now..
Was out with the old Rugby Captain a week ago and he was telling me how John took him into his office and broke down crying. They are losing a lot of money as the students don't drink like they used to, and just do drugs..

Dojos used to be rank, proper druggy sess pit.. But, was good to go at 4/5am..
My favourite was Tube, lots of dodgy characters in there, but never had any trouble myself..

As you come down the steps, to your right.. The steps used to be central to the club, and there used to be a room with another bar in with sofas, tables and chairs..
Was called the 'red room' used to have a picture of me and my friends on the wall as well.. Sad

post chav = over boisterous, aggressive twats, basically like normal chavs, but instead of being called tyson with a shaved head and drinking stella, they're called rupert and have a proper good quiff going on and drinking champers courtesy of daddy.

Inter-university rivalries/chanting amongst sports societies is without a doubt the gayest thing ever. I remember one of my housemates gleefully coming back from the rugby varisty and excitedly telling the rest of us how it ALMOST kicked off!!!!

And they didn't drink champagne, just jugs of vodka redbull Oops

The walls in that red room were actually wet most of the time, pretty rank.

yeah don't worry about it dude, don't think anyone could've told me anything that would've helped lol

was stuck in a traffic jam on the way into oxford set to arrive half an hour before they told me to, get a phone call to be told my interview is early, stumbled into wadham, dumped my bags and went straight into an interview on my personal statement. i'm applying for english and ended up talking about philosophy and history… i hope i mentioned some literature, not really sure what happened. was bloody strange

second interview was a poem analysis and i thought that went really well, neither of the professors contradicted my points (which everyone else said happened to them) and i felt like my understanding of the poem progressed a lot, and i think i showed it

then i bummed around oxford for a day and a half, first night went to the reggae bar down cowley road and pissed on a dead bird that was stuck in the gents loo (a pigeon, not a woman)

waiting around was awkward as fuck too. expecting a rejection cos i think i titsed up my first interview but oh well i'll just wait and see

COOL STORY BRO

everyone ignore me

Every time I try harder at working/essays etc I seem to do as well or worse than my normal lazy work, I am currently coasting my way to a 2:1 without bothering myself much (although I have notched it up a bit this term). However, I kind of want a first, particularly as I want to do a masters, so the question is do I try hard for a first and have less fun/do less, or do I say fuck it, have a good time and get my 2:1.
I don't know what would be worse, feeling like I could have got a 1st or trying really hard and still getting a 2:1.

What do?

That's exactly the same as I felt, I'd try really hard on an essay and get a 65 then get stoned and write one in an hour and get 65 too. I comforted myself by saying that all the marks are jsut one lecturers idea of what a piece of writing is worth and all lecturers have different standards, which is true, but it still doesn't change the fact I constantly got 65's. I know that my MA dissertation deserved a first, but the markers decided it was worth a 65. In hindsight I think if I'd have really worked hard I could have got a first, but after the second year of mid-sixty marks I kind of lost the drive.

Now I want to write a Ph.D but I can't find the time to work on my proposal or do huge amounts of research.
