So, they are going to stock the fridge for you?

No, I don't think so -- they give us a shelf, we buy stuff to fill it with. The trouble is I don't know how big the 'shelf' is!

Oh, I see. Can you ask someone?

I think it depends on the accommodation you get allocated -- some will be better than others. It could be that they give me one of the bad ones where you don't get a fridge at all and have to share a bathroom with 40 other people... but fingers crossed that doesn't happen.

Will they let you take a look at your accomodations before you get there?

I hope so. I think I will generally be happy with most of what they can offer (unless it is literally the worst one). Worst case scenario I will have to live with my parents for a bit -- but that does mean they'll take some of my maintenance grant away which is not so nice.

Hopefully, it will work out for the best. I understand you will be by yourself at least?

I told them I didn't want to share with anyone so they'll have to offer me a single flat or studio or something. I'm not sure what happens if they run out of singles though, maybe I would have to share with someone. Thankfully I have a friend also going to UCL who I might be able to share with but I haven't talked to him about that.

I wonder what all those girls are doing right now. I deleted all of their numbers from my phone -- no sense in keeping those.

I admire your sense of detachment about those numbers. I kept numbers for decades.

Did you ever call them after that amount of time?

I am getting the hang of detachment, I just worry if one can be 'too' detached...

One called me after 7-8 years. What a treat!

She called to tell me how thoughtful I am!

After we had some type of weird breakup I still sent her a card on her birthday. After 7-8 of them she finally called to tell me what a thoughtful person I am.

What a rare treat for me! What an amazing tactical error by her.

Why did you send them?

Because she had given me a lot of pleasure and I still had feelings for her.

We talked for a long time where I got to ask and say all the things to her I never got to say to all the rest of them. They were smart enough to not ever give me the chance. Wunderbar!

Oh, I see. She just called for that reason alone, nothing more?

I figure she wanted a bunch of things but I would not give her anything that she hoped for. It made her belligerent which always is the cutest thing about them.

No, just kidding. She wanted me to ask her for a date.
