    Next City review I'm looking for is Sheffield.

    Looks like if Liverpool Uni reject me, I'm gonna be off long term to a new City for the first time in my life. Maybe I'll just decide to go somewhere other than Liverpool regardless...

    Sheffield’s quite nice these days by all accounts. Busy bar/pub scene. Though I never cared for the city centre much personally (it’s kind of an odd layout) it has everything you need.

    My advice would be to move somewhere, get as far away from Home as you are comfortable doing then double the distance. ;) - talk to anyone who stayed at or too near home when they went to uni and you can almost guarantee that’s near the top of their regrets list.

    The main reason is you can't rely on your parents to bail you out. I was a 2 hour~ drive away and it definitely helped in making me more independent.

    Guarantee that regardless of your current feelings, you'll want to live alone once you're done with first year. The freedom is great.

    According to google (driving time) I'm 2 hours from Leeds and Sheffield, 1 hour Manchester and like 10-20 minutes from Liverpool.

    Well, I just got a message a few hours ago from my bank that for some unknown reason (even the people at the local branch don't know) has detected an issue with my debit card and is issuing a replacement.

    At least the procedure is the same as when they send out a replacement for a card that is due to expire.

    Depends. I buy returns for the basis that my whole journey is covered and I get a full refund if there is a train cancellation, or major delay.

    I also like flexibility.

    But, if you are short on cash, and aren't prone to travel anxiety, then singles will work.

    If you recently used it in an Chip-n-Pin/ATM, it might have detected the strip or chips got a problem.

    Remember last time the chip wouldn't be recignised by anything so got a new card

    probably a worktop oven

    Car failed its MOT. looking at a replacement.

    My want for a nice car is really making this difficult. RX8s are too much on tax...

    Don't get an RX8. It will bankrupt you.

    I can't afford the insurance on a golf :p

    And I'll get an RX8 in the future. Just not right now because I can't afford them.
