I figured i needed some space to not talk about the serious issues in my life and just try to maybe bounce a few of my other ideas and problems off you, that don't necessarily require a good answer either.

I'll introduce myself a little better first (even though its been two years and my personal problems are qutie well aired). I am 18 years old and live in the north west of england. I have just finished my A Levels and am waiting for the results currently. Hopefully i get to go to university in Lincoln in september for three years to study history.

I live with mum, step-father, and two sisters and my adorable fluffy hamster, dusty. I have also got into a new relationship round about five months ago, which is far better for me than my previous.

I'm a chronic neurotic, and i've had problems with cutting and depression which i'm slowly getting over with the help of a counsellor. I also have some issues with trust and jealousy but have recently decided that rather than distrusting my boyfriend, Dan, that i should focus the distrust on his best friend who is the one causing the problems for me.

Anyway, that's me roughly introduced. So i was just hoping this could be somewhere that i could bounce my less serious issues and ideas on you all.

That is all for now. Thank you! x

I'm sorry if I'm misinterpreting your post, but I've got no clue exactly what you mean by a "kettle." Do you mean like a tea kettle? If that's the case, I see no problem with that. Hot water for drinks and soups and whatnot is always a good thing to be able to make in a dorm room! Just check on the specifics of what is allowed in your building so that you don't get yourself into trouble and make sure that you've turned the thing off before you leave your room. [Smile]

lol yeh i mean something for boiling water! i've checked up with the uni they said its ok as long as i stick to the safety guidelines cos it just counts as an electrical appliance.

so we think its a good idea? i might buy a little pink one.

I would definitly go for it. It could be very useful, not just for tea but for instant soups and oatmeal and all sorts of other yummy treats. And a pink one? Very cute!

I agree too, having something to heat water in is an absolute must in any dorm room. [Smile]

They make a sort of universal heating thing here (North America) that my mom used when she was trucking. You plug it in, and you can put anything in it, water, canned soup, frozen stew your mom sent with you, etc, and it heats it quickly to boiling. It would work as a kettle, but is more universal. I don't know if you can get them there.. am I allowed to post a link to one?
