    Lecture pad or exercise book

    i'm left handed and i use cheap a4 lecture pad books from food for less/some supermarket because they don't have the spiral, but they don't have staples either so you don't need to lean on the spiral and you can still rip the page out easily.

    Question about PEA day

    Last year I went with my parents since they drove me from Sydney and like me had never seen ANU first hand. There were lots of people with a parent, so you wouldn't be alone. You can always ship your mum off with the free coffee/tea voucher parents get if things get desperate :p

    Essential Items for ANU

    Essential Items for ANU

    if you're on the top floor they aren't that dark. in winter it's nice to have a room on the top floor cos it's sunny. though the lightbulbs in the lights aren't that great so you need to have all of your lights on to get good lighting at night.

    Food at ANU Halls

    johns food: - the chocolate mousse and chocolate muffins are great - friday night is fish and chips night - food in general is not bad with veggie options - you can always make your own little pizza things or toasted sandwiches but i'd have to agree with imsooverskool - maccas really...
