    Meh. I have to sell a house in the US first, and then I'm moving to Sussex.

    Sussex! Where smiling girls in hula skirts bear fruity drinks -- with umbrellas in! -- up and down the warm, white sandy beaches of the sunny channel. That's what my fiance said, anyhow. And he surely wouldn't lie.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Visa debit cards are okay though - that way you can only spend what you've got Though since getting terribly confused as to how I still managed to go into my overdraft last term (even with some extra pocket money) I've started keeping track of my finances using Excel. It's actually quite fun, in a nerdy way

    Hiya, Stoat!

    Naomi i've had this problem every month for the last, hmm 6 months? It's always something ridiculous like 20 pounds if you go over something like 20 pence. I get confused about it every time. Don't they have overdraft protection things? What bank are you with?

    Jon, all these negative things about banking. There's a guy called Martin Lewis, he has a site I think it's www.moneysavingexpert.com or something, he knows what he's talking about, tells you how to avoid overdraft etc. He talks about it every week on Radio 2 where stupid people phone in asking something like 'I accept every advert online even if it says 'Fre3 P0rn for LIf3 OmG.exe' and my PC has found 1000000 spyware intrusions. All the messages ask me to enter my credit card details because they promise they work for Ebay and I get charged 1000 pounds every month, I don't know why.' Or something stupid like that.

    I can't even remember what I was talking about.

    Aaahhh don't remind me, I was charged 30 for going over by 5 in my Barclays Current Account :/
    I have accounts with three different banks, though the one I mainly use now is my Natwest Student Account, which (*thankfully*) doesn't charge me interest or nasty fines when I go into my overdraft. ^_^ Still, tis best to make a habit of avoiding them altogether, eh? Haha.

    Hey Alice. A good number of people living up north and posting regularly.

    Should have a Northern meet sometime.

    Good old Student Accounts, what would we do without them? Only problem though is you get into the habit of it not letting you go overdrawn, then you think that applies to your other cards, when...

    Ah, you've already past this point?

    Urm, yeah... Probably best not to make that the first thing on your list when you get your own card. You'll more than likely notice your money slowly vanish over the months from sites you... Weren't aware of...

    Anyone fancy some spam?

    Hahaha, yes _; Aww man, this makes me sound like I'm really bad with money, lol. I'm actually quite good, just that last term I invested in some big things near the beginning, like me MacBook Pro and Wacom tabby, which all came from my own piddley pocket. Should be fine this term though, considering I won't have to pay as much rent as last time!


    ......I miss not having to think about this sorta stuff.

    Not sure mate. Be nice if there was...

    As for banking I know Visa debit cards are fine, I just see it as an account card instead of a visa credit...(which I recommend no-one gets unles they are in a real nice paying, regular job)... But wait till you students leave school and your account status changes, the bastards can charge up to 39 a day if you go into your overdraft...bastards....

    oh, btw - I watched I Am Legend, and its alright; an american take on 28 Days Later, except, the 'walking dead' are in 3D... shame that, real shame....
