Re: Sense of direction

I use a gps and cross reference it to a map. Tends to work well, but I find it hard to take info from a map and apply it to the terrain.
If only OS did google street view on their paper maps…

Re: Driving test

I always wear my watch on my left wrist, but I forget my watch today, oops… I've driven about twenty miles by myself so far, but that's only if I have to. The rest of the time is with a passenger. It helps to ha...

Re: Filling in aplication forms

Make about five copies, the first two are ruff, the next three are to correct grammar. On the fifth one make it neater and easier to read, so when you come fill out the actual form all you have to do is focus on writing, and you'll be fine!! :)

Re: Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

Truly I'm an introvert, but I put out that I'm an extrovert at school to keep people off my back! Only my close friends know that it's just a show for the masses!!

I have a seven year old labradoodle, he's great since I can tell him everything that is stressing me out and he'll always listen and never tells anyone!!

Re: Fiddling things

I got my tangle in the end, it hasn't left my side since. The best £2.50 I've ever spent! I used a stress ball for a while, but my chemistry teacher confiscated it since 'I shouldve been working'!! But since getting a tangle people tend not to ask questions since they know it's there to help me. But...

Re: Suitable sports/martial arts

I like running but only outside. I go trekking a lot but my passion is mountain biking, crazy I know but it's strange the concentration clears my mind and it's the only time I concentrate on only one thing! It's a little dangerous and I have a few scars but it's quite a laugh. I have a dyspraxic fri...

I go there nearly every...
