...And Four Years Later They Give You a Degree. Great.

Post by Si » Sat Mar 02, 2013 11:00 pm

I'm a 34 year old forklift driver / logistics manager (I always say the latter to impress :lol: ).

Anyways, come Monday I start my Open University course. I'm starting with 'Introducing Environment' and hoping to move onto a science degree.

I'm nervous as hell and been thinking about Mox and Oz in Norma's house watching the TV whilst OU is on. That keeps me giggling. That's what Auf Pet does :)

Just wanted to share with you guys, my fellow Auf Petters. I'm a forklift driver (Am not ashamed of it like) but am looking for a more 'outdoors' kind of thing, hopefully to do with trees and plants and things.

I think that somewhere that scene in Auf Pet helped me out. God bless that show, dammit :D

Go for it, son. You're never too late to learn - it's a cliche but also a fact. And don't listen to Oz - you don't need to get up at 6am for this sort o' tackle - just set the video man :D

And you've obviously been taking Bomber's advice from S3 - "Diggin ditches and laying turf"

You will enjoy it. I completed an honours degree from the OU back in the 90s. Everyone and I mean everyone feels the same as you do at the start, That is why they insist on you attending a weeks residential in your first year, so you meet other people and realise this.

I just looked at the Urban Dictionary and the word 'cowey' didn't come with anything relevant.

However, the word Cowie
did:

Geordie word for ecstacy. Maybe a drugs reference??

Eta: quite a few northern definitions actually :lol:
