I'm 20 years old at the moment. I was born on the 2nd of February
1978, in Surrey, South East England. I lived in a place called Salfords
until I was 2 years old, and
then we moved to the sprawling Metropolis that is
Well, actually, it's more of a dingy little town in the shadow
The first school I went to was dodgily called Doods Brow School, and it incorporated the most disgusting pink uniform in the known universe (especially the cap!). It was an OK, school, I guess, but the canteen food was terrible. I even pretended that I was allergic to potatoes for an entire term so that I didn't have to eat them. They made me throw up!
At the age of 10
I got into Reigate Grammar School,
where I stayed for the rest of my schooling. Sometimes
it was a bit crap, but for the most part it was pretty good.
There were some weird teachers, but then you always get that.
There was Mr Louis, who looked like the Dungeon Master from

I took my GCSE's (for anyone who doesn't know about the English school system, those are exams taken at the age of 16) in Geography, Maths, English Language, Physics, French, English Literature, Information Technology, Chemistry, History, and Biology. I got the grades A* A A A B B B B C C respectively.
When I was 18 I took my A-levels in Maths (Pure and Mechanical),
Physics (Pure, Particle Physics, and Astrophysics), and Politics
(British, and Theory). For that little lot, I got the grades
B B C respectively. Thanks to those grades, I was accepted into Edinburgh
University to study Astrophysics for 5 years.
I'm currently nearing the end of my year out, and my job comes to an end on the 29th August 1997. I shall, then, be offline until the beginning of October, when I get my internet connection at Edinburgh. This homepage will remain, though, but it will remain unmaintained!
I finished school and decided that I couldn't be bothered with the education system for the time being. Having been in full time education since the age of 3, I decided that I needed a break. So I got a job! (all the full time workers out there wonder why!) Actually, I prefer it to school. The hours are longer, but you're getting paid for it, and the atmosphere is much more relaxed. I like it.
Talk to me!
