  1. Reviving a really old account here to ask a question for a disabled friend. When requesting a Ride Access Pass via email, it sends you to a portal which includes selecting a ticket. Is the only way to get a Ride Access pass when using a 2 for 1 voucher to go via the ‘Island Access Hub’? Would be nice to avoid the hassle on the day with documentation. Thanks!
  2. Thanks Han! Your support has been very helpful I mostly just went through my posts on here, copy and pasted them and changed everything to past tense! It came out as a pretty accurate representation of what I wanted to say. Phew! Haha
  3. GREAT NEWS EVERYONE. I had my meeting with the accommodation team and they decided that I could move into this new room permanently and for FREE. No room move charge, as it should be! In return, I am writing a statement for them to use to confront the bully, which I'm nervous about. He'll know exactly what I feel and that makes me feel vulnerable. But, I guess we won't see any progress otherwise. I don't want him to get away with this. Just got to get moved in and settled now
  4. GOOD NEWS. I walked into the lodge today and said 'I need to be moved immediately'. The woman doesn't deal with accommodation, had almost no authority but managed to move me into an empty room (from a list of 'in case of emergency' rooms. Phew!! I told her the basic story, how it escalated last night, and showed her the picture. She was very helpful! I have to go back in on monday and speak to the accommodation staff as this isn't permanent and I might get moved from this room into another room again! But I don't care about that. I can relax for the weekend now, knowing I don't have to worry about who's below me. Interesting Pluk, I don't really know where that would go. I'm gonna bring this up with some people higher up within university, hopefully get him on some kinda of watch list or just make them aware this has happened/is happening. Bullying can lead to expulsion and, although I don't WANT him to be expelled, I want him to know it's a possibility if he carries on.
  5. Well, the main guy, the one that lives below me is actually from a different university. There are two unis on my campus. There's the sciencey one (mine) and the arts one (his), so don't worry guys, he won't be running our future. He's studying digital media. This whole experience makes me want to leave. It's ruined my experience. There's an event tonight and I don't want to go in case I see them. Just how long am I going to be scared of bumping into them at this small campus? I want to take a year out because of it. Come back next year at the same place I am now, at least then I'll have one less year with them. But my parents said no and I doubt the uni would let me do that just for bullies (rather than for an internship). Thanks for the support guys, I really don't feel like I can get support anywhere else at the moment.
  6. Well, the next chapter of my story with the people I live above... All day he's been playing loud music, I had to play my own (not v. loud) to drown it out so I could have a nap earlier. Then this evening, the whole flat were in his room playing really loud music with the window wide open, while playing computer games and shouting REALLY loudly. As in, intentionally making a lot of noise (after him getting spoken to by the accommodation, I guess that annoyed him!). It wasn't my choice to get him spoken to by the staff, I just want to move flats, that's it! Anyway, so to keep track of everything that's going on and to make it more likely that I will be able to move for free, I reported them and I think security told them to turn it down. Well, I was sat in the kitchen for a while, trying to get some peace. Then, all of a sudden, I heard some of them leave the flat talking about 'retaliation', so I ran to my room and locked myself in. They can access this flat as one of their friends lives with me. I heard them in the kitchen earlier, when I tried to go make dinner. I locked myself back in my room and when I finally got into the kitchen, I find this... A threat. Lovely. Well, if they don't move me for free after this, I will take this to higher powers. This can't go on. It's psychological bullying and it's a horrible thing to be going through. I'm not a bad person.
  7. Life doesn't suck! You just have to learn that simple things are beautiful and find which ones you enjoy. You're such a drama queen The woman dealing with my accommodation? No, she doesn't, seems like the go between for students and the department. I don't really get what her role is. She is nice though (and I'm pretty grouchy).
  8. Ohh yes, he is an absolute idiot. Not much else to do but it ignore it. Glad to be shot of him now tbh, he was selfish and his mother seemed obsessed with our relationship. I think she always wanted a girl tbh and when I came along, all she would talk to me about was shopping and handbags (AND I HATE SHOPPING). She even bought me things (I'm not being ungrateful, I really appreciated what she bought me). Not expensive things, just little bits like makeup wipes for when I stayed over. That part was sweet, she said she thought of me when she saw it all. But it just shows I reckon she was itching to do that for a daughter. But it does get weird, she would plan dates for us to go out as a three. AND HOLIDAYS FOR 'THE THREE OF US' What the hell?! No!! If it was a family holiday and I was invited along it's different. But no, the whole family wasn't involved. Just us three. And she would tell him how to 'look after me' (when I like being independent!). All this talk about 'when you're older and married, you need to be driving Ellie around, you need to look after her'. NO THANKS. I like driving myself. I like my freedom. Things started changing when I didn't want to be around his house ALL the time. My mum reckons his mother was manipulating him to stay around his all the time. Ultimately, it wasn't a great situation. ANYWAY, that wasn't what I came back here for in the first place. About the noise ***** who lives below me: I asked to move again, this time time specifying an empty room within my flat. They said they were happy to move me but would charge me £40 for it!! Because I requested it. This is after I had explained how I feel intimidated by the boy below me, who plays his music really loud. And about the texts I have received from him. SO to try and avoid the charge I've had to give the go ahead for him to be taken in to the accommodation support team to get a gentle telling off. Then we have to wait and see if it changes and even then they might not waive the fee!! Ridiculous considering the effects this boy is having. If it was because I didn't like the view or because I wanted to live with friends, I get that. But this is essentially bullying. She called it 'threatening behaviour'. To be fair to the lady I spoke to, she was really nice and understood my situation, but it isn't her who makes the decision. It really isn't fair on me.
  9. Has anyone else had to deal with bad/weird breakups? My ex and I broke up in July, his decision. I got over it but recently he's been checking up on me. He then made a dramatic post that he was still in love with his ex before me and how he regrets our relationship. Seriously?! None of it explains why he's been so persistent in checking up on me!! I think he just loves the drama and excuse to moan about how miserable he is. It's been bugging me and I can't really moan about it anywhere.

    ...Of The Year

    What great procrastination! Album of the year Kodaline- 'In a Perfect World' Song of the year Arctic Monkeys- 'Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?' or 'Do I Wanna Know?' The album came out just before I got to uni and it reminds of the start where it looked like we had a good group going. That was until people decided to create drama and stop talking and the group disintegrated. Nothing to do with me but it kinda split in the middle and the 'other side' made it hard to cross enemy lines. Music Video of the year Kodaline- 'High Hopes' Film of the year The Great Gatsby. I'm very good at immersing myself in a film but I totally lost myself in the amazing world of the Great Gatsby. TV Show of the year I don't watch much TV so you can excuse my choices... Made in Chelsea or Storage Hunters. But I watched the first 6 seasons (in about 2 weeks) of Dexter and loved it! Haven't gotten around to the last two yet as they aren't on Netflix, no spoilers! And finally watched all existing seasons of Heroes. Both awesome programs. Personal Moment of the year Getting the grades (that I never thought I could) to get into my first and only choice of University to study Zoology! And rock pooling in the first week of uni and finding loads of starfish, they're so frigging cool!!
  14. I can dream Well, I've reported him today and it's been turned down a little since I called. Considering they're a 2 minute walk away, their response time is about 30 mins, by which time they never hear it at its worst. The sex noises thing isn't an option, the sound proofing is pretty decent, you can't really ever hear much (normally) apart from shouting/screaming and doors slamming. But other than those plus his music, it would be pretty quiet.
