Its good doing both. Engineering is good, you can work in the office all day if its too hot outside, or pouring rain. Surveying is good too cause it breaks your day up nicely. I suppose I could go for a double degree or something. But I'd like to be finished with uni by the time I'm 50 years old

I wouldn't be relying on them much. Dad has a business in Melbourne at which I can do a few hours of work a week at. I'm earning a full time wage at the moment, so If I've saved enough, its really only House Rent I may need help with.

It comes out on June 20, I believe. A live album from their appearance at NearFest last year. A complete set.

EDIT - here's the link.

It's not near any of the train or tram lines, so to get to it, you have to transfer to a half-dodgy bus service.

This is one reason why I love Melbourne University - it's so easily accessible, what with about eight tram routes terminating at it and another five running within a block of it!

Next semester is my last of undergrad, then I have Honours, then postgrad should take 4-5 years, then I'll work there.

If my father doesn't shut up about me getting a job, I may just be interested!

Well see thats mainly why I wanted to Study in Bundoora. The tram just right next to it! Plus I'd have someone to help out with rent. The city wouldn't be too bad. And I'd have to live within walking distance or not too much further for Croydon.

Ah, right, so you're going to live on the route 86? That's a damn long tram line from Bundoora into the city, but if you live part of the way along it, that wouldn't be an issue.

I'd say probably the most accessible uni in the city is the city campus of RMIT - about ten tram routes on Swanston, another handful on LaTrobe, and then Melbourne Central railway station over the road. But you wouldn't catch me dead at RMIT.
