I suspect that this thread is going to develop into one of these conversations where one person pretends to be two and they go on and on although they are basically by themselves. I'm watching. Some indicators are time spans between answers and the writing style.
I went to the lake district one last year and it was excellent. I really enjoyed myself, met loads of great people and I didn't want the outdoor activities to end! I learnt a lot about myself and what I want for the future. There was a lot of support from group tutors and assistants from lots of different areas.
I find it difficult to believe that anyone can go there and hate it.
Excuse me for hijacking this thread...but are these Gradschool courses any good?
I went to an afternoon skills course ran by one of the people behind the 'Gradschool' initiative. While it was very interesting and lots of good points were made - it was also heavily laden with psychobabble and ice-breaker games etc. Personally, I have no patience for this wishy-washy stuff.
While I would be interested in attending one of the three-day courses I don't really want to waste my time either.
Should I or should I not attend one?
