We're senior coed level 3. This is a video of my old squad competing at the same level, so you can have an idea of what that actually means.

Spot where I get hit in the face.
Amazing! How long did that routine take to practice?

UEA seems great. I don't think I could move to Norfolk though.

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

I can recommend it. The campus is lovely, it's a good part of the world and the Angels are lovely. Why couldn't you move to Norfolk?

I don't actually know...I guess I just don't know much about the place.

Yay team! Nice routine. How popular is cheering as a sport in the UK? I know there's an international grouping each year at the championships in the US but wasn't sure how serious the competition was to get to there was.

They have good taste in concrete

My brother and his wife did their PGCEs there, too. It's a nice city, but I'm not a huge fan of campus universities, at least not to that extreme.

The concrete isn't that bad! Yeah, in the centre of the campus it's ugly as sin but there's also a lot of green, a lake and anywhere with more rabbits than Laura has missed serves can't be that bad

Vote, vote for Robbo. There's no limitations on voting. No wonder One Direction wins these awards. Their fans refresh the page every second.

Re: The Sofa: for off topic chat.

Indulge me. Back in her junior days Laura was sometimes credited on draw sheets as "Laura M. Robson". I've never come across her middle name on the web. What does the 'M' stand for? Marie? Miranda? Myrtle?
