Getting SMS spam dead or alive!
no other words for it - a rant.
There is a third way they get your number Emma. Technically they don't have it on a list, that is a common myth, the reality is they just text and call random numbers. Random except for the first digits (the area code). The only way to stop it ironically is to get on their list, - their list of "do not call" numbers, often by texting the word STOP, but I'm sure some of them just ignore such requests. I know from a Watchdog program earlier this year that some claim to call from companies that in reality do not exist and are just a cover. Personally I sometimes aim to give them what they want: a customer who has paid PPI for years and desperately seeking help... but only to find out who they really are. Then with my online researching skills I can find out much more and use the law to hit them so hard... I also made a customised computer generated voicemail message which I have recorded as a comment here. I hope you enjoy it!

Life or University?
I'm quite happy studying life. It's certainly cheaper than any structured learning. The problem as i see it, is that in this counrty & i suspect many others as well. Is that the system is set up to more or less force you into college & university as a teenager. I'm not saying that nobody studies as a "mature" student, but they are in a small minority. We are channeled into studying early & then going into a career. We need a complete rethink, imho. Perversely, the current financial problems may well allow some people to make career changes they would never have had the chance to make otherwise.
Great topic... Well, first of all, it's never too late; I think you should go to university now and study something that truly interests you just because you want to, not because it will pay off in a career. And, truly, at any age, that's the only reason to study anything. My own educational journey had a few starts and stops. I took a couple of years of before going to college the first time, then when I did it was to study film & broadcasting - a degree I never finished. I went a few years later again (at 27) to get a degree in Politics, then went on to get a Masters in Public Policy, which is pretty much related to the career I subsequently had in the nonprofit sector. But more important, it was an opportunity to learn how to learn; to explore different ways of looking at the world, analyze options, and arrive at my own, better-informed, conclusions about the way things are, or should be. Your points about someone in their late teens or early 20s having no idea who they'll be later is so true. The ultimate educational system would require four years of work, then a year of study, then four years of work, then a year of study, and so on throughout one's life. I think we'd all be better informed and happier in a situation like that.
