13 Thoughts Everyone’s Had Whilst In The Templeman
The source of all our wisdom, our greatest ally and friend, the Templeman Library is at the heart of our campus and helps us complete our essays and cram for exams, day in day out. The Library itself is home to over one million documents and is a true lifeline to a lot of students who are too broke to buy books and living in housing too raucous and rowdy to allow for studying. All hail the Templeman library! This modern-day Kentish fountain of knowledge isn’t without its flaws though and we’ve all picked up on them at one time or another… Although hopefully some of these worries end up being mere bad memories once we all start using the new extension!
1. This place is just far TOO BIG!
With daunting east and west sides like some gang ridden American town and an unnerving four floors tall, the Templeman is a giant maze. Rumour has it Crazy Hands now works there because he walked in once and now can’t get out.
2. Bloody people having fun on the grass outside.
We’re trying to work here! Our future is more important than your game of Frisbee.
3. It’s hotter than hell in here…
…and it stinks! Why is the temperature never right in this place?!
Classmarks just make life more difficult, you’ll just have to wander around until you stumble across the book you need.
5. So done with these stairs.
Arriving on the top floor of the library like an exhausted panting dog because you’ve taken the stairs is common. Plus they’re only wide enough for one person at a time, fantastic.
6. So done with this lift.
Straight out of a horror film, the dark and rattling lift in the library is nothing short of a death-trap/lawsuit waiting to happen.
7. Screw work, what we need is coffee.
Oh how we love you Library Café.
8. WHAT DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE WORDS ‘SILENT AREA’?!
Take your pointless phone call elsewhere!
9. Is it too soon to go get more coffee?
You’ve done 15 more minutes of work and think you deserve another break and maybe a muffin (or two).
10. How long does it take to do some building work?
The library update will seemingly never be finished and we will forever have a unique library with its own builder’s workshop.
11. What kind of monster moves books and then doesn’t put them back?
There’s a place reserved in hell for these kind of individuals (you know who you are).
12. Act normal or someone will write about me on Yik Yak.
Please don’t target me. I don’t need the whole of Canterbury knowing I’ve come to the library dressed like a slob.
13. Why are there never enough seats in this place?
There are either no seats or your only option is to sit next to some guy with the grimmest cough ever. Thanks Templeman.
