15 Things You Will Only Understand If You Lived In Emily Davies
Nobody understands where you live or why you live there, but you secretly pride yourself on knowing that you are living in the best halls in Southampton.
1. No one knows where you live.
And they will never know.
2. Unlike the bigger halls, you’re pretty much one big family.
And you become very patriotic. ED ‘TILL I DIE!
3. Opting for a small room and instantly regretting it as soon as you move in.
4. Or living in a twin room and feeling like a boss.
SO. MUCH. ROOM.
5. The luxury of living right next to the train station.
6. The constant car horns, because you live right next to the train station.
Congestion, can you not.
7. Only having to share a kitchen with two or three other people.
Although the kitchen size very much reflects that.
8. Being able to indulge in IKEA because you don’t live that far away.
Meatballs all day, everyday.
9. And living close to McDonalds, Oceana, ASDA, Uni and pretty much everything important.
And people still insist they don’t know where you live.
10. Watching football games in the common room with everyone.
11. Having to listen to the football when you’re trying to do your washing.
Who thought that putting them together was a good idea?
12. Having to fix your hair whenever you try to get anywhere because of the wind tunnel.
13. The weird elevator voice in Block C.
14. The smoking area being the only place you can possibly make friends.
15. Constantly having to explain why you don’t live in a house like ‘everyone else’.
