15 Things You’ll Miss About Being a Student In Cardiff
You have spent at least three years in Cardiff and it’s now time to say goodbye to the city you’ve learned to love. Although you’re ready for a new adventure, you know you’ll miss plenty of things from the capital of Wales.
1. Shopping in Lidl.
Even when you were extremely broke, Lidl never let you down. You wish you could take the shop with you when moving away from Cardiff.
2. Partying in Live Lounge.
You will forever miss Live Lounge with its free entry, cheap drinks and good music. It gave you the opportunity to party even when you couldn’t afford it.
You actually don’t know how you’re going to survive without this student sporting event. You will miss proudly wearing the colours of Cardiff University and ferociously trash-talking Swansea.
4. Getting drunk in the Taf.
You will be nostalgic about the nights you spent in the Taf drinking cheap pints of beer whilst watching football or rugby.
5. Spending some time in Bute park.
You will certainly miss the BBQs organised in Bute Park to celebrate both the end of your exams and the arrival of sunny days.
6. Welsh food.
A life without Welsh cakes… unthinkable.
7. And the Welsh language.
8. Living in Cathays.
As a student you surely lived in Cathays and have many great memories about this particular place. After university, you won’t stop thinking about the good time you had living there.
9. Exploring Cardiff Bay.
You might not like these scary birds right now. But someday, you will realise you actually miss seeing them in the streets looking for food to steal. You’ll start to hear them even when they’re not around.
11. Filming crews on campus.
You can’t believe you’re leaving the place where Sherlock and Doctor Who are being filmed. You won’t be able to show off to your friends any more.
12. Studying in ASSL library.
Once away from Cardiff, you will nostalgically remember all the time you spent in the Arts and Social Studies library trying to figure out your way, or fighting to get a printer first.
They might have been a bit annoying at the time, but you got a lot of free sweets.
14. Reading Gair Rhydd.
15. The weather.
Joking. You won’t miss the rain.
