27 Times Being at University Turned You Into Nikki From Big Brother
Sometimes the only way to respond to your uni problems is with a tantrum.
1. When you first got to halls and everyone was on their best behaviour.
2. But it didn’t last long.
3. When you had to go to a fire safety talk the morning after a night out.
4. And you’d caught Freshers’ Flu.
5. Then Freshers’ was over and you were expected to do actual work.
6. And it was a lot harder than you expected.
7. When your seminar tutor announced you would be doing a group presentation.
8. And you kept making excuses to your group about why you couldn’t contribute.
9. When you regretted doing a group food shop with your flat mates.
10. When you thought you could get all your work done the day before and weren’t enjoying your library all-nighter.
11. And they didn’t even have all the books you needed.
12. When the exam didn’t go well, but people kept trying to make small talk with you.
13. Then you asked them what they got for a question you were particularly unsure about.
And didn’t get the answer you were hoping for.
14. When you moved into your first student house and weren’t impressed.
15. Especially in winter when you can’t afford heating.
16. And you don’t have cleaners like in halls.
17. When your best friend brought people over that you hadn’t met before.
18. And you had to remind them who their real best friend was just in case.
19. When they’d stopped letting people in to your favourite bar for the night.
20. But you couldn’t convince the bouncers.
21. When you woke up the next morning and remembered all the photos you were in at the club.
22. And you couldn’t wait for your friend to wake up so you could debrief about the night before.
23. When you weren’t paying attention in a lecture and had to hope your mate was.
24. Especially if it was at 9am.
25. Which is just really unreasonable.
26. When it was the end of term and you had to face going home and being asked about how your course was going.
27. But then you realised you never ever want to have to graduate.
It’s a love-hate thing.
