We Asked These York Students About A Time They Needed The Force To Save Them

To celebrate the release of The Force Awakens, and all things Star Wars, we asked you tell us about a time you really needed the Force to be with you. Be it an embarrassing moment on campus or the treacherous drunken walk home from town, there are definitely times in a York student’s life when you could use a little help. Here are 15 of them…

1. “The time I pulled the emergency chord in a disabled loo on campus thinking it was the flush. I had to run away before anyone arrived…”

2. “I was late for an essay hand-in and had to find my inner parkour skills to leap up the library steps to print it. I shocked so many people. They didn’t even know I owned the Adidas trackies I was wearing to make the sprint finish.”

– Dan Underwood, English Literature student

3. “When I was so drunk I fell down the Willow staircase and couldn’t get back up again. I had to be hoisted up by my friends and was so bruised the next week that people asked questions…”

4. “The time I walked into a seminar, sat down and then realised I was in the wrong room. The tutor stopped and said to me ‘we haven’t finished yet,’ which confused me because I thought we’d only just begun… And then it clicked that I had to leave.”

5. “In my first week, when I got trapped in Kuda for 45 minutes because I couldn’t find the exit and was too embarrassed to ask…”

6. “…And then I ventured to Efe’s with 24p and begged for food – at 4am. Efe gave me the remnants of some potato wedges and told me to ‘remember him in the afterlife’. I really will.” 😍

7. “When I woke up with cheese AND gravy all in my hair (presumably drunk me couldn’t resist Oki’s). It was just the most Northern hangover ever. The struggle was too real that day.”

8. “Cheers to that time I got far too fabulously drunk on a few Bolli-Stollis and needed the Force to get me home.”

10. “When my drunk friend got rejected by two taxi firms because he was so pissed and then he threw up in front of a bus. So I had to walk him all the way home from town. And he lives on Hes East.”

11. “I was on my way to a seminar and had to take a detour around a massive group of geese. There were at least 40 of them. As I turned around one of them began chasing me! There was nowhere to go! I sounded so stupid trying to explain why I was late for my seminar. It was scarier than it sounds I promise.”

12. “I needed the Force with me when I fell backwards down the Kuda staircase… I spent 25 minutes begging to be let back in and trying to convince them I wasn’t too drunk…” 

– Sean Humphrey, Accountancy and Finance student

13. “…And when I had to beg Barclays to increase my overdraft, because I’d spent £200 for a cocktail to be named after me in Revs. I was hammered. My life’s a joke.”

14. “When my flat mate threw up and got us kicked out of a taxi and we had to walk all the way home WITH NO SHOES ON. When we got home she screamed until we agreed to put Gossip Girl on… Definitely needed the Force to carry us through that night.” 🙉🙉🙉

15. “I needed the Force when I decided I was going to take the Willow sign after it closed. At first I thought it couldn’t be done, but then I thought: Do or do not. There is no try.”
