8 People You Should Avoid At All Costs This Freshers’ Week
You’ve stocked up on Tesco Everyday Value Vodka, Frosty Jack’s and a range of hangover supplies, and you’re ready for a wild week of drunken mayhem and making new friends, before classes start.
However, there are some people it is wise to avoid in Freshers’ Week…
1. The flatmate you think is really hot.
Ask anyone; flatcest is pretty much the worst crime you can commit at university. A drunken one night stand might seem like a great idea, but remember you have to see said person almost every day for the rest of first year. It may be hard to resist, but just don’t do it.
2. The person that’s already asking you for money.
Okay, a few quid for a drink is fine and if they really need to borrow a taxi fare, that’s understandable, but anything upwards of £20, then keep this one at arm’s length. It’s Freshers’ Week – everyone’s broke.
3. The homesick one.
If you’ve moved away from home for uni, it can be really tough to adjust. However, some people cope (a lot) better than others. While listening to someone tell you how much they miss their parents for the fifth time that day might seem like a small sacrifice in order to gain a life-long friend, it gets boring … fast.
4. The really, really drunk one.
Okay, everyone gets drunk in Freshers’ Week, but there are always those that take it too far, and need to be taxied home at 11pm after vomiting in a bush. If you’re not careful, you will wind up taking care of them every night, rather than enjoying your week. At least work out a rota with the others…
5. The crier.
Drunk criers are always annoying. In Freshers’ Week, when everyone is generally a bit nervous and permanently hungover, they are the absolute worst because something always reduces them to tears. Every. Single. Night.
6. The one that is already spending time in library.
The whole of first year is for fun, let alone Freshers’ Week. Keep this person around and they will forever manage to make you feel guilty about opting for a sleep in over an early morning study sesh. Avoid.
7. The overly keen runner who will invite you to go for a jog at 7am the morning after a night out.
8. The person who doesn’t want Freshers’ to end.
Picture this: it’s Monday night, you’ve survived 11 solid nights out, and you’re looking forward to an alcohol-free, early night. But then some idiot pulls out a bottle of booze and starts pressuring everyone to ‘rerun the fun’.
