16 Struggles You’ll Only Understand If You Commute To Uni

Commuting to uni has its advantages. It’s just a shame that those advantages don’t really outweigh the struggles.

1. The stress of commuting at rush hour for a 9am while your friends who live at uni only have a 10 minute walk.

2. And having to carry a heavy bag everyday because you can’t nip home between lectures for things.

3. Or finding out your lecture has been cancelled after you’ve arrived.

4. That moment when you realise you’ve forgotten something important and you have to decide between being really late or unprepared.

5. Or you hear a delay being announced and you’re no longer sure it’s worth going into uni or not.

7. And you tally up how much time you spend on public transport per week.

13. Or people who are just out for the day and are actually happy to be there.

That’s nice. ☺️ I’ll just be on my way to my exam. ☺️
