24 Stages of Every University Freshers’ Week, As Told By Made In Chelsea
“How drunk were you last night?” “Blind.”
1. When you first arrive at your accommodation you suddenly feel panicked about going to uni. On your own.
It’s actually happening.
2. But you try to approach it with confidence.
3. Then you say bye to your family and have to resist the urge to call them as soon as you get back to your room.
4. There is always a nervous first meeting with your housemates as everyone tries to suss each other out.
5. But you start to feel calmer as you settle in and make friends.
6. Though living with other students 24/7 is a bit of an adjustment.
7. As is drinking the cheapest vodka you can find when you go food shopping.
8. On your first night out with your flat it all gets a bit out of hand.
9. And eventually you start to bond with people.
You’re all in the same boat.
10. You party long and hard throughout the night.
11. And the morning hangover doesn’t hold you back.
There’s the rest of the Freshers’ nights out left yet.
12. It becomes a weird week of attempted fancy dress.
13. Predrinks, parties and lots of drinking games.
14. And getting the chance to try new and exciting activities.
15. Although all the alcohol means you probably lose your housemates on a couple of occasions…
16. Forget which room you live in…
17. And wake up fully clothed the morning after a night out.
18. The Facebook photos speak for themselves – you’re having an amazing time.
19. Nearing the end of the week, however, you are a complete mess.
20. And are feeling the symptoms of the dreaded Freshers’ Flu.
21. You also realise that more money has left your bank account than you expected.
Just don’t look at it again.
22. But in exchange you’ve had the best time making new friends.
23. And you’ve successfully been initiated into university life.
24. All that’s left is to make it through your first lecture.
