16 Conversations You’ll Have To Endure During Reading Week

Catching up with people when you go home for reading week is great. But there are some conversations you’ll wish you didn’t have to endure.

1. Being asked if you actually have reading to do.

3. Having to explain that you’re not at home because you dropped out.

“Yeah…it’s great but you’re not really missing anything…”

14. Lying to your parents when they ask if you’ve taken any photos at university for them to look at.

“You haven’t taken any photos whatsoever?!”

16. And convincing yourself and everyone around you how much harder you’re going to work once reading week is over.

“I promise.”
