Because from here on it’ll only be essays keeping you up till 6am, leaving you looking like this every time.



2. Collect enough posters and flyers to fill every bit of wall in your room.

3. Pub Golf.

4. Gain at least 100 extra friends you’ll never speak to again on Facebook.

5. And tagged in at least 500+ photos. Mainly drunken.

6. Invite your friends from home to visit.



7. And visit them at their unis.
