14 Times Walking To Uni Made You Want To Quit Uni
Travelling to uni can be intolerable at times, no matter what mode of transport you’re using. Here are some occasions on which walking can seem like the worst one.
1. Whenever it suddenly started raining.
You had not prepared for this. It looked fine when you left the house but now…
2. Or when it was cold outside but you were sweating by the time you arrived onto campus.
Such a great way to start your day.
3. When you were in a hurry for a lecture and got stuck behind a group of tourists.
“No, please, go ahead. Take your pictures. My degree can wait.”
4. Or when you overestimated how much time you’d need and ended up way too early.
Just think, you could’ve stayed in bed longer.
5. Whenever your walk involved a steep hill.
Why do universities seem to insist on being located in the hilliest parts of a city?
6. Or when you’d see a fellow student drive past in their own car.
Suddenly you don’t feel quite so independent anymore.
7. The traumatic moment when your phone decided to die on you, and took your music with it.
Pretending you were in a music video was all that was getting you through this walk.
8. Or worse, when you only realised you had an email saying your lecture was cancelled after you arrived onto campus.
9. When you just wanted to walk by yourself but bumped into someone you knew and had to pretend to be happy about it.
The best you can hope for is that they’ll do all the talking and you can just nod and say “yeah” in the right places.
10. Or when you spotted someone you knew, waved, but they didn’t see you.
*dies of awkward*
11. When someone in front was walking slower than you, but not slow enough for you to overtake.
And if you do, you have to walk uncomfortably fast for the next street.
12. Or whenever you got stuck behind a couple who somehow managed to block the entire pavement.
Like…can you not?
13. When you got halfway to uni before realising you’d forgotten something important.
Now you have to decide whether it’s worth turning round or not.
14. And when you wondered how long you must spend walking to and from uni.
Why does everything have to be so far away?
