The 21 Most Unbearable Things About Studying In The Uni Library

Studying in the uni library really shouldn’t be this hard.

1. Actually feeling inspired to get some work done, only to arrive and discover you’ve forgotten your student card.

2. Or not being able to get in simply because the barrier won’t let you through.

3. Spending more time looking for a free seat than actually revising.

15. Getting distracted by absolutely everything.

People walking past, music coming from someone’s headphones, the graffiti on the desk in front of you.

16. And realising you’ve been listening to someone else’s conversation rather than working for a good ten minutes.
