19 Reasons Why Christmas Is Actually The Worst Uni Holiday

It’s not a real holiday if you’re expected to revise during it.

1. You get home to find your family have put the Christmas tree up without you.

I’m sorry, what?

2. And the first thing your parents ask you is “how’s uni going?”

3. You’re expected to buy presents for all your fam now you’re “an adult”, but you haven’t had a loan instalment since September.

4. Going back to your part-time job at Christmas when there are sales, last-minute shoppers and overtime is beyond painful.

It’s chaos, and the Christmas playlist wears thin when you’re there for hours on end.

5. As Christmas Day gets closer, the relatives start arriving and you’re forced to give up your room so one of them can stay in it.

6. Everyone being around is distracting when you’re trying to revise and make a start on your reading list.

7. And you spend most of the time resenting the fact that you can’t get fully into the festive spirit because you have January exams looming over you.

Even snow is a distraction now. Being a kid at Christmas was so much better.

8. At some point your parents will comment on how little work you’re doing.

9. Which will later be followed up with a contradictory comment to the effect of, “stop locking yourself in your room to do work, come and be social with your family.”

10. Your parents will ask you to help prep food for the Christmas dinner, and you’ll show off just how poorly you live at uni.

Because you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing.

11. You have to see your family members a bit drunk and very embarrassing.

12. And there’s always that one extended family member who makes ~jokes~ about how uni isn’t worth it

They did just fine without going, apparently 😊😊

13. It’s an absolute mission to get everyone together for New Year’s Eve.

Especially if you’re trying to organise something with your uni friends who all live in completely different cities.

14. And generally it’s the holiday where your home friends are least available because everyone’s with their families.

15. Then suddenly it’s a whole new calendar year, which makes you realise just how little you have your life together.

ANOTHER year? Graduation soon then.

16. You definitely won’t be returning to uni looking your best.

As if anyone goes to the gym at Christmas. Plus, there’s amazing free food everywhere.

17. And you know going back to your freezing student house and packing away all the Christmas decorations will be a bit sad.

Such an anticlimactic way to begin exam season.

18. You begin to panic about how little you achieved with your time off.

19. And ultimately, you just need another holiday to deal with the stress of January exams.
