14 Things You’ll Understand If You’re a Londoner Who Goes To Queen Mary
As cool as Mile End is, it can’t compare to whichever part of London you’re from.
1. The struggle of commuting to East London for absolutely everything.
Lectures, nights out, even coffee… As awesome as it is, going to Queen Mary can feel like living in a bubble sometimes.
2. Dragging yourself to Drapers all the time in first year because anywhere else is considered ‘too far.’
Do you even go to QM if a night out for you doesn't involve spoons and drapers

3. Having to budget for an Uber home after your night out because you can’t just stumble back to halls.
You’ll probs spend more on taxis than food.
4. But you do it so you don’t feel left out.
Even though you know there is so much more fun to be had if your friends would take the plunge into TfL.
5. Convincing anyone to commute somewhere that’s more than 20 minutes away is Mission Impossible™️.
6. And if the journey involves a ‘change,’ it definitely isn’t gonna happen.
7. So if you live south of the river, you may as well be in another country.
8. And if, by some miracle, anyone does make it to your ends, they act as though they’ve crossed the Gobi Desert.
“Wow, what a trek!” 🙄
9. Especially if, heaven forbid, they’ve had to navigate the Northern line.
10. You try to make your life easier by moving closer to campus in your second year.
11. But although Dixies is great, it’s got nothing on ‘your chicken shop.’
As soon as you read that, a name popped into your head. That is your chicken shop.
