11 People You Always See In The Library
The Library is every student’s Everest. So why do other people insist on making it harder than it needs to be?
1. The one who seemingly lives there.
Always in the lift… always at the help desk… always in the library vicinity. This person usually wears flip flops and a scarf (all year round) and is just always there.
2. The one who does everything loudly and just generally disrupts you.
The loud equipment that somehow fits inside a tiny rucksack includes a microwave, extra crunchy crisps and the occasional domino’s take out.
On second thoughts, you should befriend this person.
3. The wandering waif.
You know, the one who looks slightly confused yet infatuated by the multitude of books on level 9. Their clothing usually gives the impression they are living in a different era…
4. The keen one.
In at 8… out at 8. Same seat. Different day.
5. The one who is stress personified.
You’ll come across this type on a daily basis. They are usually found hopping around the library in despair, hopelessly trying to find a free printer or crying on the stairs.
6. The dissertation dodgers.
Usually found in the vending machine queue or café areas. Will find any excuse to strike a conversation.
7. The strangers who feel the need to converse in lifts.
Particularly unacceptable at 8am.
8. The midday nappers.
You’ll find these sleepy students slumped over their desks, complete with interesting eye-masks and pillows miraculously pulled out of thin air.
9. The laid back success.
AKA the most envied student. Strolls into the library once or twice a year and writes all assignments a few hours before the deadline – casually leaves the place with a first class degree.
10. The hyper ones.
Usually friends who “study” together. They laugh. A lot.
11. And the lurker.
The desperate student who is on mission impossible – to gain a seat in the depths of the library jungle at 12 in the afternoon. This one is usually you.
