You’ll do anything to stay warm.
1. You don’t have to worry about putting food/beers in the fridge because the house is cold enough.

4. You have to mentally prepare yourself to get in and out of the shower because it’s so cold.

7. It’s impossible to dry your clothes after you’ve washed them.

11. Then your laptop crashes mid-essay.
12. You realise you have no idea how a boiler even works.
Yep. Definitely still not an adult.
13. Everyone else gets really jealous of that one flatmate who has a really thick, woolly blanket.
14. You even start to miss living at home. At least there it’s warm.
15. The person who got the biggest room now regrets it, as it’s also the coldest.
16. You try to type on your laptop but your fingers don’t work.

17. You wake up so late and the sun goes down so early that you become completely disorientated.
