Your first year has flown by and you’ve only just about got used to ‘adulting’, right?
Whether you left halls at the start of lockdown or are returning to collect your belongings it's time to kiss your uni halls goodbye and return to the family nest. Some of you may be more excited than others about that!
However you feel about it, here are 5 things every student will miss about #studentlife when leaving for the summer break:
Even though you’ve messed up your sleep schedule beyond belief and are used to having pre-breakfast snacks at 3am you cherish the freedom you have. When you head home for summer you might question if you're a prisoner when your mum won't let you leave the house at midnight to get a Chinese.
- Nights out
You’ll miss being excited in lectures for getting dolled up, heading straight to pre-drinks after devouring a four cheese pizza to spend the night making memories with your mates – and as rough as you feel the next morning. Nothing comes close to being sprawled out on the sofa questioning what actually happened last night...
- Lounging around in pyjamas
Staying in pj's all day every day is the norm at university, and no one will ever judge you for living in your bear onesie for 2 days straight. Whether you’re hungover or living in the library the night before the big deadline, pyjamas are the greatest comfort for any student. Don’t be surprised when your parents insist you’re too old for onesies, they just don’t get it.
- University campus
Being able to roll out of bed straight into lectures is one the biggest benefits of living on campus. You've come to love your new home so it'll feel strange not waking up next to the bar, library and even lecture halls over summer. How will you cope without your morning Starbucks?
- Your flatmates
You say you won’t cry when you give each other hugs goodbye before leaving for summer, but you know you’re going to miss your closest friends who’ve stuck by you through thick and thin. They’ve learned how to make you a perfect cuppa, and have been a shoulder to cry on when you needed it most.
