Whether it’s your first year or your fifth, being at uni lends itself to days full of unanswered (and unspoken) questions. Here’s a list of 10 questions you’ve probably already silently wondered about since you arrived at the University of Essex.
1. Where’s 5N.4.what?
Seriously, how the hell do I find this room? Pretty sure I’ll be using Find Your Way for the rest of my degree.
2. How many years of sleep have I lost?
Pretty sure I’ll never recover from freshers week. Thank you, coffee; you’re a life saver.
3. Can I adopt Pebbles?
He is Campus Cat. That means I’m allowed to keep him in my flat, yeah?
4. Do I really need a degree?
Honestly, I could make a great housewife.
5. Is this cheaper at Tesco?
You guys, 65p makes a difference when you’re at uni.
6. How long can I put off laundry?
Can I wash it in the lake? Because that shit is expensive. See no. 5.
7. Did I get on the right bus?
Yeah, you thought you knew. But you’re six stops past Tesco and don’t know how to get back.
8. Why am I still awake?
It’s five a.m. on a Tuesday. Where are my shoes? Whose flat am I in? I think I have a nine a.m.
9. Why didn’t I move to Australia?
Someday I’ll see the sun again. I hope.
10. Is it socially acceptable to have Nando’s three times in one week?
Asking for a friend.
