Most days, we students here at the University of Kent go through the same old, day-to-day routines. From the annoying alarm testings to the mind numbing lectures. But when it comes down to it, we wouldn’t change a typical day at the University of Kent for anything. If you go here, you can probably relate to this schedule. This is what a typical day is like for most of us students at Kent:
Get rudely awoken by the fire alarm testing, which happens every week on a specified day depending on your accommodation.
Get rudely awoken again by the cleaner wishing to clean your en-suite, only to find you in bed. She will probably judge you for having the sleeping pattern of a baby sloth.
Drag yourself out of bed and eat a bowl of dry coco pops because the milk you bought from Essentials yesterday has already gone off.
Find your way to the opposite end of campus for an hour-long lecture from a lecturer who reads off of a PowerPoint.
Pop to Essentials for a meal deal which goes out-of-date tomorrow and an energy drink to get you through the day.
Head to Templeman library to catch up on the reading before your next seminar in a couple of hours.
Arrive at your seminar room to be met by like-minded individuals with a passion for the course (everyone else will fail to turn up until the revision sessions at the end of year. Then you will find out you were in a class of 12 all along, but only recognise the other 7 that attended the seminars.)
Head back to the flat after two exhausting hours of mind-expanding discussions about your subject.
Find your flatmates and strategize for the sesh to come that evening.
Cook a nutritional dinner of fish fingers, chips and beans.
Start getting ready for the evening, shower; groom yourself to within an inch of your life on the off chance that you pull.
Begin pre-drinks with your flat in the kitchen. Message other friends to find out if they are up for a sesh and invite them to the flat.
Suitably waved, make your way down the stairs for the 3-minute stumble to Venue, queue for 15 minutes and get searched by the thorough security guards. If you’re lucky or look like a drug dealer, prepare to be patted down by a guard who is probably younger than you.
Stumble back out of Venue with your friends or companion for the night, and head home.
