1) Complete boredom
Sat wondering why you ever decided to take your degree is completely normal. The one thing that really lets university down is having to work and sit in lecturers. Imagine if there was a place that was exactly like university just without the university part… The things we’d do for that
2) The I’m going to complete all my assignments tonight feeling
Every first and second year will go through this hour of madness. You’ll be given an assignment and say to yourself ‘it’s the first thing I’m going to do when I get back’. You’ll get in, tidy your desk up, get your laptop out, open word up, write the title and decide that you’re too tired and need a nap. Next thing you know its 9 o’clock and your housemates are banging on your door ready for a big night out on the town.
3) Pure anger (usually a Friday afternoon lecture)
We all have that one lecturer that loves to teach right up until the final minute. This will then follow up with pure disgust
4) Pure disgust
When the anger wear’s off because the lecturer say’s “any questions” and you know, the end is near. The pen drops into your bag and the zip slides up, you can feel your bed calling. Then suddenly, a hand is raised and mark asks a pointless question. You fall back into your seat as if someone has shot you and this feeling of pure hatred/ disgust is suddenly focused on mark (We all hate you Mark).
If you don’t experience this at least once a week, are you really a student? Ending up down chippy ally just hours before your physics lecture eating chips with curry sauce telling yourself you’ll be fine for that dreaded 9 am lecture. Getting up and into the shower you feel good. As soon as you hit that seat you’re regretting the crate of Strongbow dark fruits mixed with 1000+ VK’s that you’ve just spent your whole student loan on.
That feeling when your eyes are closing, you know that at some stage you’ll wake up dribbling all over your textbook with the lecturer asking you a question.
As students, we all know that food is precious. Without food and shots of Sambuca, what would we do? You’ll always be hungry in a lecture, no matter what time of the day. Mark will be sat over in the corner, enjoying a nice chicken wrap whilst conquering up a plan to ruin everyone’s day with another shit question (we still hate you mark).
8) Why did I even bother?
There’s always that one lecturer that will make you turn up to every lecture just in case something changes and you miss out. But every single week, they’ll stand there and read off the power point that they’ve already put up online…
9) The how can I get out of this feeling
We’ve all done it, sat there thinking of an excuse to tell your lecturer why you need to leave… Whether it’s something like; you’ve left your straighteners on or that your cousins girlfriends brothers best friends hamster has hurt its leg.
10) The I need a drink feeling
You’ll have this feeling every day during your final lectures. If this is the case, make sure you get on UniNights to find your perfect night out ready for that hangover feeling in your 9am
