21 things students secretly enjoy

You may well pretend to all your friends that you hate going to the library, but we all know that as soon as their back’s turned your nose is straight in a book taking a whiff of all those pages…

Here are 21 things we know that students secretly enjoy:

1. The day your student loan comes and you moan that now you actually have to go food shopping, but really you’re just excited that you can finally restock supplies like cling film, crayons and silly string…

2. When you seem annoyed by the fact that your lecturer made you book an appointment at the careers office, but you’re really getting kicks at the thought of all the free pens you can fit in your bag…

 

…guys…i think i might have a problem… #penthief #icantgiveanyofthemup

3. When you have less than a penny left to your name but in your complete state of denial, try to print off your assignment anyway and wha’d’ya know…you have the exact number of printer credits left on your student card…Oh. So. SATISFYING!

4. When you ditch a lecture and can’t shake the feeling that you’re a secret evil genius…

5. When your whole class needs a particular textbook to complete an assignment and you get hold of the last copy in the library…

6. When you tell your housemates you won’t be able to help with the spring clean because you’re stressed and really need to work on your critical reflection, but really you plan to lie in bed all day and fester in your own body odour…

7. Not reading any of the materials your lecturer told you to read but still managing to contribute because you watched the TV show when you were 12…

8. While everyone’s bitching and moaning about that ‘lazy’ professor, you revel in the fact that he clearly can’t be arsed to read your waffle and just skips straight to the ‘B+’ grade…

9. When you wake up late and think you have to dash to your lecture, only to see an email explaining it’s been cancelled…

10. Getting free doughnuts from the Christian Union but running away before they invite you to church…

11. Walking all the way round campus 20 times at Freshers Fayre just so you can claim enough free food vouchers to last the entire semester…

12. Buying something really fancy and extortionate – like smoked salmon or asparagus- from the most expensive supermarket because you simply ooze with sophistication…

13. Asking for a student discount absolutely everywhere…

14. Eating food straight outta the saucepan because no one’s done any washing up in like three months…

15. When your parents say they’re coming up and you know they’re going to take you out to dinner when you’ve been living off of frozen peas all week…

16. When you find out two of your housemates got together and the gossip is just too much to handle…

17. When the real, legit vodka is on offer and you and your mates don’t have to neck supermarket own-brand paint stripper…

18. And then waking up after a wild night with absolutely no sign of a hangover…

19. Reading week!

20. When you’ve been pushed to the edge of your sanity trying to decide what you want to write about for your dissertation, then, the idea slaps you in the face like a cold, wet fish…

21. But nothing beats the feeling of handing in your dissertation like…

And it’s not until you’re thrown in the deep end of adulthood that you realise just how good you had it…
