2. Craved a Ta Med Da dinner when suffering through a particularly bad hangover.

4. And scarred by Super Teams.

6. But still been angry when they closed it down.

8. But still turned up to the union for the free chips at half time.

9. Got lost in Hugh Owen at least once.

10. Spent many a night in Hugh Owen basically living out of those vending machines

11. Procrastinated in the library by staring at the view.

12. Arrived at a lecture sweaty AF because you didn't leave yourself enough time to tackle Penglais hill.

Holy fucking hell I managed to walk up penglais hill in 15 minsish...I didn't know I was capable of miracles but pls refer to me as messiah


14. Got excited when they opened a Tesco Express in town.

My dad to each family member / guest / visitor: "Have you been to the new Tesco in Aberystwyth yet?" Followed by a debate about escalators.

15. But have joined the locals in being extremely pissed off when a new chain coffee shop opens.

17. Been pissed off that there's ridiculous number of Polly/Ollys in town but no Topshop.

Still annoyed that Aberystwyth had no Topshop. What uni town has no Topshop? Poor students.

19. Had to decide which of the 108349585 sunset pictures to delete off of your phone to make room for more sunset pictures.

21. Had a Death Star from Cambrian and immediately hated yourself.

You know it's lethal when the bartender makes sure that you've eaten something before you drink it... #DeathStar #Aberystwyth

22. Gone to Baravin and Libertine and thinking you're posh when in reality you're drowning in your overdraft.

25. Danced to Mr. Brightside in Pier Pressure.

26. Bought two VK's in Yokos and honestly thought you were a baller.

27. And regrettably ended up at Lip Lickin'.

Not even been in Aber 24 hours and already thrown up in Harrys, tripped in Pier and scoffed a whole lip lickin.
