    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

    13. Got a little bit too drunk off of 60p vodka shots in Harleys and thought you could win the T-shirt challenge.

    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.

    16. Used the microwave in Spar to microwave your Rustlers burger and were gutted when they got rid of it.

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

    20. Spent an absolute age trying to decide which Cambrian cocktail to have.

    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.
