1. Hygiene (optional). During your time at University, you're more than likely gonna meet people who may have never had to clean anything, like, ever. "Doesn't a toilet clean itself when you flush it..?' Umm... 2. There's No Escaping Takeaways The first week of University (food-wise) will be very much orientated around post night out fried chicken, greasy kebabs and cheesy chips. Ever heard of the 'Freshers 15'? Yeah 15lbs. In a week. It's easily done! You may well find yourself slipping into a vicious cycle of going on a night out, finishing up with some greasy goods to soak up the jagerbombs, then waking up with regret as soon as the smell wafts itself from the polystyrene treasure chest to your hungover nostrils. Mmmmm. 3. Budgeting Isn't A Thing. Managing your money will more than likely not be a priority until you've run out. An overdraft is just another word for 'free money' after all...isn't it? It can be a struggle between affording food for the week and affording nights out......Which will often lead to: 4. Basics Ranges = Your New Best Friends Long gone are the days of Waitrose and M&S...your lavish lifestyle of partying and frivolities means that money will be in short supply. This is when you'll become eternally grateful for value ranges in supermarkets <3 5. All I See Is Signs... Road signs, traffic cones and or shopping trolleys. Expect to wake up with any one/all of these in your flat, often accompanied with no explanation. Brilliant. 6. That Dreaded Facebook Notification... This one is unavoidable. At some point during your freshers week, you will be caught unawares by a nightclub photographer/ a new pal and someone WILL upload it to Facebook because - let's face it, its hilarious.FYI if you change your privacy settings, you can veto the eyesores before they go viral... 7. Attempts To Avoid Freshers Flu Are Futile The inescapable bug that circulates round thousands of students each year. You won't be able to avoid it, so stock up!! We're talking Berroca, Lemsip, paracetamol and soups. The not-so-fun liquid diet. 8. BFFs Forever! As soon as your parents have dropped you off at your halls, it's almost instinctive that as a fresher you will look for an immediate pal. Some become instantly attached to another fresher and together...try to take over the world!Some don't. 9. Fancy Dress Forget spending loads of money on new outfits - freshers week is AAALLL about the fancy dress. Where's Wally, School Night, Neon and Professions (such as Army, Police etc.) are firm University favourites, so go mad.The general rule for fancy dress is go for it. The more outrageous, the better! 10. Wearing Pyjamas In Public = A Rite Of Passage Seriously. Embrace it! It's one of the perks of being a student and only here is it socially acceptable.
