1. Having one week dedicated to drinking and meeting new people.

O-Week was a pure gift.

2. Taking a cheeky 11am, 2pm and/or 5pm nap, every day if you wanted.


Can't do that at work unfortunately.

3. Staying up super late and sleeping in.


4. Sleeping literally anywhere.

Library, lectures, grounds of uni... you name it, someone's done it.

5. Skipping class because you can't be fucked.

Unfortunately you can rarely skip work because you don't give a fuck that day.

Have you tried doing that at work?
