So, you’ve started University. You’ve done Freshers’ Week, met some new people and (hopefully) had a good time. But when the real stuff kicks in (i.e. work) you may find yourself coming back down to earth with a bump. You might realise that something is missing.
It’s no secret – plenty of people wouldn’t be able to get past the morning without a good cup of coffee. But making coffee at home isn’t always great; if you’re a fan of the java, you’re probably treating yourself to a Starbucks whenever you can afford it.
We have all been there. It is still early in the evening, maybe six or seven. You are sitting at your desk, ready to finish your paper. Well, not really.
You are not really ready to finish, or anywhere close. You are not even sure that you are ready to start. You know that you are going to have to do an all-nighter, but you are trying to convince yourself that if you start now, you will be done by 2am. Or 3am.
But who are you kidding? You are going to be here all night long. So you need to stock up on some snacks that will actually make you feel good about the pathetic situation you have put yourself into, yet again.
If you’re like me, you tend to experience a tonne of stress and anxiety in the run up to a big exam. A certain small amount of stress is good; it keeps you on your toes and shows you care! However, in excess it can lead to lack of sleep, poor appetite and prolonged bad moods, which can all have negative impacts on your exam performance if not dealt with head on.
Don’t get me wrong – I have some good memories from Valentine’s Days past. But now that everything red, pink and fluffy is appearing as soon as Christmas is over, Valentine’s Day seems to be getting a bit old. Unlike other holidays there is no guarantee of presents, no reason to get drunk that doesn’t involve self-pity, and no greater meaning to be taken away at the end of it all. Even if you like endless teddy bear cards, there has to be something better to do on the 14th of February than watch some non-funny rom com while waiting for an acceptable moment for a PDA.
