It’s a nerve-wracking time. Of course, that’s the last thing you need to be told – with manic last-minute packing and enrolment to worry about, you already know. And perhaps you have an inkling of what Freshers’ Week will be like too. But, like many things, it’s hard to know until you’ve actually done it.
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.
Your stomach gurgles. The PowerPoint presentation flickers before your eyes. You try in vain to write some useful notes, but to no avail. Is it Fresher’s flu? A hangover? Maybe.
But then again, maybe not.
