It’s the end of the Spring Term at university, and those all important deadlines are looming. For some, our dissertations are nearly over and we can enjoy the Summer Term with all the fun events that uni has to offer. For others, there are still exams and deadlines to meet well into the next and last term of the academic year.
Can you hear that? The cough, splutter and sneeze of the person sitting next, behind and opposite you in your library, lecture or living room… Yep, that’s right! It’s the flu season, yippee…
I know what you are thinking; the loan is quickly running out as the first academic term of the year is slowly drawing in and the worry on students’ minds of making sure they can stick to a small budget is enough to make your eyes water! It can be really hard to balance a budget for Christmas as well as leaving enough for yourself to attend those Christmas parties, roast dinners with housemates or buy decorations for your room to make it feel more Christmassy! You can easily budget for Christmas if you have little money left. A little can go a long way and it’s important to remember that it’s the thought that counts!
It is old news that toasties – particularly cheese toasties – are the typical student’s favourite snack, especially in times of need. But, when you think about it, there is nothing separating the humble toastie from the pretentious panini – it’s just a sandwich, after all...
So the new academic year is well under way and we are already being set those deadlines before the Christmas holidays approach. This does not mean you have to feel stressed or under any pressure though, being organised is the key to a happy and less stressful time at university and it will leave you feeling reassured of your deadline dates, give you time to sleep and go out and socialise with your friends as well as giving yourself to go home and enjoy time with your family.
If you have to ask yourself the question should I REALLY be buying this?! then stop right there. The answer is NO.
