As I have mentioned in a previous post, this is the first year of my life I haven’t had an educational institute to attend. It’s kind of scary, exciting, liberating and sad at the same time. This weekend I’m up in the Uni town London, Ontario, visiting friends from camp.
Reasons I miss Uni Life:
1. Student discounts
Movies, bus passes, books, Apple products.
How about a discount for people straight out of Uni who have no idea what they are doing with their lives?
2. Delicious cheap food.
Campuses always have the most scrumptious, affordable, hugest meal deals. When I was at Uni in Sydney I lived off $6.00 thail lunch menu specials and $6.00 steak and chip pub deals (including a drink). Those were the greatest and most filling meals. They have taken on the goldy-sheen of delicious meals past
Remember when you went to Tutorials because if you didn’t, you’d fail? How ironic. I miss learning things. My brain juice is slowing down and turning to mud. I need to get back into some courses.
4. Drinking EVERY NIGHT of the week.
It’s Monday? AMAZING! We’ll go to Scu-Bar. Tuesday?! Lets go to the Roxbury! Wednesday?! Oh it’s time for The Marley….
You get the gist (those are all real places we used to go to around Sydney City btw) every night of the week had potential. Now if I go out on a week night, I need to be back in bed by 1am so that I can get enough sleep to go to work the next day. SIGH.
Real life sucks.
Okay yes. I love that I’m not (always) broke. I love that I don’t have to eat instant noodles for 2/3 my meals.
I love seeing clothes I love and actually being able to buy them. I love the potential that life has before me, every day like a blank canvas.
But there are definitely things I miss. And being on campus makes those things come FLOODING back.
