Perhaps I’m being a little optimistic here – this term has only just begun and for most the post-Easter period signals exams, essay deadlines, presentations, lab assessments, showcases, portfolios, performances and whatever else your department deems a suitable way to judge your abilities on a sliding scale. I’ve always preferred to look forward though, like the Mystic Meg of content writing, so here are 5 ways to celebrate the end of term.
The biggest culture shock I got when first leaving home as a bright eyed, optimistic fresher wasn’t having to do my own washing, nor the sudden emancipation from my parents, no. It was the price of ham. Luxuries like these don’t come cheap, and it’s no wonder so many students turn to things that can be put on toast – eating is an expensive habit.
It’s February, and a hefty chill still clings in the air, lingering like a fart at Christmas. A cold February, much like a Crimbo fart, is an annual inevitability – unwanted, unasked for, and something that won’t seem to go away. Eventually the air will clear (in both circumstances), and before we know it spring will have sprung, bringing with it longer daylight hours, daffodils, and Lidl’s own brand Easter eggs.
