6 Stages Every Student Goes Through When They Get Back to Brighton
We know what it’s like; you longed to come back to Brighton to your independent, student lifestyle, but you can't bear the thought of uni and having to look after yourself again. You just can't win.
But don’t worry, we got you – here are the 6 stages that every student can relate to when getting back to Brighton.
1. You ruin your life on your first night out back in Brighton.
9 vodka-lemonades and 3 tequila shots in, and you’ve kissed two questionable lads, text your ex saying ‘are u okay xxx’, thrown up in the grotty club toilets and you’ve lost your friends. We’re off to a good start.
2.You swear you won’t do it again, but surprise surprise, you continue to ruin your life.
You’ve only been back in Brighton a week, and you’re on your 5th hangover with very little memory of the night before. You haven’t stepped foot into uni since you’ve been back. It’s at this point that you realise you’re destined to fail.
3. You FINALLY get your life together.
You save motivational quotes from Pinterest, make a schedule of when you’ll do your work and you swear that you’ll attend every lecture. You haven’t consumed alcohol for at least 24 hours and you feel cleansed. You don’t recognise yourself.
4. By the end of day 2 you realise that getting your shit together is a lot harder than it seems.
When the lecturer announces that you’ll have a ten-minute break in the middle of your lecture, you accidentally leave and never come back.
5. You suddenly feel a surge of motivation.
You know this motivation won’t last long, so you act on it ASAP. By 2am you’ve finished some coursework, made flashcards for your upcoming exam, and smashed out a bulk of the essay that you’ve been neglecting. If only the motivation would last.
6. You feel like you’re getting somewhere, but the sesh calls…
You swore you’d have a quiet Friday night in, but you haven’t been out for all of 2 days, and after all the work you’ve done you decide it’s time to treat yo’self to a bit of Friday I’m In Love. It had to be done - but you've ruined your life yet again.
And the cycle continues, at Friday I'm In Love.
