25 Phases of Freshers

25 Phases of Freshers

1. All of your worldly possessions are packed in the car and as your parents drive away, you stare longingly out the window at your childhood home, desperately fighting back tears like a scene from a cheesy movie, inconveniently neglecting the fact that you’ll be back to visit in less than four weeks…

2. You think about all the strange, unfamiliar people you are about to meet, and how many times you’re going to have to introduce yourself and make small talk over the next week and your parents literally have to drag you out of the car…

3. After a massive drama and near domestic dispute with your parents, a flatmate pops round to say “Hi” and you hit it off immediately, completely forgetting that less than five minutes ago, you were claiming no one here would understand you and you already knew you would have to go home…

Via Giphy.

4. You and your new pal lose your inhibitions (and some of your dignity) at your first Fresher’s event. You make even more friends who, contrary to your belief, seem to understand you and now you feel like a prized diva for your drama-fuelled antics and hope that no one will remember…

5. And then you prepare for the next one…

6. In the space of a few days, you’ve woken up fully-clothed on a random floor with no idea how you got there, who any of these people are or what happened the night before…

Via Giphy.

7. Miraculously, you look pretty fly in some of the snaps you got caught in…

8. While others are a plague upon Cyberspace…

9. You hit the Fresher’s Fayre hard and sign up to every single club, but fail to go to a single society meeting…

Via Giphy.

10. You briefly endanger everyone as you attempt to tackle the kitchen…

Via Giphy.

11. You also discover that hygeine is not so important to some as it is to others…

Via Giphy.

12. And no matter how hard you try, things in the kitchen never seem to go to plan…

Via Giphy.

13. So instead, you give up, and decide to order take away…

Via Giphy.

14. You meet someone horrendously beautiful on a night out and immediately start planning for your future family…

Via Giphy.

15. But when you wake up and can’t even remember your name you realise you were probably being a bit hasty…

Via Giphy.

16. You miss your friends so much that you feel half you is still stuck back home in your parents house. You skype them to catch up on the gossip and are shocked to find out they’ve been getting on just fine without you…

Via Giphy.

17. You are then overcome with an intense feeling of homesickness and MUST talk to every single one of your contacts IMMEDIATELY…

Via Giphy.

18. You sit through an unofficial parental lecture where they tell you Fresher’s is not all about partying- “You should get a head start on the reading and explore the local area”…

Via Giphy.

19. You unintentionally make a few enemies when you were completely bladdered the other night, and now you hope and pray that you never see them again…

Via Giphy.

20. In a severe case of the “Beer Goggles” you share an awkward kiss with someone who looks like Rumplestiltskin…

Via Giphy.

21. And from that night on, you see little Rumplestiltskin everywhere you go…

Via Giphy.

22. As the week draws to a close the realisation of the hard work that’s in store hits you like a tonne of bricks…

Via Giphy.

23. You try catch up on the reading before your first lecture but soon decide it’s a lost cause…

Via Giphy.

24. But your new best homies offer a helping hand and set you on the right track…

25. You turn up for your first lecture feeling completely refreshed and ready to go after the most mental week you have ever experienced. Well done- you made it. Now prepare for the time of your life!
