10 Things I Love About Being A Student


- Lie insSometimes my day starts at 7am, but most of the time it doesn't start until I want it to, I can even get up and go back to sleep half way through the day. Naps can be an everyday occurrence. 

- Freedom. But not too much. You get to live away from home and you're responsible for your own life and it's awesome. But you still get to pop home with a bag full of dirty washing that you immediately hand to mum, and then you lounge about on the sofa while she cooks up a roast dinner. 

- Staying up late on a school night. When you work full time theres no way you wanna be staying up partying the night before a shift, but when you're a student you can stay up late every night. Whether it's going out clubbing or staying up till 4am watching Netflix, even if you do have a lecture the next day it doesn't matter because it's probably only an hour, and thats if you even go!

- Summer. It's 4 months long and if you don't want/need to work, it's basically 4 months of sleeping, sunbathing and chilling with friends. And you're at home so you don't pay rent, and the food is a lot better!

- Living with friends. Living with friends is a lot more fun than living with your family. It means there is always someone around to force into going out, or to stay up have chats about rubbish, or to persuade you into a midnight ice cream run. 

- PJs & comfy clothes. Nobody expects you to turn up to a 9am looking good, so you can quite literally role out of bed, and the same with the library, especially around deadline time. Being comfy is the most important thing when studying so nobody is judging you when you look like hell, and if they are, well they're just missing out!

- Student Discount. I now resent paying full price for anything thanks to student discounts. Even if it's only 10% off, that's still 10% that can go towards food or alcohol. 

- Loan & Overdraft. Loan days are the best days of the year, even if you have to transfer it all out to your landlord the next day. The moment you check your bank balance and see it's gone in you get a feeling of pride, like you might actually have worked for that money. Nope you did nothing, but don't worry you'll pay it back eventually. The other great thing about student banking is overdrafts that don't charge you. I spend most of the year living in my overdraft waiting for my loan, yet it still doesn't stop me spending. Oh how I love you overdraft for allowing me to carry on shopping. 

- Friends. Probably one of the best things about being a student is that you meet so many people and make so many friends, and they all live within 10 minutes of you. They make uni the amazing experience it is and you have some of the best times of your life with them. Also if you're lucky you'll have friends across the country that you can go stay with for free!

- Learning. Probably not one of the things you'd think you'd love about being a student, but for me I really enjoy how life as a student means you're constantly learning new things. Whether thats related to your degree, related to your friends degree, or just general life lessons. Theres always something to learn and everyone can teach you something new. It's brilliant. 

Not a full list, but just some of the things I love about being a student. It's a pretty awesome life we lead. Let me know your favourite things about being a student, or what part of student life you wish was part of your life.

  2. Oh yes, I agree with most of these points!
    My days always start at 7 unfortunately (well 20 to 8 if I snooze my alarm!) and I don't have time for naps but I have never lived in pyjamas as much as I have this past year. It's so nice to come home to freshly popped popcorn and a film waiting to be played after a long day of lectures!

    Such a cute blog - I'm now following on bloglovin!
