megavideo is the enemy of productivity; cheese on toast is acceptable at any/all meal times; Thursday morning lectures after Wednesday nights at the Venue are never pretty; Moby Dick is NOT a 'classic'; takeaways, new clothes and nights out are a perfectly acceptable use of ones student loan; housework is the best means of procrastination; 20 is far too young to decide what you want to do with the rest of your life; if you're not up until 4am on deadline day finishing an essay then you're not working hard enough; impromptu nights out are always better than planned ones; international drinking rules and pub golf will inevitably result in you losing your phone/purse/keys/dignity - or all of the above; first impressions count for nothing; engaging your lecturer in a discussion as to why the Labour party are shit is a sure-fire way to make her dislike you for the rest of the term; drunkenly jumping in front of your friends camera on a night out will come back to haunt you when you check facebook the next day; Canterbury definitely needs a Primark; anyone who tells you that you can't write an essay the day before its due and get a 1st is lying; you're never too old to go running home to mummy; and just because something didn't go to plan, that doesn't mean that it didn't work out for the best.
And what did I learn about literature, I hear you cry? Sylvia Plath was a lunatic, Ralph Ellison had a chip on his shoulder, and Shakespeare was definitely on something.
£3,290 well spent if you ask me.
Love to you all!!!
