What To Expect From Your First Week At University As Told By Geordie Shore
OMGEE! Freshers' Week is finally here and it IS going to be every bit as wonderful as you'd hoped... Once you've navigated that first tricky week of course.
But what's the worse that could happen? You've got a new kettle, you basically look the best you will all year thanks to an inevitable diet of sketchy-but-cheap alcopops and crisps, and you're full of hope and optimism. Just how bad can the first week of university get?
Well we can tell you from experience that living in the Geordie Shore house is basically the same as halls, so… you know. Pretty bad.
Here are just some of the things all fresh-faced, dewy-eyed freshers out there should expect…
You'll meet up with some reet canny lads and lasses. Wahay! Interesting people from all over the country and who come from all walks of life. Every single one of whom will ask you what you got in your A-Levels and say some variation of, “How do you say bath? Oh, how funny, we talk different”.
Don't worry, the quality of conversation will get better. Promise.
Some of the people you meet in your first few days you're convinced will be your best mates forever – and they actually will be. It'll be just like when Holly met Char and found friend-love at first sight.
But some of the people you meet in the first week you'll be trying to give the swerve by Friday. (Err, who invited the clown? NOTHING is scarier than a clown.)
New Actual Enemies
An encounter with members of the rugby club is inevitable at some point. But don't worry - much like the dodgy kebab shop in town, they're easily avoided after that first time.
New Tashing Prospects
You'll also snog someone you definitely shouldn't. This is a rite of passage and you should not worry about it or feel bad.
You may even experiment a little. Embrace it and enjoy it.
Mostly, though, you will 100% regret necking on with someone at a later stage. This happens to everyone and is not worth your brain space. Trust us on this.
A New Attitude To Boozing
Face it now: you are going to drink. A lot. Drinks of all the colours, in all combinations. You think you are being young and fancy free but your liver and your bank balance hate you. And is the morning after alcoh-noia really worth it? It is though? Oh... never mind. Whatever we say, you're going to do it anyway.
Your drunk self really busts out all the best dance moves, though. Even if there's no-one else around to see them.
New Ways To Embarrass Yourself
Just remember this, drinking too much can have undesired affects, such as making one wet the bed. (Not that it's ever happened to us. Honest.)
A New Beginning
Whatever happens, you're going to have the time of your life. Have an EPIC one. Do it.
