Top ten things to add on your UP bucket list

1 - Getting stuck in a turnstile and having people snicker behind you.

2 - Getting stuck in an HSB elevator and realising that having a fear of small spaces is completely rational.

3 - Having multiple summer dress malfunctions as your straps break or as your dress rides up your back exposing more than you ever wanted to show.

4 - Getting lost trying to find the maths building, Roosmaryn or really anything and being forced to ask for directions.

5 - Freezing your butt off in the Chancellors building in summer.

6 - Going to campus hungover for the first time and using Oom Gerts breakfast as a cure.

7 - Meeting that special someone at the botanical gardens for some alone time and then finding other couples there for the same reason. Awkward.

8 - Finding out the difference between the AE Annex and the AE Audit five minutes before your semester test.

9 - Having to do the walk of shame when accidently sitting down in the wrong lecture.

10 - Leaving campus after an all-nighter and finding out how beautiful campus is at 6:00.

The present moment I’m in

The peasants have risen.

I really wish that you were here with me...
