You can’t wait to catch up with your friends from home, you’ve got some serious nostalgia for that old man pub you used to go to every Friday night, and you reckon a change of scenery can really help you to get that essay written that’s due in January.
But what really happens during winter break might be a little bit different from what you expected…
I mean, you need at least ten going out outfits, and a few things in case you just go to the pub, and something to wear on Boxing Day at Auntie Betty’s and what if you end up going sledding? Better bring an extra jumper. And a hat. And four pairs of gloves.
Expectation – You’ll get to see sooooo much of your mates!
So you’ll do a night out the first Saturday back, brunch on the Sunday, a shopping trip midweek, cinema, drinks on Christmas Eve, swap presents on Christmas Day morning, and obviously catch up on Boxing Day…
You can’t wait to tell them that hilarious story about the night at the student’s union with the yoghurt, and oh my god they will just love hearing about the crazy guy who lives on your floor, and what about that time you forgot your library card?! So.Much.Bant.
The pub you always used to go to, the one club in your town, the shopping centre – you’ve missed it all so much!
A fully stocked fridge! Dinner consisting of more than just a Pot Noodle! Not needing to wear your bobble hat to bed!
Expectation – After the New Year festivities, you will definitely, definitely get loads of work done.
Seriously. You’ll definitely get that essay finished before you go back to uni. Definitely.
You need to know the gossip about Laura’s friends from home and what Sarah decided to get her Mum for Christmas and whether Jamie really did dump his girlfriend the week before Christmas.
