A miserable Third Year Playlist
Share This Article:
There are a lot of people who love going to university. It’s a great place to meet new friends, have a lot of fun, and try new things - all whilst learning at the same time. Who cares whether it costs £3,000, £9,000 or even more - these are the best years of your life. Most people have an awesome time at uni, and one that they’ll never forget. Good for them. Actually, screw them. I don’t know about you, but I’ve had an awful time at university. I’m living far away from my original home, which is clearly better than this foul place, and the friends I made in secondary school were also of a higher calibre than the ones available here. My accommodation is a rank hole, I eat worse than a 17th century sailor, and the people here speak with accents which surprise and offend my ears. I’m in my third year, and I’m sick of lectures, I’m sick of nightclubs, I’m sick of unions, I’m sick of libraries, I’m sick of my friends, I’m sick of myself. Frankly, I wouldn’t consider further study at the old £3,000 mark; I wouldn’t stay here if you paid me. I might kill myself, if I could work it into my budget. As you might imagine, I’m quite pleased by the prospect of having my ties with this place severed in a few short months. For the first time since my parents left me in a room full of suitcases, I feel like I have cause for celebration. I’ve always assumed that most people feel this way about uni - and in case you do, I thought I’d share with you a special playlist I’ve developed for the occasion. It’s twelve songs, an album of emancipation, if you will. Please join me, in the comfort of your own iPod or on Spotify, in thanking the heavens that now, we are free. Now We Are Free - Lisa Gerrard (Gladiator Soundtrack)
