"We all know that warm and fuzzy feeling that going home for Christmas involves, but living in student accommodation makes you miss even the smallest home comforts. Read on for our top 9, as compiled by our current placement student, Lewis."
It's that time of the year again - the Christmas holidays! Time to wrap up warm, kick back, relax and become uncomfortably full of food in the comfort of your own home (if you managed to complete all of your assignments, that is)! Here is a list of 9 things students can look forward to at home this Christmas - things that you definitely shouldn't take for granted...
No more makeshift clothes washing (a quick spray of Febreze and wearing extra deodorant) because your clothes are actually clean, and folded!
The family norm, but after being at university it's like opening Pandora's box. No more plain super noodles and 4-day old pizza.
Granted, it was just two plates... But it still counts, right?
No nasty surprises when you open that pot of Philadelphia cheese, or when you put your hand into that loaf of bread.
No more wearing three jumpers and four pairs of socks whilst wrapped in a duvet... Every radiator works and there's even a warm towel waiting for you when you get out of the shower!
"I miss my pet more than my family"
Even after swapping stories of your daring drunken ventures and harrowing heartbreaks, the opinion of you to your home best friends will still never change.
Be it Westworld, Stranger Things, or even Emmerdale, there's no better time to sit and binge on all of those series without feeling guilty.
Not that you don't spend half of your time at university doing this... But at least this time it's warm.
