Just a warning.
Going to uni can be a stressful experience, but you can always rely on your parents to make things better.
Here’s the text messages that you can almost definitely expect to receive during your first couple of weeks:
When they still don’t understand your course…
… despite you doing your A-Levels and getting onto the course.

When they try and help you out financially…
… but in this case, they just play a bit of a prank on you.

When they make sure you never feel forgotten…
… because it can get lonely, y’know?

When they can be brutal…
… and just tell you to get over being broke, tired and probably a bit hungover.

When they forget you don’t live at home anymore…
… and just for a split second, you can feel your heart break a little bit.
