I'M JUST PACKING MY TRUNK, I'VE GOT MY UKE, AND A JAZZY BOWL, AND SOME NAILS WITH A HAMMER. LEAVING THE PICTURE OF MY MISSUS AT HOME. FUCK, WHERE'S MY HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPOS?
Can anyone who had a Che Guevara poster at university ^this this post?
biggest student cliche
for my 18th birthday (height of chimp love) my friends got me one of the pg tips chimp as che guevara and i am wearing it right now and aw man... viva la johnny vegas.
what's you are point there spaceman?
But I suspect around 15-20 people (at least) who have read this thread are hiding the truth.
Come on admit it, you had a Che Guevara poster you cliche!
I have posters for Jules et Jim & Tristana. That's pretty cliche, isn't it?
oh i should have put this below. whatever man
wish that article had come out a year earlier. First year would've gone so much better.
Thankful that I've already been to uni so that my naive young self didnt stumble upon this before going and import Bulgarian cushions to decorate the impromptu chair I would make from the trunk that we sat on playing drinking games.
Can relate to "Don’t wear your heart on your walls" though...the guy next door to me in halls put a high school musical sticker on his door before I met him. I made sure that conversation was unsurprisingly brief for the year
she believes rubber bands to be essential to the university experience. To keep the Che Guevara poster rolled up in a drawer maybe
Not that I'd ever have done such a thing, obviously.
The Telegraph is doing life wrong.
Um..except us here now obviously...
It took me some time to persuade my mother that it was unlikely that I'd need a milk jug and sugar bowl at uni.
What did you have on your walls in your Fresher Year?
I had a large poster of the front cover of Surfer Rosa and a smaller Stereolab Switched On! screenprint
1xLOW gig poster
1 drawing an ex-gf had done for my 18th birthday
A poster of Kurt Cobain
A poster of Zippy from Rainbow
which my mum bought me as a joke, but I kept it in the cupboard as I thought the LOLs might be lost on most people who entered the room.
I had surfer rosa too, transferred from my bedroom at home so I'd drawn a bra on the lady.
like a gazillion postcards (art prints not ones from ma gap ya)
I thought it was well cool at the time (I wasnt a fresher but it was my first houseshare)
recommended as a surefire way to repel the opposite sex
and then as it was 3 for a fiver I bought this poster purely as I remembered seeing it in a pub toilet on holiday years before: http://cache2.allpostersimages.com/p/LRG/10/1044/MZ4L000Z/posters/oh-shit.jpg
I also had one of those 'day planner' sort of calender poster thingies that I picked up for free in the student's union. I've never really done any work at all in the time since I last had one of these.
Not as a student but what you have on your bedroom wall http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4250891
I DIDN'T GO TO UNI.

Might as well clear your desk now
