Ahh, the joys of a four-week, well-deserved holiday! You might expect to see your friends, get all your work done and behave yourself but that’s unlikely...

1. Easter Eggs

Expectation: I’ll only eat one chocolate egg! I'd better stay as healthy as possible before I go back to uni.

Reality: How can I stop now when the world is relying on me to not waste food? I have to finish these five and a half Easter eggs off.

2. Uni Work

Expectation: I’ll catch up on the uni work I missed when I was ‘ill’.

Reality: I can make notes any time I want. Right now, I should definitely binge-watch that new series my mate was telling me about…

3. Revision

Expectation: I’ll start revision for my exams now so I'm fully prepared for May.

Reality: My bag has remained untouched since I first dropped it when I entered the house.

4. Sleeping

Expectation: I should really sort out my sleeping pattern before those crazy nights out at uni again.

Reality: Sleep for a week? More like sleep is for the weakWhy have a sleeping pattern when I could watch Netflix all day?

Reality: I’m a busy person, they’ll understand if I can't make it…

9. Tidying

Expectation: I’ll be able to keep my room tidy.

Reality: Or I could leave that to the summer holidays, because I’m not going to be here for very long.

10. Time Management
