Top 10 Things You Could Have Done Over Mid-Semester Break if Your Life Was More Together

1. Masturbate. For the entire time.

2. Catch up on those assignments you've been avoiding.

3. Catch up on all of that weed you could have been smoking.

4. Snoop through your flatmates’ bedrooms while they're at home for the week.

5. Roam around campus. Soak in the overwhelming emptiness of the hallways and lecture theatres. Dwell on your own insignificance.

6. Watch Antz (1998).

7. Wonder who let the main character in Antz ponder what was or wasn't in his "erotic fantasies" when he got rejected by a romantic interest.

8. Consider how uncanny valley the Antz art style is, and how weirdly reminiscent it is of Butt Ugly Martians (remember them?).

9. Spend the next 144 hours on a nostalgia trip that you think you are enjoying but ultimately leaves you longing for the simplicity of your childhood and how dope it would be if your assignments were making macaroni picture frames for your parents, or moulding them a clay ash tray.

10. Have an early night for class the next day.
