Familiar! Fresher’s posters to make your uni room just as depressing as your actual bedroom

By  | 

Homesickness is totally common in during your first year of university. It’s your first real experience of living entirely independently from your parents. It makes total sense to want to replicate the exact same feelings of sadness, stress and dread that you felt at home, in your new room in halls.

Here are some of our favourite posters to make your new bedroom just like home again

The movie poster for Pulp Fiction

This one is compulsory for anyone who has basically ever watched a movie, or they’ll think you’re lying and make you return that film degree. It’s also a nice reminder of the TV you used to have at home, which you didn’t realise you were going to have to exist without at uni. The film is a sexy, violent and exciting romp, just how you expected uni to be, right until you got there.

A poster with a Buddha quote

Our favourite one says, “Thousands of candles can be lit by a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases from being shared.”

You don’t even really believe the poster to be honest. Are you someone who needs inspirational quotes like this to live by? Whatever he means, you can light as many candles as you like, but you’re still going to feel a bit sad in that room.

A poster with a band you don’t even really like

Joy Division? Really? What if someone asks you to name five of their songs? Can you name any? You’ve just Googled it, haven’t you? Love Will Tear Us Apart? Yeah, that is one, but we know you just looked that up, so it doesn’t count. Tear your poster apart mate, you’re in over your head with this one.

Combine all three so you’ll feel just as anxious, perplexed and empty about who you are as you did when you lived at home. Mmm, familiar.
