Being a student is a serious business. You have parties to go to, drunken-texts to decipher and new hair-styles to try out; not only that, you must shop for post-it notes, cue-cards and highlighters otherwise known as ‘doing research’.
Certain skills must be acquired and honed; such as learning to make it through your early morning Thursday seminar without letting on you have a hangover.
“Tito’s dissertation is due. He has set himself a target this week of writing 10,000 words.
So far, he has written 3,500 words, but mainly in the form of passive-aggressive notes to his housemates reminding them who drinks goats milk and why.”
"It’s enough to make Peter and Jane choke on their watercress sandwiches." – The Independent

That time before the horrors of speed-bumps, automated supermarket checkouts and infernal switchboard options; the days when telephones had wires and a reassuring rotating dial, a tweet meant birdsong and Brexit might possibly have meant a new kind of breakfast cereal?
Fear not, for you are not alone. What you need are the new manuals for our times, simple primers for the everyday predicaments we find ourselves in.
