Cheap lolz, swashbuckling romance and essay crises

Jenny is a frighteningly bright Philosophy student, Tim is her flirtatious slacker of a flatmate. Come here to follow the life adventures of these two absolutely not stereotypical Cambridge students. You'll learn very little in the process, but I'll get better at watercolour.

The Great University Lie

The trick is to convince all the kids around you that university is really really hard and you do lots of homework and read books that are bigger than them and never ever watch TV. Also when you go to university you can't bring your Playmobil! It's University Rule Number One: NO PLAYMOBIL ON CAMPUS.

Then let the little brats cry themselves to sleep and get Peter Pan complexes.


  1. J'avoue, ça me rappelle un épisode quand j'étais petite (vers cinq ou six ans), et j'avais rencontré une cousine au 25e degré qui m'avait dit qu'elle était à la "fac" (waaaooooooou la fac!). J'avais visité la Sorbonne quelques mois après je m'étais dit que plus tard, j'allais étudier là (un peu comme Sarko a du se dire "un jour je serai président").

    Beware of what you wish for, you might get it, n'est-ce pas? -_-

  2. Nice post. I am learning your lovely language.
