    When you stay up on TSR late at night because your house hasn't turned the central heating on at night - and you just don't want to strip and climb into your freezing cold bed..

    edit: Sadly, 4 years later, this is still relevant.

    - you live off soup for several weeks because you can't be bothered cooking 'real' food.
    - you start to clean and tidy every inch of your room and willingly do every chore you could possibly think of... just so you don't have to study/work on assignments/etc.
    - you have a sick bucket next to your bed, just in case.

    - when you don't recognise the strange stain on your wall and you don't want to know...

    - when you call your mum for the millionth time asking how to make cheese sauce... :P
    When you call your mom asking to put £5.50 into your account cause then with the £4.50 you have you can withdraw £10...(true story)

    When you go to sleep at 5:30am and are up at 7, then sleep during the day

    You are used to watching a broken tv
    "Cleanliness" is simply out of sight, out of mind
    Music is on constantly
    You argue with parents about the taste of alcohols (whoops)

    No way! I hate Domino's though ... Too doughy
    However it's really expensive, even with vouchers...cooking (or at least trying to cook) your own food is much better value

    You throw out a plate because you can't be bothered to wash it.

    Cold pasta with dodgy cheese is ****ing delicious!

    You find yourself agonising over whether to fork out the £2 for some lunch.

    Carry on? When was your "I am definately a student" moment?
