Grandparents want to visit university flat Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
I’m the easily embarrassed type and as much as it would be nice to see them, I’d rather they don’t come into my accommodation with all my flatmates around. I’m already very shy and my grandparents- as lovely as they are- would definitely embarrass me... My parents get it and when they came to visit we just met in town to hang out and that was fun, but my grandparents are very insistent. I told them that I’d be happy to see them but maybe in town rather than at the flat because I’m shy and get embarrassed easily, but they are just like “you don’t have to be embarrassed!” Like noooo, I cant persuade them... my flatmates are great but very loud and you know, we’re all typical university students, we’ve got some kinda rude things stuck on the walls and stuff... Nobody has their grandparents over! Even parents never visit the actual flat, my flatmates usually just meet up with family in town... I’ll be so embarrassed with my grandparents over. Doesn’t help I already have social anxiety,I’ll be stressing about everything. My flatmates like to blast our music, shout and stuff. Which is fine, I’m used to it and I love them all, but my grandparents in that atmosphere? I’d die...
