As the exam period draws closer, many Leeds students are once again spending the majority of their days hunched over a desk in the different libraries situated around campus. An inevitable result of this, is boredom: and one student has taken her procrastination to a whole new level by spending eight hours planning a holiday with her so called ‘library boyfriend’ – an unsuspecting male who isn’t even aware of her existence.
The Whip caught up with Sally Socket to get the low-down:
“So, I’d been staring at him from across the library for at least a week, but we didn’t properly click until we made accidental eye-contact. He blushed and looked uncomfortable. God, he just looks so cute when he’s uncomfortable.
“Anyway, after that I waited until he got up from his desk and followed down to the café. On the way back, I held the door open for him and I swear to God he almost thanked me. That was when I decided I should take it to the next level.
“I’ve spent all of today planning our first holiday, but in all honesty, I’m worried it might have been a waste of time. He’s being so off with me… we haven’t made eye contact for at least two hours now. I guess this is our first argument.”
Miss Socket explained that she’s started peering though estate agents’ windows to catch glimpses of potential first homes, and is worried that – whilst she’s always wanted a big family – her new life partner, whose name she’s pretty sure is Rahul, might only want one or two kids in a more traditional nuclear family.
Next week, Socket intends to plan their messy break-up before a heartfelt reconciliation in which the hopeless romantics fall into each other’s arms and declare that nothing can keep them apart.
Sally is on course to fail the year.
