Deputy Living Editor Emily Hayman challenges you to accomplish these fun and enthralling tasks. Will you accept?

So I thought it was probably appropriate to write something about finishing uni, but rather than try to pretend like any of us have any clue about what we’re doing, I thought it would be better to list off the things my friends and I would like to achieve before we’re forced to accept the uni bubble no longer has any room for us. So here you go, feel free to join us for any of these fun and wholesome activities!
