Keep Calm and Carry On

Staggering into the Robinson Library sleepy eyed and caffeine infused, searching aimlessly for a seat. We would all like to think we could turn up at 9:00am, when the library is dead, to bag a space – but that is reserved for the hardcore only. Once you have your seat, we all have to pray…
