The Ghost The only sign of this person is their unattended notes on the desk reserving their territory. There's no sign of them hours later when you leave. There's rumour that the ghosts don't even exist. Instead they're a cruel joke invented by malicious librarians.
In case you're wondering, 4 hours is an acceptable amount of time to wait before you draw phalluses on their belongings,
The Social Media Butterfly They arrive to the library, spread out their notes and check their Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and Yik Yak. Once that's over they'll check-in online and tag all their friends then post photos of themselves revising hard in the library. You secretly hate them for taking up a seat but it's hypocritical to Yak about them.
The Nerd This person is the personification of every nerdy cartoon character you've ever seen. Glasses or no glasses, they not only know the library staff by name but get invited to their staff do. They bring their own laptop and in the final week leading up to exams they'll bring their own table and chair. Do not try to compete with this student, they will stay longer, revise harder and achieve more than you can ever dream of. But if it makes you feel better they have 0 Yakarma points and even less of a social life.
The Night Owl Why does the library open all night? Surely no one is revising at 3am? Surely every sane person would be in bed at that time? Surely no one is so sadistic that they would revise during a time the entire country was sound asleep?
You are surely wrong. The night owls arrive when the last nerds are leaving and cram their way through the wee hours. A rare breed, they only frequent the library during the crunch week before exams. The other 50 weeks of the year they're found drinking 90p shots and making you question how they go into university in the first place. You envy their commitment and ability to cram, but also hate the bastards for getting decent grades with only one week of revision. As Chandler would say, hell is filled with people like them.
