I mean, what’s not to love?

1 
The day after bin day resembles a zombie apocalypse. Every week. Accept it. Beware

2
You WILL get dive-bombed by the devil seagulls that circle Cathays. They hate students and are on a mission to end us all.

3
The closer you live to Café 37 the better, because you WILL spend a shameful amount of hungover Sunday mornings there crying into your mammoth breakfast.

4
The cashpoint next to Salisbury Road Tesco is the best thing that’s ever existed because it gives five pound notes and everyone knows that’s amazing.

5
You spend the first month of living in Cathays mourning the loss of big Tesco as it’s now nowhere near you. Even though you never went anyway.

6
Statistically it must have the highest concentration of letting agents anywhere in the world. Surely nowhere can beat 7 billion letting agents…

7
Walking over Cathays train station steps, pissed, to get to the Lash every Wednesday is like playing a game of Jenga with your life. But you do it anyway.

8
The few streets that always have a kind of… herbal smell. You know what we mean.

9
The SU/AU elections every year are kind of a big deal. Think US presedential election but more elaborate. With bed sheet signs out of every window and Donald Trump dressed as a pirate while Hilary Clinton gives you a free pack of Haribo if you vote for her.

10
You will fall in love with everything about it (even the scary seagulls and questionable smell).

Keep exploring
