10 Signs you have a Development Studies student in your house



  1. He doesn't let not having met you before get in the way of helping himself to your beer in the fridge.
  2. He scoffs that you don't use your oven very often (No, earth child, I am not up for much roasting or baking at the moment.)
  3. He challenges the statistics on female genital mutilation or 'FGM'.
  4. Without asking, he starts frying half a bag of your pumpkin and sunflower seeds to add to his portion of the salad.
  5. Even though you've left him out a plate to use - the same type as your plate - instead, he takes the decorative bowl from the table and uses it because it 'just feels so lovely'.
  6. He is fascinated by the dish-washing practices of South American minorities.
  7. He won't touch your fry pan because a sausage has been cooked on it.
  8. He leaves more than half his beer behind.
  9. He tells you it is hard not to go to kiss you goodbye on both cheeks.
  10. If he read this, his first response would be to ask whether the image came from 'Roma' or not.

Oooo, the life of the party! Surely, he is NOT Australian?

Certainly not Australian...But I have to say, Development Studies kids defy national identities and have their own special code of behaviour. But, for what it's worth, he was from that country of maple syrup and ice-hockey.
