Bristol University Teen Wins Award For Dirtiest Student Home
Ah, university. For some, the one time in your life where you can get drunk any and every day of the week. If you live or have lived in student accommodation then probably know the familiar smells and sights after a big night.
Essentially, there's shit everywhere.
For two years when I lived on campus, I learned to never venture into the common room or kitchen after a big university night out because I didn't want to make myself sick.
I'd see half-drunk bottles of spirit spilt onto the table and floor, pieces of people's clothing, pots and pans piling up in the sink and maybe even a half-eaten kebab.
Luckily, though, we would all come together and clean it up while nursing a pretty bad hangover. I was always wondering if my experience was worthy of an award for being just generally foul and bad for my health.
While I'll never be able to find that answer, one teenage woman has.
Brittani Cooper and her flatmates have been crowned as the residents of the dirtiest student accommodation in the UK.
Have a look at her flat and see if she outdoes yours:

But if the 19-year-old wants to start writing her acceptance speech, she'd better thank her dad, who was the one who told her about the competition.
Brittani, from Gloustershire, told the Metro: "He sent me the link to the article as a joke because he knew that my housemates and I didn't exactly keep our flat the tidiest during the past year.
"I decided it was worth entering with some images of our very messy kitchen, and now I'm so happy I did."
If you're wondering why anyone would want to be crowned with this accolade, well it comes with a cheeky £500 cheque. Not bad for showing off how filthy you can be.
Her dad is asking for half the prize money, given that he was the one who made Brittani aware of the award. But she says that won't be happening, as she explained: "I'm going to use it towards decorating my new student house for my second year. I'm aiming to keep my new home a lot cleaner."
Yeah, let's hope.
