1. The job hunt is a quick one because you pretty much have zero expectations.

You are only here for the money.

2. But at least telling people you’re studying for a degree makes you seem more capable than you probably are.

3. University has taught you to be resourceful though, so you’ll probably be fine.

5. It starts off OK. You’re being paid. You don’t hate all of the people you’re working with.

13. And you promise yourself you’ll never complain about the odd 9am lecture ever again.

Not after early starts, long shifts and late finishes all the time. 😫

15. And you end up being more excited than ever to go back to uni.

16. So that you can spend all of the money you just earned.

Until you start all over again next summer… 🙈
