19 Reasons Why September Is The Worst Month To Be a Graduate
Unless you took a gap year, it’s the first September of your life you haven’t spent getting ready to go back to education.
1. Now that it’s September it’s really sinking in that uni is over.
You moved out and had a graduation and all that, but now you literally aren’t going back.
2. And you won’t be reuniting with all your friends this month.
3. You always had September to look forward to but now it’s just a reminder that you need to get things together.
4. And the FOMO is very real.
It feels like everyone is going to uni except you.
5. It’s so strong you consider just going back.
6. It occurs to you that uni might have been the most fun you’ll ever have.
7. And you start to wonder whether you’ll ever go out seven nights in a row again.
8. You see freshers posting in Facebook groups you’re still a member of and hate them a little bit.
9. Because you know they’re about to have the most amazing few years, whilst you’re heading to the office or trying to sort your life out.
Good for them 😁
10. You consider leaving Freshers’ Facebook groups but realise you aren’t ready to let go.
11. And you start to think about all the new people and memories all those freshers have to look forward to.
12. Meanwhile, you’re living for the weekend.
Weekends aren’t even a thing at uni ffs.
13. Timehop becomes your worst enemy.
“So excited for uni omg I think I’ve packed too much!!! Can’t wait!!!”
14. And it’s occurred to you that maybe you’re just old and boring now.
COULD you go out seven nights in a row and drink like a fresher if you tried?
15. You can’t understand how uni went so fast.
And how young you look in your Freshers’ photos.
16. You start to worry you didn’t make the most of it.
17. And think about all the time you spent doing nothing and wish you’d done more.
18. Starting uni made you nervous, but not as nervous as starting real life does.
19. Because now that you’ve lost the label of “student” you’re just an actual adult.
