22 Times You Questioned How You Even Got Into Uni
Sometimes you can’t help but wonder how you were ever allowed to be a uni student in the first place.
1. When you got to uni and realised you were going to struggle with basic things, like creating something edible for dinner or having clean clothes.
2. Every time you left your room in halls, leaving your key inside it.
3. When you promised yourself you wouldn’t leave your essay until the last minute and then you still did anyway.
Creating unnecessary stress for myself since day 1.
4. Every time you had to do any form of referencing.
5. When you were proofreading your essay and came across entire paragraphs that made no sense whatsoever.
6. Or worse, you used the wrong “its/it’s”.
7. Every time you said “I can’t go out tonight, I’m trying to save money and I have so much to do” and then ~miraculously~ found yourself in a club at 2am.
8. Or when you and your house went on a night out and no one could work out how to split the taxi fare between you without a phone calculator.
9. When you read over your drunk texts from the night before.
10. When the lecturer asked what everyone thought of the reading and the person next to you came up with an incredible theory on the fly.
More elaborate and insightful than anything you’ve ever written in an essay.
11. When your lecture finished and you realised you’d spent the entire time scrolling through Facebook.
Totes getting the value out of that 9 grand a year.
12. And every time you found yourself sitting in a seminar with literally 0 idea what anyone was talking about.
13. When you collectively, as a house of undergraduates, couldn’t quite figure out how a boiler worked.
14. When you had to start the revision for your exam with teaching yourself everything for the first time.
So now you have 100 times more to do because you never learnt it or did the reading in the first place.
15. When you were really struggling in an exam and the person behind you asked for more paper.
16. When the exam was over and you and the squad started discussing what you wrote.
17. When you showed up to one of your seminars and it felt like people were surprised to see you.
18. And you realised you put more time into constructing original excuses to skip seminars than just doing the work for them.
19. Every time you treated reading week like a school half term.
20. When you were doing research for an essay and had to regularly Google words the author was using just to understand each sentence.
This’ll take a while.
