8 Things You’ll Miss Now You’re a Working Graduate

You thought you were over being a student, until you got a full-time job.

8. Freedom.

But most of all, it’s the independence without all the responsibility of adult life that you really miss. You’ll often catch yourself think why you ever complained about that one 9am lecture a week you had to get up for.
