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.
1. Actually sleeping.
Think you can work, have a social life and get 7 hours of pillow time? Think again. If your Thursday was thirsty, then say goodbye to your Friday night fever.
2. Which makes you miss your excessive student holidays and free time.
Whilst being a student felt, at times, like an unpaid full time job, your Summer-long sabbatical made it all worthwhile. Whereas now all you have is annual leave, which is as depressing as it sounds.
They were either the Bonnie to your Clyde or the crumbs in your butter. Either way, even if you secretly hated one of them, your housemates were the dysfunctional family you wish you had.
4. And the student nights, of course.
£3 quad vods are a thing of the past. Your student card says so. So does your alcohol tolerance. But you don’t miss looking like this…
5. Being missed was always nice too.
Now that you’re living at home again, the novelty of having you back is gone. Your dinner, laundry and washing is all served up with a side of resentment.
6. Being late is no longer an option.
And apparently being on time is actually being late?!
7. Being okay with not knowing what you want to do in life.
This was passable when you were a student, but to other working grown-ups, you kinda look like this…
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.
But at least you have money now. So there’s that.
