12 Things No One Tells You About Being a Third Year at University
You’re finally a third year. Those mythical students who manage to do the most important academic works of their degree while also partying like freshers.
Third years just have their shit together.
1. You know who your true friends are and it is great.
Ain’t no body messing with your clique
2. Coffee becomes your life support
Even if you didn’t like it before, you’ll develop a need for frequent doses of caffeine
3. Regular nights out are a must
Otherwise the amount of work you have to do will send you insane.
4. But wanting to stay in and do nothing is ok too
This is third year, nobody pressures you to do stuff you don’t want. And sometimes you just need to let your body catch up on sleep, food and bad TV.
5. Everyone becomes an emotional wreck when it comes to dissertations
Even the people who seem calm on the surface are probably having a major panic on the inside. Try and keep your head and remember it’ll all be over soon(ish).
6. You started the year determined to be organised and promised yourself you’d submit all your assignments early
7. But it doesn’t take long for that to fail. Like everyone else you will end up panicking about everything at the last minute.
If someone seems calm around deadline time, they are probably lying to you.
8. You still won’t understand some of your lectures
Some may as well be in a different language.
9. Your mission to get to know everyone before you leave doesn’t exactly go to plan
Still not knowing who half your year group are is ok – some people just aren’t meant to be friends.
10. You’ll feel incredibly wise in comparison to freshers
Like the Yoda of your University, you should try and impart some knowledge on them before you leave. Just don’t embarrass yourself.
11. But you will also feel very old compared to freshers, which is not great
Why do they all look 12?
12. You’ll wonder why people are asking you what your plans for the future are
I DON’T KNOW YET WHY DO YOU NEED TO KNOW!?
Do we have to graduate?
