21 Bad Life Choices That Are Far Too Easy To Make At University
If you’ve ever been to university you’ve probably found it all too easy to make some bad life choices at one point or another. Here are just a few of them.
1. Not writing any notes in a lecture because you wrongly assumed it would all be on Blackboard.
2. Or deciding to skip a lecture just because you know you’ll be slightly late and you don’t like doing the awkward latecomer creep into the lecture theatre.
3. Going to the library to work but spending the majority of the time there on WhatsApp complaining about how much everyone is annoying you.
4. Or deciding that you can reasonably take a break because you wrote two whole sentences.
5. Choosing the longest essay title to contribute to the word count, regardless of whether you actually understand it or not.
6. Or not writing the bibliography alongside the essay and losing the page number for one of your crucial references.
Good luck finding that again.
7. Highlighting the important parts of a text and later realising you’ve basically highlighted the whole thing.
8. Or using up all your printing credits on an essay before discovering several mistakes in the first paragraph alone.
9. Joining loads of Facebook groups in first year and then being forever harassed with notifications.
But you can’t leave because you have serious FOMO.
10. Going to careers fairs and taking more of an interest in the free pens than in actual useful information.
11. Or spending all of your student loan as soon as it comes in without really knowing what you’ve spent it on.
12. Leaving food in your room over reading week and thinking it would probably be fine.
13. Or putting off all of your reading until the break but then reading literally nothing the whole time.
14. Saying you’ll only watch one more episode of something before you start working but you end up watching an entire series.
15. Or going to the shop to buy essentials and coming back with nothing more than stuff like this:
16. Risking glancing up in a seminar after purposefully avoiding any communication for a long time only to immediately make eye contact with the tutor.
17. Or discovering that someone you got with on a night out once is actually on your course.
18. Spending more time preparing a study timetable than actually studying.
19. Or taking loads of books out of the library but not reading any of them until someone requests them.
20. Thinking that you could definitely make it to a 9am and benefit from it even though you stayed out till 5am.
21. Or that you could feasibly leave writing your essays to the very last second without coming close to a nervous breakdown.
