Here’s To Every Student Who Literally Can’t Live Without Cereal

Before you came to university, cereal was probably just the relatively uninteresting stuff you ate for breakfast.

Nothing more than another part of your morning routine.

And you probably thought that being a student wouldn’t change this.

But you were wrong.

So, so wrong.

Because at uni, cereal is everything.

You’re hungry at a weird time of day or night? You have cereal.

You’re stressed about revision? Cereal is there for you.

Not sure who to be friends with? Observe their cereal etiquette.

Really though, your love for it knows no bounds these days.

There is joy in discovering the branded versions are on sale.

And genuine heartbreak whenever a milk-related emergency occurs. 

Not only is it incredibly versatile. 

It also allows you to assert your newfound independence. 

Which might become a bit of a problem whenever you go home.

And let’s not underestimate the importance of a freebie.

People will say that you’re obsessed.

Or that you’re only eating it because you don’t know how to cook.

And that eating a different cereal at lunch than you did for breakfast doesn’t make it OK.

Cereal is life. 

So enjoy it while you still can.
