26 Signs You’re Not Emotionally Prepared For The End of University
All of a sudden it feels like your life is falling apart around you. It came around so fast. One minute you were loving life as a baby-faced fresher, the next you’re crying over a kebab.
1. For two (or three, or more) years you’ve sailed through university as though it would never end.
2. Except now it is ending. You have just a month left and you don’t quite know how to deal with that.
3. On one hand you want to run outside with everyone you know under our arms and make the most of this time.
4. But you also want that elusive 2:1 and really need to focus on these last exams and essays.
5. As a result, you currently look something like this.
6. You’ve learned to love your student perks.
Daytime drinking, movie nights and Netflix binges, spontaneous trips, and sleeping in.
7. The town/city you’ve spent the past few years in now has a special place in your heart.
It’s a shithole, but it’s your shithole. You can’t imagine being anywhere else.
8. You can no longer be trusted around freshers.
9. And you’re constantly reminding everyone of how little time you have left together.
10. At pre-drinks, lectures… you just can’t help yourself.
11. Nights out are starting to end in tears.
12. You were never one to get emotional before and don’t quite know what is happening to you.
13. You shut down any mention of going home.
14. And are not above forcefully stopping people from packing.
15. Because you’re just not ready to say goodbye yet. And never will be.
16. The number of hours spent reminiscing about first year has quadrupled in recent weeks.
17. You’ve made a bucket list of all the things you need to do before it’s all over.
18. And have probably turned into a bit of a Monica.
Control all the fun.
19. Some people are all…
20. And you can’t help but feel personally victimised by them.
Why aren’t they as upset as you are? Do they even care?
21. Someone brings up finding a job and it feels like you’ve been hit in the face.
22. Your CV is a joke and, despite all this time, you still haven’t nailed down a “career” choice.
23. You tried denial but that didn’t work.
24. You thought going to a careers fair or speaking to adults would help, but really all you want is three more years of student life.
25. So you do everything you can to cling on to it.
26. Spending every waking hour with the people who made it all worthwhile.
Why does this have to end?
