15 Things You’ll Miss About Being a Student Once You Graduate
They say that being a student is the best time of your life, and there are definitely some things that you’re going to miss once you graduate. Here are just a few…
1. It being appropriate to do all of your work in your pyjamas.
Sadly, PJs are not acceptable office attire.
2. Being able to have a lie-in almost every day.
Getting a real job will make you realise what an early morning really is and how much you miss sleep…
3. Knowing that you could go on to campus dressed like a total -5 and no-one would care.
Now people judge you for wearing clothes that you haven’t washed in three weeks, jeez.
4. It being socially acceptable to count three coffees and an energy drink as breakfast.
Guess it’s time to start being healthy and stuff.
5. Being able to make meals consisting solely of carbs without anyone judging you.
Pizza for breakfast anyone?
6. Not being frowned upon for constantly going out despite telling everyone you had no money.
Apparently now you’re an adult you actually have to start saving.
7. Feeling like it’s an achievement to be stupendously hungover.
Somehow spending the morning with your head in a toilet starts to feel a little less appealing as an adult.
8. Living with all of your besties and having the rest of them just down the road.
It’s just not the same now you’re all spread around the country.
9. The really long holidays, longer than you ever dreamt of at school.
What do you mean real life doesn’t include five whole months off for summer?!
10. Getting student discount on literally everything.
And excusing your stinginess with ‘Oh, sorry, I’m a student’.
Student discount is the absolute best, don't know what I'm gonna do next year without it😳😬

11. Getting your student loan instalment every term and feeling richer than ever.
Having to work for the money appearing in your bank account just isn’t the same.
12. Being able to procrastinate before almost every task and yet still manage to get them all done.
Full time jobs just don’t give as much free time as university timetables do. Ugh.
13. Studying and learning.
You might not think it’s true now, but you’ll miss them when they’re gone. Exams, however, can stay in the past where they belong.
Is it weird to miss neuroanatomy lectures? Because I do

14. Having a whole university full of opportunities, clubs and new people at your fingertips.
Cheesy, but true.
15. And finally, the carefree easiness of not really needing to know what you want to do with your life.
Because no-one else at university knows either.
Despite all the stress and pain you’ve caused us, Uni, we’re gonna miss you big time.
