15 Times F.R.I.E.N.D.S Summed Up Your Final Year at University
Final year is pretty tough, with all the dissertation stress and future plans to think about. But the thought of everything coming to an end is worse.
1. When you came back from summer to start your final year, feeling ready to smash it.
You’re excited to be back and probably feeling pretty confident about your final year.
2. Because after two or three years, you’ve definitely got this uni thing down.
Okay not totally down, you still word vomit in your essays and make an idiot of yourself in seminars.
3. You understand your course and subject inside out and you’re totally ready for the big wide world.
You’ve made it this far after all.
4. You try not to think about the fact that in a matter of months it will all be over.
5. And you’re not emotional about uni ending at all, anyway…
6. You and your uni friends might start getting all soppy and sentimental about the past few years together.
7. But it’s important that you focus on making the most of the last of your student days – this includes a lot of student nights and eating out, or shopping with that precious student discount.
Plus, you’re cherishing the last of that student loan.
8. When you realise that you do actually need to work over your Easter and Christmas breaks. AND Reading Week.
It’s final year. Reading Week is officially for reading now. 🙄
9. And there’s still that one flatmate who can’t stand the mess of living in a student house.
10. But none of you can bear the thought of living without each other.
Mess or no mess, you’re a team now.
11. When exam and dissertation time rolls around and you can’t put it off any longer.
I’m not panicking, you’re panicking!
12. You get down to your last couple of months as a student and it dawns on you that you’re leaving and you’re going to have to get a proper job.
Suddenly all the studying, deadlines, and essays don’t seem so unappealing.
13. A lot of people will start giving you advice about what you should do next.
You didn’t ask for the advice but you’ll smile and nod politely anyway. Until it gets brought up for the 1000th time.
14. You might have to move back home and you’re torn about it.
The fridge will be full and the rent will be free, but you’ll really miss your independence and living with your mates.
