18 Times ‘Peep Show’ Summed Up How You Feel About Graduating
“How do I feel? Empty? Check. Scared? Check. Alone? Check. Not ready to be a graduate? Check. Just another ordinary day.”
1. You might be feeling a little bit lost.
After all, you’re no longer a student.
2. And words cannot describe how you’re feeling about having to move back home.
No one really wants to go to uni, work hard, get a degree, and then move right back in with their parents.
3. The thought of applying for graduate jobs is not the one.
Even the ones you don’t want.
4. Which is why you’re considering sacking it all in and going travelling for a while.
Might as well blow off what’s left of your student loan.
5. You can just imagine how nights out as a non-student are going to be from now on.
You can’t get any student deals or the post-night out free cheeseburger with your student card.
6. Same goes for those “uni reunion” nights out.
You’ll probably get very drunk and see some people you didn’t want to see again
7. You’re starting to wonder if maybe being a student is actually your true calling.
Maybe I’m just not meant to be a graduate. Or an adult.
8. Especially because you just know that your first day in a new office will feel like your first day back at school.
But not in the good and exciting way.
9. And you’ll turn into one of those people who have to find comfort in the little things.
This could range from spending your break times in the toilet or stapling on the same piece of paper 50+ times.
10. You’re already starting to doubt your degree choice.
Even though you’ll never regret it.
11. And you’re missing your uni friends more than you could have imagined.
The withdrawal symptoms are reaaaaal.
12. You might land your first graduate job and be absolutely over the moon about it.
There is a god!
13. Then reality will kick in when you realise that this is your life now.
You’ll soon convince yourself it’s not so bad… Right?
14. A part of you just wants to keep on being a student for just a bit longer.
‘Graduate’ sounds a bit too much like you’re supposed to have things figured out.
15. Weirdly, you’re already feeling quite nostalgic about the exams and the essays.
Though when you really think about it, you’re more than relieved that that part of uni is well and truly over.
16. And you’ve just realised that there are a lot of people your age doing ‘real adult’ things.
Lol, my bad.
17. But, even though being a new graduate is pretty scary, you know deep down that you’re ready to take on the world.
18. Because at the end of the day, you’re a freakin’ graduate with newfound skills and lots of enthusiasm.
