2. And hesitate over pressing submit for a long, long time.

It’s too much responsibility. It’s all too final.

Have you ever felt genuine happiness until this point, really?

5. But doubt soon starts to creep in.

Did I definitely submit it to the right place? What if I’ve fallen at the last hurdle?

6. Followed by a burning sense of guilt.

Like you didn’t do enough, or you should have studied harder.

7. Before you know it, actual fear has set in.

Is it too late to change it? How can I fix it? Send help.

13. You finally reward yourself with that well-deserved pint, or six.

Which proves to be just like you dreamt it would be.

14. And text everyone you can think of to share this glorious moment with you.

“Yes, really, Mum! I’ve finished it!”

15. You start trying to think of all the possibilities to fill the masses of free time that you now have.

A holiday? A festival? Nights out without guilt?!

17. In fact, it’s not long before you actually kinda miss them.

The Netflix library has been well and truly exhausted.

18. But at least it’s made you start to look forward to whatever comes next.

Whether it’s a gap year, a job, or more studying… you’ll be ready for it.
