19 Signs You’re Definitely Not Ready To Graduate Yet
It’s. Too. Soon.
1. You’ve started counting down the days until graduation, and not in an excited way.
2. And nostalgia for your time at university has already kicked in.
You’ve not left yet, but you’re missing it already.
3. In fact, part of you is convinced this is all a trick and you’re actually still a Fresher.
Because surely time can’t move that quickly can it?
I really don't understand how I finish uni in just over 3 weeks

4. You’ve become painfully aware of the fact that you keep doing things for the last time.
5. And even the things you used to look forward to never doing again are giving you all the feels.

6. It’s just dawned on you that you’re not going to be able to use your student discount for very much longer.
7. And that the next time the student loans company contact you it will be to tell you that you need to pay them back.
8. The thought of being far apart from your friends makes you more emotional than you’ve ever been.
9. And your brain just shuts down whenever anyone asks what you are doing after graduation.
10. You’ve considered doing a postgraduate degree just to avoid the future.
You don’t really want to do one, but does that matter?
11. And you have asked yourself: “What would happen if I just refused to leave?”
12. Hearing that people on your course already have jobs lined up makes no sense to you.
13. And you’ve stopped even trying to pretend you’re OK with the prospect of moving back home.
14. You can already feel the pressure to be a successful adult getting to you.
15. And, to be honest, you’re not sure you’re any more prepared for real life than you were before uni.
16. Plus, you’re fairly convinced you submitted incorrect measurements for your graduation cap.
If there’s ever a reason not to graduate, that’s surely it?
I'm suddenly really worried I've measured the wrong bit of my head and my graduation cap is going to be too big.. 😳

17. You honestly couldn’t be less motivated by all the end of uni speeches.
They’re just reminding you that the end is nigh and adding to the pressure.
18. In fact, if going back to the start and doing it all over again was an option, you’d take it.
Never want my uni experience to end 😭😭😭

19. Because you just don’t think you’re ever going to be ready to leave.
