Here’s To Every Student Who Literally Can’t Live Without Cereal
Before you came to university, cereal was probably just the relatively uninteresting stuff you ate for breakfast.
Nothing more than another part of your morning routine.
And you probably thought that being a student wouldn’t change this.
But you were wrong.
Never appreciated the importance of cereal until uni

So, so wrong.
I don't know how I'd live without cereal. Pretty much eat it for every single meal at uni

Because at uni, cereal is everything.
I swear the best thing about uni is being able to eat cereal at any time of night without disapproval from your mum

Caught myself thinking about how excited I am to try a new cereal tomorrow morning. This is my life now

You’re hungry at a weird time of day or night? You have cereal.
you know you're at uni when you're throwing a cereal party at 2am

You’re stressed about revision? Cereal is there for you.
Is it really a revision session if you don't eat about 5 bowls of cereal tho

Not sure who to be friends with? Observe their cereal etiquette.
My uni flat mate just put the milk in the bowl before the cereal. FUCK

Really though, your love for it knows no bounds these days.
I managed to eat a whole box of cereal in under 24 hrs and I think that accurately represents uni life for me

There is joy in discovering the branded versions are on sale.
And genuine heartbreak whenever a milk-related emergency occurs.
euh I have no milk at uni and all shops are closed ffs what am I gonna do with my cereal now

Not only is it incredibly versatile.
First night at uni and I've had cereal and wine for dinner… standard

It also allows you to assert your newfound independence.
I love uni, I get to eat the cereal that my mum wouldn't buy me when I was young.

Which might become a bit of a problem whenever you go home.
The downside to being at home instead of uni is that your cereal is no longer your cereal.

And let’s not underestimate the importance of a freebie.
— Louiseee (@lousbrow_) September 11, 2016
People will say that you’re obsessed.
Or that you’re only eating it because you don’t know how to cook.
And that eating a different cereal at lunch than you did for breakfast doesn’t make it OK.
But they are wrong.
Cereal is life.
When you're a poor college student but cereal is the air that u breath pic.twitter.com/gMxtGQLBhO

So enjoy it while you still can.
Uni: That special time in your life when you can eat cereal at 6pm in a onesie and no-one thinks you’re having a massive fucking breakdown.
