20 Things You Immediately Learn To Hate About Being a Graduate
Get me back to uni. 🙃🙃🙃
1. The knowledge that “summer holidays” are no longer a thing.
It's hit me like a big shitty brick that I'm never gonna get a half term or summer holiday again. Why am I so old

2. And once you get a job you’ll have just 20 days off. In a whole year.
The struggles of wanting to go on so many holidays in a year, but not enough days to take off work

3. Which means it’s almost impossible to ever meet up with your uni friends.

4. Seeing other people with LinkedIn accounts.
5. And somehow getting jobs out of it.
Just joined Linkedin. When do I get head-hunted?

6. Having to wake up for 9am every day of the week. Forever.
How am I supposed to wake up early everyday and go to work as an adult for the rest of my life?

7. Which would be a lot easier if you were capable of going to bed early.
It's simply wonderful when you can't sleep in cos your biological clock is accustomed to getting 5 hours of sleep… pic.twitter.com/GQSAp47dOn

9. And people saying things like, “how’s the job hunt going?”
I hate when people ask "how's the job hunt going?"
Obviously if it was going well I would have a job!

10. Older people comparing your life to theirs when they were your age.
Oh you had a four bed house, a good job and several kids at 21? kwl 🙃
I hate when little old people tell me I should be married at my age. Nowt like making me feel ancient and unloved 👌 #ThanksForNowt

11. Getting statements from the Student Loans company about how much interest you’re gaining.
12. And wondering how on earth you’re ever going to pay it off.

13. Spending 10 hours on your CV, only to be asked to fill in an online application form.
That’s fine I’ll just waste ~all~ my time 😠

14. Trying to find an original way to describe yourself as “hard working”.
proper makes me laugh when I read my cv what a loada SHIT 'I am hard working and motivated'
— * (@caittllin) November 25, 2014
15. Forever being professionally compared to your siblings or the children of your parents’ friends.
Wish my mum and dad would stop comparing me to other people. If you're not happy with me fuck off

16. The frustration that no matter how much experience you have, it’s never enough.

17. Watching shows like Friends and Girls and wondering how long you have to wait before your life in the city takes off.
18. And wondering how on earth they can afford to live where they do.
Meanwhile this is you:
19. Getting emails from recruitment companies about “great opportunities”.
20. And phone calls from your university’s alumni department asking if you’re a successful millionaire who wants to donate money to them yet.
Like, you wanna pay my loans first?
Just got my first alumni donation request call lol
