Yep, it’s that time of year again; back to school. You’re probably dreading that daunting early morning class, the unnecessary late night studying, and the stressful time in between where you try to keep your social life alive.
Just remember, you’re not alone in this! Here are ten thoughts every student has when starting the new school year.
1.I don’t think I’m ready for this!
The start of a new school year is always confusing AF. It’s funny how the phrase “back to school” can make you question everything in life.
2. I’m not waiting until the last minute to study.
You tell yourself you’re going to study early, but we all know the chances of that happening are slim. When it comes down to it, procrastination and naps win every time.
3. I’m not partying every night like last year.
The phone rings. It’s Jenny from the 5th floor that you’ve exchanged “hi”s with a few times. She asks “drinks?”, you say “on the way.”
4. Should I change my major?
Ahhhh, the quarter-life crisis sets in. Are you sure you even know what you want to do with your life?
5. I hope I don’t have a casual run in with my ex.
Unfortunately, the hopes and dreams of your ex transferring schools, or just disappearing off the planet entirely, doesn’t always come true.
6. I hope I don’t have classes with people who ask a bunch of questions and drag out the lecture.
Really, Susan? Can’t you just ask the T.A. when the class is over? Some of us have a life outside of this classroom.
7. I am making the Dean’s List this year.
Striving for good grades is always the plan, but sometimes we fall short. Remember, a “C” is a degree.
8. I should probably hit the gym.
You mean to tell me that these chicken nuggets won’t always work themselves off?
9. I am not letting my bank account dip below $25.
Oops, I did it again. The vodka tonics were half off, who could resist the urge?
10. How many months until Christmas break again?
Let’s be honest. You really just want to know how many weeks you will be forced to tip-toe around your grades.
We’ve all been there and know the start of a new school year can be a stressful time. Just remember to have fun and live it up while you’re young because this whole post college, “adulting” era makes me wish I was going back to school.
