Top five things to do as a student.
1. Cry over vast amounts of unpayable debt:
As a student this really is a must do thing! I mean basically all of us have stupid and crippling levels of debt which normally we just ignore and pretend isn’t there. But what you should really do is just cry about it, let it debilitate you! Feel awful? Doesn’t it feel great? You can thank me later.
2. Sit on Facebook all day and then go to bed:
This is a hoot, you get to see how much more fun people are having than you and feel horribly lonely at the same time. Because you realise you either hate most of your Facebook friends or they hate you! And after all that fun, you can go to bed. Yaaay.
3. Sit in the Library and stare at coursework until you have a complete mental breakdown:
Who doesn’t love doing this? I know I do! Not knowing when the next emotional breakdown is going to come is just the most exciting part of my day to day student life.
4. Not plan your future:
Why would you need a plan for the future? University has actually been really hard and the real world can’t possibly present a challenge which you won’t be able to overcome once you have 2:1 in a Humanities degree. So don’t plan, just enjoy….Plus your Mum’s house in Surrey is really quite nice and the idea of living there is secretly lovely. You could get a part time job in Topshop and be happy forever more, who needs a graduate scheme? #AmIright? #YesIamright #cool
5. Stab your own leg:
This one is perhaps a little more on the edgy side, but nothing will solve the soul crushing boredom of essays like stabbing your own leg! If you clip an artery you might just loose so much blood that you get an extension, or alternatively you may bleed out, which might just be for the best….
(For any feeling depressed or effected in anyway by the content of this article, I am in 4th year too, it is hard right? Everything is scary and awful, my heart goes out to you guys. Everyone else can go away! Until they hit 4th year, then they don’t have to go away, you won’t get it!!!. Much love xoxo)
