This is some cutty shit.

Clipper card? no thanks.

Oh the joy of the late night Muni transfer!

4. You used protests as an excuse to get out of class.

Peace out, algebra. Sayonara, Engrish. Hello FREEDOM!

5. You learned to never leave home without a hoodie.

It’s all about the layering. These dudes know what’s up.

And you made them switch it to KMEL Jams or Live 105.

Helllla mesmerizing.

And you fucking love that shit

12. You know where to get the best Thai food at midnight.

As well as burritos and chow mein.

20. You went to the top of Twin Peaks for more than the views.

Or maybe you preferred Coit Tower.
