15 Painfully Real Pictures Only Students Will Understand

Thank you Red Bull, Google, and Wikipedia for making this possible.

1. First of all, when your whole career as a student starts off like this, you know you're in for an adventure: / Via

So you ask yourself every day: "What did I do to deserve this?"

2. And even if you get aid, your tuition fees will haunt you to your grave. / Via

RIP your parents' savings

3. TBH, "being a student" is basically a synonym for "being broke." / Via

Seriously, you'll be broke AF most of the time, but you still find a way to have a good time.

4. Some of your classmates also claim they're broke, even though they're obviously not. / Via

K, with your new iPhone and MacBook.

5. Literally every time you want to buy something, you quickly realize that you can't afford it because you're a student: / Via

The worst feeling ever, tbh.

6. And you're very familiar with this starter pack: / Via

Especially with the last two pictures.

7. Red Bull, Google, and Wikipedia are the names of your best friends. / Via image/jpeg;base64,/9j/4AAQSkZJRgABAQAAAQABAAD/2wCEAAkGBxMTEhUTExIWFhUXGRoaGBgYGB0gIBggGiIfHRofIh8aHiggIB8lHR8fIjEhJSkrLi4uHR8zODMtNygtLysBCgoKDg0OGxAQGy0lHyUtLi0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLf/AABEIAMIBBAMBIgACEQEDEQH/xAAcA

Vodka too, but usually only on the weekends.

8. However, when it comes to exams, Google can't help you. / Via

LOL when did we learn this??????

9. Like WTF? / Via

Is this the right exam? Am I in the wrong class, maybe? HELP.

10. That moment when the teacher calls on you to answer the question. / Via

And there's like ten other students with their hands raised. Not fair.

11. When you're too lazy and unmotivated to do anything. / Via

I did not sign up for this.

12. But at least you don't have to go to classes every day, like in high school.

The Meta Picture / Via

The only perk of going to college, tbh.

13. You always start working on your assignments a day before the deadline. / Via

And somehow, you manage to do it correctly. Good job!

14. The exams are killing you, but you have your head high. / Via

"Don't worry, mom! Everything is just fine."

*hangs up and starts panicking*

15. And though your strength is growing weary, we believe in you.
