DO IT. It's not tacky and nobody will think you're a pretentious prick. At all.

7. So you can secretly think you're kinda better than people who don't have grad degrees...

F*ck business casual. And suits. Sweats are acceptable as long as they have college logos all over them. School pride!

9. Day drinking. Night drinking. In the school building and library drinking. Your brain is working harder – SO SHOULD YOUR LIVER.

10. You miss pulling all-nighters (and having all-nighter parties) with your friends.

"Studying how soccer impacts the economy and culture of a tiny island near Bali that the world hasn't heard about yet but will after you publish your thesis." It's like going on vacation, without using vacation days.

21. Need to explain a really long vacation...from employment. #employmentgapsonresumesareanono


"It's a tough market."

22. OK actually, you don't want to work. At all.


The real world can wait! Just a little longer!
