26 Symptoms Of Entering Your Senior Year Of College
This post is brought to you by all the feelings.
"Back-to-school shopping" for senior year means "stocking up on liquor," now that you're 21.
Especially when you realize how expensive drinking will be when you leave your college town.
Instead of buying books, you find them for free in the bowels of the internet.
But maybe you buy a new pen or two, you know, just in case.
The packing and move-in stages are no brainers to you by now.
You really can't be bothered to decorate your room anymore.
Rather than get all dolled up, a clean pair of sweatpants is your "first day outfit."
You accept the inevitable, like sleeping at 5 a.m. and waking up whenever the universe wills it.
A balanced breakfast? FORGET ABOUT IT.
Going to the gym? LOL NOPE.
And if you're doing one, you begin mentally preparing yourself for your thesis or senior project.
As it slowly but surely becomes your lord and master.
You select your classes based on the attendance policy.
And you use the syllabus to calculate how much work you actually need to do to pass the class.
While freshmen start to look like toddlers who've invaded the campus with their Smirnoff Ice.
And they insist on asking you for advice since you've mastered BSing on the spot.
It seems like everyone and their estranged father is asking you, "What are you doing after graduation?"
And your parents are checking up on you to make sure you're on the road to real-personhood, just like in high school!
You're cleaning up your Facebook and hoping no future employers see photos of you having a good time.
But with dismal career prospects, grad school has become a serious life choice.
You're in deep denial that every experience at school is your "last" everything ever.
Like, it'll be the last time you sit in the student section at your last home game.
So you've started your senior year bucket list — things like having sex in the library.
And more attainable goals like sneaking onto a roof and watching the sunrise.
Because you're seeing everything through graduation goggles.
And as much as you just want to throw in the towel, it's your senior year, and goddammit you're gonna make it count.
