You can't help it if you're part vampire.

3. Which means you're partial to the odd afternoon nap too. / Via

Nighty night.

4. You feel more comfortable online.

That's wasted time you could be studying (or watching Netflix).

10. Your life is busy enough as it is, trying to balance a job with other ~adult~ responsibilities. / Via

You don't want to be restricted to another timetable.

11. You love being spontaneous too, drinking with friends one minute...

BYE, life and responsibilities.

13. You like to keep your learning flexible.


No one likes feeling tied down. Go with the flow, and all that.

14. So you can work on your own terms, when and where you feel like it.
