- You still feel like first-year, or worse: a senior in high school.
- But you also feel a little invincible since you are the top of the top now.
- Everyone keeps talking about their careers and asking you about post-grad plans which is very overwhelming/panic attack inducing.
- You expect to skip every class, drink every night, but actually just end up in the library doing your reading like you’ve done for the last three years.
- You feel like you’ve forgotten how to write essays/doubt you even had the ability in the first place.
- You’ve still never been to senior night (because why go and wait in line and buy still expensive drinks when you could just drink wine with all your suitemates?)
- Every time someone talks about their thesis you roll your eyes.
- Every time someone asks you about your thesis, you stumble for the right words to describe it.
- Your professors expect you to do more work/procrastinate less because “you’ve learned by now”.
- You’re already getting sad about all your “lasts”.
- Your coffee addiction is through the roof (thank god for Liz’s Place).
- You try and appreciate the little time you have left at this great school with all your friends.
- You write an article in GIF form because you have senioritis a lot of emotions that can only be expressed by GIFs.
