Thoughts Every Student Has Coming Back From University In The Summer

aka thoughts in the real world ft. real food

University is a weird place. For most people, it's the first time they're living on their own and some people have no idea what to do with all that freedom. You'll meet every type of person at university; the people that seem like they finally got let out of the cage (usually at the club) to the ones that are totally self sufficient and seem like they've been setting up their wifi ever since their days in their OG crib.

No matter what kind of person you were at university we can all agree on this; it's weird to come home after being completely independent for the better part of the year. Here are the thoughts we know we've had coming back.
