12 August, 2014
1.People at work are looking at you very strangely because you’re eating baked beans straight out of the tin. Cold.

2. You can no longer blame your disgustingly messy room or laziness on the fact that you’re a ‘student’. Nah ah. You’re now just a slob.

3. You have to check for wrinkles as you suddenly realise that all the babies who were in year 8 during your final year of school are now freshers.

4. You find yourself pretending to be flattered when you’re asked for ID in a bar.

5. Your hangovers are suddenly unbelievable and trying to get rid of them is like finding water in the desert.

6. Spending your money in the first week of getting it suddenly seems really stupid, as you’re now the only broke one eating tinned curry.

7. You completely sympathise with Cady from Mean Girls when you show up to a birthday party in neon fancy dress and everyone else is in a suit.

8. You find yourself craving cups of tea, not pints.

9. When you see a student discount being offered you have an internal meltdown of sorrow and grief for your expired card.
