Uni humour

I'm not entirely sure where this article comes from, since it is almost certainly a rip-off from someone else, but Brendan and I identify with perhaps 90% of the things on this list regarding our previous university lives. (Except for the beer ones. But we know people for whom those are also true.)

Particular favourites:
"You think it’s the weekend on a Wednesday and you don’t know what month it is."
Brendan used to do this a LOT. "What month is it? Is it September?" (in October).
"You try to study but seem to procrastinate by eating, going to study breaks, talking to people, etc... "
Man, that happened a lot for us - I ate so so much when I was studying!
"You pay $100 for a book you don't read once, return/sell it four months later, and get $7. "

"You stay up late to finish homework then sleep through the class in which it was due."
This happened many many times... for a few important assignments, too.

And of course, Mealz will remember this one:
"Going to the grocery at midnight is completely normal."
It happened a lot in our house, usually before a big all-nighter. Or we were just hungry and had no time to shop. Or we were just hungry. New World Metro was our dairy.

And Brendan's own one:
"You procrastinate by looking up websites on how to stop procrastinating."
So, yeah. Check it out - it's surprisingly accurate.
