    The people you saw in freshers week - the next time you saw them, they mentioned how pissed you were.

    You never saw them again after that.

    You throw out a plate because you can't be bothered to wash it.

    Cold pasta with dodgy cheese is ****ing delicious!

    You find yourself agonising over whether to fork out the £2 for some lunch.

    Carry on? When was your "I am definately a student" moment?

    When you've seen this youtube video lol: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSQD8ILOOe0

    The majority of your facebook/twitter updates take place at a time that people that aren't students would say you should be in bed.

    Seeing people turn up to lectures looking like they have just woken up and dressing like tramp. People stinking of alcohol from a previous nights partying.

    When chucking dominoes & cards at one another in the kitchen while sober seems like a fun and brilliant idea.

    I'm with you there, I lost my hairbrush last week and I've been using my fingers ever since. I'm hoping it ends up looking less "I haven't brushed my hair for a week" and more sexily dishevelled.

    you know you're a (mature) student when you notice all of the lads that are starting uni straight from sixth form/college all dress like each other within their friendship group. loan goes in, first one goes out and buys abercrombie t shirts, jack willis hoodie, and some chinos, and the rest start to follow suit.

    cringe.


    you realise that most students have no idea how to use your/you're and there/their/they're. and no, that isn't a dig at dyslexic people, i understand some people genuinely do struggle with things like that, however the vast majority just can't be bothered.


    as a mature student, it also makes me chuckle listening to all the kids talking like they've lived away from home for years and have no problem budgeting their money - typical know it all attitude. no, it's been sixth months, and the things that are coming out of your mouth make it obvious you still haven't got a clue.

    OH MY GOD I AGREE!!

    Coming from a fellow mature student, I feel your pain. Putting up with these kids prattle is bad enough in college.
