    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.

    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!!

    "your" so right!

    I literally live in Primark clothes!

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