University; it’s a tough life.
So here, to make it a little easier, we’ve proved that the characters in E4’s New Girl feel the exact same way.
You expect every night to be absolutely AMAZING. Your plans seem like the best thing ever, and ‘tonight’ is always the thing that keeps you going.
But then, you end up staying in because your bank balance doesn’t agree with that bottle of vodka you wanted to buy, and wander around your house in your robe instead.
Even when you AREN’T hungover, you can still sleep until 5pm. And that’s perfectly fine, because it’s the weekend. Or it’s not. The lecture notes are online anyway…
Everytime you do a food shop, you go out hoping to start that healthy diet you’ve got planned. But you end up with a trolley full of crisps and chocolate. But it’s great, because you avoided those doughnuts!
And the best part about all the work that’s to be done at home for a girl? The lack of boob jail.
And if you’re not the right gender to experience this lack of boob jail, you are fully aware that a day spent on netflix is a day well spent.
But when you do go to lectures, you find yourself doing that half-a-second sleep when your head starts to drop…and then half the lecture noticing you jumping back to life.
You all know that your house could really use a douchebag jar, but you also know it would always be full. So you all ignore the fact and continue without one.
Those slight obsessions with people on your course, when you just want to spend the entire lecture staring at them.
Not to forget when you end up at the same party as them…
How the relief you feel when an assignment is handed in is simply crushed within days by a new assignment being set. And depressingly working that into your schedule.
Then when all the assignments come at once. All. At. Once.
With every morning after leaving you tracing together pieces of the night before, working out how bad your decision making process was on a scale of 1 to Lindsay Lohan.
But hell, we’re all in the same boat. And we’re all damn crazy because of it. Right, Shmidt?
