With graduation just around the corner, seniors are starting to get emotional and nostalgic. We're all sad to be leaving behind a place that's become our home over the past few years, and the friends who have become our family. But, rather than focusing on what we don't want to leave behind, let's take a moment to celebrate the fact that there are also annoying things about college that we won't have to put up with anymore.

Here is a list of all of the things that won't be missed by graduating seniors:

1. Putting off doing laundry because the washing machines and dryers are a) gross b) always full unless it's the dead of night and c) only work like 43% of the time.

2. Wearing shoes in the shower.

Or just the dirty dorm showers in general. Freshman year, I yawned in the shower and a bug flew into my mouth (true story).

3. Getting sick from the food after a long break because your body hasn't "adjusted" to it yet.

4. Having to eat bananas that are either too ripe or not ripe enough because that's all the dining hall ever has.

5. Getting sick every time someone in your hall gets sick.


6. People that say stupid things during class discussions.

"Really? Peru's in South America?"

Really? You're in college?

7. Wifi that always seems to stop working as soon as you have to write a research paper or video chat with your grandma.

8. Sleeping on a mattress topper.

One of two things happen when you try to fall asleep: it's impossible to get comfortable, or the thing starts sliding off your bed and you have to keep readjusting it.

9. People that act like they're still in high school.

10. The overwhelming panic and stress that finals week brings every year.

11. People throwing up EVERYWHERE.

And puke sitting in trash cans, water fountains, or sinks for days on end, stinking up the halls.

To all of these things we say, goodbye and good riddance.
