When you're a senior in college, there are several "gives," not the least of which is the "I'm out of here" attitude. However, if you have experienced any of these tell tale signs, you're definitely on your way out of college:
1. You seem to reminisce—A LOT.
When you see a lost freshman, you fondly remember being overwhelmed by your mile-long campus, and when you see someone entering a dining hall, you actually consider paying $10 to eat at one.
2. At the same time, classes just seem, well, less important.
I mean, how are you really going to use this analysis of The Lefthand of Darkness through a second wave feminist framework in the real world, ya know?
3. You’ve realized that senior year of college is nothing like senior year of high school.
Instead of feeling like you run the place, you kind of feel irrelevant.
4. You see freshman around campus and wonder if a local high school is visiting.
When did everyone get so young?
5. Plus, all of these seemingly twelve year-old freshman are super impressive.
6. Everything starts to take on an especial finality.
Last home football game I’ll ever see. Last student center sushi roll I’ll ever eat. Last Econ midterm I’ll ever take (hopefully).
7. You seem to be meeting a lot of cool, new people with whom you want to spend time, and you can’t help but wishing you had met them earlier.
8. You have an existential crisis at least once a day, but you’re (kind of) getting better at dealing with them.
Tomorrow will worry for itself, right? Right?
