You will experience all sorts of emotions at uni, and there is nothing more relatable than a meme. The online trend is the perfect way to convey all those new and annoying emotions you will feel at uni, and if you are already at uni – you will definitely understand. University life is a huge spectrum of emotions: fun, tiring, stressful, daunting, exciting, the list goes on. Let’s relate all these to memes, the most millennial thing to do (but also really fun, right?).
1. When Your Lecturer Skips Slides To Quickly
You will be writing away and taking notes (that is if you bothered going to the lecture) and halfway through you look up and see the worst thing ever! Your lecturer has changed slides before you have finished writing. You can’t be that person to ask for the slide back in a room full of hundreds of people, but the lecture notes haven’t been uploaded yet, so you sit there like argh!
This meme of a man blinking accurately describes that moment.
2. Trying To Make Your Cooking Taste Nice
Believe me, there is nothing worse than a university kitchen. You could probably catch an illness from the tea-towels alone. Gross! But everyone has to eat – if you can’t cook, pot noodles and oven food may get a bit tedious, but never fear, add some seasonings and you have basically got a new meal, right?
This meme is you, adding your fajita seasoning to your chicken as a treat meal. When you go home and get a home-cooked meal made for you – that is total bliss!
3. Your Bank Account After Your Student Loan Drops
The night out after you get the SFE text saying your loan will arrive in your account in three days is one of the best nights out you will have each semester. Jager bombs here, double vodkas for you and your friends there. And once your rent comes out – ouch!
What was once hundreds of pounds can soon be as low as minus numbers! Your bank account will be this John Travolta meme after that amazing night out.
4. When Your Assignment Is Due At 12 And It Is 11:45
This meme will be you at least once in your years at uni, even if you are the most organised person on earth. Deadlines will always approach – and fast.
It will be late night and you think ‘oh my gosh I haven’t done the work that I was meant to do’, or you will be picking up the slack in group work, or you will be half a bottle of wine in writing what you think is the best essay in the world (and having to go through and correct it all after). Kermit
The Frog = accurate representation of deadline problems.
5. When You See The Recommended Reading For Your New Unit
You will never not see the words ‘recommended reading’ on each new unit you take at uni. Your instant reaction will be ‘oh yes I will buy all of the books that and will read a chapter a night’. Your next thought will be this meme.
Even your course friends will say the same. Ain’t nobody got time for that extra reading.
6. When People Ask You What You Want To Do After University
The ultimate dreaded question; ‘what do you want to do after uni?’, most of the time people have absolutely no idea what they would like to do. And it is okay to not know what to do. But trying to explain that to someone is like trying to get blood out of a stone.
No one other than fellow students will understand that you what you mean and the patronising answer you get after is worth avoiding the question at all time. Your face when you get asked this question will be the dog in this meme.
7. Your Mum When You Are Having A Melt Down
Calling your Mum while you are having a meltdown over how stressed you are or the fact you are getting slightly homesick is a really important thing to do. You will always need your Mum on the other end of the phone and she will be there for moral support when things get tough.
This meme may not even be your mum, it could be your friend, Nan, father, sister, anyone. Empower the Kris Jenner inspirational speech.
8. When You’re Left Third Wheeling With Your Mates In The Club
Nights out at uni are amazing. You will have unforgettable nights and ones that you can’t remember. When your friend pulls, however, and leaves you or is getting with their partner in front of you, that is when this meme is life. You may not react like this when you get told you are going to Disney Land, but you will when you are left third-wheeling.
