Well the year is half way done and we are about to start semester 2. This will be my fourth semester 2 and my last, so I'm starting to feel a bit anxious.

When I tell people I'm close to graduating they say "oh that must be exciting". Well I'm telling you now, it's definitely more on the terrifying side.

I'm sure every Uni student knows that constant low key panic that comes with being a student. Even during holidays you can't really relax and enjoy yourself properly because you're thinking about what you should be doing for next semester, or how you haven't done anything today except play Pokemon go, watch TV and scroll endlessly through Facebook.

Or the existential crisis that sits dormant in the background growing louder when you find yourself playing candy crush at stupid hours of the morning or when you realise you've only got a semester left of study and then you'll have to go out and face the real world. You'll have to find a job and then the days will pass even quicker now that you have something to do. And soon you'll be retiring and old and... you get the idea.

I'd really like to think I'm not the only one. #relatable?
