Being a final semester student has both its perks and disadvantages. On one side, you feel relieved of finally being done with the course, but on the other side, your life starts to get much more real with each passing day. The fun and freedom of college life start turning into the pressure of the outside world.
While due to pandemic, the final year students have not been able to enjoy the last year of their college life as they wanted, but their emotions have surely not been any different from their predecessors.
Here are the 5 thoughts every final semester student must have at least once:
No More College Fun.
This is definitely the first thought that comes to anyone’s mind when they think of finishing college. No more rickshaw rides with friends, being late to classes because you were too busy goofing around with your gang or bunking classes altogether to visit the newest food joint or to just chill out in the college canteen; these are the memories that stay with us for the rest of our lives. To not be able to do these things again is something we do not want to think about.
No More Assignments, Tests etc.
While the idea of leaving college for good does not bring a smile to your face, but the fact that you will not have to go through tests and assignments anymore surely does. No student in the history of education has ever been a fan of writing page after page of assignments or have enjoyed scheduled exams let alone surprise tests, so this might be the only silver lining in this situation.

No More ‘Travel Plan Fails’ With College Buddies.
Remember those never-ending plannings with your friends to visit so many places that are yet to come true? With everyone’s plates being full with their own future plans, there will hardly be any time left to plan imaginary trips with your friends. Just another thing each one of you will be missing out on once the college gets over.
Daydreaming About Farewell.
Having seen so many farewells over the years, this is the one thing that makes the thought of leaving the college behind a bit bearable. Every final year student looks forward to this day with so much excitement. To dress up, hang out and dance with your squad one last time in the same place that gave you so many beautiful memories and amazing people over the years to cherish for a lifetime.
One can only imagine the emotions pulsating though the atmosphere when that day finally comes.
The Uncertainties That Lie Ahead For A Final Semester Student
Life finally gets real and serious at the end of your college years. The pressure of standing on your own feet by landing jobs keeps some of us up all night. You can finally feel how Rachel must be feeling when her friends made her understand how she cannot live her life on her father’s money and made her get a job of her own. That surely paid off well since she may have started off as a waitress but ended up with multiple offers from world-level stylists.
So, in the words of Monica Geller- “Welcome to the real world! It sucks. You’re gonna love it!”
Make the most of what’s left of your college years. All the best for the future!
