We've all been there, and we hate to admit it, but this list still rings true even after graduation - just replace test with meetings, and welcome to the real world. With that in mind, here are 10 things that every college student knows are all to real:

There is any number of reasons this could be true... So pick one: karaoke Monday, taco Tuesday,wine Wednesday, thirsty Thursday – the list goes on and it's ALWAYS fun! However, there is just something so wrong about getting woken up at 8AM to rush to that early morning test.
Well this one is an obvious bummer. Only thing is, you've got that test in about 20 minutes that's worth 20% of your grade.
Let's be real... When was the last time you ran? Let alone with something so important on the line. Your legs are heavy, knees weak, sore feet, and you still haven't had anything to eat...
You get to your test just in the nick of time, only to realize you haven't studied nearly enough... However, you're confident you can pass – and then you get your results, and you realize you mistook micro for macro... OOPS!
It always seems like a sick joke, doesn't it. Two classes back-to-back on the other side of campus. It's a leisurely 30-minute walk, but you only have 10 minutes. You start to run and really start to feel your feet, knees, and back from the books you've got in your bag.
Have you ever said this before "Tomorrow, I'm going to start going to the gym!" ...But tomorrow never comes, does it?
It's funny how every time you think about going to the gym, someone invites you to the bar. I guess they're both 3 letter words, and they're both activities that affect your body... However, the real question is, where was our invite?!
And we're so proud of you for spending 15 minutes on the bike, and doing some bicep curls! It's better than nothing I guess.
... and instant noodles, because you can't afford healthy/normal food. Good thing we created the ultimate guide to eating healthy on a student budget!
Stranger Things marathon anyone?!
