Optimistic 18-year-olds are unaware that university will bring crippling debts, social anxiety and career pressure, and that is just the beginning.
Bright-eyed 18-year-old Tom Logan said: “I’m totally relieved to have finished my A-Levels. Nothing’s ever going to be as stressful as remembering quotes by Polonius.
“I’m off to uni in September, so all I need to do now is chill out for a few years and get a really creative, well-paid job afterwards. It’s all plain sailing from now on.”
However Logan remains blissfully unaware that university accommodation will mean getting uncomfortably close to many extremely difficult people and a few who are genuinely scary.
