A Senior’s Last Semester: As Told by Broad City

If you haven’t seen executive producer Amy Poehler’s raunchy, down to earth comedy Broad City, I couldn’t recommend it more. The series showcases a reckless New York City friendship in its stripped down form. Two broke best friends, Abbi and Ilana, never veer away from an awkward situation, and always manage to get into some sort of adventure. The show is gritty, realistic, and somehow manages to make me accept the fact that I’m graduating in a couple of months. So, without further ado, here are a few of moments every college senior knows a little too well, as told by two of my favorite gals.

That feeling when you walk into the local bar and realize you’re one a first name basis with just about every bartender around.

But for some reason you still have to put in the same amount of effort to get a drink.

And at this point, you and your friend group have given up on bar etiquette, because you’re simply too old to care.

Then there are those other nights where you really do just feel a little too old and out of place to be at a fraternity party, so you think it’s best you skip out.

Sometimes you think it’s fun to tell someone to guess what year in school you are, and to your complete surprise they reply, “sophomore?”

That feeling you get on those glorious mornings when you manage to get more than 4 hours of sleep, which is due to the effort put into balancing your class, work, and social schedules.

Or there’s those other days where you’re completely exhausted for literally no reason at all.

Despite hearing that you’ll never find a job in your field of study, you assume everything will eventually work out one way or another.

You’re also fully aware of the obvious fact that soon you’ll be going to big-girl interviews, which are no joke.

And then there’s those seniors who have every single aspect of their life after graduation planned out perfectly.

So all of a sudden you start realizing how sad you’re going to be when you actually have to graduate and be a real adult.
