And that stress never went away.

“Starving artist” is an understatement.

And it isn’t coming off no matter how many times you wash them.

5. All-nighters have become a lifestyle.

Sleep is for the weak!

6. The bag you carry around campus is almost as large as you and twice your body weight.

Hopefully your degree will lead to a career that can pay the medical bills for your back issues.

7. Your Exacto knife is your best friend, until it becomes your worst enemy.

But at the same time, you thrive off of critiques and can never get enough of them.

9. You’ve come to terms with the fact that nobody will ever understand what VCD stands for.

Yeah, sure, it’s “graphic design.”

10. In the end, you have some pretty awesome projects to show for all of your hard work, and that makes it all worth it!

As long as you don’t sustain too many Exacto knife injuries.
