These Tweets Depict How We’re Feeling at This Point in the Semester

It’s a Lifestyle.

University life is more to attending lectures. The life of a student is all about juggling through assignments, lectures, career fairs clubs and societies. Life of a student may generally vary from person to person. The toppers will be mostly found in the library, the average scorers are somewhere between the library and sports areas where some of them maybe always found lazing around in the university lawns. Despite such differences, typically, students go through the same kind of mental situations and experiences. And none of them will deny it.
Here are a few tweets which rightly depict how all of the students feel at some point in a semester.
