IMAGE Lionsgate ART Clare Magno

We love school. We love shopping for cute school supplies, hanging out with our friends, and doing our favorite teachers proud. But let’s be honest, schoolwork can be the stuff of nightmares... especially when we keep scrolling through Tumblr for hilarious memes when our 3,000-word book report is due tomorrow. Master crammers unite!

  1. When your assignments just aren’t on your side.

Better luck next time.

  1. When curating your Instagram feed is a breeze but formatting a term paper on MS Word is a nightmare.

  1. When you just noped out of reviewing for an exam.

Sigh. It happens to the best of us.

  1. When you got stuck with a classmate who promised to do her part but didn't, one who was on the day of the presentation, and one who was never around and had no idea what was going on.

Bit much, you say? We don't think so.

  1. Also, when group projects make you lose faith in humanity.

Welp, we'll just settle for a pass.

  1. When the teacher asks someone to read a long paragraph from the textbook and gets an, er, unwelcome volunteer.
