Mostly A’s 


Funeral home director


Your black sense of humour and poor circulation means you’re a natural choice for this job. Despite the anti-social nature of the industry, you’ll be able to compensate at house parties with the best work stories. Just save them until after everyone’s eaten.


Mostly B’s 


Fortune teller


Incense? Check. Tarot cards? Check. Weird rock from the beach that you insist is obsidian quartz? Check. You’ve always had a fascination for stars and shiny things, so capitalise on that and misname yourself as ‘an enigma.’ You’re so random, Virgo x 


Mostly C’s 


I don’t know what to tell you, bro. Just go back for masters next year. You can take the person out of university, but you can’t take the crippling fear of the real world out of the person! 


Mostly D’s 


Vape connoisseur


Everyone laughed at you when you said you were studying Food Science. Are you going to be a cook? they’d sneer. Now who’s laughing? You’ll get to spend your days swilling clouds of artificial candy floss smog in your mouth, and you’re close to mastering the perfect ‘O’ anyway. You’ll get addicted to nicotine and won’t be welcome in most cafes anymore, but you’ll sure show the haters!
