We have all come to know and love the beauty that is "Sylly week."
"Sylly week," or "Syllabus week," is the week after classes start. All of your professors do nothing but talk about the syllabus and the upcoming semester. Usually, these classes are not the length of the average class (mine are generally 20-30 minutes.)
However, this week can be both a blessing and a curse. A blessing, because for those who are new to college or maybe didn’t figure out the quickest way to get to that class, professors are still lenient on timing. The professors are also very sweet and forgiving at this time of the year.
Curse, because its a whole week without homework. All that free time with your friends whom you've just been reunited with can be... tempting.
Alas, it is no longer sylly week. Making the change to actual semester work can be shocking to the system. And you may have some thoughts on the matter, or maybe regrets.
1. Partying on Sunday was a mistake.
Frat parties, man…never again.
2. I still haven’t bought all of my books, or school supplies...
Who needs pens?
3. Is my class this way? I went there last week, so I should know this.
I'll just wander down the hall until I see something familiar...
4. All my cute outfits were used last week.
is it acceptable to wear sweats yet?
5. Wait, my professor is talking so fast...
Go back a slide, or three...
6. WE HAVE A TEST THIS WEEK?
We haven't learned anything yet!
7. I guess I do need to buy textbooks after all.
Time to sell my kidney...
8. Cool no exams! Just four 10-page papers…
The most bittersweet thing to ever be printed on a syllabus.
9. Wait does that say group presentations?
10. Why did I think this semester would be easy?
I am such a fool.
