20 Internal Thoughts During Awful Classes

Whether it was a class in your major, or a Gen-Ed, we've all struggled to keep our heads afloat in that one class we were forced to sit through. No matter how hard we tried, it still sucked. You definitely appreciate all the knowledge, but you're so glad it's over.

When your class is an 8 a.m.

You're definitely not OK with this. You roll up with a gigantic cup of coffee and your biggest hoodie, to hide from all the interactions you don't want to have this early.

When you introduce yourself to your classmates.

Maybe you'll make a great friend in this class, but you're not really willing to make any effort in being sociable, so you are completely honest. Take it or leave it, fellow students!

When you find a friend who is just as miserable as you.

You ended up bonding with someone who dislikes this class as much as you. This is friendship on the deepest level. You might see each other out and not really know what to talk about, but there's a secret space in your heart for this person.

When your professor is awful, but kind of cool.

They give you the worst assignments, change due dates last-minute, or maybe they suck at lectures, but how can you be mad at someone who rides a motorcycle to class and listens to the same music as you?

When you’re writing a speech for class.

You are not interested in your topic, at all. You spend weeks trying to figure out what to say but it's still not even close to being something you're proud of.

When your professor asks you a question and you've been zoning out.

You try to pay attention, but you can't stop doodling on the pages of your notebook. You suddenly get called on, and now you're trying to figure out the answer, and also what class you're even in.

When you do answer the question, but your answer is not even close.

Now you have to listen to your professor lecturing you on the correct answer, which now that you know what they're talking about, you totally knew from the beginning.

When the person in front of you takes a Snapchat with you in the background.

There is nothing worse than the person in front of you being on their phone all class. Not only can you not keep your eyes away from what they're doing, but you frequently end up in all of their selfies on Snapchat.

When you want to skip class but you know you shouldn't.

You really don't like this class, but you keep thinking, "sometimes I do learn some stuff... and I pay for this." You end up going, and every time- the professor never takes roll.

When all you can think about is lunch.

You forgot to eat breakfast, and you're running on caffeine alone. On a regular day you have trouble paying attention, but when you're hungry- forget about it.

When your professor assigns you an ungodly amount of work to do.

Oh my gosh, a 20-page paper?! I'm so excited to get started!

When your Thursday isn’t going by fast enough.

The week has been so long, and it's finally Thursday. The struggle is real right now, but you can't wait for tonight.

When there's a new student who is too eager.

There's always that one person who is way too happy to answer all the questions.

When you show up to class hungover.

You weighed the pros and cons once again, and you show up to class like a responsible adult, wishing you had brought your sunglasses, though. Why is everyone talking so loudly?

When your professor suggests a group project.

"I'm going to put you all into groups for this assignment." But, can we not?

When you ace an exam, and you're not really sure how.

You haven't been paying that much attention in class, so when you get that exam back and it's an A, you're ecstatic. Maybe you are learning something here...

When your professor keeps the lights out during their power point. (Or plays a movie, even better...)

It's so comforting to sit in the dark during class because so many things are possible. Am I paying attention? Am I staring at the amazingly attractive person a few seats down? Am I taking notes? The world will never know.

When a classmate is eating a full-course meal in the middle of class.

The chewing sounds are not nice, but you pride anyone who has the courage to eat so much food smack in the middle of an important lecture, especially when it requires a fork and knife.

When your professor acts surprised at the class average being so high.

As a whole, this class is not interested in anything, but that doesn't mean we're stupid. We're paying attention, just not right now.

When your final grade is an A, and you retain what you've learned, you know that class was worth it after all.

Maybe you were just overreacting... Wait, no, that class was still awful.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
