9 Things Your Professor Probably Said To You On The First Day Of Classes

We've all heard it. Hopefully, you've endured your first day and survived the boring introductions to your classes.

1. "Attendance is mandatory"

Ugh we get it. We pay for class, but show up for class (even though I don't want to).

2. "I don't have to read the syllabus to you"

They say it... but they will continue to read too much of it.

3. "The textbook isn't that expensive"

Listen buddy. I'm only fake rich. I've got that student loan, not a million dollars.

4. "As long as you do the work, you'll pass the class"

But what if you don't wanna do the work?

5. "Not a lot of people pass this class, so you should get a tutor now."

If you hear this, it's a red flag. Run. Find a different professor who is actually going to to do their job and TEACH you.

6. "I realize it's after lunch, but you have to wake up."

You professor will say this to you, even though they're yawning.

7. A very bad mispronunciation of your name.

You just smile, laugh it off, and correct them.

8. "The course schedule is in the syllabus"

Even though you know they won't follow it.

9. "We're gonna have fun this semester"

Yet the only one with the doctorate is saying it.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

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.

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.
