11 Ways To Make A Boring Lecture Less Boring And Awful
MTV Films

Listening to an old white guy, no matter how sweet he may be, ramble about topics I don't really care about isn't exactly my idea of a grand ole time.

Unfortunately, I do have to go to class or my grade will suffer simply due to the cursed attendance sheet.

But then I got an idea. An awful idea. I had a wonderful, awful idea: I should spend all my money on snacks. Snacks make everything better, even boring lectures.

It got me thinking, what else can I do to make this time block better?

1. Snacks.

Being hangry during class is asking for a freaking meltdown no child in their terrible twos could even compete with. But for the love of all good things, nothing odorous or crunchy.

2. Coffee.

I am a true caffeine addict and I am not afraid to say it. Perks me right up and makes me happy. It can do the same for you.

3. Long bathroom breaks.

This might be tied in with coffee consumption if you're not careful. In long classes, it's nice to take your sweet time walking to the bathroom. It's refreshing, really.

4. Work on other homework.

This sounds terrible but hear me out. At least this way it doesn't feel like a total waste of time.

5. More snacks.

Keeps ya fat and happy.

6. Listen to music with only one earphone.

I get it. Some people have a hard time focusing without music. If this would make your class easier, go for it.

7. Silently judge everyone's commentary.

Whoa, hold your judgment back for a second, Nancy. You have to really pay attention to what everyone is saying in order to fairly judge them. So really, you are doing yourself a favor by tuning in.

8. Make a buddy.

Do not talk to the buddy. That would be incredibly rude and annoying. Go home if you are going to distract others! However, sitting next to said buddy brings comfort that you are not in this alone.

9. Watch Netflix with subtitles on.

This one seems a little ridiculous to me. Like, at this point just go home, bro. But, if you must...

10. Did I mention snacks?

Food makes everything better and this is why America is obese.

11. Let your mind wander.

Sometimes the most entertaining moments in life are when we are deep in thought about really stupid, unnecessary information.

Honestly, that is all I got. Just remember: When in doubt — snacks.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
