100 Thoughts You Have Sitting Through In A 2-Hour Lecture

When will the torture end?

100 Thoughts You Have Sitting Through In A 2-Hour Lecture
Samantha Frost

Forgive me, father, for I have sinned. By father, I mean literally my biological father.

I am wasting your money ($1 a minute to be exact) by sitting in my lecture, not focusing and more specifically, writing an article on what I am thinking during this torturous two-hour block of listening to a sweet old white guy talk about... well, actually, I don't really know what he is talking about.

That reminds me:

1. Wait what are we talking about?

2. Man, I could really go for a Starbucks run right about now.

3. Do you think the prof would notice if I slipped out and returned with a panini and a latte?

4. Oh shit. FOCUS.

5. I wonder what Khloe Kardashian is up to.

6. I should go to the gym after class.

7. LOL, nah.

8. Rom-coms are a fucking scam. There is not a single hot guy in here.

9. Wait. Why are people taking notes? Should I be taking notes?

10. OK, took a couple notes, time to reward myself with SnapChat.

11. Why does that kid always feel the need to share his opinion?

12. I am only pretty sure I know what we're talking about but I know 100% that you are deadass wrong.

13. Class has to almost be over, right?

14. Oh bloody hell, we are only 35 minutes in.

15. I need to make some loyal friends who will sign my name on the attendance sheet.

16. Did my professor just say "pornography"?

17. Holy shit, sweet George is talking about porn.

18. Oh right, this is a Freedom of Speech class.

19. Are you telling me porn is protected by free speech?

20. Go 'Merica.

21. Are liberals allowed to say "go 'Merica" or is that like a confederate-flag-on-your-truck type of thing?

22. Bitch, why would you bother coming to class if you're just going to show up 40 minutes late?

24. Alright, so 40 minutes down. 80 to go.

25. I really wish that chick wouldn't have come in late because I wouldn't have looked at the clock.

26. I would thoroughly enjoy chatting with my neighbor right now but that is such a freshman move to pull.


28. Oh my gosh. Shut up, you dumb twat. You have no idea what you are talking about.

29. Is it weird that I drop the f-bomb 12 times an hour but won't take the Lord's name in vain?

30. My momma raised me right.

31. Wait why did that chick just tell my prof about the phone number 696-9696?

32. Did she just say "just strippers"? That was rude.

33. Damn. Strippers work so hard and get shit on by society.

34. People need to be nicer and more respectful to strippers.

35. Maybe I should pay attention. This is actually kind of interesting.

36. What ever happened with Lady Doritos?

37. I feel like you can tell a lot about a person on what time of Doritos they like.

38. Cool Ranch: Try-hard people or a Chaco wearer.

39. Nacho cheese: Classic, traditional people. Probably owns Sperrys.

40. Spicy Doritos: Middle school boys.

41. Are there more Doritos?

42. I am so hungry.

43. Can we take a break soon?

44. Sex.

45. Stop thinking about sex during class.

46. Wow, I am going to hell for sure.

47. Knock on wood.

48. Did George just say "sex"?

49. What in the hell does this have to do with media law?

50. I love my major.

51. Go journalism.

52. This article is probably not hard-hitting journalism.

53. Oh boy. What if future employers read this?

54. I doubt they would get this far.

55. Who the hell reads 55 points?

56. What the fuck? How am I at 56 points?

57. FOCUS.

58. Bitch, I'm back and looking better than ever.

59. Oooh, text message.

60. OK, well, it is from my mom.

61. I have no friends.

62. Damn, that guy was so cute and then he bleached his hair and looks like the Nazi from "The Sound of Music."

63. Is it OK to call someone a specific Nazi?

64. Calling someone a Nazi is definitely not OK unless they are like actually a Nazi.

65. Oh boy. This is a bad rabbit hole to get into.

66. OK, 53 minutes into class. You got this.



69. Ha. 69

70. "The Office" is genuinely hilarious.

71. Maybe I should watch "The Office" with subtitles on.


73. Why does that guy get under my skin so much?

74. I am for sure going to Starbucks during our break.

75. Whoever put the Starbucks next to the journalism department is a genius.

76. Facebook break.

77. Damn, that was so nice of UMP to back me up in the group chat.

78. Oh yeah, I should explain UMP.

79. UMP = Unlabeled Monogamous Partner.

80. UMP is pretty ironic considering it is a label.

81. IDK, I think UMP should be the new BAE.

82. Monogamous is really hard to spell.


84. Lol jk. I am a clingy bitch.


86. WTF am I still doing here? I am going to Starbucks!

87. Woops. I was gone a lot longer than five minutes.

88. The world needs to know about my Justin's chocolate hazelnut butter blend and toasted plain bagel combination.

89. This article was not sponsored by Starbucks.

90. I should see if I can get this sponsored by Starbucks.

91. That was delicious.

92. Snacks make everything better.

93. I should start bringing snacks to class.

94. I wonder when the last time I had a vegetable was.

95. Uh oh. The class just collectively gasped.

96. What are we talking about?

97. Oh hell yeah. 20 minutes left.

98. Please let us out early.


100. Later, beotches!

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

college students waiting in a long line in the hallway

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
