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!

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
