I take a class every summer or so, and I know for a fact that there are some things I would rather be doing than just studying and doing homework. Especially during the early and late summer days, when it is like the perfect temperature outside for the pool and a Corona with lime. Like let's be honest, I know some of us are trying to be good students and get on track or ahead, but why do we subject ourselves to this torture? Here's just a few thoughts I have during my summer classes.
1. Why did I do this to myself?
Literally so self explanatory; these classes may be shorter than spring and fall terms, but they drag on like a Pre-Depression era cigarette.
2. I probably should have worn shorts today, it's like 100 degrees!
Here I am, in my jeans and blouse, probably sweating enough to produce enough salt water for a small fish tank....
3. WHY did I wear shorts? The chafe is real...
Totally disregard #2 unless you were blessed with thighs that just don't chafe, or if your deodorant is strong enough so you do not have to apply it all day.
4. This class is not too awful
I'm going to kill this class, I've got all this time and work has been slow. Man, I can really pull my average up.
5. I'm sorry, you said my grade is what?
Cancelled the GPA boost, subscribed to Tasty Bartender on Facebook.
6. I'm just going to skip one class, what could go wrong?
I usually say this as I end up at Target and buy out Chip & Joanna's full collection of home goods. RIP to my bank account.
7. Maybe I should go back to class...
My professor posts all the notes and details online, and attendance is not mandatory, but I should go otherwise I won't really learn.
8. Oooohh look! Happy Hour!
Hmmm..... Raspberry, Strawberry or Watermelon margaritas? "Let me try all three of these!"
9. Who are these people in my class?
Either I really missed quite a few classes and do not remember anyone, or I'm in the wrong class.... I think it is the former. Whoops.
10. Project? What project?
Oh you mean it was in the syllabus since the start? I knew I should have printed that out.
11. Who thought we should have summer classes in the first place?
Like honestly, who came up with this college all year long crap? I do not approve.
12. Okay, I can still pull my grade up.
What are the chances of my professor rounding up my 48% to a 90%? I mean they are pretty close.
13. This cram study session will do me some good!
I can totally stay up until like 4 a.m. and get this whole study guide done!
14. OH! A PILLOW!
*2 a.m.* Zzzzzz.....
15. No, really, this isn't that bad...
I can totally do this again next year! I passed, so why not try this again?
Not all of these bullet points are true to me, but have been shared by current or former college students. Students in summer distress approve this message.
