After midterm 1:
Me: How did it go?
Classmate: That midterm sucked. I totally flunked that. There goes my 4.0.
Me: (Thinking) Really? I thought it was easy. (Saying) Oh I know, it was hard.
After midterm 2:
Professor: Are you sure you’re done?
Me: (Saying) Oh I’m more than sure. (Thinking) Am I?
Maybe studying does payoff. I wish I could brag about it instead of listening to classmate after classmate complaining about a test which I thought clearly covered what we should know by now. Sure we all make mistakes but if that 4.0 kid flunked that test, he didn’t deserve a 4.0 to begin with.
Professor, I know you may be used to some students who don’t do anything, but I actually pay attention to you in class and do the readings because I find this thing interesting.
Readers, time to sleep for reals for the first time in five days…
