I BELIEVE that this is a non-practical world and that I can’t count only on what I earn, therefore I believe in procrastination, hard procrastination.
I BELIEVE in Google, which gives me the knowledge to work mediocrely and trains my mind and my hands to get stuff done.
I BELIEVE in kissing-up and visiting office hours, without which I cannot win the passing grade and pity from my fellow professors.
I BELIEVE in a restless mind, in a sleep-deprived body, and a spirit that is very afraid and in clean energy drinks that develop these qualities.
I BELIEVE in obedience to the syllabus because it can save us all.
I BELIEVE in crying, which cultivates sympathy with my fellow professors and mutual helpfulness and rounds 89.5s for all.
I BELIEVE in Quizlet, because it is a place of helpfulness and because it is my own home page and that I can best serve that tool by “doing test-mode, loving game-mode, and clicking quickly through the flashcards with my mouse.”
And because all students believe in these things, I don’t believe in finals week and hate it!
