seriously… I don’t get how teenagers and twenty-somethings do college at all….
1) If I were this frustrated 20 years ago, I totally would have given up and gone drinking by now (which I often did, and hence some of the problems I had when I was an undergrad).
2) I have a house. In my house I have an office. My office is specifically constructed for me to do work. Like, I have walls that are whiteboard from ceiling to floor. How the hell do people work in libraries and computer clusters? I realize there are whiteboards and stuff in libraries and public computer labs, but people like erase them. Look at this picture. This is the contents of my brain over the last 3 weeks or so. If this whiteboard were to be erased the chances of me finishing this paper would essentially be zero.
3) They don’t let you take beer into the libraries and computer clusters. It simply is not possible to write a 20 page paper without beer. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying.
