Oh, junior year! After years of collegiate classrooms, I have my unspoken rules for the first day of class on lock and strongly enforced. Today, I share my wisdom.
|My reaction to these unspeakable acts.|
I dare you to take my seat. I call dibs from day one until the final. I don’t think you understand how seriously I take classroom seating. Like…don’t even look at my seat. Careful consideration went into my seat selection - I'm close to a quick exit, no further than the third row and near a wall. Furthermore, let’s not play this seat-stealing game; it causes a chain reaction of anger and death glares.
Please don’t decide I’m going to be your partner for every project. Just because I met you for five minutes a year ago outside of the caf…doesn’t mean we should be lab partners. I don’t handle clingy well and like to keep my options open. Choosing a project partner is serious business and encourages a certain level of commitment that I am NOT ready to give. It’s Day One. Calm down.
This is not the day to prove you’ve already read the entire textbook. We get it…you really like accounting. There’s no need to assault everyone in the room with your textbook terminology. Let’s spend twenty minutes reviewing the syllabus and leave. Save your wisdom for the midterm study group.
