Five Things That Happen During the First Week of Class

The prospect of a new semester almost seems exciting for a second. Upon going to your first lecture, however, you realize you are in for the same bullshit as every other semester. Ahead are five things that always occur during the first week of classes.

  1. Your professor forgets you know how to read as he painstakingly goes over every inch of the syllabus
  2. Sitting through 50 minute class suddenly seems like the longest time anyone has had to concentrate EVER
  3. Going to three 50 minute classes in a row seems like a cruel and unusual punishment after six weeks off
  4. You don’t remember how to hold a pencil
  5. You realize that all five of your finals are scheduled simultaneously on the same day
