No matter what you do, you will never feel fully satisfied with how you're spending your time.

As someone who spent all of 3L waking up at 2pm, drinking whiskey and beer while playing Fallout, eating takeout and skipping class: sir, I respectfully disagree.

Realizing it's not UG.

Close second would be figuring out techniques so the professor doesn't call on you.

Trying to avoid wearing the same polo shirt with a whale, alligator, guy on a horse, or sheep thing as someone else in the room.

For me it's:

1. Sheep
2. Guy on Horse
3. Alligator

idk how Whale fits into all of this because I just learned about it today.

If your student Senate can't change the number of hours in a day, is it even worth having them?

Definitely. And just staying away from the stress of everyone else outside of me. Also, the general feeling that you may not have it going on since you have never had to wait until the final test to determine your grade.

I actually find my co-students stress more difficult. I hate whining. HATE it. It can be incessant at times. Whether it's about the professor, the material, etc.I just don't care.
