You Might be a Busy College Student if . . .

  • You're excited that you only have 30 pages left until you're done with your reading in David Copperfield . . . for last Monday.
  • The entire sum of groceries you've bought in the past two weeks consists of two packets of peppermint hot chocolate and a bag of black jelly beans. (Doesn't anyone else like those?)
  • You wake up in the morning and can't remember when you went to sleep.
  • Halfway through Organic Chemistry, you try to figure out if there's some discreet way you could sneak out and just take a nap.
  • You try to justify that fact that you're eating two meals at Taco Bell today because at least . . . okay, so you can't really justify that. But you do it anyway.
  • There's a knot in your back from falling asleep on top of David Copperfield. Curse Dickens and his large novels.
  • You're frantically searching your blog archives for some old creative writing piece that you could workshop for class today instead of trying to write something new.
  • You don't know how you're going to survive next week when you have a new class for second block. No more Productive Tuesdays.

I have a few more for you:

You sleep on the couch b/c you're waking up early the next morning and don't want to disturb your roommate.

You sometimes forget that you haven't eaten at all that day.

You use old poems for your workshop group instead of writing new ones like you're supposed to.
