Thoughts on Grad School

1.) The person who contributed to the first discussion board three days before the term even started needs to chill out.

2.) I contributed the following to a discussion board for my Marketing class: "It makes it much easier for consumers to buy more than they intended to (or as I like to call it, the "Target effect")." The Target effect?  It's like I think I'm a blogger or something... 

3.) Discussion board threads.  Need there be so many?  I don't like having to jump around so much. And the award for Laziest Grad Student goes to... 

4.) I had no idea I could highlight or write in my rental textbook.  Cheers to that, although I kind of feel like I'm helping the next person cheat.  So cheers to... enabling?

5.) It's a good thing this season of So You Think You Can Dance is over, because last Tuesday night proved that SYTYCD takes precedence over studying.  Oops.  "Oh, my gosh!  It was, like, one time!"  (I know Meg will appreciate that reference.)


That's a lot of text, so here's a school-related picture for you:

I thought I was such a bad-ass on my college graduation day.

Discussion boards are the worst! I always posted an extra post just in case the teacher didn't like one of mine. haha

If I saw a classmate write about the Target effect, I would immediately deem them as my virtual study buddy ;)

Love you!

Oh dang. Discussion board THREE DAYS before the term started? That's just disgusting. I am disgusted. Also? I loathe discussion board. The bane of my existence in college.

I witnessed the target effect on my lunch break yesterday. Whoopsies.

ohhhhh waves in your hurrr totes threw me off, and I did NOT think that was you until I read your caption!! Love it!

I used to HATE discussion boards... mandatory discussion boards at that!! Sometimes the things people commented were like, "really??? did you read the post??"... similar to blogging LOL

Have fun with it!

xo, Bev

LOL "it's like I'm the only blogger or something..." I felt that way so many times during school!! And I hate those overachievers that try to one-up or jump ahead. Chilllll bro!!!

Who contributes to the discussion board before class starts? They need to majorly chill. Please continue this series. I love it!I feel like I'm at grad school too...without all the work.
