You know you're OCD when your school supplies have a color scheme...or you're just trying to make them aesthetically pleasing to convince yourself to use them and stay on top of your work. I'm going to go with the latter.
But seriously. Boring school supplies make me cringe and I am 100% more likely to pull out my notebook to take notes if I know I'm going to look cute doing it. Does that make me vain? I'm going to have to say that's a risk I'm willing to take.
As we all know, I almost flunked out of college last semester. And by all, I mean, yes, my mother found out. She decided to spare my life just this once and let me give it another try. I've decided to take extreme measures to ensure my success this semester.
1. Take a class with an attractive professor.
English is a go. I think the "attractiveness" scale is a little off-balance when it comes to rating your professor, because though I would never stop and double-take if I were to see him on the street, I can definitely sit through his lectures for an hour on M/W/F. I wouldn't dare disappoint him by not showing up.
2. Take a class that a TA-turned-professor is teaching.
Looks like 3rd time is a charm for Spanish. Failed it first semester, dropped it second semester...annnnd here I am once again. To my great fortune, my super-nice TA from my first semester is now a professor and he still has the naivety that young professors have. He does grade bumps, understands necessary reasons for missing class, AND he remembers very vividly what it was like to be a student. Because he was one. Like, one semester ago.
3. Take an online class.
Because no one can stare with judgement that I'm not wearing a bra, not wearing pants, and, in all likelihood, drinking a glass of wine. Bring on PolySci.
