You know, sitting through four hours of lectures in one day can get exhausting, so it's good to try and find ways to make it more interesting. For example, I now have a reason to pay attention in history because I can collect Stinchisms for the blog. But I'm also a big fan of making drawings to remind myself of the theme of the lecture.
For example, my poli-sci professor was talking about the organization of Congress, and when he mentioned the party whip, I drew a picture of a whip wearing a party hat. I'm also reminded of my horrible statistics class from freshman year, where I attempted to remember the term "root mean square" by drawing a frowning square with lines growing out of it.
This technique doesn't always work, but it's better than doing crossword puzzles in class like certain people I've seen...
As long as I'm writing about lectures...I think I have a sign on my back that says "ask if you can borrow a pen from me."
Listen, dumbasses, if you can't even remember to bring a writing implement to a 300-level class, maybe you should ask yourself if you're really serious about the whole college thing.
You may be wondering if there's a point to this post. And the answer is...no.
