The first day of class gets to everyone-college students included

I was in class with a glazed look on my face when I noticed that the majority of the people around me were taking notes.

I was surprised.

Why? Because the material wasn’t from the book or anything, it was the syllabus in PowerPoint form. Nothing to warrant nervous scribbling and incessant note-taking, right?

It was nuts. Everyone around me working feverishly (for nothing, mind you) like little worker ants building their homes. I stopped laughing in my head long enough to be thankful that although I will be walking straight into another one, I am happy that it’s only a matter of time before I leave this one.

I wonder what it is that makes students act like that?

Is it school or going to college that makes us feel like we’re going to miss something?

    How silly of them. They’re only to get a copy of it anyways. Or they can print one out. Sigh.

    -P.S. – Love that you’re doing blog posts now. =)

    Thanks, Dom! I plan to add to this one since it was kind of a trial run!
    I love doing these.
