SURGEONS GENERAL WARNING:
Early in May in colleges throughout the land there is an epidemic of jealousy caused by people graduating.Juniors are especially prone to Diploma Envy, this disease is also sometimes called Diplo-mania, by experts in the Senior-itis field.
Having barely survived Junior year, these Juniors glare menacingly at the Seniors who are free as the cussing wind blows. One Junior is confined to a wheelchair kept alive by a Coffee IV drip, without which he would perish immediately.
This is the way that it goes down at my school, which is admittedly one of the weirdest places ever (http://thomasaquinas.edu/home).
- Freshman year- nerds study excessively, party people party themselves out of school
- Sophomore year- the nerds discover parties, the party people remain in school by studying with nerds during finals
- Junior year- Everyone is grouchy. Everyone parties harder than ever (at my school this is in an attempt to forget that Kant exists. Speaking of which, I am gearing up for a series of angry cartoons that I wrote while we were reading Kant's Critique of Pure Reason).
- Senior year- Nobody reads anything. Everybody spends all of their time complaining about reading.
