91 end of the semester thoughts you know you’ve had.

You know you’ve thought these things.

The struggle is real.

Don’t deny it.

  23. What? I can specialize?
  24. Why are there so many options?
  25. This is worse than an all you can eat buffet.
  27. I can’t possibly type in an option, I have no idea what the answer is… or is there a correct answer?
  28. Where is the “none of the above option” when you actually need it? Grrrrrrr!
  29. Send off urgent help email to academic advising.
  30. Receives the automated response saying the office has a “high demand of requests at the moment” ( they are indeed very helpful 🙂 )
  31. Wait, declaring this isn’t set in stone right?
  32. I changed my mind now that I’ve sent this in…
  33. *Receive response: No, phew, this isn’t set in stone. I can’t specialize…why would you ask me that if I can’t!
