i’m a terrible student

I love epiphanies. Tonight, while studying for midterms, I realized that I am a terrible terrible student. I rarely do homework on time; I am almost never caught up on the material during lectures; and I am perpetually kissing deadlines, waiting for the last possible moment to finish. I stopped caring about grades (which is good), but I also manage to not learn the material (which is bad for my life.)

How did a terrible student like me wind up at a place like this?

I realize that being a god-awful student qualifies for membership in a huge fraternity of people who are procrastinators, cheators, grade grubbers, and the like. It hurts me especially to find out that I am a terrible student because… I always thought of myself as an educated person who craved knowledge and despised ignorance.

alright, back to cramming…
