Well hello, hello. I haven’t seen you around before. Now what’s a nice girl like you doing slumming it here in the back of the lecture hall?
You want to take a walk on the wild side, huh? You sure about that? It’s not too late to take your Lilly planner and your little Hunter boots and head on back over to the front before Professor Huesman starts talking about genotypes and phenotypes. It may not be as fun, but it’s a much safer place for a girl like you.
If you’re sure. Just make sure you can keep up, because I ain’t going to babysit you all hour. Back here, things move fast, and no one’s holding your hand along the way. You either toughen up or get left behind. And we don’t play by Huesman’s rules, that’s for sure. None of that color- coded note taking bullshit.
We leave our laptops up with a tab open to Facebook. Some of us don’t even take notes at all. See that guy over there? That there’s Petey. Petey keeps a livestream of the game going all through lecture and doesn’t turn it off for nobody. To his left is Ace. Word on the street is Ace is taking this class pass/fail. He’s usually asleep by the second slide.
Don’t act so surprised. I warned you, this ain’t a place for goody-goody’s. Still think you can hack it? Or do you want to take the rich girl act back up to those suckers in front?
You want to stay? Well alright, then. Welcome to the ride of your life, sweetheart. Have a piece of gum.
