“The Crazy” is the feeling people get around final exams.  Some have it all year.  Regardless, it’s annoying.

Ever have a student be so nice to you and then knife you?  This letter is for them.  Whether they ask for a letter or not.

Perfect Class (Sung To One Direction’s Perfect)

Student: Should I take your class?

 

Me: (Breaks into song)

I might never be your favorite professor

I might never be the one from whom you take a class for pleasure

And I might never be the one who brings you A minuses or better

But I can be the prof, be the prof for a semester.

 

When I first saw you

From across the room

I could tell that you were studious

Student, I hope you’re sure

What you’re looking for

‘Cause I’m not good at making promises (about grades)

 

But if you like studying hard in library rooms

And if you like having rapid fire questions so fast like sonic booms

If you like to do the things you know that lawyers do

Student, My class is perfect

The class is perfect for you

 

And if you like midnight studying with your spirits down

And if you like looking up latin words you can’t even pronounce

If you like to not do whatever you’ve been dreaming about

This class is perfect

This class is perfect

So let’s start class right now

What courses should you be taking?  You can read this.  Or forward it to a friend who can take an opposing viewpoint.

Reading excuse form when you’re called on in class.

Excuse form for when you miss class.

There are ways to prevent someone from pushing your buttons.  There are even ways to assure that you don’t push your own buttons.  Learning patience, via Above the Law.

There are different types of friendships.  There are the friends who are always there, through rain and sun.  There are the fair-weather friends, who abruptly ghost you during dark times.  There are the FINOs, friends in name only, who smile to your face as they insert knives.

Help me demonstrate that Twitter followers can be the first kind of friend.  Help me help someone else.  Via Above the Law.

Just a castaway

An article lost at sea

Another lonely day

With no one here but me

More footnoting

Than any one could bear

Rescue me before I fall into despair

 

I’ll send an article out to the world

I’ll send an article out to the world

I hope that someone accepts my

I hope that someone accepts my

I hope that someone accepts my

A year has passed since I wrote my article

But I should have known this right from the start

Only hope can keep me together

Editors can mend your life

But they can break your heart

 

I’ll send my article out to the world

I’ll send my article out to the world

I hope that an editor totally gets my

I hope that an editor gets my

I hope that an editor gets my

Woke up this morning

Don’t believe what I saw

A hundred billion rejections

Washed up on the shore

Seems my article was left alone

Now my article is a castaway

Looking for a home

 

I’ll send my article out in August

I’ll send my article out in August

I hope that someone else gets my

I hope that someone else gets my

I hope that someone else gets my
