I Thought You’d Never Ask! Alex Elfreich

If you were stuck on a roller coaster with a celebrity, who would it be? Bill Cosby. I think we’d have a funny conversation instead of firing off one-liners. Which book best describes your life? “The Phantom Tollbooth.” It’s full of witticisms, wisdom, and a quest for rhyme and reason. Sounds like the pieces of anybody’s life. Five years ago, what did you see yourself doing right now? I saw myself a little older and a little wiser, sipping a mug of coffee on the deck of my riverside home. I think I might have looked too far ahead. What’s your favorite thing to eat at the end of the day? Cheesecake. Eating time is proportionate to the addition of strawberries or whipped cream.

Six pages, typed, double-spaced with oneinch margins. The deadline for the application is next Monday. The exam consists of fifty questions and is worth thirty pecent of your final grade. Job opportunities are limited, so apply now. Please include two letters of reference. You have two projects and a paper due within the same week. Your supervisor requests additional hours for the busy time of year. Remember to email the group about the project we have to present on Wednesday. Read the next two chapters for next class and be ready to take a quiz and discuss the material. Remember to check your financial aid status. You must consult your academic advisor regarding problems about missing classes. The last day to drop a class without a failing grade is next Friday. Do you have enough money to go out this weekend? Have you figured out where you’re living next year? It seems like there isn’t enough time in the day. I’ve only gotten six hours of sleep this week.

STRESSED Every student feels stress, but not everyone handles it the same. We’re here to help.
