I DID meet a fake geek girl once. Turned out she was in fact an assortment of squirrels in a trenchcoat.
Those squirrels sure did know a lot about Batman, though.

So we were playing Lego Harry Potter today and realized that Elphias Doge is totally a character. Fortunately a lot of people already beat me to it.
i can’t believe it’s 2014 and there’s still no gay romantic comedy about vin diesel and dwayne johnson falling in love

I can think of slightly worse things. At least Arthur is dreamy.
WELP. Now I need to buy horrific demon-bursting shower curtain.
"if you’re so stressed out from school why don’t you just study more or take fewer classes??"
the school I went to literally had this policy that everything over 13 credits was a free class. I think in a sense, this was a brilliant strategy. It saved students money, and a lot of them graduated - or probably had mental breakdowns. I always loaded up with at least 17 or 19 each semester.
To give some prespective, a credit is supposed to be worth an hour of class per week. So a five credit class meets for five hours in a single week. (One hour per day, for example.)
However, that said, each class gives approximately two or three hours of homework per credit per week.
At 17 credits, that’s 68 hours you have to spend either being in class and studying. I’m using this as an estimate because there’s also commuting times, and times between classes, and times you have to do other things.
I also had to work 20 to 30 hours on any given week.
That brings us to 93.
I’ll add in five nights worth of 8 hours of sleep, which is recommended.
That’s three hours more than there are hours in a five-day period.
Which, frankly, is not too conducive to survival if you think about your need to eat, go shopping for food and just regular maintenance.
Unless you just slept straight through saturday and went grocery shopping sunday.
Which, I’m sure, sounds like a great idea in college.
I decided my freshman year that I wanted to double-major, so I always had to take at least 16 credits per semester. But usually it was at least 17 and more like 18-19 because of labs and smaller classes (PE gen ed requirements mostly). I did the math my senior year and realized that if I was *actually* doing the amount of work expected per credit, the math would come out like chekhovandowl says above. 68 hours is WAY more than a full-time job, and you don’t even get paid for it. I, however, was a lackluster student who never put in the “expected” amount of time per class.
I’m proud that I finished and got decent grades, obviously. But I sure as hell don’t miss it.
