7. You routinely walk into the wrong classroom.

Because memorizing your schedule is way too much work.

8. So it’s a good thing you have no qualms about walking out whenever you want.

Because your phone battery was low, or you were done drinking your coffee, or you decided you needed a nap. Any excuse will do, really.

17. You’re always the first in the room to finish any midterm or final exam.

There’s that brief moment of looking around the room at everyone still writing and thinking you maybe missed a question… But it passes very quickly, replaced by the glowing promise of a nap.

23. If you’d been allowed to major in procrastination, you’d graduate Cum Laude.

As things stand, you’re graduating Phi Beta Nappa.

26. Or if you should be concerned that reading this list has taken up your entire reading quota for the week…

Sorry, profs.

27. Oh, well. No time to dwell. There are video-games to be played, after all, and there are naps to be taken.
