No matter how much you liked to read, nothing makes you drowsier than picking up a textbook.

2. You had to ask each time you wanted to go to the bathroom, and everybody in the room knew about it.

8. Your boss doesn't do roll call each day, calling out each employee's name.

You still probably shouldn't miss work all that often, but at least you don't have to shout, "Here!"

9. That terrible feeling of being totally lost during a lecture but not speaking up because everyone else seems to be following along and you don't want to look dumb.

And then having to discreetly tell your friends that you're essentially just treading water.
