Reflections on the Year at large while avoiding studying Multivariable Calculus

Spike Milligan was an artilleryman during WWII, and after the evacuation of Dunkirk he had the chance to talk to a man who had survived the whole bloody mess. Upon Milligan's asking "What was it like?" the man replied "Like, son? It was a f**k-up, a highly successful f**k-up." Those of you who have been (un)fortunuate enough to talk to me late at night no doubt have found this phrase a recurring theme in my conversations. And indeed, upon retiring last night, I still found it interesting that I cannot comprehend myself having slogged my way through a year of college. The Rangers at Pointe-du-Hoc (for another war comparison) were forced to scale a 100-ft shale cliff, while under small arms fire from Germans at the top. Many of them (the ones who survived) tried to climb the ropes later, after the battle was over and they were given a chance to rest and recover. Not many of them were able to duplicate their frantic climb to the top.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, it's the crazy days that make us shine. And without the "f**k-up's" we wouldn't be able to quanitfy or qualify the measure of our own success. So here's to the craziest time of them all: College.
With that in mind, here's my schedule for next year. Subject to change with/without notice.
