    I had a class in law school where we were provided with the Excel spreadsheet to make computations assuming we used the right inputs.

    Apparently while studying I screwed up one of the cells which threw off all of the outputs. So despite nailing the inputs all of my answers were wrong.

    I think after explaining it to the professor he gave me half credit.

    I came in lazy as shit and drastically underprepared for Wake (also long distance GF and only spending like 3 days a week on campus is a bad idea). Took me until maybe second semester Sophomore year before I figured out how I actually needed to learn/study independently (lectures aint it, I think I only survived in HS by being immersed 5 days a week and tons of rote exercises).

    English was tough as shit. I am not a particularly great writer, but it seemed like the more effort I put in the worse I did (or at least the more I was guaranteed a solid B). Meanwhile in my first English class (175?) I completely skipped reading Beloved and churned out a midterm based on sparknotes read 30 minutes before the class and got an A+. Doesn't pay to be a CRITICAL thinker.

    I was okay at Econ especially w/my boy Heckelman, but it was kind of a struggle in other classes and I was just bored by it way more than I thought I'd be. I am really not good w/spatial reasoning and using visuals/graphs to convey/understand information. I also had a baller Econ professor in HS that made it super fun.

    Switching to Comp Sci was a breath of fresh fucking air though. In most of your classes half the grading is programs. If you write the program and it works it's a guaranteed 100 almost every time if you get it working and meet all the spelled out criteria. Nothing else felt like that at Wake. The tests weren't that much more difficult. Best thing I ever did was switching majors thanks to OliveGardenDeac. I ended up just listing my major GPA on my resume for the few months that it actually mattered.

    lol really funny you bring that up - big to-do locally about how the building owners strung along a local bookshop as if they would be able to rent the space until Posman finalized their deal

    I actually was trolling about that. Very disappointing though. Go support White Whale books!

    That's the kind of underhanded shit you see with VC money all the time. String along companies just to get detailed competitor info for the company they are planning to invest in the whole time. Fucking hate it.

    I don't follow that many people on twitter and you are one one of them, so I assume you liked or retweeted something? Otherwise I do follow a certain TYPE, so it's certainly possible someone else could have.
