October means midterm season. On top of jobs, projects and papers, it also means burnout. Though some classes have moved away from the concept, just as many have kept it. It begs the question — what do we really gain from the tests?
All-nighters and cram sessions don’t help us retain information. It leaves our brains as soon as the test is over. Things like projects and papers help us retain the information way longer — and at the end of the day, isn’t that the point?
We’re so tired we can no longer think. On production days, we’ve listened to “Fruit Salad” by the Wiggles, and it plays on an endless loop in our heads, taking up space where grammatical rules once lived.
Please pardon our short editorial — we, like you, are so burned out and simply do not have it in us.
See you next week after a nice, long nap,
