Quick Tumblr Thread Of Professors With Max Chill

Some of us grew up hearing from our high school teachers that college professors were going to be insufferably difficult. Some of us ended up with that being the case. Then others, others encountered professors with surreal levels of chill or just genuine detached boredom. Whether these email exchanges are real or not, they certainly paint quite the pretty, relaxed picture of what the higher education life can be like. I wonder if it's even more ridiculous nowadays with everyone being forced to complete their studies from home.

Um, coolest teacher ever. Apparently this teacher was trying to motivate his students to score an "80" or better on their next test, and it looks like his motivation tactic worked. They were ready to cut that hair!

It's quick little exchanges like this that spotlight just how much things have changed. Yes, in those olden days before emails were around people were still able to get stuff done. Might've taken a little extra exertion, but the world still kept spinning madly on. Anyone who has ever had a conversation with someone in a younger generation has likely had that, "dang I'm getting old" moment.
