Twitter Thread: Guy Learns Lesson In Selflessness From Classmate

This guy's story about misinterpreting a fellow classmate's antics is a solid lesson in mindfully thinking outside of oneself. We go on to learn that the guy's classmate was just trying to save his seat and befriend him. Sounds like the two end up getting along well and finally having that lunch by the end of the story.

Many of us have been in the middle of a situation where we are weighed down by having to carry classmates who refuse to pitch in on a project specifically designed to call upon everyone's efforts.

Most Useless Things Students Were Taught In School

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the most useless bits of information that students were taught in school. We've all been there.

Quick Quora Post On The Word "Smart"

Some folks might connect with this Quora post that aims to break down the implications of the assigning the word smart to different individuals.

Smartest/Most Creative Ways Students Cheated

Students will go to extraordinary lengths to not have to study for that next, dreaded exam. Seriously, it's remarkable. We're talking devious kids printing out fake Snapple labels with answer keys on the labels; we're talking students collaborating to cheat off each other's tests by using M&M's; we're talking students tapping their fingertips on their desks to create some kind of morse code.

Biggest Lies People Heard About College

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the biggest lies that people heard about college. As it turns out, sometimes college isn't as tough and completely soul-grinding as it's made out to be. Or, on the flip side, folks share that it's not necessary to go to college to avoid finding oneself in an unwanted life situation. In fact, so many are out there crushing it with no college background. It ultimately comes down to what one wants to do. No telling what the final outcome will be.
