Wasting time in every class makes no sense.
No one goes out for football, but doesn’t like football, and therefore goofs off in every practice and game.
But that’s different, Mr. Huhn. No one is required to go out for football. I am required to go to class. Even if I don’t like it.
Fine. Let’s use another example. You probably do not like going to the dentist, yet you must. And when you go to the dentist, you do not waste time and goof off and make everything take longer for everyone else.
But that’s different, too, Mr. Huhn. I only go to the dentist twice a year, but I have to come to school every weekday. And this is the 13th year of it!
First, I hear ya. Thirteen years of sitting is a tough sell.
Second, aha. Now we have arrived at the heart of the matter. You have a decision to make: either don’t come to class, and instead follow your bliss. Or be positive and productive during class. Any other decision is as absurd as the two scenarios I mentioned above.
