How you know you’re an English major: you never do the reading for your classes.

  • me: this is the literal worst thing I have ever written omg why did I even turn it in.
  • professor/editor/audience: this is great! awesome work on this!
  • me: i'm feeling pretty confident on this. I'm happy with the final result.
