Seeing our favorite teams lose and fail to meet expectations triggers a soft spot because we’re all dealing with meeting expectations. Sure, ours aren’t coming from millions of fans. They’re coming from friends, family and ourselves. But, that doesn’t make them any less significant.

Freshmen anticipate adding to their “bookshelf” of knowledge, whereas upperclassmen believe they’ll only need the knowledge the duration of the semester, and then POOF, out it goes with the spring cleaning. It’s not that the freshmen are wrong: in fact, they’re completely right in spirit. But, the upperclassmen know the practical phenomena of the classroom: whereby memory cycles operate on four-week intervals (unless, heaven forbid, the final is cumulative).

There are individuals who talk about how they’ve been writing/reading ever since they could walk, and use this fact as proof of some sort of natural talent, all the while ignoring the inherent privilege that comes with being born here and/or being raised by parents who also speak the (SAE) language fluently.
