WESTWOOD—Despite years of experience suggesting otherwise, third year political science major Gianna Palos still thinks next quarter will be better. “I’m really going to crack down and stay on top of things this time. I already looked up all of my professors’ office hours and wrote them down in my planner. I’m gonna try and make sure all of them know my name by the time the term is over,” said Palos, blatantly ignoring her consistent record of procrastinating, avoiding exercise, and forgetting to call her mother. “Maybe I’ll get a fitness pass too. I’m pretty busy these days, but I think getting up early to work out would really help restore my sense of purpose. God, that would be so nice.” At press time, Palos was seen searching through her pile of old textbooks for a cookbook of easy meal prep recipes.
