Advice from Nick who has a boat and enjoys fishing

(From Nick AMH 2020)
If there is anything that I have learned from being in school, it is how to fail a class. This is not something that I am happy about or proud of it is just what I have learned through many years of schooling. 

The first step is to not show up to class. Showing up to class is something that can be tough for some students, especially when this so-called student has a boat and enjoys fishing. As an avid fisherman I like to take my boat out at least 3 times a week, sometimes the weather isn’t on your side so in order to make the good bite 3 times in one week it calls for skipping class. I understand that you need to go take good notes in order to ace that test, but what feels better then lugging that 10lb bass over the gunnel. 

My second step is to not pay attention during class. There are so many interesting things to look at out that side window so why not look? I have countless times seen squirrels, even the occasional mole scurry across the side yard of the HSS building so why not spend the class period looking for them. It is basically like watching planet earth away from home, and who could ask for more than that. Thirdly, studying makes the brain hurt. After getting up and sitting through lecture 4 days a week why in the world would I think about studying? I heard what the teacher said when I was there (you tell yourself) so why would I need to study? If you are to follow these 3 rules you should be able to fail any class that stands in your way. So, say it with me!! Don’t let the schoolin’ interrupt your boolin!!
(p.s. these are not the tactics I used in your class, I enjoyed it, but the tests were tough)
