Why I ditch class

For every hour of class that I go to, I could be doing something else.  Many times, there isn’t that much impact on my grade, or my life.

At the beginning of the quarter, before CS194 lectures stopped, I had 2.5 hours of C348b, 2.5 hours of CS244, and 2.5 hours of CS194 every week (they each met TuesThurs).  That’s 7.5 hours in total each week.

What can I do in 7.5 hours?  Well, let’s see…

Yeah, those all got written over a combined sum of ~7 hours.  Think about the value of either option.

 

Throw in another 7 hours and you’ll get these two:

…the latter of which has already touched many people’s lives.

(note: not meant to be a serious argument; you can’t substitute timeframes directly like this.  but, it’s still pretty elucidating ;P)

    People who attend class also feel like they should be doing something else. ;)
