You know, I truly hate the hurry-up-and-wait aspect of the beginning of the semester. I know, in mere weeks I'll be bitching incessantly about not having enough time and being overrun with reading assignments and papers, however, the first week or so, before all the weaklings and dilettantes are weeded out through drop/add, are frustrating.
