Lynch Sophomore Hoping for 4 Gold Stars on Final; Would Settle for 3
With an important final exam season quickly approaching, Kelly O’Connor (LSOE ‘17) is buckling down for the last stretch of her studies. O’Connor emphasized that her entire semester grades were riding on her Family, School, & Society final exam: If she averages 4 gold stars on her final, then she’s almost guaranteed a job in Boston’s competitive kindergarten teaching market. However, if she underachieves and only averages 3 (or less) gold stars, then she will be “dissatisfied with her performance” and less likely to put herself in a competitive position in the job market.
O’Connor has set aside at least forty-five minutes on each study day to review her material in O’Neill so that she is “super prepared” for her finals. She plans on using her favorite oversized #2 pencils and wide-ruled paper, two items she only brings out during the most critical of times. Though studying may overlap with nap time, she knows that it will be worth it in the long run to really “kick some booty” on her final.
If O’Connor succeeds in getting her 4 gold stars, her Mom is gonna take her to Dave & Busters with “TWO” of her friends.
“It’s going to be hard, but I’m determined,” said O’Connor, while sorting her crayons and sipping from a Strawberry Kiwi Capri Sun. “Does anyone have any Adderall – I mean Skittles – I can buy?”
At press time, O’Connor was studying the complexities of human development within the family, school, community, and greater systems of time and culture and hoping to give back to the world with her knowledge one day, despite the lack of a six-figure salary.
