Sophomore Wonders: ‘How Loud Do I Need To Sigh In O’Neill For People To Know I’m Pre-Med?’
O’NEILL LIBRARY — After a particularly exhausting day of classes and labs (which are like classes but longer and even more difficult), pre-med student Charlotte Richards (MCAS ’20) retired to the fourth floor of O’Neill hoping for nothing but a little sympathy. Though everyone in her vicinity seemed to be working studiously, she just would have liked everyone to be aware that she was working more studiously than them.
“No offense, but like I just think chemistry is a little bit harder than psychology, right?” Richards said to her friend who had begun complaining about an upcoming exam.
Richards reportedly let out several long and dramatic sighs in the hopes that people would look over and realize the difficulty, intensity, and rigor, that she as a future doctor is currently dealing with.
However, these sighs went generally unnoticed by her fellow library-goers.
“How loud do I need to sigh for people to know how much more work I have?” pondered Richards.
Though she admits that she freely chose to take on this work in pursuit of her dream career, Richards maintains that she thought given her Grey’s Anatomy-themed laptop stickers, people would know that she has an exclusive monopoly on complaining about studying, being #onthegrind, and any study related pity that her fellow classmates may be willing to give out.
Though the actual decibel level of sigh needed for other students to know that Richards is in fact on the Pre-Med track remains a mystery, at press time Charlotte continued to sigh loudly. She then angrily requested that no one should even get her started on education majors who try to complain about their “workload.”
