When I was in campus there was this one guy who would always out-do everyone when it came to the assignments; we would be in the introduction class for media production and in a week this guy would have figured out how to use a green screen and add news effects while the rest of us just stood in front of a concrete wall and did our news report.
Words cannot describe how much I hated sharing classes with the guy, and on graduation day I thought the nightmare was over, until I was introduced to the next horror in the next phase of life, “Baby shower gifting.” Being dragged to this things by my special someone only for the gifts to be opened and I am left standing there with egg on my face for having the worst gift in the room makes me feel like I am back in my COM 263 class standing in front of a concrete wall where else some guy’s presentation is Emmy worthy.
