I don’t do many strips where the guys are being “guys”. Usually, they are being “geeks”. This strip is about the observation that, wintertime is the end of skirts and shorts. It’s always a little bit of a downer. You pack away the shorts and sandles, and get out the sweaters and snow boots. Winter can be a nice season, but give me spring and summer anytime.
I’m starting to feel the pressure as finals draw near. This is supposed to be a dead week so you can study and prepare for finals. Apparently, no one informed my instructors that’s how things are supposed to go. I still have a bunch of work to do this week. I am trying to stay on top of things and finish the year strong. However, I am not a very good test taker. I tend to freak myself out. Then in a panic, I do poorly. I am more of a practical application guy. I need to be able to apply knowledge and problem solve on the fly. Anyone that knows me knows my memory is terrible. Good luck getting me to remember a name or phone number. So, when it comes to just stored knowledge that you need for a test I am not the guy. (Except for comic book knowledge. I remember comic book information.) I work hard during the semester so that finals don’t “make or break” me. My goal is always to just survive and hope my good class work can keep me afloat. Wish me luck down the stretch as I draw near the end of the semester. I need all the help I can get.
Also, I shouldn’t let it go unnoticed that this is our 150th strip. How cool is that?
