    “On the spot: Yessenia Figueroa, family studies and human development senior”

    With a major like that I would think that you would probably have a couple of boring classes?

    They’re actually pretty interesting.

    But the gen eds are still brutal no matter which way you slice it.

    Yeah, mm hmm. Pretty much all of them.

    What do you do if you get bored in class? How do you get through it?

    I draw.

    You just draw stuff? Or is it doodling?

    No, I guess it’s really doodling. I’m not a very good drawer, but I still try.

    So what do you like to doodle?

    Just anything. Stuff like trees or people who are in the class, stuff like that.

    You’re not a game player when you’re bored?

    Uh, no. Not really.

    You wouldn’t bring your computer to class and get online or anything?

    Um, no. It’s too heavy to carry around.

    Well what kind of phone do you have?

    I have a palm.

    Well you can get on the Internet with that thing, right?

    Yeah, I can. I just don’t use that much.

    Then how come you don’t Facebook it up?

    (Laughs) I guess I could do that, too. Yeah.

    Have you ever been tempted to bring a pillow to one of your classes?

    Not really.

    Well I certainly have a time or two. What’s the worst class that you’ve ever taken here at the UA in terms of boring level?

    (Pauses) Oh, chemistry.

    What was so bad about it?

    Uh, it was just really hard to pay attention, and chemistry is pretty boring anyway.

    What grade did you get?

    Uh, a “”B”” (laughs).
