    “On the spot: Connor James, Pre-business freshman”

    So finals are just around the corner. How much stuff have you put off?

    (Laughs) Oh, the whole thing.

    What do you have left to do, then, specifically?

    Everything. I have to write a four-page paper, a four-page analysis on that paper. I have to study for my Italian class, which I haven’t gone to in two weeks. (Laughs) And then I have to, um, yeah, just two more finals that I have to study for.

    Double-spaced or single-spaced on those papers?

    Oh, double-spaced, so it’s not that bad.

    So why did you do all that for yourself?

    Oh, actually I work better under pressure.

    All right, I like your style. I’m kind of the same way. So what are you least looking forward to doing?

    The least? Um …

    Is it the analysis of the paper you haven’t written yet?

    No, no, not that. I (pauses) actually it’s my Italian final. I have, I’m completely lost in that class.

    When was the last time you went? Give me the date.

    Um, it was a Friday two weeks ago because I remember I was going to do that right before Thanksgiving break. (Laughs)

    So what are you most nervous about for that class?

    Oh, just getting a big fat “”F.””

    But you’re a freshman so you’ve got like, what, seven more semesters left to get at least a “”C,”” right?

    (Laughs) Yeah, I guess. I don’t know. I didn’t study Spanish but now I’m thinking about going back to Spanish.

    So if your mom reads this, what would you tell her?

    Oh, I would just tell her whatever. It’s Italian and it’s more than you know. (Laughs)
