Something Fresh

You know you’re an engineering student when…

Well I’ve read many versions of this article, but this one which I found on an orkut community seemed most comprehensive. And some of the points always give me a good laugh, so here!

You know you are a budding engineer when:

1. You’re proud to be in engineering but completely hate it.

2. You have a knack for math and physics but when in class you feel like its all over your head.

3. You hate chemistry and are pathetic at it.

4. You are awful at spelling and grammar or anything english related.

5. After about a month of college a C in half your classes dont seem that bad anymore.

6. You recognize all 4 girls in engineering.

7. Instead of studying you spend your week before finals doing something stupid like writing this.(This was a pending post since comprees)

8. You laugh when other students complain about taking 30 credits in a year.

9. You believe that your best friend is the FX 991MS.

10. It’s 2am and your computer has:-
* 15 firefox tabs open 4 of which or wikipedia looking up some term you should know, others include all your orkut, facebook accounts, some blogs and such junk
* Text editor open with some stupidly long lab
* at least 10 different adobe windows open with your lecture slides/ assignments
* amaroK/winamp open with metal playing
* Gaim/Trillian running with 4 chat windows, the four being the 4 girls in engineering.
* Download manager running with the latest movie/episode of 24/heroes/scrubs/PB.

11. You wish that your college would start giving out Arts degrees as well. (Or is it just me?)

12. You analyze everything you see without thinking about it.

13. You have exams that are 3 hours to do 2 questions, and still run out of time.

14. You know the whole Greek alphabet.

15. You have fun talking about maths.

16. Your average sleeping time per day is 3-5 hrs.

17. You understand jokes like “I would like to be your integral so I can be the area under your curves” and find them hilarious.

18. You forget everything you learn as soon as you get home.

19. You do every assignment at the last possible moment.

20. You can fill up a 200 pages foolscap notebook in 5 days or less.

21. Your computer stays switched on for 4 days continuous, at an average.

22. You have finally learned that you’re not actually smart, high school kids were just dumb.

23. Though you will never admit it, you know we’re all losers.

24. You would rather do mutivariable calculus than have to write a paper or memorize anything.

25. You might not know shit about computer but can write a 5 page C++ code with ease.

26. No matter how confused you are you’ll convince yourself a textbook isnt worth buying.

27. Only reason you’re passing is because of those engineering friends that are way smarter than you, or whatever.

28. You depend on a curve to get a decent grade.

29. You are the only person that finds those stupid engineering shirts hilarious.

30. You hate engineering.

  2. Haha, I needed to read this again! Always brings a smile!

    It’s a love-hate relationship with engineering though. I’m sure the time’ll come when you love it again :)

  3. Oh, how did the final go?


    April 22, 2010 at 1:01 am

  4. True. Not anytime soon though. I can’t wait to graduate.
    It was all thinking based more to do with design, so hard to judge how it went, because the prof is very picky, and he wants a proper justification for every requirement, modification you make on a design. I have two finals today = doomed.

  5. Haha, TWO finals in a day? Are you one of those who takes only like a million credits every semester? :D I have a day or two’s break between every final to reignite myself!

  6. No. We have a certain set of courses, and I have to take 6 courses every semester. I had a final on Wed, and two on Thurs within 24 hours time frame. A lot of people were complaining about it. It was ridiculous, and I have learned two finals in a day is an EPIC DISASTER. Luckily I have some time off for the next two, which makes things less stressful.

  7. Haha! You should’ve tried to reschedule them! Good luck for the remaining ones :)
