• [MANAGING YOUR TIME...] A pie graph shows various uses of one's time. "Class" and "Working" each take up about a fourth of the pie. "Coursework" takes up a full third, and "Job searching" about a fifth. A student with a bulging backpack sweats and struggles in vain to hold a heavy "Sleep" in the pie, while various wedges, "Friends & Family", "Hobbies & Interests", "Physical Fitness", and "Clubs and Activities", hover nearby, looking concerned that there is no room for them in the pie. A balding professor violently tries to force a large "More Coursework" wedge into the already-full pie, exclaiming, "I just want my fair share!"

    My senior year semesters were stressful ones, in no small part thanks to the many demands for my time. Sometimes drawing a cartoon is just the kind of passive-aggressive therapy one needs. ("I just want my fair share" is an actual quote from one of my professors at the time, when complained to about the workload.)
