You have finally escaped the unparalleled hardships of your spring semester at the University of Florida. Summer has come and you are free for a whopping one week of break. After enjoying yourself for this criminally short period of time, you need to make sure to knock out Florida's money-grubbing summer term requirement. Before classes begin, you need to make some last-minute course selections.
[[Sign up for Advanced Exposition]]
[[Sign up for Technical Writing]]Upon showing up on your first day of class, things are looking pretty good. Sure, there may be bees slowly dying all around you, but the people in class seem nice and there aren't any intense assignments in the near future. Your first assignment is a throwback: you must cut and fold a piece of paper into a foldable booklet for a classwide meet and greet. Good luck with that.
[[Fail miserably in your attempt and accept that your inner crafty nine-year-old self died years ago.]]
[[Make a perfectly-crafted booklet.]]It's literally called "Technical Writing." Why would you ever choose that? You're either incredibly boring or you've made a terrible mistake. Technical Writing is utterly skullnumbing. I'll give you a chance to reconsider.
[[Sign up for Advanced Exposition]]
[[Continue taking Technical Writing]]Are you really sure about that? There are no quipus or Play-Doh assignments in Technical Writing. Sounds like a pretty poor choice if you ask me.
[[No.]]You are too boring to be saved. Specifically, you are more boring than a man named Todd eating a plain turkey sandwich on white bread during his lunch break at a small accounting firm at 11:30 AM on a Wednesday in Ocala. Enjoy six weeks of drafting hypothetical business e-mails, you absolute Todd. All the cool kids will be off making quipus and chatting in Advanced Exposition. Don't say I didn't warn you.That leaves you with the top notch alternative of Advanced Exposition. It's time for some #makeademics. Enjoy your semester.Be honest, you absolutely did a bad job. It's not a big deal, just own up to it and we can all move on.
[[No, I really did do a good job on it. The instructions are actually really simple it wasn't too bad.]]
[[Fail miserably in your attempt and accept that your inner crafty nine-year-old self died years ago.]] Sorry, but I can't continue developing a story for a liar like you. Try again once you can accept that you're as awful at crafts as the rest of us.Some people your age are already millionaires and here you are unable to cut three lines into a sheet of paper. It's okay though it looks like most people are also struggling with this. You take your crude imitation of a booklet and meet your classmates, who are as friendly as they initially seemed.
[[This class seems promising, I think I'll stick with it.]]
[[I don't know about all this "fun" and "friendliness" nonsense. I think I'll switch over to Technical Writing.]]Great choice. Technical Writing would have been less fun than listening to an audiobook version of the dictionary narrated by Ben Stein from cover to cover in one sitting. Instead, you get to make some quipus and read about some old cryptographers who are actually pretty interesting. Word on the street is that there are 3-D printers and Play-Doh coming up soon. Not too shabby for a Summer A course if you ask me. You'll go on to have some fun and become a better writer.As your omniscient narrator, I can assure you that Technical Writing will not be fun. You won't get to make quipus, play with Play-Doh, do any decoding activities, or discuss interesting readings. Are you truly confident in switching out to a class that's just incessant formal writing?
