You all know that feeling you get when it’s late at night and you still have a ton of homework to do, knowing that it could have been averted if you had watched one less episode of that Netflix show you’ve been binging for the past week.

Walking down the halls of Mill Valley, there are very few phrases someone could say that would be understood by the mass majority of students.
