when you’re younger, being smart and being able to pass classes easily without studying is not a good thing
because then when you hit a point where you do have to study for classes, you have no idea how to study
And then you end up sitting staring at your book for 2 hours thinking to yourself: Maybe if I sleep on it some sort of book osmosis will occur and I’ll absorb the information from my book into my mind
And then you cry.
This is actually 100% valid. I never had to study when I was really young, and now that I’m old, my ability to find pertinent information in a sea of letters and numbers and retain it is like nearly inpossible.
