When I first came to Stanford, I thought I had it all figured out. My life was governed by a set of expectations and beliefs that I had built up slowly over time, in much the same way that we rationalize the universe through scientific laws that have stood the test of time. As a senior looking back on my little freshman self, I am amazed at how many of these conceptions – having planted themselves upon the doormat of Stanford – were promptly blown off their feet. Here I present to you the ten most spectacularly rejected ones.
As I’m writing this, it’s the end of week five. There are ten weeks in our quarters, plus finals week, so that means that we’re halfway through, and it’s midterm season.
