Yes, it's that time of year again. Time to put on those fake smiles, mingle uncomfortably with professors and colleagues at the parties where if it weren't for the keg, all anyone would talk about is grad school. Remember to talk to the newbies who think that grad school will be so wonderful and want to know everything about the program. The only thing that keeps you from running full tilt through the window (you're on the 8th floor, remember!) is the fact that Prof. Lejardin is gonna give another one o' those long, windy, partially-incoherent-but-always-hilarious speeches of his. Thank God for him.
Sample sentence: I'm oriented just fine, thank you.
