    Yipeah, endlich bin ich Student und muss die Schulbank nicht mehr drücken! Das Beste am Studentenleben ist dass man endlich von zu Hause auszieht und seine eigene Bude hat.

Auch in den letzten Jahren bin ich oft nur durchgekommen, weil ich von meinen Banknachbarn abgekupfert und abgeschrieben und auch abgespickt habe. Meistens hatte ich in Klausuren einen Spickzettel dabei und habe geschummelt wo es nur so ging!
