Supplemental Post #2: How to succeed during midterm season as told by Marilyn Monroe in "The Seven Year Itch" (1955)

**Disclaimer: I may have procrastinated a lot when making this. Oops.**

Midterm season is finally here which means that it is time to catch up on all of the material that you put off for the past eight weeks. 

Before you start freaking out, it is best to prepare for the coming weeks or days ahead. 

Always make sure that you are fully equipped with all of the snacks...

and all of the coffee...

that you will need in order to get those "straight A's" that your mother so lovingly encourages you to achieve at the end of every phone call home. But be forewarned, coffee and snacks do not equal straight A's. Studying does.

Remember that procrastinacks are the key to your success.

However, if studying and school aren't for you, fear not, young scholar — there are plenty of other professions to fall back on. For example, you could be a plumber.

Yes, Marilyn. Plumbers can be blonde too.  

If the porcelain life does not suit you, feel free to blame your defiance on the social constructs that mandate students to work towards a test.

But remember, tests do not define you. C's get degrees, D stands for diploma but an F probably means that you should drink your failures away and call it a day.
