17 Posts That Will Change The Way You Think About Everything You’ve Learned In School

If you are a student, chances are good that, right now, you are experiencing something of an academic overload. Hardly anyone could blame you for this, of course–no matter how much you may enjoy school, the act of actually being there tends to take a toll on a person. Especially towards the end of the year, when you’ve spent about nine months in the same seven (or so) classes, learning what can feel like all of the same information over and over again. It’s enough, probably, to make anyone want to up and quit school altogether.

Unfortunately, you can’t just, like, quit school right before finals. That would be bad form! What you can do, however, is get a fresh perspective–courtesy, as all things fresh perspective-related are, of Tumblr–on the things you’ve been learning this year. So, if you’re in need of an academic palate cleanser, check out these posts that will totally change the way you think about the things you’ve learned in school:
