Mostly As: the 2020 Gator football season
You’re a hard worker who knows the importance of earning your recognition. Despite a few rough spots, you always find a way to make steady progress. You understand that the journey is more important than the ending and that gaining experience will only help you in the future. If you just make sure to work on defending yourself and remember not to throw anyone’s shoes, you are sure to find success.
Mostly Bs: #SpamGate2020
In other words, this was the massive reply-all email chain that flooded the inboxes of hundreds of unfortunate students and faculty members. You’re able to make a name for yourself with your humor and drive. You’re ambitious and tend to go out of your way to do things that were never asked of you, but hey, at least you gave everyone a good laugh during those lonely quarantine months, right? Oh, and why are there two Garretts here?
Mostly Cs: Zoom classes
Your ideas might seem unconventional at first, but ultimately you manage to make them work. You’re an extrovert that has missed seeing your friends throughout quarantine (though you’re never opposed to staying home in your pajamas). Your attempts at productivity are often plagued with technical difficulties, funny chat messages, and distracting pets. Yet at the end of the day, what matters to you are the great experiences you got to share with your peers and the friends you made along the way.
Mostly Ds: the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium fire
You’re not quite sure where you started, but that’s not important. You shine bright, call lots of attention to yourself, and burn your own path. You also manage to resolve your problems quickly and efficiently.
