Like most legitimate institutions of higher learning, my beloved DeVry University doesn’t have Fall Break. Unlike most legitimate institutions of higher learning, that’s because, at DeVry, every day is a break. That’s how TFTC we are. You know that feeling of relaxation and elation you get when you finish your last day of class before heading home for a break? I get that feeling during class, because I’m already home. On any given school day, you’ll find me with my online class open in one tab, the Vineyard Vines homepage open in another, eating Cheetos and touching myself using the two-hand butter churn grip with the vigor and determination of an Amish boy who just came back from Rumspringa and decided that, despite the beauty and intricacies of 21st century technology, the Amish life is the one for him.
Because every day is a break, I’ve got to act way frat even when I’m on an actual, official break. There’s no taking a break from taking a break for me. It’s a lot of pressure, really. DeVry gives its students time off for Thanksgiving, so while you’re at home eating Thanksgiving dinner and trying to determine whether or not your marginally attractive cousin is hitting on you when she asks you to pass the cornbread muffins (pro tip: she is), I’m still on the clock.
Want to be like me this Thanksgiving Break? Here are 19 Total Frat Thanksgiving Moves you can try out.
