Intellectual Snobbery

Jeff Klein

You know what really gets on my nerves? The intellectual snobs at Middlebury. Those who feel the need to continually tell people about the 75-page thesis they are currently writing. Those who will bust out a comment like, “I completed 15 pages of my paper earlier, but now I’m being totally unproductive. I have to get back to work.” Those who look down upon people that choose to go out and have a good time on Friday and Saturday nights (and Wednesdays, if you go to Wednesday Night Beirut). Hey, relax. There’s nothing wrong with chilling out and having some fun every once in a while. Of course, work is important; we wouldn’t be at Middlebury if we didn’t feel that way. But there’s more to life than work, and if you don’t feel that way, you’re missing out.
