- I've had to do a lot of group projects. They take time to coordinate. I don't have time.
- I had four classes instead of three. But then I dropped one, so it should be easier, right?
- Statistically speaking, there's only a 60% chance that I actually understand statistics class (with a five percentage point margin of error)

- Looking for summer internships is time-consuming and it takes a lot of effort and thought to write the perfect cover letter.
- Too much California sunshine makes me lazy.
