The first day of sophomore year is very like the first day of freshman year, except that Gene knows how much monotony awaits him. Rules, boring routine, subjects he couldn't care less about, and classmates who're (almost all) no fun to talk with. But there was no way of getting out of it, so he's here.
Gene sneaks a peek at the student handbook and chuckles just a bit. At least this isn't quite so monotonous - something must've been off with the printer.
He flips to the first page and checks; nope, the text is all nicely aligned there. Well, might as well disrupt that. At the end of the statement of values, he scribbles, "... and boredom to everyone."
