When you're a student, homework is an unavoidable fact of life. If you’re faced with something as ludicrous as homework for 4-year-olds, feel not an ounce of shame if you decide to take matters into your own hands in order to speed up the process. If you can get through without dropping any F bombs, you deserve some sort of major award.
