What do you do with the back of your quiz once you've finished and you're just sitting and waiting for the period to end? Why, you doodle, of course.
College student Kaitlyn Kearns got into the habit of doodling on the backs of her quizzes before handing them in to her professor. Her professor is clearly a fan of her creativity, because there is always a comment on her artistic creations.
My professor always comments on my back-of-quiz doodles and it’s very pure https://t.co/HPOsM6BYtI— Kaitlyn Kearns (@Kaitlyn Kearns)1553028797.0

This professor was kind enough to give a student extra points on their exam for their creativity.
This student did, too!

Kearns says she's taken a break from doodling on her quizzes as the class has gotten more intensive, but hey, at least she's given plenty of her fellow college students––as well as the rest of us––a reason to smile. Maybe the rest of us need to up our doodling game!
