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.
She also shared drawings which she "interpreted from graphs in a confusing seminar presentation."
People were curious if Kearns did well on these quizzes.
Spoiler alert: she did!
People soon responded by sharing their own artwork... with their own professors' reactions included.
Look at this cat!
Whatever happened to Robot Jones? (The professor finished the doodle, apparently.)
This professor was kind enough to give a student extra points on their exam for their creativity.
This student did, too!
This student says her professor praised her artwork in person.
Look, a dinosaur!
Smiles all around!
"Am I this boring??" remarked one professor in response to the multiple doodles on one student's exam.
Another sea creature!
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!
