"Right. See, I figured this out my third year or so. And I don't think this reasoning could really apply to everyone but this is what I thought."
Nikolas stood as he began speaking, having grown weary of sitting and feeling the need to move. Besides, he was explaining himself, might as well do it the right way. He paced a small trail down the aisle of desks. "There's an awful lot of things we can learn here, and no possible way we can learn all of them. Add to that the fact that only certain bits of the things we learn are going to apply to what we do when we graduate. Obviously some people have to take specific classes to be able to have the careers they want, but I for one don't have that problem. It might be lazy of me, but as my future is all but settled, I don't see much point in putting a lot of effort and stress into a full schedule of classes...and now I'm just rather bored of the whole thing."
Nikolas stopped speaking when he realized he had probably just made himself sound like a self-entitled prat. Which he wasn't, at least he didn't think so. Still, he had a point, right? What did he need with trivia like Divination and History of Magic when he'd known what he was going to do for over half of his life?
