I Swear to God If I Have to Click Two Buttons to Access my.harvard I Will Fucking Leave

Do you think I have time for this? I have *several* ten-page readings to do for my Gen Ed before section next week.

As long as I am a student here at Harvard College, I expect to have to fulfill certain demands of the bureaucracy in charge. Usually, I accept their arbitrary decisions gladly, because it means that I can continue to be a member of this wonderful community. However there is a point at which it is simply too much to bear, and I believe we have well surpassed that point.
 
If two-step verification ever really becomes required for Harvard PIN-protected resources, I will fucking leave.
 
I’m out. Gone. This is the hill that I fight and die on. Never coming back. Where are the transfer papers? Do you understand how many hours you are shedding off my existence by making me do this? Do you, Harvard? I have to click one extra button - on my PHONE - every month.
 
Let’s do some quick math. If I go to Harvard for four years, and each button click takes 30 seconds, this works out to two years spent just clicking this button on my phone. If we also take into account how much time it takes to get back into the mindset I was in before I was distracted by this process, we’re talking decades of my life lost to this “security” feature. Oh don't worry I'm not busy trying to discover the cure for cancer or anything.
 
Not.
 
What Harvard doesn’t realize is that I’m not just a student. I’m also a person, with my own personal projects, and I use my free time in ways that are valuable to me and my community. I play music in the orchestra. I dance for multiple on-campus groups, and one off-campus group. I often explore the depths of oceans in search of Amelia Earheart’s lost plane. And you can't expect me to divert temporal resources away from these precious pastimes.
 
Alright, great. Now that we've settled that, let me get back to this game of Hearthstone.
