Student 1: I'm going to write a bestseller by the time I graduate.
Student 2: Me, too! I'm totally going to be a bestselling author!

  4. Flash forward to graduation:
    Student 1: "I'm going to finish my book after graduation!"
    Student 2: "Me too!"

    sorry, just me being cynical too. Probably they'll both be on the Amazon top 100 and we'll be eating our words, ha ha.
