2) Surround yourself with books
Don’t worry, you don’t actually have to read them. Simply stand by bookshelves for extended periods of time. If you want to look really thoughtful, make sure to look meaningfully into the distance. Soon enough, people will think that you’re the kind of person who wants to continue their education. While you definitely don’t, it doesn’t hurt for people to think that you love yourself some good book learnin’.
