10 Michael Scott Quotes To Inspire Your School Year

Going back to school is a time to start fresh and to decide what you will get out of your year. There is so many opportunities and endless possibilities that sometimes it may seem overwhelming. Here are some wise words from a show that can relate to so many of life's moments to help guide you as you begin this new phase.

10. "Sometimes I'll start a sentence and I don't even know where it's going I just hope to find it along the way" -Michael Scott

In his weird way, Michael tells us that it's ok to not have it all figured out. In college it's hard to know everything that's going to happen and things don't always go as planned. Figuring out as you go is part of the fun and exciting part of what may become a lifelong memory.

9. "It's never too early for ice cream" -Michael Scott

Life is too short not to enjoy the little things in life. Whether it be eating ice cream or binge-watching a tv-show on netflix or staying out a little later than normal, live your heart out because it's your year.

8. "Wikipedia is the best thing ever" -Michael Scott

Obviously wikipedia is "not a reliable resource" for academic papers, but Michael does have a point. When you have no idea where to start and don't feel like weeding through all those data bases, start with wikipedia as a launch point for your research.

7. "It's a pimple" -Michael Scott

It's ok to not look your best everyday. You can still be amazing even if you are wearing the sweatpants and old t-shirt you've worn for the past few days at the library. After all, we all have those days--life is complicated ;)

6. "In the end, life and business are about human connections" -Michael Scott

Computers may not actually be trying to take over (yet), but Michael is right. Choose to get up away from your screens and interact with the people around you instead of the ones online. You might just meet someone who changes your life.

5. "Occasionally, I'll hit somebody with my car" -Michael Scott

While you might not hit someone when pulling into the parking lot, you still might make a few mistakes along the way. Take everything in strides and remember to let the little things go (but if you actually hit someone with your car, you might want to feel badly about that).

4. "There's such a thing as good grief" -Michael Scott

School brings out a lot of different emotions. "Good grief," as Michael references it, reminds you of what matters most and how to keep everything in perspective.

3. "Sometimes you have to be the boss of dancing" -Michael Scott

Don't forget to enjoy your life and have fun. Michael always encourages his employees to live each moment to the fullest. At school, take advantage of the opportunities to be crazy and live on the edge, even if it means taking a break from the norm.

2. "Never ever ever give up" -Michael Scott

Life can be rough and it might seem like not worth trying to do things anymore, but Michael is right when he tells Jim not to give up on his dream. Keep going.

1. "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take"

Put yourself in the game because you can't succeed if you don't even try.

To everyone starting on the adventure of a new school year, take Michael Scott's advice to heart and have the best year ever.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
