I have been watching way too much of The Office lately. Like, hours and hours. It's a comforting show, especially when you are feeling insanely stressed. And there is one thing I've noticed: Dwight Schrute is insanely relatable. At least, to my coffee-jacked, frazzle-brained self. So, in the spirit of finals, here are 10 times Dwight's quotes have made me think,"Me too, man."

1. “How would I describe myself? Three words: hard working, alpha male, jackhammer, merciless, insatiable.”

As someone who recently had a job interview, I think I speak for everyone when I say I wish I could say this about myself.

2. “The principle is sound. To avoid illness, expose yourself to germs, enabling your immune system to develop antibodies. I don’t know why everyone doesn’t do this… Maybe they have something against living forever.”

If you have ever lived in a college dorm, you know that this may not be true. But it's a comforting thought when your entire floor has the flu and you hope you aren't next.

3. “I am ready to face any challenge that might be foolish enough to face me.”

The only thought you have when the line for coffee at the library goes out the door.

5. “There are 3 things you never turn your back on; bears, men you have wronged, and a dominant male turkey during mating season.”

As someone whose college campus is rife with male turkeys, this is actually strangely relevant.

6.“Before I do anything I ask myself, ‘Would an idiot do that?’ and if the answer is yes, I do not do that thing.”

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world.

I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
