10 Ways Jim Halpert Ruined Your Life

I speak on behalf of anyone who has watched "The Office" when I state that Jim Halpert is one of the funniest and most lovable characters in the history of the modern sitcom. When I watched "The Office" from start to finish (in the span of a week because, yes, the show is that amazing), I determined that no television character or person in real life can ever live up to Jim. Here are a few examples of how I came to that conclusion

1. When he gave Pam the most thoughtful gift ever for the office Secret Santa -- a teapot full of inside jokes and mementos.

They weren't even dating at the time; he was just casually in love with her.

2. When he included a card with the gift that read, "Because at Christmas time you tell people how you feel."

And then took it back because he feared rejection. Only later giving it to her in season nine when they hit a rough patch in their relationship in order to express his neverending love for her.

3. When he made this face after he learned that Pam was pregnant.

(as everyone watching cries with happiness)

4. When he and Pam had the definition of a perfect wedding.

Because who doesn't want to have an impromptu runaway to Niagara Falls with the love of your life?

5. When he basically had any moment with Pam.

We always knew they were destined to be together from the start.

6. When he willingly starred as the villain in Michael's Threat Level Midnight.

He did do a pretty damn good job of portraying such an antagonist.

7. Whenever he looked into the camera and never stopped being his dorky self.

As viewers know, this happened every episode on multiple occasions.

8. Whenever he pranked Dwight.

And nailed it. Every. Single. Time.

9. When he brought back Michael to Dwight's wedding in the series finale.

As if we weren't already emotional.

10. And finally, when he (and the rest of the world) teared up as he said goodbye to Michael in season seven.

If you weren't sad when watching this then you are most definitely lying.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I have been listening to Taylor Swift since her debut album. I remember getting her first album on CD when I was little. She hasn't always been my favorite, but this summer I rediscovered my love for her songs. I also met people who had listened to her newer stuff but hadn't listened to her original stuff, a tragedy I know.

I thought I would give my personal rankings of every Taylor Swift album, including my favorite song from the album. I know mine are different than several others, and that's OK.
