It seems like everyone and their mother is currently trying to nail down just what exactly to do post grad. As a junior actively applying for summer internships, I definitely feel the pressure. However, I've found that most of my friends are experiencing the same struggle. Throughout all the pressure though, I've found the best way to cope is through humor. Therefore, here's a nice satire of the summer internship search brought to you through a series of ridiculous gifs.

1. When you realize you need to update your resume.

Helllp.

2. When you try to think of internships to apply for.

I like people?

3. When you find an internship you really want to land and then realize how competitive it is.

I believe in me.

4. When the application asks for a cover letter.

"To whom it may concern," now that's classy.

5. When the application includes a short response to a question about yourself.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY.

6. When you start to get a little desperate during the 2-3 week period between when you submitted your application and when the company actually reaches out.

Gahhhh.

7. When you have an alert that someone viewed your LinkedIn profile, but they were a private user, so you're not sure if it was a recruiter from the internship you applied for or not.

Identify yourself!

8. When someone asks if you have any prospects for the summer.

Not now, please.

9. When someone else lands an internship, and you're super happy for them but also just got 100x more stressed.

Yay, but also WHO AM I?

10. When you inevitably get turned down from one of the 10 you applied for.

I'll be okay. I think.

And finally,

11. When you get an offer to interview.

THAT'S NOT A FLAT OUT NO!

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.

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.
