"Hey girl, what'cha doin'? Hey girl, where 'ya goin'?"

As someone who has spent the weekend binge-watching New Girl, I can definitely say that I had forgotten how great it is since the last time I watched it. The characters in the loft are all so unique and three-dimensional: qualities many sitcoms overlook in order to sell typical character archetypes. New Girl's witty, diverse cast has had some of the most underrated, golden lines that will make anyone feel better about the life they're living--especially if you fell like this whole "adulting" thing is too hard sometimes.

1."I just panic ordered $200 worth of Chinese food." -Nick Miller


We all known the feeling. You get your direct deposit in your bank account and then suddenly you have no money, no dignity, and you're sitting in a pile of takeout boxes at 2 a.m. It happens to the best of us. Luckily we have Nick to relate to.

2. "Okay, hey! I got something to say to you, man. I brake for birds. I rock a lot of polka dots. I have touched glitter in the last 24 hours. I spend my entire day talking to children, and I find it fundamentally strange that you're not a dessert person. It's just weird and it freaks me out, and I'm sorry I don't talk like Murphy Brown, and I hate your pantsuit. I wish it had ribbons on it, or just something to make it slightly cuter, and that doesn't mean I'm not smart and tough and strong!" -- Jess Day

This is one of my favorite quotes, though it's a long one. Jess perfectly captures the idea that femininity does not equal lesser or weaker than more masculine things. She is true to herself and doesn't pretend to be someone she isn't.

3. "If I were off my rocker, would I take a weekly selfie with my cat?" -Winston Bishop

Winston is the character on New Girl that I relate to the most: not really sure where he's going in life for the first few seasons, loves singing showtunes in the car, and his best friend is his cat, Ferguson. Loving your pet more than other people isn't that weird.

4. "The economy stinks, bees are dying, and movies are pretty much all sequels now!" --Schmidt

Schmidt summed up everything wrong with the world in a nutshell, here. This shows the perfect balance between global issues and "first-world problems" to make the burden of the world's issues seem a little lighter on your shoulders.

5. "I know Word, and I can open a document, Save. Save As. Print. Print Preview!" - Winston Bishop

Here, Winston perfectly captures the 20-something millenial trying to add anything they possibly can to their resume, or saying anything they can to get a job. The struggle is real.

6. "Just because I don't have a husband, or a baby, or a house doesn't mean I'm not living right!" -Jess Day

There's no right way to live life, as long as you're living the life you want. Not everyone has the same timeline, so not everyone will get married, have kids, or buy houses as young as they used to--or at all, especially in this economy. Jess reminds viewers that sometimes all you need are great friends to share your life with.

7. "I just wanted to listen to Taylor Swift alone." -Jess Day

We all have those days. Life is beating you down, boys suck, and angst-filled Taylor Swift breakup songs are the only thing that will get you through the day.

8. "Where are you, Schmidt? This place is fancy and I don't know which fork to kill myself with." -Nick Miller

This is the feeling you get when you go out to eat to a place that actually doesn't have a drive-thru, for once. I feel you, Nick.

9. "I mean, I'm not doing squats or anything. I'm trying to eat less doughnuts." -Nick Miller

Sometimes you have to take baby-steps to getting healthier and that's okay. You might not be running marathons and eating organic salads, but at least you aren't gorging yourself on doughnuts and sweets as often. Nick understands the struggle of having a decent diet that isn't built upon the aisles of a gas station instead of a farmer's market.

10. "You were denied a cell phone because you have the credit score of a homeless ghost!"-Winston

Money is a hard thing to handle when you're fumbling around in the adult world for the first time. No one understand this better than Nick Miller, who is known to distrust banks and keep all of his money in a box in his closet.

11. "You treat an outside wound with rubbing alcohol, you treat an inside wound with drinking alcohol. Science." -Nick Miller

As a bartender, functioning alcoholic, and human being, Nick Miller gets it. Sometimes you just need a beer to make you feel a little better about life, and that's okay (to an extent.)

The Short And Sweet LSU Freshman Year Bucket List You Can Actually Complete In 12 Months

A list to help freshman make the most of their first year in college

233
views

Freshman year is one of the most bittersweet times in a young person's life. Most people are away from home and old friends for the first time and are forced to adapt. I created a list of 10 things that LSU freshman need to experience because I believe it helps make that first year of college more enjoyable and it even helps a person step out of their comfort zone. Here is the ultimate LSU bucket-list for incoming freshmen!

1. Saturday night football in Death Valley

This is definitely one of the most memorable experiences during my first semester. If you have never been to a game in Tiger Stadium, I promise you are going to have chills when the band and football team walk out on the field. An LSU win just makes the night even better.

2. Tailgating

YouTube

Before the football games is the massive pregame party around campus. Students and adults everywhere are eating, drinking, and socializing before the football game. Without a doubt, tailgating is a big part of the gameday experience at LSU.

3. Tigerland

Instagram

An area of bars just outside campus is the prime spot for students to hang out on the weekends and even weeknights. Even if you're not into bars, everyone should go to Tigerland at least once. It's a good time to just hang out with friends and maybe even meet some new people.

4. 2:00 A.M. Trips to Cane's

Instagram

Cane's really does taste better late at night and the experience is just really unique. There's nothing that really screams college like sitting at a fast food chicken restaurant at two in the morning eating with your friends. It's just a good time.

5. Louie's Cafe

This is another spot for some late night food or even just a place to get lunch. The restaurant is open 24 hours, so it's always a go to. If you're ever there late at night, the chocolate chip pancakes are pretty amazing.

6. Chocolate chip cookies at The 5

Cookies from a dining hall? You're probably thinking they can't be that great. Well, you're wrong. Chocolate chip cookies from The five are the real deal and I have heard plenty of people tell me the same thing. One time when I was sick I went to The five just so I could get a plate of cookies, so there's that.

7. Sunday morning hangovers

Giphy

This one's a little humorous, but at the same time expected. Honestly, I think hangovers just teach people to be a better person in the future, whether it be that a person starts drinking less or they drink more and stock up on Pedialyte. Anyway, it's just another part of the college experience.

8. Walking to class soaked

LSU

The second semester of my freshman year I had to walk across campus in probably some of the hardest rain I think I have ever seen. By the time I made it to my dorm, everything on my body was completely soaked in water. After that day I purchased a rain jacket and some shoes that worked better in water. It's a great learning experience.

9. CC's Coffee

For those of you in Louisiana who always have access to a CC's, you're lucky. I used to love Starbucks, but now CC's is my favorite coffee. If you have never had CC's, definitely check it out as soon as possible, it's amazing.

10. Insomnia Cookies

This is another late night snack spot that serves some of the best cookies around. My favorite is the chocolate chip cookies with some chocolate milk on the side, it's life changing.
