13 Time The Office Described Thoughts You Have When Someone Asks You About Your Career Goals

13 Time The Office Described Thoughts You Have When Someone Asks You About Your Career Goals

It's okay to not have a plan yet, but these Office moments are oh, so relatable.

This is probably every college student's least favorite question, but don't be afraid to say you don't know! Not having every detail of your life figured out yet is fine, and you have plenty of time to get it together. But for now, let's look at some relatable moments from The Office that really sum up the feels on this issue.

1. I refuse to grow up.

Complete denial. I will never be an adult with a job.

2. You mean college eventually ends?

College is a lot of work, but at least I make my own schedule and can sleep until 2 p.m. on the weekends if I want.

3. Ask me again when I'm done with these 5 papers, 8 assignments, and 3 exams if I still want a job some day.

You mean I have to work more after college? Can I just retire now?

4. Actually, I'm just going to be a stripper.

I've decided it'd just be easier this way. Time to let the world see my mad dance skills.

5. What random job will I answer with today because I still have no idea what I want to do with my life...

I'm interested in 100 different things, and I haven't narrowed it down to one yet, so I'll just pick the first one that pops into my head and pretend like a have a plan.

6. Is watching Netflix an acceptable career?

This is something I enjoy and am good at, and you're supposed to love your job right? Perfect!

7. Whatever pays the most that I can do from the comfort of my bed.

Getting out of bed is such a drag. It's just so warm and comfy here.

8. I've had my whole life to find the answer to this question and I still don't know!

I have existential crises once a week on this topic, and I still don't have an answer.

9. Can I just be a unicorn?

Beautiful, can fly, glitter, everyone would love me, sounds good.

10. Is giving bad advice a career choice?

Convincing your friend to go out the night before their big exam was probably a bad idea.

11. Is making bad decisions a career choice?

We're all just trying to do our best here. Some are doing better than others.

12. I am but a wee college student, I am not adulty enough to answer this.

I just barely started this adulting thing, please be patient with me.

13. I don't know, just gonna wing it.

Sometimes you've got to fail before you fly.

We all know how panic inducing it can be when someone asks us what our career goals are, but always remember you have a lot of time to figure this out. Some 40-year-olds still don't know "what they want to be when they grow up"! If you try one thing and don't like it, pick something else! And never feel like you're stuck. The possibilities are endless, so just find something you think you'll love and give it your best shot!

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks


Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History


Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year

Gear Up


This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like NBA.com, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)


If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.
