16 Times Nick Summed Up My "Adult" Life

Why is Nick so realtable?

16 Times Nick Summed Up My "Adult" Life
WordPress.com

Whoever hasn't seen "New Girl" by now is dead to me. Not really, just kidding, but seriously, this is such a good show. It's like the "Friends" of our generation. I couldn't even begin to pick a favorite (shh, don't tell it's Winston all the way) because every character is so perfect. But there is only on that I identify with on a deeper level: Nick Miller. I feel that, as I have grown while watching the show, so has he. Remember when he was a constantly drunk, part-time bartender who dropped out of law school with only three semesters left? Now he's, Nick Miller, author of "The Pepperwood Chronicles" and has a bank account and is half owner of the bar. Nick has slowly, but surely, transformed into a more responsible adult. Sure, he had his rough patches, but who hasn't? And of course because he is the grumpiest and least responsible one of the other three in the loft, I identify with him completely. So here are 15 times I identified with Nick, and maybe the rest of you Nick Millers out there will be able to identify too.

1. As I age, I'm finally getting closer to the grandma that I know is living inside of me

I feel like people laugh too hard when I say I'm a Grandma, but they need to know I'm serious and proud of this fact.

2. I'm pretty sure I actually did this...

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F636253852955306493-1732471649_636065534480524927197578145_Nick%2520Miller%2520Reading.jpg&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=905&h=bc8959e0b8c1a33d05f2d2bbe6a75f10bccf28844d129d907a825006112f9c2a&size=980x&c=334529990 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F636253852955306493-1732471649_636065534480524927197578145_Nick%252520Miller%252520Reading.jpg%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D905%26h%3Dbc8959e0b8c1a33d05f2d2bbe6a75f10bccf28844d129d907a825006112f9c2a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D334529990%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

Isn't this how reading actually works? Sometimes I'll use a word and have no idea what it means or how I know it but I know I used it correctly.

3. I have no social graces, least of all at fancy restaurants

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F6362538538086891041098961266_anigif_enhanced-buzz-15691-1375733855-2.gif%3Fw%3D500%26h%3D268&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=902&h=0539f3177ff73a1016d89f76a4f778feb717ba6231325900696758119023477b&size=980x&c=715191421 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F6362538538086891041098961266_anigif_enhanced-buzz-15691-1375733855-2.gif%253Fw%253D500%2526h%253D268%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D902%26h%3D0539f3177ff73a1016d89f76a4f778feb717ba6231325900696758119023477b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D715191421%22%7D" expand=1]

Social etiquette does not apply when there is food nearby.

4. Ha, exercise!

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F636253855322619405-341500727_5d5b21da120e187b69a29a03852dd0d5.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=171&h=0316cc35e6f0577aa0af5e91ca7bdd95d7fb9590230d38874bbeaa50cd654227&size=980x&c=1082467822 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F636253855322619405-341500727_5d5b21da120e187b69a29a03852dd0d5.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D171%26h%3D0316cc35e6f0577aa0af5e91ca7bdd95d7fb9590230d38874bbeaa50cd654227%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1082467822%22%7D" expand=1]

Honestly, my idea of being healthy really is trying to eat less doughnuts. And maybe taking the stairs instead of the elevator. But then remembering how horrible it was and taking the elevator on the way down.

5. It is perfectly fine!

Why does only Nick understand?

6. Nick's logic agrees with me...

7. People really are the worst...

8. Who can actually afford this?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F636253870663354397931304874_images%3Fq%3Dtbn%3AANd9GcQ4hNok9-Sb2wl_3pb8HjI8CNzyV9lG2MyPlKLkPFL4nVsVkONQXA&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=938&h=b74852eabe98c0ef8787da9844e176e27ba1504f05e7a7a8c1041a44e45f89b7&size=980x&c=2272853428 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F636253870663354397931304874_images%253Fq%253Dtbn%253AANd9GcQ4hNok9-Sb2wl_3pb8HjI8CNzyV9lG2MyPlKLkPFL4nVsVkONQXA%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D938%26h%3Db74852eabe98c0ef8787da9844e176e27ba1504f05e7a7a8c1041a44e45f89b7%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2272853428%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

Honestly, it's a treat to fill my tank ALL the way up

9. Me too, Nick, me too

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F6362538711795004722008775560_images%3Fq%3Dtbn%3AANd9GcR0ZfsFJEw328JmMUpQpBF3gswYMIlzIrKJwZj7hlXa5OMBSPZkww&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=577&h=27462e8552172c53adc97f560c6e50e51b756ddc5361153349372e888b978ecb&size=980x&c=2563707136 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F6362538711795004722008775560_images%253Fq%253Dtbn%253AANd9GcR0ZfsFJEw328JmMUpQpBF3gswYMIlzIrKJwZj7hlXa5OMBSPZkww%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D577%26h%3D27462e8552172c53adc97f560c6e50e51b756ddc5361153349372e888b978ecb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2563707136%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

Self-sabotage is really all I know anymore...

10. It's the truth though, isn't it?

This was definitely me before I realized by negativity was making turning me into a lemon and I decided to try a little more Jess.

11. I will die as a stubborn little Nick donkey

I have always been stubborn, and you can't say otherwise!

12. Why can I never learn?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F636253872384018462-1814820901_images%3Fq%3Dtbn%3AANd9GcSTcN3fxQ50AFvpbohA4jnposXltOvv9KlcUjs2s1ft7rR5UalJQQ&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=61&h=5ddb462acabe4b4aba0ecceb25a843c8e9de07bf32b1393f56c68f2a923e192d&size=980x&c=3492092487 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F636253872384018462-1814820901_images%253Fq%253Dtbn%253AANd9GcSTcN3fxQ50AFvpbohA4jnposXltOvv9KlcUjs2s1ft7rR5UalJQQ%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D61%26h%3D5ddb462acabe4b4aba0ecceb25a843c8e9de07bf32b1393f56c68f2a923e192d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3492092487%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

For example, I put my drink on the edge of my desk, it gets knocked over and my day is ruined along with my carpet. Do I regret it? Yes. Will I do it again? Most likely...

13. Honestly, how I am I still alive now?

I don't exercise, or eat well, seriously, how I am I alive? I also fall a lot because I have no sense of gravity, so really, how am I alive? Forget successful adult, I'm not a successful human being.

14. Why do people always assume I'm angry?

This is my face, I don't control it, this is how it is!

15. Everything I touch- ruined

I get it Nick, I get it...

16. I had to include this though, because his turtle face is my spirit animal...

If you want to see more Nick (who doesn't), you can catch New Girl on Netflix and new episodes on Fox, Tuesdays at 7!

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

4433
Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn

3404
www.semipartisansam.com

College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.

Lifehack

Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.
