16 Thoughts We All Had During The Last Episodes of 'The Office'

Dunder Mifflin has everything from great art to relationship goals to the occasional stripper.

16 Thoughts We All Had During The Last Episodes of 'The Office'
Huffington Post

We all have a special place in our hearts for the employees of Dunder Mifflin, and the last episodes were an emotional rollercoaster for all of us. Here are 16 thoughts we all shared along the final ride with our friends from Scranton.

1. Why wasn’t there more dancing in the office?

When Darryl left, the dance party was everything we didn’t know we needed. With all the emotional scenes, it was a nice change of pace. We were able to temporarily stop crying in order to laugh at the office members.

2. Nellie is still the Umbridge of Dunder Mifflin.

Maybe this one is just me. In Harry Potter, Dolores Umbridge was the one character you just couldn’t like no matter what. She was horrible, and she did everything in favor of herself. I felt Nellie was the same way.

3. How could our hearts not absolutely melt after the video Jim had made for Pam?

“Not enough for me? You are everything.” If you don’t love these two, I’m sorry, but we can’t be friends. Their relationship is so real in that we were able to see the ups, the downs, and everything in-between. They never gave up on each other, and this video was just the cherry on top of their relationship. In that moment, we wondered how we were supposed to go on in life not knowing how the rest of their lives together turned out.

4. We couldn’t believe it when Dwight went to Jim over his proposal dilemma.

While Pam was watching the video, Jim’s speech to Dwight definitely made us start crying if we weren’t already.

5. We were beyond excited when Dwight chose Angela.

Total relief and happiness flooded our hearts when Dwight realized it was Angela he truly loved. Though the pair had an interesting relationship over the years, it was clear they belonged together.

6. We felt for Angela when it came to Meredith’s “stripper son.”

No explanation needed. Everything about this was wrong and uncomfortable for everyone involved; except for apparently Meredith.

7. What is going on with Kevin?

It makes sense why Dwight fired him, but why exactly did Kevin buy a bar?

8. There are so many unanswered questions about Erin’s parents.

Have they been together all this time? Did they ever try to look for her before the documentary aired? How did they know for sure it was her based on that? Are they from Scranton, or do they live further away? What happens now?

9. Michael!

Who wasn’t excited about our favorite manager’s return? As Jim said, best prank ever. Where were Holly and the kids though?

10. Can anyone explain Ryan and Kelly?

“I’ve finally mastered commitment.” Oh, Ryan. Absolutely nothing about Ryan and Kelly’s relationship makes sense. How do we know Drake was even Ryan’s child? Also, did anybody question Nellie taking Drake?

11. How did Pam keep Jim from finding out about the house?

Major props to Pam for managing to keep that a secret. In all seriousness, though, how?

12. When Jim and Pam decided to move to Austin, we couldn’t help but feel over the moon for them.

When Pam answered the office phone at the end and said that Jim Halpert no longer worked there, it gave us so many feels. It brought us back to where it all started, yet it was the end of an era. We were so excited for Jim to go follow his dream, but what now? Where will Athleap take him? What will Pam’s next adventure be? What will the kids think?

13. Go Pam!

The warehouse mural is one of the best pieces of art we will ever see. Not only did it look fantastic, it told a story. Most importantly, it told their story. We were so incredibly proud of Pam, but we were also really disappointed when all the PBS executives jumped in on the photo opportunity.

14. Seriously, Dwight?

This sums up our initial reactions when Dwight fired Jim and Pam before he went on to explain why.

15. When talking to Darryl after watching the Cornell speech, did anyone else notice when Andy accidentally called him “Dad”?

I need to know if this was scripted or a mistake. On one hand, it’s super confusing. On the other hand, it totally makes sense. His coworkers are so proud of him where his dad never seemed to be.

16. WHY?

The last 5 minutes of the finale were the most beautifully written minutes in TV history. With that scene in mind, let’s gather around and sob uncontrollably over ice cream as we ponder what to do with our lives now.

If you didn’t feel everything that was said in the final minutes of the show deep within your soul, did you even watch The Office?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
