25 Times Jim Halpert Depicted The Life Of A College Student

22. Existing in a constant state of exhaustion.


1. The "do I really have to go to class?" face.

Basically the face I make every morning that I wake up exhausted (refer to #22).

2. That time you forgot about an assignment.

3. Or you get to class and remember you have a test.

4. When your professor decides that they're not going to give you homework (for once).

5. Listening to the lecture and still being confused.

6. Seeing your homework load pile up.

And knowing that you can't really do anything about it. It's literally the worst because all these various classes have their own set of work and they overlap so much.

7. Checking your grades periodically.

More like every single day.

8. Getting a test back that you thought you did well on.

9. Realizing that you have to drop a class.

10. When your friend says something funny to you in the middle of class.

It's not like you can just burst out laughing in the middle of lecture ... people will look at you, you know? It's hard to stifle laughter when things like this happen.

11. Finals week.

Simply put, finals week feels like, well, someone tackling you.

12. The face you make when you realize it's Monday.

13. Looking outside at the weather.

Your face just drops when there's crappy weather outside and you know you have to go to class. Reversely, when [insert weather that's enjoyable] is outside and your face lights up.

14. When the procrastination sets in.

15. Getting assigned a project that's worth a large portion of your grade.

16. Staying up all night to binge-watch Netflix.

Sometimes this also includes getting homework done while binge-waching your favorite series. Episodes upon episodes are played while hours waste away, mostly unintentional.

17. Getting annoyed by your roommates.

18. Getting done with classes on Fridays.

19. Waiting for friends when they take forever to get ready.

*gives some sarcastic response when they finally do show up*

20. What it feels like staying in on the weekends.

Dwight represents all of the people you know who are out while you're not. It's not all that bad staying in, but it's just not always the most exciting activity. Unfortunately though, homework and projects gotta get done.

21. Having to walk across campus.

I know this doesn't apply to necessarily everyone, but let me tell you something. When you live on one end of campus and have a class on the other end, it's not a fun walk/distance to travel.

22. Existing in a constant state of exhaustion.

23. That "It's fine, everything's fine" face.

Yeah, you know the one I'm talking about. It's that face that you make pretending that everything is okay when it really isn't.

24. What it feels like leaving campus for break.

It's sad having to leave friends and campus events, but it really is nice to go home. Especially when, if you're like me, you don't get to go home much.

25. Running into someone you don't want to.

This can include, but is not limited to: that professor you gave a bad review, the person from your high school who you constantly see on campus, the guy/girl you danced with at a party, that person you really just don't like, and most of all, seeing couples all over campus.

I don't need your opinions on why I'm single and you're not. We are two different people.

I'm so happy for my friends when they get into relationships, but that doesn't mean they get to have control over my love life, and that is what bothers me. For the record, I've been in four relationships, one lasting for three years, so I do understand relationships.

I Was At The Atlanta George Floyd Protests, Here's What It Was Like Before The Violence Started

What started out as a peaceful protest quickly resulted in destruction, with mixed opinions leading narratives on both sides.

When I heard about the protests happening in my city in honor of George Floyd, a black man who was brutally and fatally detained by police in broad daylight, I was conflicted about the best way for me to support a cause that I was passionate about. The senseless killings of people of color in America had been weighing on me, and I was eager for a way to help, to do my part. I wanted to be out on the ground with my community, having our voices heard. However, there was the issue of the coronavirus, a very real and troublesome threat that is still controlling our daily lives.

If You Can Eat Crap And Stay Thin You Aren't Healthy, You're Lucky

A high metabolism isn't a get-out-of-jail-free card!

Everyone has that one friend — the one who eats to their heart's content but never gains an ounce. Meanwhile, you feel like you gain five pounds just stealing a glance at a hamburger! My childhood best friend was like that, much to my chagrin. Anyone who hadn't witnessed her eat might be tempted to say that she was thin because of her diet, but she would sometimes eat a bag of Sour Patch Kids as a "meal." One time, I watched in awe as she chowed down on a "salad" made up of one part romaine lettuce, two parts shredded cheddar cheese, and two parts French dressing — it was nothing more than a red lake of dressing with bits of green and orange debris floating in it. Clearly our definitions of "salad" were quite different, as were our perceptions of a balanced meal.
