32 Essential GIFs

Nothing punctuates a text better than a carefully selected GIF. Emojis can be effective in conveying some emotions, but they are not nearly as impactful or as visually appealing as a GIF. Still, nothing ruins the impact of a GIF reaction like having to pause a conversation to scour the web for the perfect one, only to lose the opportunity to copy and paste in a timely manner. To combat this tragedy, I have compiled a list of thirty-two essential GIFS to add to your arsenal. It doesn’t matter if you pronounce it Gif or Jiff, these graphic interchange formats are proof that there is a GIF for every occasion.

1. For When You’re Angry

2. For When You’re Hungry

3. For When You’re Hangry

4. For When You’re Horny

5. For When You’re Angry and Horny

6. For When You’re Angry, Horny, and Hungry

7. For When You’re Sad

8. For When You’re Feeling Jealous

9. For When You’re Over the Convo

10. For When You’re Feeling Yourself

30. For When Your Professor Says the Final is Cumulative

31. For When You’re Rejected from Every Internship Opportunity

32. For When You’re Ready to Escape Your Flesh Prison

Alright folks, there you have it. Thirty-two GIFs for almost every occasion, emotion, and season. Of course, this list is not comprehensive. But the beauty of the GIF is the ability to repurpose it. GIFs are funny and effective because the user has the power to manipulate the original intent of the images to meet whatever hilarious or poignant point they’re trying to make. So feel free to play around with this starter pack and rest assured; if you keep this list on file, you will never have to worry about your friends replying before you are able to skewer them with the perfect response. If work on getting your copy and paste speed down, you'll always have the last laugh.

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.

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.
