7 Times 'The Office' Described Your Online School Experience Better Than Your Academic Advisors

Watching the infamous show, "The Office," has made me realize that this show relates to every aspect of my life; relationships, social life, work and so much more. Specifically "The Office" reminded me of how I feel when it comes to online school.

There is so much work.

I wish someone would have told me that with online school, comes so much work. Yes, I can do it from the comfort of my own bed but that means lectures, exams, homework and studying all at once with less time to get it done.

Unhelpful professors can be the WORST.

Giphy

Not every professor you get is hard to get ahold of but I have had some that are teaching abroad in China and the only way to ask them questions is through email they check once a week. When exam day comes, best of luck.

Doing work when you want is good and bad.

I tell this to everyone who asks me about online school. The greatest part about online school is that you can do it when you want. That is also the most dangerous part. Who actually wants to do homework?

Technology sucks and everyone knows it.

Giphy

At this point, everyone is aware that technology will stop working when you need it most. The fear of a computer crashing during finals is something I hope nobody has to endure.

Nobody likes weekly discussions, nobody.

Giphy

Every college student knows what online discussion board assignments entail, specifically replying to a discussion point from another student. Every single reply to a discussion consists of, "Hi, _____! Overall I think your discussion was GREAT!" And that sums it up.

You can say what you want without repercussions.

Giphy

Another point about discussions, all of this is behind a screen. You can openly say what you want in discussions and replies and really nothing will come of it. So no, you don't need to be liked.

Accomplishments will come in time.

Giphy

Online school is hard but what school isn't hard? When you finish you can proudly say you NAILED IT!

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.

I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
