9 Reactions To Typical Facebook Posts As Told By 'The Office'

Why are you the way you are?

9 Reactions To Typical Facebook Posts As Told By 'The Office'
SSN Insider

A favorite pastime (and procrastination tool) of college students is social media. We're addicted to the mindless scrolling, our eyes constantly glued to our screens as we refresh apps every few minutes. With the extensive amount of time we spend online, we've grown accustomed to seeing the different types of posts. Here are 9 typical Facebook posts, as told by the cast of The Office.

1. The funny cat video

Who can resist watching those crazy felines chase unreachable lasers or fit into impossibly small boxes?

2. The too-personal breakup status

We get it, you're heartbroken. But do hundreds of acquaintances need to be reminded of it every time they log in?

3. The shopping haul photo album

How much money could you possibly make to afford ANOTHER car?!


4. Friends hacking other friend's accounts

I highly doubt Randy wears pink unicorn underwear, and if he did, he wouldn't be posting about it on Facebook. You're not fooling anybody.

5. ANOTHER engagement announcement

There's nothing like a couple who have known each other for two months letting everyone know how they're going to live happily ever after. Meanwhile, the rest of us are scrolling through and being reassured we'll be forever alone.

6. The bombardment of posts on your birthday

Don't you just love it when even your most distant of online acquaintances stop by your wall to wish you a happy birthday?

7. The provocative photos after a night out

Admit it, you're judging.

8. The infographics containing false information

No, sea lions aren't descendants of real lions. And no, this isn't an "alternative fact." Don't believe everything you read on the internet, kids.

9. Anything relatively obnoxious

I don't want to read that. Stop wasting my time, I'm trying to waste my time.

It's safe to say that millennials have a love-hate relationship with social media. While it can bring creative insight into our everyday lives, it can also be detrimental to our happiness if we become too preoccupied with it. So when you're scrolling through Facebook next, focus more on the good instead of the bad. More cat videos and happy birthday posts, less judgment and ignorance.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
