The beginning of a new semester brings busy schedules, heavy workloads, and lots of stress. Even though classes have just begun, we all deserve little breaks here and there. Here are five comedy worlds that you can slip into to enjoy a taste of somebody else's reality.

1. "Parks and Recreation"

Because nothing will make you feel better than Leslie Knope and her relentless optimism.

2. "New Girl"

"New Girl" features another insanely positive protagonist. Who wouldn't want to virtually hang out with Jess and the gang in 4D?

3. "The Office"

This is the show that sparked my love for sitcoms. I would never want to be a paper salesman but "The Office" tricks me into thinking I might.

4. "Grace and Frankie"

"Grace and Frankie" feels like spending a weekend on the beach with your grandma. While she gets high and throws around the f bomb. Perfection.

5. "Friends"

If you're a freshman, you may not have made a solid group of friends at this point in the year. So for now, spend some time with Ross, Rachel, Monica, Joey, Phoebe, and Chandler.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester.
