College as Told by "The Office"

To lift everyones spirits.

College as Told by "The Office"

I think anyone that is in college will tell you that they have a love-hate relationship with it. I love being with my friends and honestly love my classes, but it does become extremely stressful and hectic at times. If you have ever watched "The Office," you will truly enjoy the comedy of this article.

When you have a test and you have to use the same pencil because you totally believe it has special powers because you used it last time and got an A.

When you decide you are just going to drop out, hitch a ride on a bus, become a hobo and totally run away from all responsibilities that you may have.

When you are sitting back relaxing and your friend texts you asking how studying for the test tomorrow is going. “What test?! We have a test?!”

When you have to write a 10 page essay but you have no clue what is going on, so you just start writing things that are completely untrue.

When your day is literally awful, and all you want is to be four years old again… and maybe eat a bunch of ice cream.

When your professors are the worst, obviously hate you and make everything due the same week. Do you like to watch the world burn?

When you just started Fall semester and you are counting down till summer.

When you finally get to go out.

When all your friends that didn’t go to college think that you are just paying to party. Meanwhile you are completely and utterly dead inside.

When you have gotten no sleep at all and you go completely insane.

When you walk out of a lecture like...

When you are completely stressed and can’t stop stress eating.

When you just cry for no reason at all.

When you should be studying, but you find every excuse you can to not study.

When you have NO money for real food, but you have like three-month old ice cream in the freezer so you eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

When your professor says that Wikipedia isn’t a creditable source.

Literally just college overall.

When you somehow make it through another semester, “I deserve a trophy.”

Here’s to crushing another year of college. I hope you make it through without completely losing your mind.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
