College Fall Break As Told By The Office

It's called a "break", but we all know that we have so much work that we need to be doing during that time.

College Fall Break As Told By The Office
NBC

Fall break in college is completely different than fall break in high school. In high school you get a whole week and you typically do not have to worry about doing any homework all week. Most of that reason being because your teachers made things due before the break because they knew when you came back you would not remember any of the lessons. However, in college, fall break is a whopping two day break where you think you will be able to relax and not have to worry about the hustle and bustle of schoolwork, but really the entire break you are just thinking about all the work you should be doing that is due in a few days. Since most people thoroughly enjoy The Office and its dry humor (myself included), here is a breakdown of the many emotions college students experience during fall break.

That feeling you get after you attend your last class and your break has officially started

You finally get home, or wherever you are going for break, and you can't help but want to party because you don't have to do anything tomorrow

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F10%2F636116753631658328-1497720089_office2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=968&h=1ce4e83ddf93873f109b8f6c92bfc09f750f9c57ed6bf4042a8d177ab07fade8&size=980x&c=3238171553 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F10%252F636116753631658328-1497720089_office2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D968%26h%3D1ce4e83ddf93873f109b8f6c92bfc09f750f9c57ed6bf4042a8d177ab07fade8%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3238171553%22%7D" expand=1]

But then it hits you... you won't be with your friends for the next few days, so you instantly become lonely

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F10%2F636116757082202409618399953_office3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=152&h=7ee2ca4a67678cb0970d5ea6546c250a44bcd5c6675d8e1c03459cbe7fe04d32&size=980x&c=1838247683 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F10%252F636116757082202409618399953_office3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D152%26h%3D7ee2ca4a67678cb0970d5ea6546c250a44bcd5c6675d8e1c03459cbe7fe04d32%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1838247683%22%7D" expand=1]

Suddenly you come to your senses and realize that it's only a few days without each other, so for right now you're just enjoying your break

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F10%2F636116760237580073-185634892_office4.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=22&h=5f897a1bdbcba42c152ec5ff18252f35e9fa8e5a69b71b3178890d5c514b89c2&size=980x&c=3477067049 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F10%252F636116760237580073-185634892_office4.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D22%26h%3D5f897a1bdbcba42c152ec5ff18252f35e9fa8e5a69b71b3178890d5c514b89c2%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3477067049%22%7D" expand=1]

And then it is here.... you only have one day left of break and you remember all the work you have to do that you should have been doing this whole time

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F10%2F636116761265085506-1581510982_office5.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=506&h=ddd6a04ef98058f2e321e53a79523ee86f2514b4eb758cca345934909c405261&size=980x&c=5921288 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F10%252F636116761265085506-1581510982_office5.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D506%26h%3Dddd6a04ef98058f2e321e53a79523ee86f2514b4eb758cca345934909c405261%26size%3D980x%26c%3D5921288%22%7D" expand=1]

And then you get mad at yourself because as much as you wanted to do 'nothing' for break, you realize that you have literally done NOTHING....

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F10%2F6361167619165607631681915768_office6.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=17&h=96514110ad84ec5409042caa75c4bfeeb00b5d6b3bdfe7ca9e4ec563ed2fc1b3&size=980x&c=3853955678 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F10%252F6361167619165607631681915768_office6.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D17%26h%3D96514110ad84ec5409042caa75c4bfeeb00b5d6b3bdfe7ca9e4ec563ed2fc1b3%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3853955678%22%7D" expand=1]

It is the day before you have to go back to class and you realize you have a lot more to do than you actually thought you did

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F10%2F6361167682511772121718713352_office7.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=569&h=f22dafe6b1a025316109c21d368a28c109188ef750474b53ee87e83723056408&size=980x&c=3492113018 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F10%252F6361167682511772121718713352_office7.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D569%26h%3Df22dafe6b1a025316109c21d368a28c109188ef750474b53ee87e83723056408%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3492113018%22%7D" expand=1]

You start your homework and quickly realize you have a speech, an exam, and a paper that is due tomorrow... and you could have sworn that it was not due for another week

About an hour into your homework process you realize that you have actually been on social media the whole time and you just can not force yourself to do actual work

You can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and you are almost done with everything you have to do
