This Is What Characters Would Major In If 'The Good Place' Was On A Campus

"Jason's the guy that dropped out the first semester to try to make it big using his Soundcloud account."

Michael: Engineering

He can create anything and everything but no matter how hard he tries, nothing ever seems to work out for him.



Tahani: Drama

Tahani pretends to be good, but she is ultimately the most conceited person you could ever meet. At least she's beautiful and has that killer accent.


Jason: *Drops out of school to do drugs and be a DJ*:

You have to have at least a few more brain cells than Jason (not to be confused with Jianyu) to be able to make it in college. Jason's the guy that dropped out the first semester to try to make it big using his Soundcloud account.



Good Place Eleanor: Psychology

Critical thinking, problem-solving, self-improvement. Eleanor has cracked the code of human (and demon) behavior and she learns something new every day.



IRL Eleanor: Math

Only in a math problem would someone buy 20 assorted family-size bags of chips. Also, no one likes math majors. Math majors don't even like math majors.



"Real Eleanor": Pre-law or Pre-med, whatever makes parents proud

"Real Eleanor" is the definition of perfection, so she obviously has to be a doctor or a lawyer. Parents won't settle for anything less.



Chidi: Education

He's patient, tells bad jokes, and has trouble interacting with adults. Plus he can teach Eleanor to be good over and over (and over and over) again, which takes some serious commitment.


Shawn: Business

Shawn has no moral or emotional compass and honestly just wants to see results. If it's not working, he's not going to keep funding it, period.

Jianyu: Religious Studies

Jianyu the monk (not to be confused with Jason the DJ) is the epitome of peacefulness and spirituality (on the surface at least).


Janet: Philosophy

Is there any other major that can claim to know everything? No, probably not.



Bad Janet: Political Science


Bad Janet just wants to see the world burn. She couldn't care less about anyone she goes around creating anarchy wherever she goes.

Mindy St. Claire: Science

Mindy has been on her own in the medium place for so long that she's forgotten how to interact appropriately with people, similar to socially inept science majors that haven't left the library anytime in the last 4 days. Plus she's got some serious alcohol dependency issues— so definitely a science major.

Trevor: Journalism

Always trying to get up close to people in order to get the dirty gossip before anyone else, Trevor is the epitome of the bad place. You know you can't trust him and yet, you almost feel like you want to.

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.
2817

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...


1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Your Summer 2019 Bucket List

A physical(ish) embodiment of all you've been saying you'll do "next Summer."

17
views

It's that time again! #summer2k19 has finally arrived, and when it comes to how you can spend your time, the options are ENDLESS. That being said, this time around, you and I are going to keep binge-watching to a healthy minimum and enjoy our newfound time doing something(s) that will give us a sense of not just comfort, but fulfillment.

1. Make That BANK

It can be exhausting to put in 20, 30, 40+ extra hours a week for a part-time (or full-time) job on top of everything else going on in your life right now, but it will be worth it in one way or another (even if it's just in the form of a few hundred dollars). I am SO incredibly excited to start my new job this week and feel a smidge more secure about my finances, plus have some extra spending cash for the upcoming school year!

2. Volunteer

There is ALWAYS somewhere that you can put your skills to use for the good of your community. Animal shelters, hospitals, food pantries, LGBT centers, and more (note to self: draft article on extensive volunteer opportunities) are always looking for passionate people to help those less fortunate or those in need. In addition, with the 2020 election coming up, there are so many candidates whose campaigns need volunteers! That being said, don't forget about local elections, too! By volunteering in your communities in this form you can obtain a platform to have your voice heard and inform those close to you! The feeling of satisfaction from making a difference, no matter how small, is like no other and will help spur you on through the hard moments that you and your community experience.

3. Have A Garage Sale / Donate

Declutter, declutter, declutter! It's not very hard to find items that you don't use anymore, clothes that you no longer wear, or things you're not sure why you even bought in the first place. This is a great way to get a little bit more change in your pocket, or to simply feel good knowing that your belongings will be given a second chance at finding happiness in their forever home! Either way, you just made more room for whatever may happen to catch your eye! ;)

4. Learn Something New

I always have one thing or another on my mind that I "wish I had the time to do." This year, it's playing the piano that we've housed for years but has for the most part, not given the love it so rightly deserves. Starting to pick up a new language, taking a Summer class on any topic from traditional cooking to jazz dance to scuba diving, asking your dad how to play Texas Hold'em, whatever the subject may be, there's no time like the present (especially with all of the extra hours you've stumbled upon).

5. Grab a Book!

Stop letting those books on the shelf collect dust! Whether it's just reading 20 minutes a day or a book a week (...maayyybe every other week), try to incorporate reading into your schedule. Other than just flat-out being fun when you find a series you enjoy, your brain will thank you! I always find that I'm ACTUALLY able to remember the words I'm scouring my mind for`during a reading spree.

6. GET OUTSIDE

Go on a hike, a run, for a picnic, to the beach, what have you. The Summer only lasts so long and getting your daily dose of vitamin D won't be NEARLY as easy to come by come September.

7. Explore Locally

You KNOW there's always been that one place in town that you've heard of, that people take pictures at, or that's just always caught your attention. Whatever and wherever it may be, go find it!

8. Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone

When fun opportunities arise that seem intimidating, don't let your uncertainty hold you back. This being said, baby steps are important! If you have a fear of heights, it might be wise to ease your way up to the biggest and baddest rollercoaster at an amusement park. Don't scar yourself, but don't let FOMO get the chance to rear its ugly head.

9. Make Time For Friends

Carolyn Barrington

Make the effort to keep your friendships from fading over the Summer, whether you have plans already or are just staying in town! Just going to grab ice cream cones at that to-die-for ice cream parlor in your area to catch up or checking in every once in a while to talk about that CRAZY thing you know they'll want to hear about will make you feel at peace and remind you that you have people all around that care deeply about you. :)

10. Continue To Be Awesome (AKA Yourself)

Above all else, find comfort in your time off from any normal duties over the course of the school year. People always focus on getting their bodies "Summer ready," but the most important thing is to not focus on other peoples' expectations and instead make sure that you are happy with yourself and your triumphs without comparison. Striving to obtain the most colorful and updated Instagram feed (which, by the way, is oftentimes full of orchestrated smiles and poses) isn't important in the grand scheme of things, and will keep you chasing greater and greater numbers of likes and comments. Focus on what is important to you now and if you're thinking ahead, for the future. Other people's opinions of you and your actions do not define who you are.


"Next Summer" is now. Go out there and have another Summer 2016.
