9 Times Michael Scott Perfectly Described College Life

Finals season is approaching & I'm sure we could all use a good laugh right about now.

9 Times Michael Scott Perfectly Described College Life

The warm weather is kind of here, the birds are somewhat chirping, and the libraries are starting to get packed. This means that the end of the semester is quickly approaching resulting in a lot of panic from students everywhere. To relieve some stress, I'm going to take you through a common semester with quotes from "The Office."

1. The first day of the semester when you walk into class and realize this will be your life for the next 4 months

2. When your professor skips the syllabus and goes straight into lecture material

3. When the first exam of the semester comes around and you realize that scrolling through Facebook and Twitter was of no use to you whatsoever

4. When you decide to start writing a 5-page paper on a book you never read two hours before it is due

5. When you're halfway through the semester eating ramen noodles for the 18th night in a row

8. But then you realize that eating ramen for 18 days straight isn't the worst thing in the world because in the end...

7. When the second exam of the semester comes around and you didn't learn from previous experience that Twitter and Facebook do not count as paying attention in class

8. When finals season approaches and you are nowhere near prepared for the absolute chaos that is bound to ensue

9. When you make it through exams and group projects and have to wish your senior friends the best of luck on their future endeavors

Only three and a half more weeks guys, we can do it!

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.

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.
