26 "Grey's Anatomy" GIFs That Perfectly Describe College

College is not easy and isn't as glamorous as depicted in television and movies. There aren't parties every weekend, people will do the walk of shame, and you will get so stressed out by all of your assignments that all-nighters will become like second nature to you. Coffee and Red Bull will run through your veins. What better way to describe college than to use my favorite show, "Grey's Anatomy," where they show interns who just worked a 48-hour shift walking out of the hospital looking better than when they walked in with their hair done up and their makeup on? That is false advertising of a medical internship and here is how that relates to college.

1. The look you make when your teacher asks if everyone understands and you don't

Let's be honest: we all have that one class where the teacher talks so fast about a topic that by the time your brain digests it she's already moved on to something else. Calculus, anyone?

2. When the professor asks you a question and you sound like a stuttering fool

There are moments where you don't quite know the answer but if you talk long enough you may stumble upon it or sound like less of an idiot.

3. Getting a bad grade in a class for your major and second-guessing your choice of career path

A C doesn't seem too bad in Beginner's Art unless you're an Art major, no that bad grades are to be taken lightly. We're all aiming for As, right?

4. When you see a cute guy in the dining hall and you look like a hot mess

Nothing's worse than going to grab brunch with your friends in sweatpants and no make-up until you spot your crush and feel completely stupid. Seconds for dessert, anyone?

5. When you have three exams in one day and think your professors are out to get you

The only thing worse than studying for one test is having to study for more than one and it's always the classes required for your major. Chemistry and Physics can have a field day.

6. Hearing someone make a dumb comment in class

Have you ever wanted to slap someone sitting across the room for saying something irrelevant and stupid? No? Just me? Okay. It always seems to be right before a big exam, too. Just my luck.

7. When your phone is dying during your late class

Late-night classes are undesirable to any college student but sometimes they are unavoidable. The only thing to keep you company during three hours of lecture is your phone, but you always conveniently forget to charge it before and there are no wall outlets near your desk. Sigh.

8. Acing an exam you didn't study for

Admit it because we've all done it––walked into class on Monday morning after a long weekend to see an exam on the front desk. Sometimes the weekend flies by and you push off the studying or didn't write it down, but there is no better feeling than doing great on an exam you didn't study for.

9. When the professor calls on you and you weren't paying attention

The amount of times this has happened to me is no longer countable on my hands. Teachers must have a sixth sense for knowing when a student isn't paying attention and calling on them. Sometimes you just daydream.

10. Walking to your 8 am

Oh, the dreaded 8 am class that you somehow got stuck with freshman year, sophomore year and junior year. Grab an extra-large coffee with an espresso shot and face the class with confidence. Or sleep. It's your choice.

11. Explaining your less-than-stellar grades to your family

There's that one grade that will haunt you for the rest of your college career. Nothing's worse for building your self confidence than taking a class three times and still not passing, so gear up and face your family with pride and maybe slide over that grade. It's not like they have an eagle eye on you. Or do they?

12. Talking to your classmates after the hardest test of the semester

Physics, Calculus, Microbiology––pretty much every math and science course will have a hard test and nitpicking it after the fact can lower your confidence, so here's a tip: don't do it. The test kicked everyone's butt so just be quiet and move on. If the test was meant to be easy, they wouldn't call it a college course.

13. That feeling you get midway through the semester

The week before break, better known as hell week, makes everyone stressed because the last thing on the mind is tests and classes. Teachers cram in everything they can because they know that you aren't going to be doing any work while on break and they know that you'll forget everything except your flight plans and what drinks you'll be having on the beach.

14. That feeling during finals week

The ultimate dilemma: when you don't know whether to eat, sleep, or shower, or what order to do these in.

15. When you just need coffee, coffee, and more coffee

No matter if you just pulled your first all nighter or your fourth for the week coffee is in high demand and required if you plan on going to class or functioning.

16. When you see all your friends go on dates

Being single doesn't last for long, I think, but think of all the money you're saving by not going out and how much more time you have to study (or sleep).

17. Talking to your friend after her breakup

No matter the length of the relationship or how deep it went, there is one consensus after a brutal break up: all men are stupid. (Just kidding!)

18. When you're dragged to an event that you didn't want to go to

It's Friday night and you have a date––with your bed and Netflix. but your friends have other plans and invited you. There better be food or I won't be happy.

19. The one person who won't stop complaining about her classes

We get it, your classes are hard/easy/boring/political/etc. We don't really care.

20. When you find your best friend

Whether it's freshman year or senior year, you will find your person and good luck to you when you do.

21. When you leave for the end of the year

Realizing that you'll be leaving all your friends to go back home and either work or watch Netflix all day is the worst.

22. Realizing that you are now an adult

As Elis Grey said, "The carousel never stops turning."

23. Finals week

I feel like I'm drowning in shark-infested waters.

24. When It's Sunday night and you realize you have homework due Monday morning

Nothing kills the great mood of the weekend more than remembering that homework is due Monday morning. The better question is: Do I do the homework?

25. When you realize it's Friday

Or Thursday. TGIT. "Grey's Anatomy" is all new and the big question is: Who's gonna die tonight?

26. That feeling when you're asked a question in class

One of the finest moments for Dr. Yang perfectly describes what's happening in my head when I'm asked a question in class. Anyone else?

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

Halloween is every costume-lover's favorite holiday. Growing up in Canada, I remember wearing turtlenecks and sweats under my princess costumes. The opportunity for it to be socially acceptable to dress up as anybody but yourself for just one night a year is one most of us love taking advantage of.

I was doing "couples" costumes with my girlfriends before I ever had a boyfriend. There was a year in high school in which my best friend and I dressed up as two of the Golden Girls and one year in which we went to Halloween parties dressed up as Iago and Jafar.

Our world is so full of such sadness, and sometimes we just need something to bond us to one another. What better way than science puns? They're not just for the intellectuals among us (though they might get a bit more of a laugh out of some of these than us more ignorant folks) they're also for those of us who want a good laugh or maybe to impress a particularly science-y crush. Some of these puns might even teach us.

Our lives have changed a lot in the past year, and along with everything else, so have our morning routines.

- Like a lot of fellow skincare junkies, clean beauty has been a passion of mine for years — more and more of us are embracing natural ways of taking care of our bodies.

- A few months ago, I was introduced to Symbiome: a newly launched brand with supercharged ingredients from the Amazon that showed faster results in healing acne and pigmentation on my skin than anything I've tried.

- Each minimalist product from the brand has ten or fewer ingredients, all naturally and sustainable sourced. Most have less than four.

Being Indian, clean beauty has always been a core part of my beauty rituals passed down from my mother and grandmother. From massaging warm coconut oil into our scalps to sweeping DIY turmeric saffron masks on our faces, most South Asian households were doing the clean beauty thing before the Western world labeled it as such.

For that reason, when I first heard about Symbiome: a clean skincare brand featuring supercharged ingredients sourced from the Amazon, I was immediately intrigued. The brand features four postbiomic oils, a restorative cream, and two cleansers.
