The First Day Back To College, As Told By GIFs

The first day of school - The day when the countdown to the LAST day of school begins!


The first day back to school is the best and worst of a college students life. Showing up to class and not doing a damn thing is amazing, but showing up to class and listening to your professor go on for two hours about the semester and the stress that'll follow is the worst.

The highs and lows of syllabus week, and any week really, have one thing in common: they can all be told by GIFs! Cheers to GIFs, syllabus week, and the semester that is before us!

1. Pre-Syllabus week party

2. The morning after that party

3. Mentally preparing for school the next day

4. Mentally preparing with something to take the edge off

5. Struggling to fall asleep

6. Waking up the next morning for the first day of the semester

7. When your roommates asked how you slept

8. Walking to class and realizing that you haven't walked this much since last semester

9. Getting situated in lecture

10. Five minutes later...

11. Waking up from that nap and not knowing what's going on or where you are

12. Finally finishing classes for the day and going back home

13. Starting your homework

14. Five minutes later...

15. Eating after a long day of napping, crying, and pretending to listen to your professors talk about the course expectations

16. 30 minutes later...

17. When your roommate's asked you how your day was

18. Finally going to bed after the longest day ever

19. Waking up the next day and realizing you have to do it all again for the next 16 weeks

Cheers to the first day back and cheers to the second semester!

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
