Two years down, two to go. That's what completing your sophomore year of college feels like. There's definitely a wide variety of emotions that come with being halfway done your college years (assuming, that you follow the typical "4-year" college path). Who better than our favorite Dunder Mifflin Regional Manager Michael Scott to relate to our multitude of feelings associated with wrapping up college year number two.

1. That awesome feeling when completing your last final of sophomore year

Nothing like a great celebratory feeling than leaving your last final of the school year. Michael Scott would've certainly held an office party to celebrate your accomplishments and get the party planning committee to throw something together at the last minute for you.

2. That hot-shot feeling when you're now an upperclassman

You're not a newbie to the college scene anymore, you're definitely a hardened member of the school. In the fall, you'll be telling newbie freshmen of school years past and how horrible the dementors are as a tough upperclassman who completely knows what they're talking about.

3. When you realize you need to start figuring out what you want to do

Junior year means that the questions about your future skyrocket, and that's about the scariest thing that can happen. At least you have the summer to reflect on what some of your potential answers or excuses are going to be.

4. When you don't recognize anyone from your high school now

Sure, you've only been out two years, so you should at least recognize a decent amount of the current high school students, but you're realizing that you recognize absolutely no one in pictures or photos from your high school.

5. Realizing you mostly have to take major classes and not liberal arts fillers anymore

Michael Scott definitely would've spent his first two years in "Intro to Musical Theater" and "Parkour 101", but when it's actually time to take important, that's when panic mode starts to kick in. Classes with a meaningful impact on your future? Scary!

6. When you realize you're halfway done paying college bills

Halfway done receiving those term bills! You're getting a big chunk of those payments out of the way! What a positive relief to have those done, it's almost like the joy of hitting Meredith with your car in the parking lot.

7. But when you realize you have two years of paying college bills to go

Yikes! Still have four semesters worth of bills to pay, which is going to cost a pretty penny and likely loans to last us for years. Hopefully, we'll have some money to spare for our condo or a new George Foreman grill without foot on it.

8. Knowing that you're one year closer to never having to go to school again

It feels so close you can taste it. You only have two years left of studying, taking tests, and getting a mouthful from the professors. That's what she said.

9. But that once you finish these last two years you actually have to enter the real world

Are you going to be prepared for the outside world outside college? Is school going too quickly? Are you finally ready to act like an actual adult, Michael? That's what she said.

10. Finally, realizing that you have only two years of what may be the most fun time of your life

While school is definitely your priority, it's time to realize that you're halfway through some of best times of your life. It's almost as sad as Toby coming back to Dunder Mifflin. Hopefully, you'll make these next two years even more amazing than the first two.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

I'll admit it, when I first met you, I wasn't sure how well things were going to work out. Although I didn't know you that well at the time, we seemed to be opposites in almost every way. You were cool, edgy, and laid-back, and I was more awkward, goofy, and anxious.
