How To Channel Michael Scott This School Year

How To Channel Michael Scott This School Year

I love "The Office." It is most definitely my favorite television show of all time and probably the only show I watch religiously on Netflix. With the start of the new school year, I've realized life can get very stressful, especially juggling classes, extracurriculars and a social life. I wanted to get some advice about how to handle all this, so I went to Pinterest to look for some inspiring quotes to get me through each day. This worked, but as an avid Office fan, I realized I looked at quotes from the show much more often than I was looking at the inspiring messages. That's when it hit me: Michael Scott, as annoying, unpredictable, and crazy as he might be, is a character who is very uplifting. So, I decided that handling the insanity of a new school year might involve me channeling my inner Michael Scott. Naturally, this is how I'm going to react in these different situations.
