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.

10. When the professor is explaining the reading and says it might be hard:

11. When you have an assignment to attend a guest speaker's lecture in addition to class:

12. When it's course registration and the class you really wanted to take is filled:

13. When you have very high expectations for yourself at the beginning of the semester:

14. When the school year is getting really, really stressful:

15. When you realize you can do anything you put your mind to:
