10 Times John Mulaney Perfectly Described The Life Of A College Student

10 Times John Mulaney Perfectly Described The Life Of A College Student

"It is so much easier not to do things than to do them."

If you don't know who John Mulaney is at this point, I suggest you open Netflix immediately and find out. One of my favorite comedians, Mulaney is very funny, a little bit awkward, and super relatable. In honor of his new stand-up special, "Kid Gorgeous," (now on Netflix!) here are ten Mulaney moments that perfectly describe college life.

1. Being in a required class and knowing you'll never need to use this information in your career field.

2. Going down to the dining hall five minutes before it closes and just being happy that you found some food scraps left.

3. Hearing that a class has "mandatory" attendance.

4. When you're on the verge of a mental breakdown but keep it suppressed because you have three essays due in an hour and are too busy for that.

5. How you feel when your parents ask how your grades are.

6. Running into people at the grocery store when you're home for the summer and hearing about how much you've "matured."

7. When you move into your new apartment and your parents want a tour.

8. When you try and fight for a table at the library during finals week.

9. Pretending to feel bad that you didn't even get out of bed today.

10. When you're on your third all-nighter and start having delusional thoughts.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
