17 Times Every College Student Has Encountered A 'JR Smith Moment'

We feel ya, LeBron.

jr smith lebron game 1

Literally, everyone is talking about the awkward, laughable, and cringe-y moment during the first game of the NBA finals. JR Smith, a player for the Cleveland Cavaliers, passed the ball in the WRONG direction of the court. With only mere seconds left in the game, he failed to shoot or pass the ball to break the tie and win against the Golden State Warriors. To be completely honest, I'm not a huge sports fan, and even I screamed, noticing the huge blunder while watching game one.

Smith's teammate, the legendary LeBron James, certainly noticed.

Game 1 NBA Finals Blunder

This iconic picture of an extremely pissed LeBron is circling the Internet, and his expression is seriously #relatable. We can all imagine what he's thinking in that split second of frustration. In college, we experience moments that make us want to throw our hands up, scrunch our eyebrows and have that "are you freaking kidding me" look.

We understand your pain, LeBron. Here are 17 times every college student has encountered a JR Smith moment.

1. When you walk into class and someone is sitting in your unassigned assigned seat

2. When you're the only one working on the group project, and your classmates are ignoring the group chat

3. When you're looking hot at the club on a Thursday night, and your crush is looking at someone else

4. When your roommate continuously ignores the compiling dishes in the sink

5. When your professor hasn't said anything about homework at the end of class, but a classmate asks if there's an assignment due

6. When turnitin.com says your last name is plagiarism

7. When you pay thousands of dollars in tuition, but the roads on campus are still trash

8. When you pay thousands of dollars in tuition, but there is NOWHERE to park on campus

9. When you park in a faculty spot for 0.005 seconds, and Campus Parking gives you a ticket

10. When you email your professor in an elegant, structured, and professional manner, and they respond with "K- sent from my iPhone"

11. When your Uber driver charges you WAY too much for a two-minute ride to the nearest party

12. When your academic advisor informs you that you have to take a course COMPLETELY unrelated to your major in order to graduate

13. When you're completely broke but your friends plan on going out to a pricey dinner (because they know you don't have a backbone and that you will join them anyway)

14. When someone types on their Macbook too loudly in class

15. When your only friend in one of your classes decides to skip that day

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
