The Last Month Of College Told By The Office

Realizing you are getting a job and have to pay more bills. It’s stressful and on top of that, you just want to have fun.

The Last Month Of College Told By The Office

The last month of college is a crazy time. Trying to finish up school work, get things ready for graduation, (wait, what?) like pictures, announcements, buying a cap and gown (like my $40 hat that I just paid close to $100 for?). Realizing you are getting a job and have to pay more bills. It’s stressful.

On top of that, you just want to have fun. It is your last month before work becomes 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with no summer and you don’t get an entire month off for holidays. I have some feelings about that and so does "The Office," including Jim, Pam, and of course, Michael Scott.

1. I have all these things and I still have to do school work

Procrastination and senioritis are at an all-time high and you just don’t feel like doing anything.

2. But first, buy a cap and gown

You mean to tell me that I spent (or borrowed. I hate you, loans) all this money and a cap and gown to CELEBRATE my accomplishments is close to $100?

3. Next, graduation picture time

They cost a fortune unless you can find someone who isn't trying to break your bank.

4. Now, you have to address all those announcements.

But, I don’t want to lose my hand while writing all these to people who haven't seen me since my elementary school graduation.

5. Then, there are those people who post a graduation picture EVERY day.

Look, I know you are excited. But, seriously… that is SO unnecessary.

6. It finally starts to hit you that graduation is around the corner

What? This is real? It’s almost over?

7. You have to pay student loans

All those students loans you have? Yeah. You have to start paying them now.

8. You are responsible for things you have no idea how to do yet.

Wait, how do I apply for all these things? How do I start my own car insurance? How do I pay loans? How do I do my taxes?

9. You don't get a real summer anymore

Same Kevin, same.

10. At least we made it!

But hey, you are done with school forever (unless you are going to grad school)! So that is something to celebrate!

The last month of college is brutal and a lot of things are realized but you are almost done. You can do this! Congrats on graduating from me and everyone at "The Office!"

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
