10 Times Michael Scott Perfectly Described Life As A College Student In The Fall Semester

"I knew exactly what to do, but in a much more real sense, I had no idea what to do."

10 Times Michael Scott Perfectly Described Life As A College Student In The Fall Semester

Michael Scott may not be in college, but he definitely does a great job of summing up what it's like.

1. When your professor asks why you skipped class.

Sometimes you just have to skip one class to finish homework for another. *shrugs*

2. When you sign up for a math class.

Gotta love pre-requisites, right?

3. When your professor calls on you and you have no idea what the answer is.

Maybe if I ramble enough, the professor will think I know what I'm talking about.

4. The three weeks between Thanksgiving and the end of the semester...

Sleep? Never heard of it.

5. When you've been staring at your homework for an hour and haven't made any progress.

You know how some days you can be distracted by almost anything? Same.

6. When your adviser is explaining what requirements you need to meet to graduate.

Do the major requirements really need to change every year?

7. When you read the rubric for your final project.

Please send help.

8. When you ignore your homework in favor of a Netflix marathon.

Watching "Chopped" > studying for Basic Nutrition.

9. When it's Finals Week.

Otherwise known as the week where procrastination is at an all-time high. Hint: his is the perfect time to organize your closet or alphabetize all of the novels you own.

10. When Christmas Break is finally here!

Nothing beats the feeling you get after walking out of your last final of the semester.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.
