Michael Scott Explains The End Of The Semester

Michael Scott Explains The End Of The Semester

Ain't no party like Michael G. Scott party because a Michael G. Scott party don't stop

The end of the semester is thankfully coming to a close. You might be failing all of your classes, you might be overwhelmed with the stress of finals, you might be on the verge of tears at every moment in the day, but fear not. This series of GIFs of "The Office" and captions provided by yours truly will momentarily distract you from all your end-of-the-semester problems.

1. When you remember that finals are coming up and that you actually need to start studying or at least do something:

Or you can just put off studying until the night before like you did with every other exam that you took this past semester.

2. When your professor refuses to give you that extra credit:

Even though they never explicitly said that they don't give extra credit.

3. When you meet someone actually worth dating, but it's almost summer and you're like:

And as if starting a relationship being apart for three months would actually work.

4. When you're officially out of bonus bucks in your student account:

No more Chick-fil-A and Subway for you. Have fun in the cafeteria, my friend.

5. When your friends want you to go out, but you have to study:

So you come up with this as a response in hopes that they might let you study in peace. But not in too much peace because you would probably go insane.

6. When you reach that point in the semester when nothing you say makes sense at all:

I can only imagine what our professors are thinking reading our papers when the words we speak barely make any sense because exhaustion.

7. When this is quite literally you while you're taking that only essay question final:

Because professors say you can't write an essay in one night, but they want you to do write two essays in an hour and 15 minute class period. By hand.

8. When this is you taking every other final that you have:

But really that's just us in life. No one understands anything to be honest.

9. When you remember that you'll get to move out of your dorm and never speak to your roommate ever again:

It's nothing personal, but I just look forward to not sharing this close of space with you ever again. I also look forward to eventually unfollowing you on every social media because quite frankly we have nothing in common.

10. When your friends ask you to take a study break with them:

Just leave me here to die in this library. Then I won't have to take exams or do adult things like pay taxes and do laundry more than once a month.

11. When you remember that the end of the semester really means:

That you won't get to see your squad everyday. That you'll go 3 months without late night Taco Bell runs. That you won't get to hear about literally every minuscule detail of their day. The only plus side is that you'll build up a super high snap streak.

12. When it's finally time to move out and you have to say goodbye to your best friend:

But don't be too sad. Because unfortunately summer will end far too quickly just like it always does. Then you'll be back with your squad before you know it. You'll be going on random 1 a.m. Wal-Mart trips with them and taking spontaneous weekend road trips and you'll be whole once again.

I'd Rather Be Single Than Settle – Here Is Why Being Picky Is Okay

They're on their best behavior when you're dating.

Dating nowadays described in one word: annoying.

What's even more annoying? when people tell you that you're being too "picky" when it comes to dating. Yes, from an outside perspective sometimes that's exactly what it looks like; however, when looking at it from my perspective it all makes sense.

I've heard it all:

"He was cute, why didn't you like him?"

"You didn't even give him a chance!"

"You pay too much attention to the little things!"

What people don't understand is that it's OKAY to be picky when it comes to guys. For some reason, girls in college freak out and think they're supposed to have a boyfriend by now, be engaged by the time they graduate, etc. It's all a little ridiculous.

However, I refuse to put myself on a time table such as this due to the fact that these girls who feel this way are left with no choice but to overlook the things in guys that they shouldn't be overlooking, they're settling and this is something that I refuse to do.

So this leaves the big question: What am I waiting for?

Well, I'm waiting for a guy who...

1. Wants to know my friends.

Blessed doesn't even begin to describe how lucky I am to have the friends that I do.

I want a guy who can hang out with my friends. If a guy makes an effort to impress your friends then that says a lot about him and how he feels about you. This not only shows that he cares about you but he cares about the people in your life as well.

Someone should be happy to see you happy and your friends contribute to that happiness, therefore, they should be nothing more than supportive and caring towards you and your friendships.

2. Actually, cares to get to know me.

Although this is a very broad statement, this is the most important one. A guy should want to know all about you. He should want to know your favorite movie, favorite ice cream flavor, favorite Netflix series, etc. Often, (the guys I get stuck on dates with) love to talk about themselves: they would rather tell you about what workout they did yesterday, what their job is, and what they like to do rather than get to know you.

This is something easy to spot on the first date, so although they may be "cute," you should probably drop them if you leave your date and can recite everything about their life since the day they were born, yet they didn't catch what your last name was.

3. How they talk about other women.

It does not matter who they're talking about, if they call their ex-girlfriend crazy we all know she probably isn't and if she is it's probably their fault.

If they talk bad about their mom, let's be honest, if they're disrespecting their mother they're not going to respect you either. If they mention a girl's physical appearances when describing them. For example, "yeah, I think our waitress is that blonde chick with the big boobs"

Well if that doesn't hint they're a complete f* boy then I don't know what else to tell you. And most importantly calling other women "bitches" that's just disrespectful.

Needless to say, if his conversations are similar to ones you'd hear in a frat house, ditch him.

4. Phone etiquette.

If he can't put his phone down long enough to take you to dinner then he doesn't deserve for you to be sitting across from him.

If a guy is serious about you he's going to give you his undivided attention and he's going to do whatever it takes to impress you and checking Snapchat on a date is not impressive. Also, notice if his phone is facedown, then there's most likely a reason for it.

He doesn't trust who or what could pop up on there and he clearly doesn't want you seeing. Although I'm not particularly interested in what's popping up on their phones, putting them face down says more about the guy than you think it does.

To reiterate, it's okay to be picky ladies, you're young, there's no rush.

Remember these tips next time you're on a date or seeing someone, and keep in mind: they're on their best behavior when you're dating. Then ask yourself, what will they be like when they're comfortable? Years down the road? Is this what I really want? If you ask yourself these questions you might be down the same road I have stumbled upon, being too picky.. and that's better than settling.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
