17 Things That Describe A Night In Downtown Grand Forks As Told By ‘The Office’
NBC

Let's be real, just about everyone has seen at least one episode of "The Office." If you haven't, shame on you, it is actually really funny. I finally decided to hop on the bandwagon and watch it and I realized just how much laughter I was missing out on.

But anyways, Grand Forks is a college town and you can bet that you will run into what feels like everyone you know while you're downtown. The college kids are downtown Thursday through Saturday, and I guarantee that one of these 17 things can apply to your night downtown, if not all of them.

1. When you realize that it is $1.50 Long Islands at O’Reallys

Giphy

Broke college students live for cheap alcohol.

2. How you feel being the only sober one at the bar

Giphy

Being DD and actually going downtown with your friends is not fun when you are the only sober one.

3. When the cute guy across the bar buys you a drink

Giphy

Girl, give him that cute smile and hopefully he will come talk to you. If not, at least you got a free drink.

4. When your favorite song comes on at Level 10

Giphy

You can bet every girl in there is singing at the top of their lungs.

5. When you run into your friends that you haven’t seen in forever

Giphy

*Screams of excitement*

6. When you see a girl crying in the bathroom over some stupid boy

Giphy

"Honey, it's okay, he wasn't worth your time anyways. You can do better."

7. Being the mom friend and making sure no one dies

Giphy

You are the mother duck and you need to make sure all your little ducklings make it home and in one piece. You are superwoman.

8. When the creepy guy keeps trying to hit on you

Giphy

Please stop. Please.

9. When you are hungry but you only have enough money to buy alcohol downtown

Giphy

Do not drink on an empty stomach. Do not do it.

10. When your friends are more intoxicated than you are

Giphy

You start thinking, "Damn, I really need to catch up."

11. When someone vomits and you turn into the mom friend

Giphy

There is just something about the smell of vomit that makes a person sober up.

12. Having to run to the next bar because the frozen tundra known as North Dakota doesn’t give a shit if you are cold 

Giphy

I bet you left your jacket at home because you figured the alcohol would keep you warm.

13. Making friends with random girls in the bathroom

Giphy

You will leave the bathroom feeling like you have five new best friends.

14. Seeing the ambulance outside Joe Black’s and being glad it isn’t here for you

Giphy

That was a close call. Hope that one survives.

15. When you get to Joe Black’s and it is way too crowded

Giphy

Mmmmm, yeah, maybe it is time to go home now.

16. When you realize you get to go to Red Pep after a successful night downtown with your BFFs

Giphy

It is the best drunk food.

17. Crawling into bed after the fun is done

Giphy

Place that glass of water and advil next to your bed — you'll need it in the morning. And who knows, you might wake up and regret everything you said and did the night before.

Enjoy your night downtown, but please find a sober ride home.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).

Netflix

"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

When You Have A Disability, Finding A Job Is Twice As Hard, Believe Me, I Know

We have got to create a safer work environment for people with disabilities.

"My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn't prevent you from doing well, and don't regret the things it interferes with. Don't be disabled in spirit as well as physically." – Stephen Hawking

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
