10 Things From "The Office" That I Wish Were Real

"The Office" goes beyond just humor, heart, and bunches of paper.

10 Things From "The Office" That I Wish Were Real
Doug Kerr

Since it first aired in 2005, “The Office” has cemented itself as a classic American comedy series. With over the top workplace shenanigans and an inefficient boss, many of us are left thinking “Thank God I don’t work at a place like that.” Nevertheless, the universe of “The Office” has some pretty cool stuff that I wish really existed.

1. Pretzel Day.

The episode where we all related to Stanley more than ever before. Although Pretzel day does exist (mark your calendar for April 26th), it’d be nice if every workplace observed the holiday like the Scranton Business Park.

2. Princess Unicorn.

My horn can pierce the sky! If only something like this existed during my childhood. You can never go wrong with a princess doll or a toy unicorn. However, a toy with the royalty of a princess combined with the magic of unicorn is a game changer.

3. Prison Mike.

Underneath that hard exterior lies a gentle soul. I think we’d all learn something about ourselves, the prison system, and dementors if given the chance to speak with this reformed convict.

4. Belsnickle.

Have you been impish or admirable? If children were raised with the frightening Belsnickle instead of jolly Santa, we’d have less of these darned millennials buying avocado toast over houses.

5. Suck It.

Maybe a better name for David Wallace’s invention is needed, but it’s not a bad idea. A vacuum tube designed for children that cleans their room for them couldn’t possibly have any safety hazards.

6. Bob Vance, Vance Refrigeration.

Bob and Phyllis are one of the most overlooked couples of the show. Let’s not forget that in the Crime-Aid episode of season 6, Bob Vance paid a thousand dollars just to hug Phyllis. Jim and Pam who?

7. Threat Level Midnight.

Michael Scott gifted us with a masterpiece in season seven. There’s been a lot of buzz about a potential Office reunion, but I’d rather see Michael’s lifelong dream turn into a reality.

8. "Somehow I Manage" By Michael Scott.

Michael’s famed unpublished memoir on his life and management style. The cover even features a picture of Michael shrugging. It shouldn’t take very long for it to hit bookstores, as he’s already written it all in his head.

9. Charles Miner.

He was kind of a jerk to Jim, but it wasn’t completely undeserved given that he’s known to slack. I just wish that I had a boss that was an exact replica of Idris Elba, that’s all.

10. Belles, Bourbon, and Bullets.

There’s been a murder in Savannah, I do declare! In season 6 episode 10, Michael pulls out a murder mystery board game known as Belles, Bourbon and Bullets. Characters include Caleb Crawdad, Deb U. Tante, and Voodoo Mama JuJu

"The Office" is a show that will forever be in the hearts of its fans. Someday, maybe some of these neat ideas will be in our hands.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
