"The Office" Revival Might Be Completely Unnecessary

"The Office" Revival Might Be Completely Unnecessary

Bears. Beets. Billions of new episodes to binge watch.

Cue the piano intro and the montage of Scranton, Pennsylvania! On December 18, NBC announced that there is a possible revival of the beloved TV show in the works.

It would include a mix of brand new characters working at Dunder Mifflin, as well as a few of our favorite employees from the original American series. Although there are minimal details about the project, it is likely that more information will appear on our newsfeeds as the 2018-2019 NBC season approaches.

As we all know, “The Office” is definitely one of the most popular and highly-praised TV shows of our time, and a revival is sure to catch the attention of many avid fans or newcomers to the series. However, is a revival really what “The Office” fans want?

Personally, I love “The Office” how it is; I’ve seen the series at least twice through and can quote the show in any given situation. I’ve taken several quizzes to figure out which character I am (it’s Pam) and know which episodes I need to watch if I’m having a bad day or need to relax. But when I heard about this revival, I was skeptical. As much as I love “The Office,” one of my biggest fears is that the revival will just draw out the series in an unnecessary way. I don’t want my favorite show to be ruined for me.

One of the biggest factors that will definitely affect how much criticism it’ll receive is which characters will be coming back. In the series finale, we know that some characters that we’ve grown to love have left Dunder Mifflin probably for good. This would include Andy, Kevin, Darryl, and (of course) Jim and Pam.

But that still would leave a handful of employees that we also love, like Erin, Angela, and the one and only, Dwight K. Shrute. It is hard to tell at this point who is on board for the revival, since no casting details have been officially released.

However, it was reported that we will not see Michael Scott anytime soon in the revival. Although Steve Carell's character made the show a hit, his lack of appearances in the eighth and ninth season set us up for unlikeliness of showing up to Dunder Mifflin for another few episodes.

So, here is what we can gather from this so far: "The Office" revival may either be the best thing for the series, or the worst, depending on how many episodes they choose to produce, the characters they bring back, and the new ones they create. We'll definitely have to keep our eyes open for any news related to the revival, because for avid fans like me, every piece of information is vital for our favorite show.

Who knows? Maybe we might get to see one more Christmas party, or one more prank on Dwight, or even one more "that's what she said" joke.

The 10 Stages Of A 2:30 P.M. Kickoff, As Told By Alabama Students

But we still say Roll MF Tide!


We all have a love-hate relationship with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff at Bryant Denny Stadium, especially when it's 94 degrees.

1. Immediate sadness


What do you mean I have to wake up at 9 a.m. to get ready?

2. Bracing yourself for the worst


It's a marathon not a sprint ladies and gentleman.

3. Accepting the game is going to happen


Rain or shine we are all in that student section screaming our heads off.

4. Trying to wear the least amount clothes possible without being naked on the Quad


Is it me or does it get 10 times more hot the minute you walk on to the quad?

5. Shedding a tear when you walk out your front door once you feel the heat and humidity on your skin


Is it fall yet?

6. Drowning your sorrows inside a Red Solo cup at 11:30 a.m. at a fraternity tailgate


Maybe I'll forget about the humidity if I start frat hopping now.

7. Getting in line to go through security realizing it'll take an hour to actually get inside Bryant Denny


More security is great and all but remember the heat index in Alabama? Yeah, it's not easy being smushed like sardines before even getting into Bryant Denny.

8. Feeling the sweat roll down every part of your body


Oh yeah I am working on my tan and all but what is the point of showering before kick off?

9. Attempting to cheer on the Tide, but being whacked in the head with a shaker by the girl behind you. 


Shakers are tradition, but do we have to spin it around in a full 360 every two seconds? I have a migraine from just thinking about it.

10. Leaving a quarter into the game because Alabama is kicking ass and you're about to have a heat stroke.


I'll watch the rest in air conditioning thank you very much!

We may not love the 2:30 kickoffs but Roll Tide!

I Made Emma Chamberlain's Mediocre Vegan Cookies, And They're Pretty Incredible

Emma and her vegan cookies have made their way into my heart, and are here to stay.


One day, I went down the black hole that is 'YouTube at 3 am' and discovered my favorite social media influencer of all time: Emma Chamberlain. I started binge watching her videos every night for about a week, where I came across her "Cooking With Emma" series. I decided that I wanted to give her vegan antics a go for myself.

I've never cooked or baked anything with the intention of it being vegan, so not only is that new territory for me, but I've never even eaten a vegan cookie. The only reason I'm doing this is because Emma did, and she is aesthetic goals.

To start the journey of vegan baking, I took to Pinterest, just like Emma, and found this recipe to use. Although the video that inspired all of this used a gluten free recipe, I opted for only vegan, because I'm allergic to most of the ingredients that make things gluten-free.

In true Emma style, I used a whisk to combine the wet ingredients together, making sure to use her special technique.

Then, I did the same thing with the dry ingredients.

After that, I dumped everything together and combined all of the ingredients.

Once they were combined, I chopped up a vegan chocolate bar, because Emma and I like chocolate chunk cookies, not chocolate chip, there's a difference.

Now that everything is combined, I made balls of dough and stuck it on a pan, and baked them while I binged more Emma, because what else would I be doing in my spare time?

The recipe said to make the balls a lot smaller, but we aren't perfect, so I made them gigantic. In my head, I thought the worst thing that could happen was it turn into one big cookie, but that's a whole other video you need to watch.

I took them out of the oven, and they were brown on the top, but still a little doughy. At this point I was tired of waiting and eager to eat them, so I disappointingly set them aside to cool, which only lasted a minute or so before I snagged one up to try.

The taste was definitely one I've never associated with cookies, and came to the conclusion that if I decided to go vegan, it would be doable with these cookies and Emma Chamberlain by my side.

Emma inspired me to get out of my comfort zone, which is a reoccurring theme throughout her channel, and I'm happy to be apart of it. She taught me that even if mediocre cookies is all you have, eat them with pride because you made them yourself.
