Post Spring Break Emotions, As Told By 'The Office' Memes

The post spring break blues. It's inevitable, but we are all in it together.

Post Spring Break Emotions, As Told By 'The Office' Memes

After a week filled with roasting your skin under the sun, flushing your money down the toilet, and ignoring your pressing responsibilities, it's time to come back to reality. We are in the final stretch, and although spirits are starting to dwindle, we can ALWAYS rely on "The Office" to bring light to a bad day. So, in the wise words of Kevin Malone, "why waste time say lot word, when few words do trick," and let's get into it.

Returning from break and remembering that you live in a tundra

You brush your teeth. You put on your Michelin Man-like parka. You muster up the courage to walk out the front door, and BAM. You get ROCKED by -10 degree weather. Remember, you signed up for this. The cold will pass — summer is around the corner (kind of).

Sitting through your first lecture 

We all know the feeling. You're sitting through your first morning lecture when suddenly you feel the weight of a cinderblock pulling at your upper eyelid forcing them to shut. We immediately place the blame of our fatigue on the boring class content rather than the fact that we went to bed at 4 a.m. after twiddling our fingers for 3 hours. We do not shame this behavior, but do know that you will be sporting the classic Stanley Hudson facade all day.

Reuniting with your best friends after being separated for the week 

Nothing like some wholesome friendship to clear up your post-spring break blues. Find your nearest buddy and give them a warm hug, because you need it, they need it, and everyone loves it. So, go out there and spread the love.

Realizing mid-class that you only have two months left to get participation points 

Lights, camera, action. It is time to put on a show for your professors and GSIs. It is time to rack in participation points. As the semester dwindles down, participation points can be the deciding factor as to whether or not you go home crying or smiling from ear to ear. So, make sure you get a good shoulder stretch in before class because that hand better be ready to shoot through the air when questions are asked.

When your professor asks you what you did to study over the break 

Ample studying over spring break has to be one of the biggest myths of all time. Although it may put you a tad bit behind when you return to school, it is important that you use the free time given to you to refresh your mind and relax before the final push of the school year.

Cramming for the exam you were supposed to be studying for for the last month and resorting to obscure acronyms 

It's acronym time. If you are struggling to cram loads of information into your brain before the back to back exams the week we come back from break, take a tip out of Creed's notebook and start firing up those acronyms.

When assignments that you did not know you had to do over break sneak up on you 

CHECK THAT SYLLABUS. As the end of the school year approaches it is important to keep up with those minor assignments that professors sneak into the syllabus. Keep up with your work so you don't have to end up like Dwight.

Celebrating at the end of the week after doing the bare minimum 

After a full week of trying to recover from your spring break irresponsibility, you deserve to celebrate. Take some time to enjoy yourself, spend time with friends, and refuel for another impending week of work.

Today is Bisexuality Day and I'm more than ready to give all the bisexuals some love by breaking the stigma. I see you, I hear you, I appreciate you.

Bisexuliaty is a sexual orientation where people can form attraction and/or relationships to more than one gender. More than half of the LGBTQ+ community identifies as bisexual but it comes with a ton of bias, discrimination, and violence. And, honestly, bisexuals tend to be forgotten becuase bi-erasure wants to hold onto biphobia to question the existence and legitimacy of bisexuality.

There isn't one person the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hasn't affected. While COVID-19 is risking everyone's physical health, it's also destroying the world's economy and personal finances, weakening mental health, wreaking havoc on education... and, well, the list goes on.

Among the many things being impacted is love.

A Couple's Wedding In Peru Was Postponed By COVID-19, But A Lifetime Of Love Is Worth The Wait

"We'd prefer to wait and have the wedding that both of us have always thought of."

During their first semester at Instituto de Empresa (IE Business School) while working on graduate degrees in Madrid, Spain, soon-to-be-newlyweds Rory and Gigi met when they were placed in a workgroup together — and the rest was history. Now, four years after their relationship began, the couple's fall plans to get married in Perú, where Gigi is originally from, have since been postponed by COVID-19.

Though things haven't always been easy for the pair because of immigration, starting a skincare business together, and now, canceling their dream wedding because of the pandemic, they have always worked together as a team (maybe we should all be in a workgroup with our future spouses).

A Bumble Couple's Wedding Was Canceled By COVID-19, But Nothing Could Come Between This Perfect Match

"The whole purpose of all the stress and time and tears was that we love each other and that was all that mattered."

Shortly after Kaihla's sister made her a dating profile on Bumble (despite her fear of being catfished), she matched with Shanna, and their chemistry was quickly undeniable. So much so that only a month and a half into dating, Shanna told her best friend "I think I'm going to marry her," and eventually, the nonprofit worker and elementary PE teacher duo proved this to be true.

In the fourth episode of a new docuseries called "Pandemic Weddings" by SoulPancake, the couple opens up about how they met, the difficulties of canceling a non-refundable wedding of their dreams (that took a year and a half to plan), as well as the pain of having family members who didn't support their marriage use the pandemic as a convenient excuse not to come.

This fall was my boyfriend and I's two-year anniversary! In the past for special occasions, we've typically gone out for a movie and dinner or just did something fun in general. However, in the year of COVID, we didn't really feel safe doing something like that.

Instead, we wanted to try something new that kept us significantly more socially distanced. Luckily, I found a TikTok trend a few months ago that gave me the perfect idea! The Target TikTok trend blew up all over for couples and friends alike. It seemed like a fun activity for us but also a good way to get each other gifts that we might not have thought about.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.

Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.
