11 Stages Of Registering For Classes, As Told By "New Girl"

Oh class registration, how I haven't missed you.

Oh, class registration, how I haven't missed you. Welcome to the most stressful time of year. Your registration time probably isn't ideal, you probably have no idea what classes you should even be taking, and any class you think you may want to take is already full and you don't register for a few more days. Sound familiar? Here's a step by step guide to what it's actually like to register for classes.

1. First: you open your computer, forgetting how terrible registration is and get ready to start planning our your classes

2. Quickly, you remember the horror that is registration and wish for the days when it wasn't your job to plan your entire future

3. You decide its the ~responsible~ thing to set up a meeting with your advisor because clearly, you can't do this on your own

4. You walk into the meeting and they instantly bombard you with all of the requirements you still need to fill and that the classes you were thinking about taking are all wrong.

5. You walk out of your meeting less advised than ever and more stressed out than before if that's even possible

6. You spend hours looking up teacher and class reviews to ensure you have the best professors with the least amount of work. You also use it as an excuse to read all of the gossip on the faculty.

7. You finally put together a schedule with no 8 AMs, no class on Friday and you're done by 2 every day

8.But, then you realize that half of those classes are full and you have to start over

9. The day finally comes when you actually need to register. You spend about an hour prepping yourself for the mayhem while also constantly making new schedules because all of your classes are filling up

10. It's time. You quickly type in your course numbers online. Luckily, these classes aren't all full and you don't have to frantically search for something on the spot.

11. However, you're back in those 8 AMs and you can kiss "no class on Friday's" goodbye and say hello to late night classes. But hey, at least you survived.

19 Things About Being a Nursing Major As Told By Michael Scott

Michael just gets it.

If you're a nursing major, you relate to the following 19 things all too well. Between your clinical encounters and constant studying, you can't help but wonder if anyone else outside of your major understands the daily struggles you face in nursing school. And even though being the regional manager of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, Inc. isn't the same as being a nursing major, Michael Scott does a pretty accurate job of describing what it's like.

1. When your professor overloads your brain with information on the first day of class.

2. Realizing that all your time will now be spent studying in the library.

3. Being jealous of your friends with non-science majors, but then remembering that your job security/availability after graduation makes the stress a little more bearable.

4. Having to accept the harsh reality that your days of making A's on every assignment are now over.

5. When you're asked to share your answer and why you chose it with the whole class.

6. Forgetting one item in a "select all that apply" question, therefore losing all of its points.

7. When you're giving an IV for the first time and your patient jokingly asks, "This isn't your first time giving one of these, right?"

8. You're almost certain that your school's nursing board chose the ugliest scrubs they could find and said, "Let's make these mandatory."

9. Knowing that you have an important exam that you could (should) be studying for, but deciding to watch Netflix instead.

10. Getting to the first day of clinical after weeks of classroom practice.

11. When you become the ultimate mom-friend after learning about the effects various substances have on the human body.

12. Running off of 4-5 hours of sleep has become the new norm for you.

13. And getting just the recommended 7-8 hours makes you feel like a kid on Christmas morning.

14. You have a love-hate relationship with ATI.

15. When your study group says they're meeting on a Saturday.

16. Choosing an answer that's correct, but not the "most" correct, therefore it is wrong.

17. And even though the late nights and stress can feel overwhelming,

18. You wouldn't want any other major because you can't wait to save lives and take care of others.

19. And let's be honest...
