The Beginning Of The Semester As Told By 'The Office'

Too bad Schrute bucks can't buy all of your textbooks for this semester.

The Beginning Of The Semester As Told By 'The Office'

The beginning of the semester is a special time. You're excited to be going back to your life at college and seeing all of your friends, but you're also depressed because going back to school means that you have to deal with going to class, taking exams, buying books, spending too much money, and getting no sleep.

1. When you arrive back to school and unexpectedly see one of your friends.

You just missed the squad so much that you needed to tackle them to the ground in a giant hug.

2. When you remember that you actually have to go back to learning and getting an education.

We all momentarily forget that we're at college for academics not just our squad and late-night fast food adventures.

3. When you go to your first early morning class and your professor is a morning person and expects you to be one as well.

If you consider 2 o'clock in the afternoon to be morning, then we are all morning people. Anything before that is just too early.

4. When your professor gives you the syllabus and introduces himself/herself then lets you leave.

Those professors are the best and nicest people who are too good for this world.

5. When there are like 600 people in line for the bookstore.

"Do they even go here though? There aren't that many people at this school," is the only thought in your head.

6. When your professor gives you a pre-test on the course to see what kind of work he/she can expect from you.

Don't they know that you're out of practice? You just came back from a four to six week long vacation where all you did was eat, watch re-runs, and try your hardest to not leave your house for days at a time.

7. When you realize that you're probably taking too many hours this semester.

Maybe next semester, you'll listen to your advisor, but probably not.

8. When your professor asks you to say your name and what you want to be when you grow up.

At least you knew the answer to the first part of the question. Eventually, you might figure out what you want to be when you grow up, or if you grow up.

9. When someone asks why you aren't "talking" to anyone or dating anyone.

As if I have time to do schoolwork, go to class, work, have a social life, and a love life. One of them is going to be neglected.

10. There's always that one kid in every class who says something dumb every class period and you're just like:

If you don't experience this, then you might be that kid. Sorry.

11. When your class is cancelled and you're only two weeks into the semester:

Getting "class is cancelled" emails are the happiest moments of your life right now.

Good luck to everyone on this semester! Keep being awesome and watching "The Office" to procrastinate your schoolwork.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn Playlists
King of Wallpapers

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?

Things to do in October.


Halloween is a fun holiday for everyone of all ages. There are so many fun things to do in the month of October before Halloween and the day of Halloween. I love Halloween especially with all the candy and different types of goodies. Halloween is for everyone that enjoys to be a part of this wonderful holiday and also be careful on Halloween as well. It gives everyone a chance to show what they love to do as well.
