20 Times 'The Office' Described High School Senioritis

20 Times 'The Office' Described High School Senioritis

It's almost as if your soul has left your body and in its place is a sloth.

Senior year. You've endured years and years of school, and it's finally coming to an end. Of course, if you plan on going to college, you have a long road of even MORE school ahead of you. However, the fact that high school is finally coming to a close is a dream come true. Senioritis eventually hits all school seniors-- when it rains, it pours.

It's almost as if your soul has left your body and in its place is a sloth. The amount of cares you give drop to little or even none. The blood, sweat, and tears shed over past assignments seem pointless, and the bare minimum becomes quite appealing. No one understands senioritis quite like The Office characters.

1. The school year has officially begun-- you and your friends reminisce on the good ol' years and wonder where the time went

2. You and your senior squad walk around the school like you own the place

3. Classes don't seem too difficult, life is good, and there's a moment where you've actually convinced yourself that you'll survive this final school year

4. . . .but then you get your first test back and see your grade

5. Every adult in your life begins to overwhelm you with questions about your future but you can't give them answers because you have no clue about anything

6. No matter how many times you take the ACT/SAT, your score either stays the same or drops

7. You submit applications to several colleges and just hope that one of them pities you enough to accept you

8. Having a mental breakdown in class because stress is dominating your life

9. Having a mental breakdown outside of class because you had a mental breakdown in class and missed everything the teacher taught

10. You finally decided on a college and actually get excited about the thought of going to college

11. . . .until you see how much college costs and realize you will forever be drowning in debt

12. When you think you're doing good in your classes and decide to look at your grades only to realize that you're actually failing three classes

13. Coming to the conclusion that the only good solution is to drop out of high school regardless of how close you are to finishing

14. When you actually take the time to study for finals

15. That moment when you return to your desk after turning in your final

16. When your teachers offer extra credit

17. That moment when you get your cap and gown and realize just how close graduation actually is

18. When it's FINALLY graduation day

19. When the valedictorian's speech is five years long and you just want him/her to wrap it up so you can go ahead and graduate

20. That moment when you finally graduate and realize that you'll actually miss high school

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in Friends is real, and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in The One WIth Monica's Thunder, and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

5 Ways to Turn a Bad Day into a Good One

When you're down, these things will pick you up.


Let's face it, we all have bad days. Sometimes you lose a cherished item, you get a speeding ticket, or you're not feeling the best. These circumstances occur often, but no one wants to let a bad day ruin their week. Here are five no-fail ways to cheer you up when you're feeling blue.

Throwing a Solo Dance Party 

This is my personal favorite way to cheer myself up. When someone had upset me or I'm not having a good day, I put on some rap music and jump around my room until I'm sweaty and happy. Make a playlist of all the mainstream songs you enjoy and listen to them on whenever you're feeling down. The best part of this dance party is that you can do it by yourself so no one will make fun of your dance moves

Watching Vines

Most people like watch cute cat or dogs videos when they are feeling down, but I like to watch vines. Nothing makes one happier than when they are feeling nostalgic. Vine was a star plucked too quickly from our orbit. Watching these six-minutes videos never fail to put a big smile on my face.

Listening to Audiobooks

Audiobooks are a great source of entertainment. When someone has made me angry, I can always count on my audiobook to envelop me in its intricate plot and character's adventures. It's impossible to be upset when you are completely invested in the life of another. if you're hesitant to try this one, I would still encourage you to listen to an audiobook. This type of reading is an experience you don't want to miss.

Watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine 

Normally, one would say watching Netflix or Hulu cheers them up, but I wanted to go a step beyond that. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of my favorite tv shows. The characters are funny and really unique. This show also encompasses a looot of diversity, which is really important in this day and age. There is no bad day that Jake Peralta's antics cannot cure and that I'm sure.

FaceTiming a Friend

My last tip is guaranteed to keep a smile on your face for the rest of the day. There's something about talking to a friend over FaceTime when you're not happy that makes you feel so good. The inane conversations you while on FaceTime can never happen the way they do anywhere else. Friends are great, especially when you are feeling down.

It's okay to have bad days, but it's important not to let those days over power you. With these five ways to get over a bad day, you'll find it rare that you ever have one again!
