Seven Michael Scott GIFs That Perfectly Describe My Past Week

Seven Michael Scott GIFs That Perfectly Describe My Past Week

The thoughts I've had throughout the last seven days told by the "World's Greatest Boss," Michael Scott

It seems that Michael Scott GIFs can describe or relate to anything going on in someone's daily life, whether happy, funny, or sad. These are just a few I picked out that relate to thoughts I had throughout last week.

1. My reaction when I was assigned to write a paper in my Natural Science class last Monday....

Communication major + science = an absolute nightmare, Communication major being assigned to write a paper on science = Really? I have to use my writing skills on a subject I'm not good at? Torture, torture I say. However, I shall prevail, no matter how difficult it will be.

2. When I realized that Walsh's production of the musical GODSPELL starts next week....

Side note: If you are around the North Canton area next weekend and would like to see yours truly playing John the Baptist in this musical, stop by Walsh and see this marvelous show that my castmates and I have worked incredibly hard on perfecting. Dates are Thursday March 30th, Friday March 31st, and Saturday April 1st and all three of these showings start at 7. Okay, free advertising over!

3. When I had a great play practice for GODSPELL last Thursday and was given the day off for last Friday's rehearsal because of that....

Sure, spring just started and summer's not even here yet. However, there's no better treat to reward myself for a great day of play practice than ice cream. By the way, that's exactly what I got from Walsh's C-Store ("The Bucket") after my rehearsal. So, ice cream did make that Thursday better for me.

4. When my supervisor asked me if I could work an extra four hours during my shift last Monday....

Of course I told her yes, even though I really didn't want to, because I'm a reliable and good employee. Also, instead of wanting to bang on a mug all day and not go to work like Michael's doing in this GIF, I wanted to keep playing on my roommate's Xbox One all day and not go to work since I had no homework, but I ended up flipping burgers till 10:30 anyway!

5. When I tried to comeback at my roommate after he made a joke about me last week and I failed, miserably....

Did I say failed, miserably? Okay, that's what I thought. All I know is that I need to work on my comebacks and think before I speak. Otherwise, embarrassment happens.

6. When I found out last week that my FAFSA was completed for financial aid....

You know it! I was doing cartwheels when I got that email telling me this news. Okay, maybe not cartwheels, but I at least did a fist pump!

7. What I thought once the weekend came and ended my hectic, stressful, but overall decent week....

Despite this crazy past week I had, I knew I could finally relax over the weekend and just chillax like Michael says, and boy was it nice! In the words of Rihanna in her song "Cheers (Drink to That)," "Cheers to the freakin' weekend." Can't wait to see what next week has in store for me!

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

Summer And Jobs

Working summers doesn't have to be tedious.


Like many other college students, I was ready for summer but was kinda bummed that I had to work. Its not that I didn't like where I was working, I actually was really lucky to be working in a hospital environment but I just hated being alone all summer from 9-5. I've had this job for a few years now and a few other paid interns came and went but I never really connected with any of them. This year is different though.

I got really lucky to have another intern work with me that was very similar to me. The tasks we got were always simple but they were made to be more fun because I got to do them while talking with someone else. Now I actually enjoy and look forward to going to work.

The key to finding a good job is finding one that you enjoy doing and one that will help you gain knowledge that will help you out with future career plans. Working with friends also make tasks enjoyable! I would be careful with working with your friend however because if your job needs you to be serious and focused, being around your best friends may distract you from that.

Another thing that definitely makes summer jobs more enjoyable are taking breaks! It is your summer vacation after all! I'm not saying don't take a day off just to sit around, but if you make plans with family and friends, take a Friday off and enjoy the warm weather and good company! Employers understand that us college students and on break and have lives, they are usually very lenient with days off!

If you have to do a summer job to make money to live off of or pay for college, the best thing to do is look at the big picture. If you don't enjoy your job but can't afford to quit, remember that the money if going to help you out a lot. Also, this job is probably only for the summer right? So it's not permanent my friend! Get through these annoying few weeks and you will be back at college, taking steps for a bigger and brighter future.

Summer jobs are tough, I know, but make the most of it! And don't forget to enjoy it whenever you can!!!
