The Trials And Tribulations Of Spring Semester: As Told By Michael Scott

No, god, please no.

NBC Universal

Recently, I have discovered the show the office. Yes, I know that the show has been around for years, and yes I have lived under a rock during that period of time. The show is absolutely hilarious, and I'm so happy I discovered it.

It's the second week of college of my sophomore spring semester, and so far its been very interesting. to describe how it's been interesting, or how these past two weeks have been. I thought I would have my favorite character, Michael Scott, describe the pleasures of college. So here is college as told by Michael Scott.

1. When the first of many alarms go off...

I dread when the first alarm that I sent on my phone goes off, that means its the start of a new day. When in all honesty I want to go back to bed.

2. The 8 am class.

8 am's are rough, but having a cup of coffee may help you feel less dead inside... or not. But 8 am's, in my opinion, are extremely rough.

3. Doing class projects

Well, that pretty much sums that up.

4. When someone who annoys you tries to talk to you.

Again, that pretty much sums that up.

5. Meeting a new cute guy

You never know who you'll meet in college, it could be love at first sight. And I found someone who's pretty great, and to me is my Jim and I am his Pam... but this is about Michael, not my favorite iconic couple.

6. Going out in the cold... weather

God, I wish. But this winter has been brutal and filled with many snow storms and temperatures that were so cold. I am extremely ready for summer to be here.

7. When the professor says you don't need the textbook, and it's the only one you have of the three books that were required for that class!

That was the day I wanted to throw myself down a flight of stairs, but in all reality, it was OK and I got refunded for the textbook.

8. Realizing it's going to be a good semester! (Or will it?)

Besides all of the jokes I've made, I'm very excited to see what this semester brings me. And I will be looking at this semester very positively no matter what happens to get in my way. But I'm looking forward to having a way better semester.

I Was At The Atlanta George Floyd Protests, Here's What It Was Like Before The Violence Started

What started out as a peaceful protest quickly resulted in destruction, with mixed opinions leading narratives on both sides.

When I heard about the protests happening in my city in honor of George Floyd, a black man who was brutally and fatally detained by police in broad daylight, I was conflicted about the best way for me to support a cause that I was passionate about. The senseless killings of people of color in America had been weighing on me, and I was eager for a way to help, to do my part. I wanted to be out on the ground with my community, having our voices heard. However, there was the issue of the coronavirus, a very real and troublesome threat that is still controlling our daily lives.

If You Can Eat Crap And Stay Thin You Aren't Healthy, You're Lucky

A high metabolism isn't a get-out-of-jail-free card!

Everyone has that one friend — the one who eats to their heart's content but never gains an ounce. Meanwhile, you feel like you gain five pounds just stealing a glance at a hamburger! My childhood best friend was like that, much to my chagrin. Anyone who hadn't witnessed her eat might be tempted to say that she was thin because of her diet, but she would sometimes eat a bag of Sour Patch Kids as a "meal." One time, I watched in awe as she chowed down on a "salad" made up of one part romaine lettuce, two parts shredded cheddar cheese, and two parts French dressing — it was nothing more than a red lake of dressing with bits of green and orange debris floating in it. Clearly our definitions of "salad" were quite different, as were our perceptions of a balanced meal.
