New Girl is basically the modern day FRIENDS. With the more modern group of friends comes even more unbelievably relatable quotes from every single episode. Nick, Winston, Schmidt, Coach, Jess, and Cece remind us all not only of our own lives and friends but also just what it feels like coming back to your college for the spring semester.

1. Seeing all your friends again after the long break 

Everyone is back in town, and you finally don't feel bad making yourself a drink before 6 p.m. It's time to gather up the group and start the semester off right.

2. You to your friends when you actually go to every class for a whole week

It's the beginning of the semester and everyone is determined to do better this term than they ever had before. That lasts about a day, and by the end of the first week, you find yourself feeling the need to celebrate any kind of attendance in class.

3. Sitting in class on the first day 

Walking into your first class and seeing all the new cuties that you don't recognize from around campus is a great feeling. Then suddenly you're hoping there's a randomly partnered group project you could get put on together.

4. When midterms roll around and you really have to study 

Maybe your first few weeks of classes were easy or at least manageable, then out of nowhere it's midterms and you're faced with the realization that you're going to have to seclude yourself in the library for a week to make it through all these tests. Is it too late to drop out?

5. The moment when someone steals the commuter spot you were waiting for

Any parking on campus, but especially commuter parking, is the biggest pain all semester long. Nothing is worse than when you've been patiently waiting for that person to back out of their spot so you can take it, when suddenly someone else whips around the corner and swoops in. Thanks to them you're late for class.

6. The feeling when you finish your finals 

After spending so many long hours in the library every day slaving over flashcards and notes, the final you were worried about is over and you're actually feeling pretty confident about it. Time to go tell everyone you know.

7. The moment finals are over and it's officially summer

Everyone has finished their finals and needs some serious stress relief. Gather the group once more to celebrate the start of the summer.

13 Reasons The USWNT Deserved Every Celebration They Had

Not that you should even need them.

It's the hot topic everybody is talking about right now. Did they over celebrate? Were they rude? Was it unsportsmanlike? Overkill? The list goes on and on for the things people are saying about the USWNT win over Thailand this past week with the shutout score of 13-0.

I have so many issues with people trying to take away the glory of what those women on the field were able to accomplish in 90+ minutes. They now lead in goals scored in the tournament, they are the defending champions, Thailand knew who they were going up against and knew what to expect when playing a powerhouse team, and every single woman deserved to celebrate the goal that they made because what makes the fourth, fifth or even thirteenth goal any different from that first one?

Let me just break them all down for you

1. Alex Morgan

Scored in the twelfth minute of the game, she opened the gates for what would soon be a record game for her and the team.

2. Rose Lavelle 

In the twentieth minute Rose scored the second goal for the team but her first World Cup goal.

3. Lindsey Horan

Rounding out the first half, Lindsey scored her first World Cup goal in the thirty-second minute.

4. Sam Mewis

Opening up the second half, Sam got her first World Cup Goal in the fiftieth minute of the game.

5. Alex Morgan

In the fifty-third minute Alex scored her second goal of the game.

6. Sam Mewis

Just one minute after Morgan, Sam was able to drive it home again for her second goal of the day.

7. Rose Lavelle

Just two minutes after Sam, Rose was able to get her second goal of the day in and the USWNT scoring three goals in about three minutes.

8. Alex Morgan

In the seventy-fourth minute Alex got her hat trick, three goals in one game. I don't care who you are that is an amazing accomplishment for any person to achieve in less than 90 minutes.

9. Megan Rapino

While not her first World Cup or international goal, it was her first of the tournament in the seventy-ninth minute.

10. Alex Morgan

In the eighty-first minute, not even ten minutes after her hat trick she scores another, history being made.

11. Mallory Pugh

In the eighty-fourth minute, Mallory was able to get one in the net making it her first World Cup goal.

12. Alex Morgan

In the eighty-seventh minute Alex Morgan was able to score her fifth goal of the game making her one of two players from any nation to score that many in one game.

13. Carli Lloyd

In the second minute of stoppage time, senior player Carli got her first goal in the tournament and sealed the record win over any team.

So my question to you is, why should they have stopped celebrating? Many of the girls who scored goals in this game it was their first and second in the World Cup, the largest soccer stage, and where our team shines the brightest. Alex Morgan broke records on her one. The team broke the record for the biggest win. They scored more goals in one game than the USMNT has scored in the last four World Cups.

These women are being put down because they did something nobody else could. They deserve every single celebration they had. In so many other PROFESSIONAL sports we praise the end-zone dances and over celebrations, we praise Michael Phelps for his records and all of his gold medals, each as celebrated as the first, and in college football teams play worse teams on their homecoming so it can be a steamroll game. How are any of these different?

Yes, it is a world stage. Yes, all eyes are on the USWNT to either win it all or watch them lose it all. This isn't some rec league tournament, those professional players knew the odds were stacked against them and they knew from the beginning if they didn't put the first goal in the net or even the second that there would be no stopping the forces that are the women of the USNT.

Am I An Addict And Social Media Is The Drug?

Hey, my name is Ashley Williams and I am a social media fanatic.

I don't know if it's because I was born into this generation that is built on social media and technology or what, but I just know it's a part of me that I won't be able to get rid of.

Social media has amazing perks... it's a faster way of getting and keeping in touch with someone, you have your daily news and entertainment right at your fingertips, and you can share and learn just by opening up an app. But, despite these amazing advancements social media has provided for me, recently I've been feeling kind of like a... zombie, or slave to social media.

It's gotten to the point where it's a part of my morning, afternoon, and nightly routine. I wake up to browsing my social media to ending my night checking my social media one more time just in case I missed anything that's "worth my time."

Recently in my Writ 102 class, we had to write a research paper about anything our hearts desired, and I chose to write about the impacts of social media on someone's mental health.

While researching and trying to get my sources, I came across tons of information that suggest that millennials are most likely to experience a phenomenon called FOMO, fear of missing out. Crazy, cause that's exactly how I feel when I check my Twitter or Instagram feed right after I was just on it knowing damn well, nothing new has popped up.

...And this thought came to me... am I an addict and social media is the drug?




Is getting a notification, a" like", a dm, or something new being popping up on my feed the dopamine that's fueling my craving for my social media addiction?



Is this bad? I mean it's not like I checked my phone seven times, mindlessly scrolling while writing the first half of my blog... I'm not that addictive. It's just a little crave.
