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.

6 Neopets Stories That Could Have Been Real Books

If I can still feel the pain after 15 years, it should have been a real book.

As a young writer, I spent countless hours both reading and (mostly unsuccessfully) writing for The Neopian Times- a feature of Neopets.com that allowed young children to express their creativity through stories, comics, and articles. While I will absolutely not be sharing my own (few) published works to the greater public, there are a few stories that I think back to often and wonder what ever came of the authors.

1. "Sleeping Beauty"

Read it here!

My body image issues didn't begin until a couple years after I read this story, but the author tackles them very well. The protagonist is unable to see herself as beautiful, and it destroys her; it takes over her life. That's definitely something that young teens and tweens can relate to.

2. "My Vacation" (and others by jeanaet)

Read it here!

This author had a theme of writing stories about her own Neopets, and her stories were always quite entertaining to read. Her characters were always getting into exciting adventures with some emotional moments mixed in as well.

3. "Superficial"

Read it here!

One of the first series I came across, this story introduces Maybelle, who has generally always had good fortune in life, but also showcases the aspects of her life that are less than ideal (her distant relationship with her mother) and her struggle to make friends because of assumptions others make about her.

4. "There Is No Cost to Friendship"

Read it here!

This is one of the last series I remember reading. In my original review of it (on one of my Neopets pages for which the account has been deactivated) I mentioned that I constantly forgot I was reading a Neopets story when I was reading it. Some more great themes about assumptions and friendship!

5. "Playing the Part" (and others by precious_katuch14)

Read it here!

I had the hugest celebrity crush on Kat when I was in 5th-6th grade. I used to print her stories out and read them all the time, and even made a DeviantArt profile to have another connection to her. The story I was most obsessed with was "Playing the Part", a story featuring her own Neopets. I used to write my own versions of the story featuring my pets, and sometimes act the story out with my dolls.

Kat, I hope you're doing well these days.

6. "They'll Never Hear a Word We Say" (and others by sytra)

Read it here!

THIS STORY. Sytra is one of the best authors I have ever read work from, the only author who made me shed real tears over this website. This story in particular and its sequel, I felt such a strong connection to. I printed it out and even did a book report on it in seventh grade. The stories reminded me strongly of Lauren Myracle's "The Winnie Years" series, which I discovered around the same time.

"They'll Never Hear a Word We Say" ripped my soul apart and put it back together multiple times over, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Sytra, I hope you're still writing things, and if you come across this, please inform me where I can purchase anything you've written professionally. As in the days of Neopets, I will read every single story.

Do you remember any of your favorite stories from Neopets?

It's just that time of year where the moments are good, the weather is perfect, and I am so stressed that I just need to see other people miserable to mask my own life. "Friends" is so incredibly but perfectly relatable.

2. The look you have when see you only have four weeks left to salvage what is left of your grades. 

3. My friends and I when we see the pool opens.

4. When I see a cute boy I know I won't ever see again after four weeks.

5. When you mentally try to lose weight but this is how you show up on the first day the pool opens.

6. Me dreaming of my future career.

7. When the anxiety of graduation takes over your mind and body..it just sort of happens..

8. The question we all ask our professors when he gives us that barely passing grade knowing GOOD AND WELL we have been making passive aggressive comments about barely making it to graduation!
