The End Of Spring Semester As Told By "The Office"

The End Of Spring Semester As Told By "The Office"

18 things we all experience

It is that time of the year again: papers, projects, exams, and all-nighters fill the days. We have almost made it through and we are so close to summer, but there is still so much that stands between us and the days of summer. This is the end of the spring semester as told by "The Office."

1. At this point you have no money.

You have spent all of the money you saved up from last summer, these final few weeks mean going out is no longer an option. It cannot save you from all of your responsibilities, perhaps try Netflix.

2. Your professors start speaking in a foreign language.

It's like magically the last few weeks they are speaking in a way that you can no longer understand. It wasn't like you really understood anything before, but now it is completely rocket science.

3. When you look at everything you have left to do.

I believe that professors all forget about how stressful the end of the semester is for students. For some reason each of them like to assign 3 papers, an exam, a group project, and a final project all to be due in the last week of classes.

4. When you realize that you took a Netflix break for the entire semester.

The first week of classes you decided to 'take a break' well now its the end of the semester and it's time to make up for all that lost time. You got an A in watching Netflix but you probably have no idea what your grade is in any of your classes.

5. When you forgot to turn in an assignment and your professor mentions it.

Avoid eye contact at all costs, maybe they won't notice you.

6. When your professor is going over the study guide for the final.

We all know that the rush through it and basically tell you to know everything you learned this semester. Then the ask any questions and everyone in the room is so confused.

7. When you look at the first question and you don't know the answer and nor does your neighbor.

8. When your professor says on the last day of class "The stuff we learn today will be on the final."

Why, why do you do this to me? I thought I was good throughout this whole semester I don't deserve this.

9. The 2 am study break that you are way to hyper for.

Hopefully you won't break anything, including yourself.

10. The night before finals week begins and you start to question everything.

You probably will think, at least ten times, that you want to drop out of college. You will ask yourself why you even came to college in the first place. Perseverance!

11. When you professor gives you one of the essay questions for the final.

This is a gift, do not take it for granted! Prepare for the essay since you know what it is.

12. When you studied really hard or pulled and all nighter to finish you paper, but still got a bad grade.

13. When you get an extension on an assignment so you can continue to procrastination.

14. When one of your classmates complains about having and A- in the class.

Just don't talk to me about it...

15. It is hard saying goodbye to all of your friends for the summer.

You are glad that the learning is coming to an end for awhile, but you aren't ready to say goodbye to all of your amazing friends.

16. When you professor asks you to be honest on the course evaluation.

"You weren't the worst, but you weren't the best. You asked for honesty there it is."

17. When you are studying and you thought you got the concept right, but then your someone corrects you.

At least you attempted to understand it, right?

18. When you finally make it through the semester!

It was awful but you made it to the finish line. Celebrate now before you have to go through it all over again.

Good luck to you! We are all in this together.

I Blame My Dad For My High Expectations

Dad, it's all your fault.

I always tell my dad that no matter who I date, he's always my number one guy. Sometimes I say it as more of a routine thing. However, the meaning behind it is all too real. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my one true love, and it's going to be hard to find someone who can top him.

My dad loves me when I am difficult. He knows how to keep the perfect distance on the days when I'm in a mood, how to hold me on the days that are tough, and how to stand by me on the days that are good.

He listens to me rant for hours over people, my days at school, or the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' I watched that night and never once loses interest.

He picks on me about my hair, outfit, shoes, and everything else after spending hours to get ready only to end by telling me, “You look good." And I know he means it.

He holds the door for me, carries my bags for me, and always buys my food. He goes out of his way to make me smile when he sees that I'm upset. He calls me randomly during the day to see how I'm doing and how my day is going and drops everything to answer the phone when I call.

When it comes to other people, my dad has a heart of gold. He will do anything for anyone, even his worst enemy. He will smile at strangers and compliment people he barely knows. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, even if it means going way out of his way, and he will always put himself last.

My dad also knows when to give tough love. He knows how to make me respect him without having to ask for it or enforce it. He knows how to make me want to be a better person just to make him proud. He has molded me into who I am today without ever pushing me too hard. He knew the exact times I needed to be reminded who I was.

Dad, you have my respect, trust, but most of all my heart. You have impacted my life most of all, and for that, I can never repay you. Without you, I wouldn't know what I to look for when I finally begin to search for who I want to spend the rest of my life with, but it might take some time to find someone who measures up to you.

To my future husband, I'm sorry. You have some huge shoes to fill, and most of all, I hope you can cook.

Quiet on the set.


So you've decided that you want to be a Broadcast Journalist?

Many different thoughts go through you're while trying to first off figure out what story you want to pursue. After that, it's just a matter of getting everything that is needed for it and then putting it together.

For all clarity and purposes, I have already turned in my first news story, however as I was completing it, some (if not all) of these thoughts (or a variation of them) came across my mind at some point during the process.

1. Ok, so what are the important parts to my story?


And how do I convey those things to my viewers?

2. What b-roll should I get?

B-roll is supplemental or alternative footage intercut with the main shot.

Should they all be included?

7. Do my voice overs cover everything that my interviews don't?


What else is needed for this story?

8. Agh, my video is over the 1 minute and 30 seconds allowed time.


Do I reduce it or do I leave it as is? I guess it depends on how much its over.

9. How should I say my tageline at the end of the video?

tag line

The tagline is when the reporter says their name and their station affiliation at the end of their story.

10. Should I include a standup? Where should it be?

11. Should I include a graphic?

Is there something that can be said in a list form that the viewers need to see? Is it symptoms of a disease? Event details?

Does what I am saying make sense?

13. What does my script need to look like?
