Syllabus Week As Told By "The Office"

Syllabus Week As Told By "The Office"

Get ready for a week of sylly-ness!

Prepare you liver's and your bank account's, because we've reached that time of year again. Syllabus week, often referred to as "Sylly Week" is quickly approaching, and us college students are ready for it. We could say that we're excited for classes to start up again, and to spend hundred's of dollars on books, but who are we kidding? We're excited for the sleep deprivation, boozing and nights we won't remember. It's the best week of the semester, so grab your friends and a case of natty and get ready for the sylly-ness! To help you prepare, here's sylly-week as told by the office:

Twas the night before syllabus week, when everyone thinks they can drink way more than they can handle before leaving the pregame

You walk into a party and see your crush that you had class with last semester

Then your roommate eggs you on, forcing you to do a keg-stand, and suddenly the entire party is chanting your name

And before you know it, you're being dragged out of the party for being a little too wild

Then it's Monday morning, and you have to roll out of bed and make it to your first class.

And you have to sit through a boring lecture and hear about all of the work you're going to have to complete this semester, while you have to do an "ice-breaker" activity.

But.... your professor in your next class lets out 30 minutes early!

And here you are getting ready to go out again
when you know you shouldn't.

to make matters worse, you order pizza on your way home from the party because you have ZERO self-control.

Then suddenly it's Thirsty Thursday, and well, you have no choice but to go out again.

And Friday morning comes, and you're trying to make it through your classes, but you realize it's the weekend!!

Now it's really party time because all of your best friends come over to pregame (which actually means your screaming all of your favorite songs as loud as you can while you jump around pretending you can dance).

It's almost time to leave, but you NEED to hit the rap verse in Fergalicious

But you check your Snapchat the next morning, and realized you've posted your ENTIRE night on your story.

And you've finally reached the end of sylly-week and wonder if the late nights were worth the damage you've done to your body.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

Here's What Happens When All Of Your Friends Have Babies

All of my friends back home are married with children. No, really, they are.


Over the past few months, three of my friends have shared their pregnancy news with me, and I couldn't be more thrilled. Baby news always stirs up a range of emotions for me. I'm excited and crying happy tears (no joke, I started to cry when my best friend told me and showed me her ultrasound).

Being "Auntie Meg" brings me such great joy. You see, I absolutely adore children, especially my friend's kiddos. They can easily brighten up my day with their giggles, love you, and their goodbye kisses & waves. I absolutely love getting to be "Auntie Meg"; it could potentially be my favorite role to fill.

I don't think I've ever loved human beings more than I love these babies. These are kiddos I would do almost anything for; they truly have my whole heart and I couldn't be more thankful for each and every one of them. I've loved getting to watch my friends grow into incredible parents.

I love getting to be one of the biggest cheerleaders for my friends and their kids. Listen, I can't wait for the day when they are older and are asking to come over more and spend time doing fun things with auntie Meg. I can't wait to watch them grow and I can't wait to be able to come alongside them and be a shoulder to cry on and one of the loudest voices cheering them on (Next to mom and dad, of course).

While there is just so much good about your friends growing up and having children of their own, if you are not careful, it can also fuel a person's self-doubt.

It can bring up questions like, "am I good enough?", "what is wrong with me?", "why am I not where they are at?" I would be lying if I said that I have never thought or felt these things, but here's the thing: you are good enough, there is absolutely nothing wrong with you, and their path is not your path; you will get there when you get there.

Those things are so important to remember in times when you begin to doubt yourself or your worth.

Believe me, you are good enough, there is nothing wrong with you, and that is not the path you need to be on at the moment. This is a great time for you to focus on you and the things you want out of life. What are your goals? What is on your bucket list? Just because you don't have the things your friends have, doesn't make your life any less fulfilled than theirs is. Your life is just as wonderful and fulfilling as theirs is, just in different ways.
