The Last Month Of Your Second Semester In College, As Told by Jim Halpert

We all know college is rough but nothing is rougher than the last month before you finally get released to have some fun in the sun. When I need to relieve stress, I always turn to The Office for a well-needed laugh and no one relates it better than Jim Halpert himself. Here are some relatable Jim moments from The Office that help me feel like I'm not alone in my struggle.

Being so done weeks before you are actually done with classes

It's fine. I'm fine. I'm over it.

Staying up all night trying to finish that project, then trying to stay awake in class the next day

You haven't put in effort all semester, so now you pay the price.

Trying to participate in group assignments but being completely uninterested

You need to get a good peer review though!

Suddenly you have 5 papers, 3 projects, and 4 tests all in the same week that you definitely didn't see coming

The teacher brings out the final exam review guides and games and you don't recognize anything

When was this covered? Where are my notes? What is my life?

Eventually walking into the final and simply hoping for the best

Could you have studied more? Yes, but sometimes Taco Bell and Netflix are more important.

Then walking out, realizing you nailed it and are ready to take on summer break!

All the stress is over, and it is time to relax and enjoy some endless free time.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
