Finals Week As Told By 'The Office'

"'You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.' -Wayne Gretzky' -Michael Scott"

Finals Week As Told By 'The Office'

Whether you like it or not, finals week comes twice a year. And every time it brings about stress, anger, frustration and sweet sweet relief when it is finally all over. There's no better way to express this crazy range of emotions than through your favorite characters from The Office. (And it will waste far less time than binging 20 episodes of the show like you want to!)

When your professor says you have a final paper and a final exam.

When your friends drag you to the library and force you to study.

When you realize you need over 100% on the final to get an A in the class.

When you have no clue how to start your paper even though you're staring at the rubric.

When you're trying to find a table in the library.

Even though last week it was empty.

When you start studying for the class you ditched all semester.

After pulling an all nighter.

When you try and stress eat all of your problems away.

When you and your friends need a quick study break.

When you decide there's just no point in studying anymore.

When you study all night and you actually understand the material.

When you're giving a presentation and decide to go off script.

When you walk into your hardest final.

... and when you walk out of your hardest final.

When you forgot to hit save on your final paper.

When your friends won't hang out with you because they're too busy studying.

When you try and write a paper about a topic you know nothing about.

When the stress of the week really gets to you.

When you decide it might be easier to just drop out than keep studying.

When you get your final grades.

When you finally go home for Christmas break.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
