Because the struggle is real.

The Process Of Getting A Summer Job As Told By 'New Girl'

You come home from school after busting your butt of a stressful semester and taking finals, and all you want to finally do is relax. Between friendships, sorority obligations, schoolwork, clubs, and having a social life there is barely time for anything. But, when you come home it finally hits you that you can't relax quite just have to find yourself a summer job before the rest of the college kids in your town come and take them all up. You kind of wish to yourself that you set up an internship for the summer, but who the hell wants an "unpaid" internship....definitely not me. As much as I would love the experience, unfortunately my great looks are not going to fill up my gas tank on its own or buy me any of the summer clothes I wish for.

1. You come home from college and you realize that you are poor as sh*! because your parents have been the ones putting money in your account all semester and you have no way of supporting yourself.

2. You become angry with yourself because you want to treat your fine-ass self to some new clothes and sneakers, but realize you have no money to do so. I mean, hey, you just pushed through a really rough semester. You should be rewarded with something…right?

3. Well, you then decide to ask your parents for some money just so you can at least get started. They can’t possibly expect you to go job hunting without any gas in your car.

4. You call at least seven places and strangely enough, “nobody is hiring.” You Google every place you can possibly think of before you start considering giving up.

5. You then think to yourself that you like kids, so why not become a babysitter… What a fantastic idea! So you apply online to about 12 applications.

6. Well, somebody finally calls you back after filling out the 4,000 applications you applied to online.

7. You become super excited and put on your best outfit to try and impress the manager who will be interviewing you.

8. You are then asked to check off which days you are available and think to yourself how you just want to be an adult already because who the hell wants to work on a weekend when you could be getting your tan on down the shore.

9. Luckily, you kill your interview and the manager asks you to come back again tomorrow for a follow up. You get so excited because Hello Money.

10. You get the job and you feel totally good about yourself because now you can buy yourself all of the things you want (even though most of it will probably ending up going toward food and alcohol, but whatever).

11. You finally start your first day of work and you think to yourself how lovely it would be if you could get paid to binge watch Netflix all day because in reality that is what you would rather be doing.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
