The Sophomore Slump As Told By Kanye West
tumblr

Ahh, the Sophomore Slump. After experiencing the most insane, yet amazing, Freshman year, who would have never thought that the Sophomore Slump could possibly become existent. Although we have only completed one year, I think that we can all vouch that college will be by far the best years of our lives.

Although this is a true fact, there are some downsides of college that have recently decided to hit us all at once during our sophomore year. To thoroughly express this painful Sophomore Slump we are facing, who else is a better candidate than Kanye West to express our emotions? Thus, if you can agree relate, here is the Sophomore Slump as told by the infamous Kanye West.

1.) Your advisors tell you that you need to figure out your major soon *and tears fill your eyes.*

2.) You schedule your day accordingly to fit in as many naps as possible.

3.) Although your schoolwork seems to be getting harder and harder, you continuously take a little bit too many L's.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F17%2F636096747351183052-2008870063_tumblr_lgo8qwa4PY1qd9x6to1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=753&h=e3d157f43d6a933b60a050695edd01e5e5652f93bece6f362758cbdb027ecfae&size=980x&c=3503621363 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F17%252F636096747351183052-2008870063_tumblr_lgo8qwa4PY1qd9x6to1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D753%26h%3De3d157f43d6a933b60a050695edd01e5e5652f93bece6f362758cbdb027ecfae%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3503621363%22%7D" expand=1]

4.) You wonder how so many people have their lives together (considering yours is in shambles.)

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F17%2F636096761388064189747778669_giphy%25208.53.55%2520PM.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=27&h=320f116e58a4f4d5f8e2e0d55b5445a4d0e4f065c42bb1e0b09389e7317c9eae&size=980x&c=4200294541 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F17%252F636096761388064189747778669_giphy%2525208.53.55%252520PM.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D27%26h%3D320f116e58a4f4d5f8e2e0d55b5445a4d0e4f065c42bb1e0b09389e7317c9eae%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4200294541%22%7D" expand=1]

5.) You're willing to do anything to get out of your responsibilities and priorities.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F17%2F636096753259490064-727427981_kanye-dance-3.nocrop.w529.h554.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=387&h=2b16f9013343d1687ccab07957250d8822cbabeceae913f1a67f7e106d716e82&size=980x&c=1282123687 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F17%252F636096753259490064-727427981_kanye-dance-3.nocrop.w529.h554.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D387%26h%3D2b16f9013343d1687ccab07957250d8822cbabeceae913f1a67f7e106d716e82%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1282123687%22%7D" expand=1]

6.) Your eating and drinking habits are becoming extremely concerning (but you learn to accept it.)

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F17%2F636096751519898272778353607_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=310&h=0d917e597d3b22a0cda8a3d5bc6922cbe3b3408ce42d1be661d7b1969aa6107a&size=980x&c=842404883 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F17%252F636096751519898272778353607_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D310%26h%3D0d917e597d3b22a0cda8a3d5bc6922cbe3b3408ce42d1be661d7b1969aa6107a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D842404883%22%7D" expand=1]

7.) You change your mind about your major and your future just about every other day and start to have a panic attack.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F17%2F636096746938028270696771472_kanye-west-3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=541&h=c39c6c793d41538ace9b9c7f26560e05744f5142cbbb6e90b5babaca33e6c9be&size=980x&c=518750902 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F17%252F636096746938028270696771472_kanye-west-3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D541%26h%3Dc39c6c793d41538ace9b9c7f26560e05744f5142cbbb6e90b5babaca33e6c9be%26size%3D980x%26c%3D518750902%22%7D" expand=1]

8.) You joke around about dropping out, but there have been plenty of times where you truly contemplate it.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F17%2F636096702772193702-2108327496_kanyeshruggif2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=5&h=924c60ac84e2f4e956c84b0af9b7e656afa97f2c8bea707a60d3460be3ad5e2a&size=980x&c=3475374728 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F17%252F636096702772193702-2108327496_kanyeshruggif2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D5%26h%3D924c60ac84e2f4e956c84b0af9b7e656afa97f2c8bea707a60d3460be3ad5e2a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3475374728%22%7D" expand=1]

9.) You often times find yourself getting emotional as you reminisce on your Freshman year where you once felt so care-free.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F17%2F636096749066535138-1932523103_1290165886_rsd4rn.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=692&h=e8f167b113a819d850dde3b8bcaeac51477c86ab5a5b5e7e282ec01325ff1ce5&size=980x&c=1620224265 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F17%252F636096749066535138-1932523103_1290165886_rsd4rn.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D692%26h%3De8f167b113a819d850dde3b8bcaeac51477c86ab5a5b5e7e282ec01325ff1ce5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1620224265%22%7D" expand=1]

10.) You have multiple mental breakdowns everyday.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F17%2F6360967410081384761710220056_ea49c6b4b6cde8a94c46ab571714b2e27cfd6fd0.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=193&h=026c59a2ca56fa78c8163a8d29dedc43a427279deb5d5e5c1e51f1a2070979f2&size=980x&c=2716079347 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F17%252F6360967410081384761710220056_ea49c6b4b6cde8a94c46ab571714b2e27cfd6fd0.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D193%26h%3D026c59a2ca56fa78c8163a8d29dedc43a427279deb5d5e5c1e51f1a2070979f2%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2716079347%22%7D" expand=1]

11.) And by the end of the week, when you should be focusing on your responsibilities instead, you effortlessly make time to go out.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
