This Point In The Semester As Told By Michael Scott

It's a universal truth that at this point in the semester, college students have just about had it. If you're feeling the end of the semester stress and need a little pick me up, I encourage you to find some comedic relief through the one and only Michael Scott as he describes how the majority of us are feeling right now.

1. When you look at all of the material on your multiple study guides and realize how complex it actually is

2. When a classmate asks if the final is cumulative and your professor responds with, "of course it is, why would you think otherwise?"

3. When you're finally focusing on all of the work you need to get done and get a heartwarming notice from your bank account alerting you that your remaining balance is under $5.00

4. When you realize it's December and you're halfway done with yet another year of college and are one step closer to entering the real world

5. When your professor says that there will be no curve on the final under any circumstances whatsoever

6. When you're running on two hours of sleep from studying or finishing a paper and you're walking through your major department's building

7. When you realize that you have less than two weeks to get your academic life together

8. When you finally sit down to write that term paper you've been putting off for the entire semester and you're at a loss for words three sentences in

9. When the only thing that will make you feel better is eating ice cream for lunch and someone tries to question it

10. When you decide that anything other than getting your work done is exactly what you're going to do

11. When one of your professor's just refuses to recognize that you have four or five other classes to worry about

12. When you finally bring yourself to sit down and face the reality of all of the assignments, papers, and studying you have to complete in less than a week

13. When you read the first question on your final exam and realize that the odds are most definitely not going to be in your favor

14. When you think back on all of the time throughout the semester that you had to get done all of the work in front of you but you just chose not to

15. When you get a notification from Blackboard notifying you that your final grades have been posted

16 (featuring Dwight). When you realize that you made it through another week of finals and that Christmas break is finally here!

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
