Thoughts Of A Graduating Senior As Told By "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia"

It's that time of year. Spring break is over. Student are making their schedules for next semester and picking out their housing for next year. Everyone is pretending that finals aren't around the corner. Students are looking forward to summer break. However, there is one group that isn't experiencing much of this. These are the graduating seniors, and their emotions range from fear to confusion to dread and possibly even to excitement. Whatever thought that may go through their heads, there's a gif from "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" for that!

When you just aren't ready to be an adult yet.

Yes, hello. I would like to stay in the bubble that is college forever, please. Thank you.

When you realize you have to start paying off your loans soon.

"What'd you say?"

And you have no money to do so.

Oh, I wish.

So you have to get a job.


When the job hunt isn't going well so you have to come up with an idea that'll make millions.


When finals are right after Easter.

Thanks, Frank.

When you realize you have to see your adviser about something that might prevent you from graduating.

But so is everyone else and Carol doesn't exist.

But the end-of-the-year formals and banquets are coming up.

Me at Senior Bash.

When you realize you can't live in your on-campus apartment anymore.

I don't think I'll ever live this close to all of my friends or to where I need to be on daily basis ever again. And I won't live with the same roommates anymore. And I won't ever be able to afford a view of both the city of Los Angeles AND the ocean. I'm not ready to leave this apartment.

When graduation keeps getting closer and closer...

...and closer and closer and closer and closer.

And you have one last celebration with your friends.

"Might you say we're getting 'hammered'?"

When your parents are coming to see you graduate and you hope you don't have to cook for them.

This is what it's going to look like.

But when they arrive it's an instant celebration!

Party time!

Spotting your friends during the graduation ceremony.

I'll miss ya, buddy.

When you finally walk across the stage at graduation.

After all, this is the whole reason you went to college in the first place. Congratulations to the class of 2017!

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.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). 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.

I never considered myself a cat person, but Chess immediately stole my heart.

Madelyn Darbonne

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
