Threat Level: Midnight

The office is a show stocked with life lessons.

Threat Level: Midnight

It’s pretty common to analyze why TV shows are watched. All over the Odyssey, you can find articles about what certain TV shows have taught them. One thing is the same with every one of these shows, secondary characters don’t get enough respect. So, for the little guys of TV, I present the five life lessons learned from the office’s secondary characters.

1.)Ryan- intelligence without ethics is useless.

Ryan is the hot shot business school employee who takes over as VP of Dunder Mifflin. He eventually crashes due to lack of work ethic and morals in general. Take it from Ryan, intelligence doesn’t always equal excellence.

2.) Stanley- How to truly love something.

Not what you expected? I dare you to think of one thing that someone loves more than Stanley loves pretzel day or cake or pie. Nice try but you can’t. If you need to learn how to love, Stanley is your guy.

3.) Creed- Ignorance is bliss.

Creed is my personal favorite of the office’s secondary characters. He is famous for his one liners that come out of nowhere and make everyone laugh. One running joke in the show is that no one knows what Creed’s job is. He can’t even pronounce it himself. Ignorance is bliss and creed is not short of either.

4.) Kevin- It’s important to have goals.

Kevin is seen as a dumb character on the office, however, I disagree. Kevin is a goal driven man. He knows his talents and priorities. You should be more like Kevin in the image below.

5.) Toby- absolutely nothing.

Toby is the worst. Toby teaches us nothing. Just ask Michael.

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.

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.
