Junior Year As Told By 'The Office'

Cheryl Nuzum

Freshman year got the best of all of us. Sophomore year we actually had some semblance of an idea of what we were doing. Junior year we realize we were only fooling ourselves. We may be a little wiser than we were back then, but we’re no better off.
Now we’re stuck in that in-between stage where it’s time to start growing up but we can’t bring ourselves to do it. Not to mention the fact that we have no idea how. A bunch of expected adults with no idea what they’re doing trying to make it through life? Sounds a little bit like this show we know…
When your parents really expect you to start acting like an adult

When you hear the word ‘internship’ every time you turn around



When the Real World actually starts to seem real



When you start to see the same people every day, every class – including the professors



When the new crop of freshmen seem like actual babies



When the new crop of freshmen also seem like actual idiots


When you finally get to start studying the stuff you’re interested in



When you start to consider changing your major as a junior . . .


. . . because now that you’re in your major classes, you realize you’re gonna actually have to do this crap the rest of your life.

When the old bars start getting overrun with newer people so you gotta find new bars with older people

When part of your squad start graduating off



When you have to fill out an Expected Graduation Date form



When you realize you’ve still got another year after this



When you realize you’ve still got another year after this
