9 'Insecure' GIFs We Could All Relate to This Semester

For most of us college students nationwide, fall semester is finally (or almost) over. No more assignments or exams — at least, not until after we bring in the new year. The stress of the semester is finally lifted and we can’t wait to spend a few weeks away from school. If you haven’t heard of it already, Insecure is an up-and-coming TV show that features Issa Rae; a hilariously awkward, black twenty-something who’s just trying to figure herself out alongside her closest friends. Looking back on Fall 2017, these are some Insecure GIFs that we could all relate to during our most cringe-worthy and celebratory moments of the semester:

1. When you had to force yourself to go to your 8 a.m. class.

You were up late watching YouTube videos or scrolling through Twitter and immediately regretted everything when your alarm went off in the morning. At this point, you used all of your free unexcused absences (dang!), so you had no choice but to go. You had to give yourself a pep talk just to gain the motivation to step outside.

2. When you got to class and everyone sitting around you was talking about an assignment due today that you didn’t know about.

3. Your bank account @ you:

We’re all struggling out here.

4. When you had a test the next morning, but you made plans to go out with friends anyway.

5. Later that night:

No regrets.

6. When you actually tried to look decent for class by not wearing pajamas for once.

Gold star for you!

7. When somebody took your unassigned-assigned seat.

The disrespect.

8. When you woke up to an email saying that class got canceled.

Best. Feeling. Ever.

9. When you turned your assignment in at 11:58 p.m. this time instead of at 11:59 p.m.

Yet another gold star.

This semester was nothing short of a rollercoaster, as accurately represented by these Insecure moments. Thankfully, we can put the past behind us and enjoy a long, relaxing winter break without the stress of college and start fresh in the spring!
