When did you start watching The Office?

I started watching The Office around the beginning of 2011. It took me just over a month to get through the then six and a half seasons that had aired, and my first episode that I was able to watch live was Garage Sale, one of my all time favourites.

What is your favorite episode and why?

That's a near impossible question. The Office has provided us with so many incredible moments that it's almost impossible to choose just one. Off the top of my head, Conflict Resolution, Booze Cruise, Casino Night, The Return, Dinner Party, Weight Loss, Stress Relief, Golden Ticket, Niagara, Garage Sale, Goodbye Michael, Dwight K. Schrute, (Acting) Manager, Customer Loyalty, Moving On, Promos, Livin' The Dream, A.A.R.M., and Finale.

Told you guys it was hard :)

Who is your favorite character and why?

My favourite character has to be Jim Halpert. His sarcastic demeanour, legendary faces at the camera, and his amazing personality are what get me. He and Pam are definitely the most awesome couple in TV history. I love them both to pieces.

Do you have a favorite moment for The Office?

Picking a favourite moment is tough, since there have been so many. In no particular order, Jim & Pam's first kiss, Jim & Dwight's conflict resolution session, Dwight's fire safety test, Michael's proposal, Jim & Pam's wedding, and Michael's return.

What's it like being an admin for The Office-isms?

Three words - Fun. Awesome. Rewarding.

... Merciless. Insatiable. (just kidding)

Really, being a part of the ISMS team is great. Everyone involved is extremely friendly, understanding, and committed to giving our fans the best content we can.

How has The Office changed your life?

It's made me believe that you can find love anywhere, even in a random office full of random people. Jim & Pam's moments really hit home for me too, because it really made me believe that true love is out there for all of us, and that you should never give up on the person you want to be with, no matter how dire the situation is.

Do you have any great memories associated with The Office?

My favourite memory of watching The Office is the fact that The Office really helped me find myself. Being able to relate to a group of people on TV was an all new experience for me, as I'd never been so attached to a TV show before The Office came in to my life. Memories from Jim & Pam's storyline, Michael finding himself and finally finding someone, Dwight finally becoming manager, and so many more will remain dear to my heart for years to come.

Is there anything you would like to add?

I want to thank Mandy for setting up these questions, Christine for being the best damn page manager the Internet has ever seen, and all of my fellow co-admins for being awesome. And most importantly, thank YOU for reading. Our fans are the best in the world, and we couldn't be happier to have you along for the ride with us.

Also, I recently moved in to residence at my university and one of my friends wrote this a week after I met her. She seems to know me pretty well.
