10 things incoming freshmen shouldn't do to avoid being labeled as the Drunk Girl Everyone Stares At

Coming into a frat party, you are on thin ice.

To all my incoming freshmen, your welcome week behavior translate to how you will be the rest of the year, and let me tell you, it's not easy to make it out alive of welcome week. Newfound freedom leads many people to doing stupid things that will haunt them the rest of the year, so freshmen, here are a few things you should avoid doing to survive welcome week.

1. Don't makeout with the first guy that gives you attention

Because you're the incoming class, all of the guy's eyes will be on you. They're like vultures waiting for a prey. Don't get wrapped up in the first Brad you meet because I can promise you that the guys will talk about how easy you are after.

2. Don't makeout with anyone on elevated surfaces or populated areas

One of my biggest pet peeves is being on an elevated surface with my friends and then looking over my shoulder and seeing two people basically swallowing each other. You do not need to show off to everyone that you are getting action tonight. Take your man to a more secluded area to save my eyes from your nasty PDA.

3. Don't be the girl offering everyone shots

If you're the girl hanging around the bar looking for a group of people to take shots with, it's not going to end well for you honey. It's trashy to be downing shot after shot and they hit you faster than you would expect. Honestly, I would expect to see you over the toilet at the end of the night and no one wants their head in a smelly frat house bathroom.

4. Don't scream when your favorite song comes on

We know that any new summer poppy song is going to be played at the frat party to get everyone riled up, and we know that you probably learned all the words before you came to school, so you don't need to break our eardrums screaming to your friend that you love this song so much.

5. Don't be disrespectful

Coming into a frat party, you are on thin ice. The people who have been coming to this house for years have seniority over you. Don't forget that. There's no need to shove people out of the way or be rude to them just because you lost your friend at the bar. Ask politely to squeeze through and you won't get kicked out.

6. Don't pass out

One of the biggest things I can warn you about is to not go over your tolerance. I understand that some people are more experienced than others, but your're endangering not only your life but the lives of many. And its a big mood killer to have the cops show up to a frat party.

7. Don't take your clothes off

I know that frats get crowded very easily and they also get very hot, but do us all a favor and keep all articles of clothing on. Nudity is only allowed in private places and too much skin is extremely slutty.

8. Don't do "Rush Tits/Ass"

My father always told me he never wanted to see me on one of those "Barstool" accounts and hopefully your parents don't either. Rush Tits/Ass are the most regretful thing that you can do in college because once it's on the internet, it's never going away. Also, you may not know, but frats have private photo folders filled with images like that so those can really go anywhere the brothers want them to. Make the Brads wait to see it in private.

9. Don't brag about your past successes

Introductions at frat parties are hard, but please for the love of God, don't tell me about how you were a cheer captain in high school or how you dated the quarterback of your football team. It's the past and I don't care. Talk about what you are thinking about doing on campus.

10. Don't go home alone

The absolute number one rule in a woman's handbook is DON'T GO HOME ALONE! If all your friends have left with Brads and Chads, don't feel the need to find you one also. One in every four girls experience some type of sexual assault on a college campus and you do not want to be a number in that statistic. If you ever need someone to Uber home with you, go up to another girl and ask if you can join her ride or pay for her to ride with you back. It is better safe than sorry.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.

Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

8 Struggles Of Attending Miami University, NOT The University Of Miami

Love and honor.

When most people hear "Miami," they immediately picture palm trees, blue skies and warm beaches. This is definitely understandable as the only Miami most people know is Miami, Florida. In fact, until my junior year of high school, that was the only Miami that I knew. However, in a far-away land called Oxford, Ohio, amongst many cornfields and far from any palm trees or beaches, there's another Miami: Miami University. Filled with beautiful red brick buildings and open, grassy quads, Miami University is vastly different from University of Miami.

While being a student there is wonderful (it's obviously the best school), every MU student knows it can also be a struggle...

1. The disappointment of other people when they find out where you actually go to school. 

The minute people hear "Miami," their faces light up as they imagine Miami, Florida. However, as soon as they realize that you're talking about Ohio, not Florida, their faces drop and you no longer feel so special.

2. You have to remember to add on "of Ohio" at the end of Miami University whenever you tell people where you go to school. 

To further my last point, if you don't specify that you go to Miami University OF OHIO, they will automatically assume that you go to the University of Miami in Florida and will excitedly talk about how nice it must be to go to school in a place with such beautiful weather and beaches.

3. There are probably people who still think you go to school in Florida.

Relatives, friends, neighbors... Yep, most of them thought you were going to school in Florida at some point. Depending on how long you've been there, some still may, which makes for some awkward conversations at family reunions and neighborhood parties.

4. People wrote, "good luck at University of Miami" on your graduation cards.

Even if they know that you go to school in Ohio, many people still wrote this on your graduation cards, and they also write, "I hope you're having a great time at University of Miami" on your Facebook wall for your birthday. Because after all, they're basically the same, right? Wrong. But I guess it's the thought that counts.

5. Winter.

Despite your fierce loyalty to your school, when winter rolls around and you can't feel your face by the time you make the walk from one end of campus to the other, you find yourself wondering why you chose Miami University instead of University of Miami.

6. Explaining to everyone you meet why there's a school in Ohio called Miami.

No, Miami University has absolutely no affiliation to the University of Miami. It was named for the Miami Native Americans who resided in southwest Ohio.

7. When people ask you if you're *sure* that Miami University isn't in Florida.

Um, YES I'm sure. If Miami University was in Florida I can promise you that I would be a whole lot tanner than I am.

8. Trying to prove to people that Miami University is actually the original Miami.

After all, Miami University was founded in 1809 when Florida still belonged to Spain! Miami, Florida wasn't incorporated until 1896 and the University of Miami has only been around since 1925 (a whopping 116 years after Miami University was established!).

While, yes, I do sometimes ask myself why I go to school in Ohio instead of Florida, I love my Miami and wouldn't trade it for anything.
