I've never found a better home

10 Things My Sisters Have Taught Me

1. I need my sisters! Growing up as an only child has left me feeling confident on my own, but once I met these girls, I knew I could never imagine life without them.

2. Women are the strongest, most resilient people I’ve ever come across. The stories we’ve shared with each other are powerful and a great representation of why we joined a sorority in the first place; to get that ever-lasting support system.

3.There’s no reason not to be myself 100% of the time. It’s almost impossible to go through recruitment and initiation period without revealing your true self, and your sisters love you for it. I’ve never felt so loved while being myself.

4. My ideas and opinions matter. I’ve struggled with feeling overlooked and unheard by my peers, yet here every idea, every thought that pops into my head is heard and validated. It’s hard to describe a better feeling than knowing people care enough to pay attention to you.

5. It’s okay to cry of joy and sadness. Recruitment and initiation periods are stressful and full of emotions. I cried when I found out my sorority because I felt so strongly about their values and knew it was the place for me. I also cried during our retreat as I listened for over four hours to the amazing sisters around me share their life stories and hardships.

6. I love food even more than I thought possible! The amount of times you bond with sisters over food is crazy wonderful. I’ve never felt closer to my sisters than when I was sipping a latte and shoving a Nutella strawberry crepe into my mouth.

7. I am loved and wanted. It's impossible to walk around campus and not run into one of my sisters. They instantly brighten up my day and remind me that I am not forgotten. There's always someone looking to grab dinner or see a movie, and it's an amazing feeling to know that you're always welcome to join.

8. Not all sororities fit the stereotype. This was the biggest factor holding me back from rushing. I didn't want to be judged by others simply because I had joined a sorority. Now that I have my sisters, I couldn't imagine my life any other way. We built our relationships based on trust and honesty, not through terrible hazing or raging parties.

9. Go after your dreams. There's no better place to discover your passions than with a support system of 250 girls that always have your back. They were the ones that encouraged me to start my own design company and the reason it's still successful.

10. We're all good sisters!!! Shoutout to my AXiD babes and all sisters from every sorority supporting women.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
