10 Things Callaway House Residents Know Too Well

10 Things Callaway House Residents Know Too Well

We definitely complain, but there's nowhere else we'd rather spend our freshman year.

As freshman year flies by, it’s hard to believe we only have about two months left living in the Callaway House. While we complain about the food, the noise, and the rules, it’s really the last time we’ll ever live in such a tight knit community where we have the opportunity to meet someone new every time we’re in the lobby. With that being said, here are 10 things that the residents of the #3 best dorm in America all know and (sort of) love:

1. The frustration you feel when you have gone to all of the odd floors just to find that every single study room is occupied.

2. When every single time you really need to print something, the printer is jammed.

3. Almost totaling your car every single time you make a turn in the parking garage.

4. Not being able to tell the difference between a frat house and a Callaway elevator on a Thursday night.

5. That awkward knock you do from inside the stairwell when you're trying to get someone to let you onto the 16th or 17th floor.

6. When it’s almost March and people STILL try to walk past the security guard with guests after 10 pm and act clueless when they’re told they need to sign them in.

7. Getting consistently hungry at 8:15 every night just to get disappointed when you realize the dining hall is closed.

8. The excitement that comes with getting that ‘you’ve received a package’ text.

9. When the best part of the dining hall is the mints.

10. Knowing you live at the best place in west campus.

30 Things I'd Rather Be Than 'Pretty'

Because "pretty" is so overrated.

Nowadays, we put so much emphasis on our looks. We focus so much on the outside that we forget to really focus on what matters. I was inspired by a list that I found online of "Things I Would Rather Be Called Instead Of Pretty," so I made my own version. Here is a list of things that I would rather be than "pretty."

1. Captivating

I want one glance at me to completely steal your breath away.

2. Magnetic

I want people to feel drawn to me. I want something to be different about me that people recognize at first glance.

I want to be real. Vulnerable. Completely, genuinely myself.

4. Intoxicating

..and I want you addicted.

5. Humble

I want to recognize my abilities, but not be boastful or proud.

I want to stand out.

I want to give.

22. Pierian

From the way I move to the way I speak, I want to be poetic.

23. Esoteric

Do not mistake this. I do not want to be misunderstood. But rather I'd like to keep my circle small and close. I don't want to be an average, everyday person.

24. Authentic

I don't want anyone to ever question whether I am being genuine or telling the truth.
