11 Things that Happened To You In An A Cappella Group

Here's a little article for anyone who has ever been in an a cappella group! We know that "Pitch Perfect" is a scam and we know that we have what it takes to be on "The Sing-Off!" If you were in an a cappella group, you know these 11 things all too well!

1. You have a love/hate relationship with "Pitch Perfect."


Yes, it's like the greatest thing that has happened to a cappella since Pentatonix, but it's also ridiculously unrealistic!

2. If you’re a middle part, you live for singing that one note in the weird jazzy chord.


There is nothing more satisfying than nailing that chord.

3. You try really hard to dance even though you know you suck at it.


You wish that you could do all the cool flips, but you actually just look like you tripped over your own feet.

4. You’ve been accidentally spit on by your vocal percussionist.


And it felt just like this, but you smiled anyway because it was during a performance.

5. You’re pretentious enough to call your beat box a “vocal percussionist.”


Those people deserve respect...and a really snobbish title!

6. You secretly wish that you and your group could just make up perfect arrangements of songs on the spot.


How did they do that in "Pitch Perfect?!" (Hint: they didn't.)

7. Your group went (or tried to go) to a Pentatonix concert.


And it was beautiful. And you may or may not have cried.

8. Your favorite gigs were the ones that gave you free food.


Thank god for crappy pizza and individually wrapped cookies that you can smuggle into your bag!

9. You walk around campus humming your harmony to pop songs.


Even if it's not the melody, this song is so dang catchy!

10. You still listen to college a cappella groups (and you still maintain that yours is the best!).

Sure you cried when you first heard this rendition of "Chandelier" but, yeah, your group is totally better!

11. You couldn’t imagine singing with anyone else!

I don't know what I'd do with three extra hours in the week! I'd miss these goons to much! (And now for a shameless plug of the group I'm in! Check us out!!)

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

Have you ever found that one person in your life who you literally could not live without? You can talk to her about anything. She's the only person who will look you straight in the eyes and say, "You're stupid." You two can ride around or sit at your house for hours and always have something to talk about. You can be yourself without having to explain yourself because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

As human beings, there are just some things that seem to bring us all together with the same sense of irritation. Here are a few of those annoying things that make my list. I'm sure at least some, if not most, of them make yours as well. If you can think of any more relatable annoyances that I've missed, feel free to comment on this article and let me know!

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
