An answer to the life-long question, "Where are the boys at?"

11 Places For Single People To Hang Out At SHSU

In today's day and age, dating is nearly impossible. Everybody has an agenda, and they are all attempting to play the game. You've tried Tinder, and letting your besties set you up, but it just isn't happening for you. It can be hard trying to meet someone new. Especially if your love life happens to resemble something similar to this:

Look, let's be honest and just admit it does. We don't have to be happy about it though! Take a deep breath. It's OK. We are all riders of the struggle bus. Boys are a mystery, and not in the cute and fun "Nancy Drew" kind of way, but more like the mystery and confusion that comes from trying to solve a calculus problem. Luckily, for all my beautiful Bearkats (and any and every other single girl in college), I've done the research (you're welcome), and here are 11 places on campus to meet your one and only.

1. The Smith-Hutson Business Building

While "business" is probably the most general and unassuming major of all time, it's a respectable one. Plus, this is basically a written guarantee that he'll have a big boy job. Also, every girl's crazy about a sharply dressed man.

2. The Newton-Gresham Library

Isn't it every girl's dream to get hit on in the library? He sees you through the shelves and is blown away by your sweet and subtle beauty...right?

3. The Rec Center

Obvi, the more muscular guys will be found in the rec center. So put on your workout pants and show him who's the man! Well, the Wo-Man.

4. The Dining Halls

After your extreme workout, you are going to be starving. Plus, boys love a girl with an appetite, right? So fill that plate! Pizza sandwich anyone?

5. Pritchett Field

After gorging yourself, you should probably walk some of that off. If you pass by Pritchett field, join one of the soccer games! Show off your A1 soccer skills. Shirts or skins?

6. The FieldHouse

If athletic guys are your type, hang out around the Fieldhouse. One has to walk out eventually, right? Plus, he'll be too worn out to say no. Jackpot!

7. The Book Store

School supplies are necessary in order to succeed. Head on down to the LSC and get yourself some! Tell your kids you met grabbing the same pack of pencils. *dreamy sigh*

8. Any Of The Computer Labs

Boys definitely need to study too. Creep around the lab and ask for help connecting a printer. Everybody wants to be needed, right?

9. The George J Beto CJ Center

Law enforcement is kind of a big deal around here, meaning you have a 97 percent chance of finding a hottie in there. Who can say no to a man in uniform?

10. The Lee Drain Building

The Lee Drain building is for you if you enjoy the doctor-y, science, nerdy type. Go get your very own personal McDreamy, girl!

11. The Mall Area

OK, in a last ditch attempt at meeting a cute boy, just pick one to stalk through the mall area. Sunglasses not mandatory, but possibly helpful.

I hope that this list was helpful. After a very single and very lonely V-day spent eating disgusting amounts of candy, and crying uncontrollably during your Rom-Com movie binge...use this list to get back in the saddle and boost your chances of love.... practice makes perfect, right?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
