12 Things My Dad Said When I Took Him To A Frat Party
Macie McCallum

This past weekend was family weekend at IU and a large group of my friends all invited our dads down to visit us. My dad stayed with my roommate's dad in an Airbnb and let's just say they enjoyed reliving their college days, to say the least. Friday night we all took our dads to a frat party — bold move I know. Here are just a few of the things that happened when he experienced a taste of what I do every weekend...

"Isn't there cold beer anywhere around here?"

You mean you're not used to drinking warm Natty Lights, dad?

"Let's play flippy cup!"

One thing I will give him is that my dad knows how to get a party started.

"Hi, I'm Macie's dad. Macie is my little pumpkin."

Nothing a dad loves more than bragging about his little girl... even to frat boys.

"What dirt can you give me on my daughter's boyfriend?"

This one was said more than I would have liked. Don't worry though, he didn't find any dirt.

"This guy is awesome! Whatever girl gets to marry him is a lucky lady!"

— My dad after every meeting every one of my friends. Trying to marry me off? I can't keep up.

"Play some Zac Brown Band!"

Dad was not a fan of Mo Bamba.

"I should have joined a fraternity in college..."

My dad was not one for Greek life in his day, but after experiencing it firsthand he was starting to think he might have made a mistake.

"Can we go home yet?"

Don't let him fool you, he was loving it. The social butterfly that he is, stayed out until 2 a.m. and even went home and stayed up until 3 a.m. with his roommate.

"I am HURTING this morning"

Least to say, Saturday morning he was not feeling as great as the night before.

"Should I call the 'Yuber'?"

My dad thinks it's funny to mispronounce words. He also just learned how to use Uber this weekend.

"Do we have to go out tonight?"

And after a long day of tailgating the next day, we hit the hay at 10:30 Saturday night. One night was enough for him, and for me too in my old age.

"I had the best time ever this weekend."

Frat party at Indiana University.

A weekend of reliving the glory days is never a weekend wasted. We had the best time everywhere we went. Dad's weekend is always one of my personal favorites. Time to start rallying for next year, dad!

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!

It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
