13 Signs That You Are A True Central Michigan Chippewa

Classes start this week at Central Michigan, up at the Pleasant Mountain, and more often than not everyone is excited. It means that you are back with your friends in the place you love and call home. There is so much school spirit when you walk around the campus at CMU, but here are 13 of the signs that you are a true Chippewa:

1. You are way too excited over two words: pint night. It's a CMU tradition to never miss a single pint night, and you can say that with pride.

You could spend hours in the lib (most of the time it's because you have to) because it is the prettiest building on campus.

3. You have more blackboard notifications than actual notifications.

4. You never miss a chicken nacho day in the cafe. Never.

5. You have so many different names for 'Mt. pleasant.' My personal favorite is Mt. P. Short and sweet.

6. You kind of look forward to finals week because you know that means the therapy dogs are coming to campus.

7. There is no way in hell that you would ever miss a football game and tailgate (unless you have work, because being broke in college is a real thing).

8. You thrive off of the rivalry between Central and Western Michigan.

9. You also thrive off of all the fun Fall brings: Halloweekend, Cider, Apple picking and Uncle John's donuts. You seriously cannot contain your excitement.

10. Walking through campus during fall, when the leaves are changing, is almost an out of body experience for you. Central has got to have the most beautiful campus.

11. Almost all of your hard earned money goes towards CMU attire (or vodka).

12. You go to the sauna in the SAC in hopes that it will burn off the five cookies you ate from Insomnia, but you end up meeting a new friend because sauna friends are the best kind of friends.

13. You get so fired up about anything related to CMU because you love this school so much.

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
