In life we have a lot to be thankful for. I honestly never thought I would be thankful of my high school. I would give anything to go back. Going to Assumption High School has given me so many different opportunities and has made me a better person. If you went to the greatest high school on the nation, you will know these exact reasons why I love Assumption.


1. The Walk

Every year we would walk to raise money for financial aid. The freshman sleepover was the moment a lot of us made our first friends. Having an entire school day where you get to dress up with your best friends and walk around the surrounding neighborhood for a good cause is one of the best feelings ever. Considering that night would always be the St X/Trinity game.

2. Our Many State Championships

One thing at Assumption we are known for is our athletics. I don't think in my 4 years at Assumption we did not have at least one team win a state championship. The volleyball team and cross country team always killed the athletics game.

3. Our Mercy Heritage

Celebrating Catherine McAuley is one way to connect back to the Mercy roots that we owe our school to.

4. Pep Rally

The Pep Rallies were the most exciting time of each sport season. The winter sports pep rally was the best because it was homecoming time and spirit competitions between the classes. The seniors also had fly girls, which we knew the class of 2014 had the best performance ever, no lie.

5. Rose Theatre

Having one of the best theatre programs in the state is pretty awesome, and the performances were always incredible. Being in RTC was one of the best experiences of my life, and I am so happy to be a part of that family.

6. Spring Break Talks

In college, it is weird if our teacher doesn't give us spring break talks. Mrs. Joaquin and Mrs. Bozio's talks were legendary, saying how you shouldn't mix the different zones on your body, or talking about STDs.

7. Retreat

Retreat was some of the best memories of my time at Assumption. Whether it was leading a retreat or going on retreat, it was a time you connected with yourself or your classmates. Senior retreat will forever live on as we learned how to live the fourth. The song "The Rose" will forever have a special meaning to us, and we will forever cherish Mount St. Francis.


8. ACTS

During sophomore year, we all got to go out into the community and serve our community. I went to South Louisville Community Ministries, where I helped out the elderly and adults with special needs. It was one of the most eye opening experiences I could have gotten. Honestly, who also could forget those ACTS pants?

9. Mission Week

Another moment of the service opportunities we were able to go through. Different grades got to do different things, RTC went to do Bloom Theatre, or seniors got to go on retreat. Taking a whole week off of classes to do service and help the community was really worth while.

10. Christian Life Choices

Who could forget Ms. Ralph and the best class I could have ever taken at Assumption. I think a lot of us still have our Life Choices binder, and we look at it when we need to be reminded of something.

11. Pink and White Game

Where the boys dance at half time, and the girls play the football. Both AHS and SHA raise a good amount of money every year to go to breast cancer research, but we all know who the better team is. #TeamPink

12. Senior Prom

Senior prom was honestly the best dance we ever could have gone to at Assumption. Dancing the night away with your best friends, making unforgettable memories, that is what prom is all about.

13. The Pre-Flik Lunch

Can they please bring back taco wedges and 4 cheese pizza? That stuff was the bomb, and even in college I dream about eating food like that again.

14. Family Program

Just like the house system in Harry Potter, we had families of different girls from each class, and different competitions were held. Who can forget the classic chant "Birr, it's cold in here?" or the Kingstown hand sign of the crown?

15. Senior Honors/Baccalaureate Mass/Graduation

The senior tri-fecta was some of the most touching and spiritual moments that fully closed out our time at Assumption. With senior honors celebrating our academic achievements, Baccalaureate Mass closing out the spiritual side to it all, and the final moment of graduation going full circle and propelling us into the real world.

If Taylor Swift Songs Were Types Of Alcohol

Because what's better than a drink and some T-Swift?
16097

With Taylor Swift's quick return to the music scene... and in a big way, might I add, I decided to associate some of the best Taylor Swift songs with alcohol.

I mean, who wouldn't want to drink to Taylor Swift's catchy melodies and perfect choruses to get over an ex or tell someone exactly how you feel about them?

Taylor Swift has been around for a decade at this point, and let's face it, pretty much all of her songs could go along with at least one type of alcohol.

1. "Welcome To New York" - Moscow Mule

It only makes sense. Visit the Big Apple and you have to indulge in the state's signature cocktail. Moscow mules are a New York classic, and if it's your first night in the city and you haven't bought yourself one, are you even in New York?

2. "Blank Space" - Everclear

Think about it... A night of drinking Everclear will leave you with a giant blank space the next day. You might also look like Taylor did in the music video.

3. "Tim McGraw" - Beer

Tim McGraw is a throwback to Taylor's high school love. What better way to reminisce than with a couple friends and a keg of your favorite cheap beer?

4. "Style" - Cristal Champagne

What's more stylish than with a glass of the most expensive bubbly you can find? Just like Taylor Swift, Cristal will never go out of style.

5. "Shake It Off" - Martini

Get it? Cause you shake a martini? I might be the only one who thinks that's funny but you might end up dancing a little bit with a martini in hand when "Shake It Off" come on the radio.

6. "Red" - Merlot


Red has to go along with a red wine. What else could go along with yet *another* T-Swift breakup song?

7. "22" - Margaritas

Let's face it, when you're 22, you really only drink margaritas. They're fun- and all the hipsters are probably drinking them too.

8. "Teardrops On My Guitar" - Southern Comfort

When your heart is broken, who are you going to turn to besides the only alcohol that gives you comfort...Southern Comfort that is.

9. "I Knew You Were Trouble" - Fireball

I can't say I've ever met anyone who spent a night with Fireball and didn't regret it the next morning.

10. "Look What You Mad Me Do" - Tequila

T-Swift's latest single is an angry one. What better to make you angry than tequila? Taylor basically just called out everyone who had ever talked about her behind her back and she did it in true Taylor fashion-by writing a song. She was probably drunk on tequila when she wrote it too.

11. ...Ready For It? - Bottomless Mimosas

Because it's just that good.

Which Guest Cameo Are You From The 'thank u, next' Music Video, Based On Your Zodiac Sign?

Are you more of a Kris Jenner or Miranda Sings?

1043
views

Ariana's most recent single "thank u, next" has had everyone shook since she released it out of nowhere. Not only is the song an anthem, but the message behind the lyrics are empowering for girls everywhere who have been through a tough heartbreak.

After the song's release, none of us thought that the music video would go to this iconic level, but then the previews for the music video came out, and we were wrong. I loved all of the different references to some of my favorite rom-com movies, but my absolute favorite was seeing all of the different guest stars that Ari included in the video.

If you're wondering which guest cameo you're most like, here's what your zodiac says about you:

Sagittarius - Stephanie Drummond

Kind of like Stephanie, aka the "army pants and flip flops" girl from Mean Girls, Sagittarius' are very straightforward and won't hold back from telling something to someone. They're also very enthusiastic about certain things and curious to try something new, which makes them super unique.

Capricorn - Daniella Monet

Capricorns are smart, hard-working, and fully in control over your life, just like Daniella. There are times where they might stress themselves out to the max to make sure everything is perfect, but they're confident what they want and are determined to achieve that goal.

Aquarius - Elizabeth Gillies

Aquarius' are always fun with friends, which is just like Liz Gillies and her friendship with Ari. They're also good listeners and always willing to help others, as well as fight for causes that are important to them.

Pisces - Troye Sivan

Pisces are very creative and imaginative, just like Troye. These people aspire to achieve emotional and spiritual harmony, which can be easily seen from their generosity and compassion for others. However, they also sometimes value dedicating time for themselves to recharge, which is never a bad thing.

Aries - Gabi DeMartino

As an Aries, these people walk with confidence and determination and are true-born leaders. This means that they also have no problem with being honest or assertive and that they simply have no time for anyone else's BS.

Taurus - Jonathan Bennett

Just like Jonathan Bennett, who's best known for playing teenage heartthrob Aaron Samuels in Mean Girls, taurus' extremely reliable and trustworthy. They want everything around them and in their life to be simple, which might not always be easy, but Taurus' are also known for their patience.

Gemini - Miranda Sings

Geminis tend to be very expressive people, which is just like Miranda Sings (aka Colleen Bellinger). They might have a bad rep, but they're also very curious, versatile, and affectionate.

Cancer - Ariana

As Cancer signs, these people are very sweet, have an intuitive side, and are kind to everyone around them, even if they're just a stranger, which is just like Ariana. Other signs might think that these people are just simply cute, but appearances are misleading and there's definitely more to this sign than being cute, such as being an imaginative person and a loyal friend.

Leo - Matt Bennett

Leos are known for being warm-hearted and cheerful people, just like Ari's best friend Matt Bennett. They're also very humorous and goofy and are the people that can help cheer anyone else up who needs it.

Virgo - Kris Jenner

Virgos are known for their strong loyalty and hard work they put into everything they do, which is just like Kris Jenner as the "mom-ager" for her kids. They're also very intelligent and analytical, and are dedicated to making sure that everything is perfect.

Libra - Jennifer Coolidge

Just like Jennifer Coolidge's role in the music video (and Legally Blonde), Libras are extremely compassionate and understanding with everyone around them. They are also in a constant search for peace and fairness, which is why they also tend to be fair-minded.

12. Scorpio - Bruiser

Last but not least, Scorpios are well known for being resourceful and passionate about what they do. There are times where they can be a bit stubborn, but at the end of the day, they're also known for being a true friend, or in this case, like a Bruiser to Elle Woods.
