There's no doubt about it, there are some really weird Southern belle things you just have to adjust to, but once you do you'll be sure to love it. If you are a Northern girl who joined a Southern sorority, you could definitely relate.

1. You were uninformed about the strict dress code of norts (Nike shorts) and oversized pocket-tees.

And you were completely appalled by it at first.

2. You’re absolutely ridiculed every time you integrate “y’all” into your vocabulary.

And you were probably in shock the first time it slipped into a sentence.

3. You’re one of the few girls that don’t have everything they own monogrammed.

4. You will probably never understand the Lily Pulitzer craze.

5. You’ve become weirdly drawn to southern accents.

Oh, Matthew McConaughey, we all love you.

6. Your accent is the core of a lot of jokes.

“Say coffee, now say dog, now say water… yup, definitely a Yankee.”

7. You over use southern slang.

Especially, shack/shacker.

8. You’re constantly finding boys to kill cockroaches that end up in your dorm.

We certainly don’t have those monstrous creatures in the north.

9. You had no idea how to paint your first formal cooler.

Remember, it’s what’s on the inside that counts.

10. You didn’t know the importance of glitter

Putting some on your face before a party is totally srat.

11. You’ve learned to love country music.

Well, kind of.

12. You’re constantly on the search for a good salon that offers keratin or some other hair treatment.

I mean really with this humidity!

13. The beauty of your house takes your breath away every time you pass by.

Nothing compares to the beauty of an old southern mansion.

14. You started drinking Jack Daniels.

15. Your friends back home jokingly call you a Southern Belle.

And you totally feel like Allie from "The Notebook" when they do.

16. You’ve had to seriously invest in game-day dresses and cowboy boots.

No more ripped jeans, Timberlands and cute tailgate tees.

17. You totally underestimated the intensity of formal recruitment.

18. You never thought you could appreciate fast food chains as much as you do.

Seriously, your obsession with Chick-Fil-A and Raising Caine’s is getting out of control.

19. You adore peoples’ ranch stories.

And you try to relate them to your beach house stories.

20. You were extremely underprepared for all the themed parties and the costumes that go along with them.

Seriously, it's like every weekend is Halloween!

21. You never want to go back to the frigid north.

People and the weather are just not as nice up there.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

Wikimedia Commons

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
