25 Signs You Go To UW-Madison

Your red and white overalls are your most prized possession.

25 Signs You Go To UW-Madison
Mansion Hill Inn

1. You are incapable of having an 8:50 class yet willingly wake up at 6:30 AM to buy football and basketball season tickets.

2. No matter how many times you walk up Bascom Hill, you can’t help but die a little inside every time you look up at that beautiful monster.

3. Your red and white overalls are your most prized possession.

4. Game days are the best days. Plain and simple.

5. Jumping Around on Saturdays is your favorite college tradition.

6. You’ve ordered Ian’s mac and cheese pizza at 12AM multiple times.

And probably regretted it the next morning...but ate that leftover cold pizza for breakfast too.

7. You’ve walked to class in sweltering heat, rain storms, blizzards, and days that feel like -50 degrees.

8.) You’ve busted out shorts on a 40-degree day.

9. Freak Fest is the ultimate Halloween destination, even when it’s below zero.

10. You are very devoted to your library, whether it’s College or Memorial, you are a ride-or-die type.

11. You’ve dragged your butt to the Farmer’s Market just for all that cheese!!!!!!

12. You are more than willing to eat ice cream in the dead of winter because, well, it’s Babcock ice cream. How can you refuse?

13. You’ve definitely taken a crafty Instagram picture of the colorful Terrace chairs.

14. Speaking of The Terrace, is there anything more beautiful in the summer? Or the spring? Or the winter or the fall?

15. You make sure to stop and pet every dog you see on campus.

16. You’ve made your way up the Mifflin Street Block Party, rain or shine (and managed to get a fake-arrest picture with a cop.)

17. You weren't entirely sure how to do all of the cheers during your first official Badger game, but now you can cheer them in your sleep.

18. You get emotional when you sing along to Varsity

19. You are constantly fueling the Minnesota-Wisconsin football rivalry by asking every Minnesota fan whose held the Axe trophy the longest.

Wisconsin has for 13 years by the way, but who's counting?

20. You’re consistently amazed at Bucky’s dance moves, sass, and ability to crank out 100s of push-ups.

21. You try to avoid the SERF at 5:00 because there will be nothing open. NOTHING OPEN!

22. You’ve partied in a dirty Langdon Street Frat House basement.

Don’t be ashamed, we’ve all done it.

23.) You know how to work hard. UW-Madison is the 10th ranked public institution in the nation, and 44th ranked in the world, so be proud of yourself!

24.) You also know how to party. UW-Madison is ranked the Top Party School in the nation, so once again, be proud of yourself. :)

25.) You have unexplainable pride for your school. You couldn’t imagine spending these 4 years anywhere else.

"When you say Wisconsin, you’ve said it all!”

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
