Go Greek!!!!!

Never in my entire life would I have ever thought that I would be in a sorority. This past year, I went through fall recruitment and let me tell you something I wouldn't change a thing. Being the first one in my family to ever join a sorority or to go to a college far away from my parents, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I know every girl says this but I love my chapter with all my heart and I'm so glad that I have them in my life!!!! So here are five reasons why you should go Greek!

1. Forever Friends

Aside from being sisters, I have met so many amazing and wonderful women that will literally be my forever friends. Joining a sorority gives you a chance to meet girls that you might've been too shy to talk to in the first place or to meet people outside of your chapter. With that being said, going Greek will bring you out of your comfort zone and allow you to meet people and make friends with so many people!!!

2. Brings You Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Like I said before, going Greek will help bring you out of your comfort zone. Your sisters will push you to do your best and motivate you to do things you probably wouldn't have done before. Without the help of my sisters, I probably wouldn't have run for an exec position. I'm so thankful for each and every one of them because they allowed me to become an even better version of myself.

3. Connections, Connections, and Connections

Aside from being in a sisterhood, there are so many connections that going Greek allows you to have. Who knows one of your sisters might know of a job opening and get you connected to the manager to get that job! Everyone genuinely wants to help each other and that's why you should go Greek, to find girls that are genuinely friendly and want to help you out!!!!

4. Raising Money For A Great Cause

Going Greek allows you to raise money for your philanthropy or for other organizations. This past year, I was a part of an AMAZING organization, Charleston Miracle, that raised a total of $115,678.54. Everything leading up to Dance Marathon might have been crazy but let me tell you it was an experience that I will never forget. Going Greek allows you to take part in these amazing experiences and it gives you a different look at life!!! #FTK

5. Fun Events

Okay so even though school might be very stressful, going Greek allows you take part in some fun events that your sorority might have. The amount of sisterhood events or social events that you can take part in is AMAZING. I am so excited for this semester because ya homegirl has some fun sisterhood event for you ladies at Alpha Kappa. Not only are they fun but, they allow you to create a bond with a sister that you never talked to before!

Now I know going Greek might not be for everyone but, if you do expect these things and even more. I am so excited to be reunited with the ladies at Alpha Kappa and I can't wait to recruit some amazing ladies!!!!!!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
