7 Things I Learned About Cape From Visiting SEMO
Start writing a post

1. They like to party.

OK, I would honestly be dumb to say that I didn't know this before I went down there. Yes, there are people who care about school and grades there, but that doesn't mean that they can't have a good time while studying. Going to Cape was cool, but when we left it literally felt like the whole town was hungover on that Sunday morning.

2. They have a very strong Greek Life.

Greek Life seemed to dominate this town. You always see their sororities with the cutest bid day themes. Both the fraternities and the sororities seem to be extremely involved especially when it comes to stuff like Greek Week.

3. Burritoville is the GOAT.

Move over Qdoba and Chipotle. Seriously, these burritos blow every other burrito I've ever had out of the water. A buffalo chicken burrito? I bet your mouth just started watering, and that's not even the best one on the menu. If that doesn't sound amazing yet, they also have margs. You can pregame your pregame at this place while downing big burritos. That's the life.

4. Last Call is the place to be at night.

I know that there are other bars down there and I'm sure there are tons of house parties, but we walked around SEMO and asked people where we should go and every one of them said Last Call. They sure were right, too. The atmosphere totally fits what someone imagines their college experience to be like.

5. Oh, they also like to darty.

Darty, party. They do it all. Sure "every school has darties" but from what I hear about SEMO, they have darties literally whenever they feel like it. Oh, there's a raccoon stuck in the vent and classes are cancelled? Darty. Someone that you live with failed a test and is sad? Have a darty. You got a pet fish? Have a darty. You're bored? Darty. So many reasons to have a darty, and I look completely forward to visiting during this season.

5. It is a complete college town.

"Well, the older people hate us, because we don't really stop partying, but we kind of keep the town alive." Everywhere you go you see college students. Every single house looks like a college student should live in it. College things everywhere.

6. The campus is straight up confusing.

There. Are. So. Many. Hills. I thought that our car was going to flip going down to look at the Greek housing. It's also set up funny.

7. It literally does not matter what you wear to the bars.

I saw girls wearing sweatpants and girls wearing formal attire and people acted like it was completely normal. No judgment whatsoever. No one was talking about "how extra Sarah is because she is wearing heels to the bar." Everyone was just there to have a good time.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

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.
