An Open Letter To the Outgoing SGA Officers

You rock, never change.

On Tuesday, our new Student Government Association Officers will take their oaths and officially become the next student representatives for our amazing university. It is kind of sad that we will not get the amazing chance for another year with them, but I know that the new ones will do amazingly. Before the old ones departed, however, I thought I would write a little something. Enjoy!

Caroline,

I am so glad that you were our president. Not only did you have a passionate love of Southern Miss, but you have a way with making people feel that they are important. You have had a large impact on my life, and I know that your impact on Southern Miss will forever be felt. While I am sad to see you go, I really do hope to get another chance to work with you in the future. I mean, as pastor's kids, we need to stick together, am I right? Thank you for being one of my biggest cheerleaders as I navigated the new world of being an English major. I know that I can sometimes be a lot to deal with, but you never made it seem like I was. Love you!

Franky,

You must be given some sort of accolade for having dealt with me for the past two years. It has been awesome to watch you go from our Freshman Associates director to our Treasurer. Thank you for seeing all of our ideas. While we may not be getting our Founder's Fest, at least we can say that we had an amazing year as Philanthrophy Commission. I hope that you continue to be involved with SGA in the future!

Christen,

Bless your sweet soul for choosing me for Election Commission. I know that I can sometimes be a lot to handle and deal with, but if you were annoyed, I really could not tell. I hope that you know that all of our Election Commission and what it was would not have been made possible without you (and Shelby). Thank you for putting up with me, my tardiness to meetings, and never making me feel like I was not important. Do not forget to slay very hard in the future. With yours being so bright, however, you just might need a pair of Ray Bans.

Jesse,

As sad as it may be, I did not get to know you all that well. However, from what I heard, you were the Joe Biden of Vice Presidents. I know that it has to be a bit painful for you to have lost the recent election, but have no fear, you will slay at whatever you do. You're not leavig, just defying gravity! (Was that reference not Wickedly awesome or what?)

Autumn,

I did not really get to know you that well, but I know that you are a Cubs fan. It's a big deal to celebrate your graduation, but still, winning the World Series was pretty amazing, right? #GoCubsGo

If South Carolina Colleges Were Characters From 'The Office'

Who's Jim and who's Meredith?

"The Office" is one of the best shows on the face of the planet. Don't believe me, you obviously haven't watched it. It has a character for everything, including all of the South Carolina colleges.

The Citadel

This one is probably the easiest. Creed Bratton. Hands down. Military all day every day. No one knows what really goes on behind closed doors, except the people there. Just like Creed's mind.

Coastal Carolina University

Consistently voted one of the top party schools in the nation. #It'snotcollegeit'sCoastal.

Winthrop University

Winthrop is the place for future teachers. We all know that Meredith is the mother/teacher figure in the office, which is kind of scary in and of itself.

Columbia College

Erin just seems like the type of person who would go to an all-female college.

Bob Jones University

At what other school do you see people wearing things that could be from the American Girl large colonial dolls Spring line?

Wofford College

The pearls, Greek Life, and Southern fashion are so real.

Furman University

Let's be real. Pam is a bit of a nerd. But at the end of the day, she does know how to get down. I mean she WAS on the party planning committee. And who doesn't want that Ring By Spring?

College of Charleston

Nard Dog is definitely in an a capella group in Charleston, taking in the city and the history while dressing like a frat star.

Medical University of South Carolina

Andy isn't alone in Charleston. Dwight is down there becoming a doctor. Yes, someone who can save lives and is able to do surgery. Although, who else would you expect to be a doctor?

University of South Carolina

There would be no South Carolina without the University of South Carolina. There would be no office without Michael Scott. The later seasons prove it. They're large and in charge.

Clemson University

While Michael thinks that he runs the office, it's no secret that Jim is the mastermind behind the operation. The office would fall apart without him. I'll just let that sit.

Even After Family Weekend, I Haven't Gotten Homesick And I'm Not Ashamed Of It

It's really OK.

Now that we have successfully drifted into October, I am about a month and a half into my freshman year of college.

As the leaves on the trees start to change colors and the skies start fading to grey, Family Weekend rolls around. As a preface, I used to live in Connecticut. I think it's safe to say I still #BleedBlue even after living in South Carolina for my high school career. Regardless, it's safe to say me attending the University of Connecticut is a little ways away from my parents and cats.

That being said, the last time I saw my mom and dad was move in day. Exactly six weeks without seeing my dad or giving my mom a "huggie". I have been away from home before, for example I went to Ireland and Scotland this summer for a week with a teacher from school and a few other kids that went to my high school.

I don't miss high school and I enjoy living in a dorm with my amazing roommate and hanging out with people pretty much everyday and just doing my own thing, but it's weird not coming home and seeing my parents every night.

See, I can't describe this as home sickness, because I talk to my mom on a pretty consistent basis, she sends me pictures of my cats, and I just haven't had that cloud of sadness over my head because I miss home. Not to say I haven't been sad in college, stuff happens, but it hasn't been like what sooo many other people talk about it to be.

Even now, a few days after seeing my parents, I miss the people not the place. I'm not going to guilt trip myself over this either. I think it's healthier! It was super nice to hang out with my parents again. I got fed well and spent a night off campus for the first time since I got here. Another positive was not having to jump out of my bed the next morning or wear shower shoes while showering

I'm hoping while writing this, that the stereotypical home sickness doesn't catch up to me in the near future (preferably not at all).

Even just six weeks in, I feel like I have grown as a person and changed. I will say it was amazing to see my parents, but I'm glad I'm away from home being able to blossom into an educated young woman.
