'White Converse Turning Black,' And 4 Other Sacrifices UK Girls Make On A Caturday

The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Caturday. Arguably the best day of the week to be a Kentucky Wildcat, but with such a great day comes great responsibility and sacrifice. Caturdays are unique. They are unlike any other day of the week. They can be super fun and you'll go go go, but they can also be super blah and....well....end early. Depends on the day!

Caturdays are an adventure and you never know what you're gonna get which is what makes them such a fantastic time. Maybe you'll cheer on the cats at Kroger field, maybe you'll take a hike from your sorority house to Waller, or maybe you will babysit your friend and take a nice sit down break on the curb for a few. Without further adieu... 5 sacrifices most girls have made on one, or all Caturdays.

1. Waking up at 7 a.m. in order to look like the proper snack you are

looking hawt

Waking up at 7 a.m. is essential in order to not only A) be on time to the buttcrack of dawn tailgates, but B) look more than presentable. Caturday means whipping out either the tiny cloth material we like to call tube tops, blue rompers, or a jersey that basically touches our ankles.

2. Further destroying your grimy pair of brown converse


I think my converse started out white? To be honest, I'll never know and neither will you. It looks like I threw on my Converse and competed in a muddy wrestling competition, which is the equivalent of attending a single Caturday.

3. Sharing space and resources with out of control girls you've never seen before

who are you

Attending your favorite fraternity's events is all fun and games until Caturday rolls around. You'll get to spend time with your favorite boys, which is fantastic, but you'll also be forced to share space with 10,000 girls you have never seen before and wouldn't really care to see again. Sharing space and resources is what natural selection is all about, and the girls who don't know how to act are first to go.

4. Getting hella lost


Now, this can be the best and worst thing all at the same time. Sometimes you lose your happens! You may find yourself with a completely different group of girls than you came in with, a group of guys, or maybe even a budding love interest. Spicy!

5. Wasting money on football tickets for a game you will never make it to

walk in

Ahhhh a classic. I meannnnn I MIGHT pop in and show my face for .005 seconds. Who knows what the big man upstairs has in the cards for today!

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.
