'Why The Hell Are There So Many Stairs?' And 6 Other Thoughts I've Had Since Moving Into My Sorority House

Welcome home, welcome to the Chi O house.

Having the opportunity to live in the Chi O house this year has been the biggest blessing so far and exactly what I needed. Having quality girl time is something I've been lacking recently and living here is the perfect solution! I have only been here for a few days, but I already love it so much and can't wait until the school year starts and the rest of the fun begins. That being said, I have quickly come to the realization that the living situation I am in is very unique and something I have not experienced before. This setting and house itself has a lot of quirks and things that make it special, fun, and even a little dysfunctional. Here are 7 honest thoughts I've had since moving into the Chi O house.

1. Why the hell are there so many stairs?


No elevator, but a lot of stairs. Living on the second floor is cake, but third.... a whole ass hike. I am tired.

2. Are there really 76 boobs in this house?


A house full of females means a house filled to the top in estrogen, oh, and 76 boobs. Drake and Josh, the boobs, would fit in perfectly. Thanks, Megan!

3. How should I act with hundreds of snacks fully accessible at all hours of the day?


No grocery shopping? Candy, chips, cereal, carrots, hummus, yogurt, fruit, and everything else under the sun is within feet at all hours. The best part? We rarely have to spend our own money to attain a full tummy, and better yet we have meals prepared for us every afternoon and night! I cannot wait, but the gym can.

4. Do I really have to poop in this microscopic bathroom stall measuring 1'x1'?


I am not used to sharing space with anybody, so having to share literally everything is quite the adventure. The bathroom stalls are tiny and if you've got a stinky one coming, guess you'll have to bask in it until you're done and able to set yourself free from the hamster cage it is. Nasty? You're absolutely right.

5. Why does the AC in my room resemble something from the 1950s?


What is this strange box? How old is it? How does it work? When should I expect it to break and catch in flames?

6. Why is climbing the ladder up and down from my bed sooo physically taxing?


Have to pee in the middle of the night? Sucks. Dying of thirst right before you fall asleep? Too bad. Top bunk means once you're up, you're up. It's necessary to complete all nighttime routines before embarking on the trek to get to your bed and that is facts.

7. Why does sleeping in have to be an impossible task?


You can literally hear every single creak and peep made within these walls. If you're a light sleeper, you are out of luck on this one.

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.
