Do You Dayge Or Darty?

The real college line is drawn between people who darty and people who dayge.

Do You Dayge Or Darty?

My first week of Sophomore year of college has officially finished. Now nothing that exciting happened during this week besides new classes and finding out that biking to campus is a lot harder than it looks I realized that there is one difference between Arizona and Ohio, besides the heat, and that is daygers.

During my freshman year, I definitely went to my share of day parties conforming to the word used for them, calling them daygers. Dayger puts the words "day" and "rager" together as this is what I've learned people in Arizona only call them.

When I went home this summer I attended these so called "daygers." And when I called them a dayger not only was I actually yelled at but I was forced to correct my wording to what we call it as a "darty"-- combining the words "day" and "party."

After three months of being home, this word truly stuck with me and I became a firm believer in it and that the word dayger is high-key stupid. However, coming back to school dayger became the norm and when I used darty I was YELLED at by literally everyone.

My friends actually were [friendly] fighting over Snapchat about darty vs. dayger. I've probably heard every argument about which one is better or how one made sense or how the other doesn't.

Personally, I'm on the darty side. I think it just makes more sense-- day plus party equal darty. Dayger is day and rager and to be quite honest ragers remind me of high school parties in smelly basements wearing jerseys and spandex shorts (why was that even a thing?).

I do, in a way, see people argue when it comes to dayger. It's easier to say to someone, "Hey did you dayge this weekend?" than, "Pal did you go to a darty this weekend?". Maybe don't say "Pal..." – that might be the issue.

So the real question is, what do you think? Do you dayge or do you darty??? Let me know in this poll!

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.

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.
