I Just Went Through Sorority Recruitment, And It Was The Most Terrifying Yet Exciting Thing Ever
Kate Tulenko

Disclaimer: this article is not meant to freak anyone out, it is a way for me to type away my feelings about the past couple days. The experience is different for everyone, so your rush experience will not go the exact way that mine did, and you may not have the same feelings that I did during the process.

I go to a small college and just went through recruitment, and it was great and scary all at the same time. You may be asking "Girl, what does that even mean???" so just hear me out.

Rush is stressful because not only are people judging you based off of one conversation they have with you, but you feel like you NEED these conversations to go well (which they do, but they'll go great without you stressing about them).

I learned that everyone going through recruitment is nervous, whether they are the ones asking questions or answering them.

It was really stressful because I had my heart set on this one sorority that EVERYONE I talked to LOVED and wanted to join. I kept thinking to myself "These people that want to join are so awesome, what if I'm not cool enough to be in it?" or "What if there are just better people than me that they want?"

Everyone kept saying how they thought they had great conversations at the different sororities but kept getting dropped from the ones they liked. This FREAKED ME OUT because I definitely didn't want this to happen to me (Honestly, who would?).

I thought that my conversations went well, so the fact that people thought the same thing and would get dropped made me think it was going to happen to me. Luckily, I never got dropped from the one I loved, and for that, I am incredibly thankful.

Though it was crazy and weird, I also had a really great time during rush. I love talking to people, so it was fun to get to know all kinds of girls that I never would have met if I didn't go through recruitment.

I met so many people that I am now super close with, which is a reason that I loved rush. And I know that thanks to this process, I am going to be friends with these people for the rest of my life.

And now, thanks to recruitment, I am a part of the best sorority ever with the best people in it. I have been a new member for a total of four days and I already love everyone and have met so many kind and genuine people, and I can't wait for the next four years!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
