Frateo And Sororiet

Frateo And Sororiet

While this title is a take-off on the world-renowned characters, Romeo and Juliet,  in no way does this piece compare to their disgustingly, beautiful romantic and notorious love affair. 

You see, Romeo and Juliet are fictitious characters who endured enormously passionate adoration for each other in a time when rebelling against their parents was seen as absurd and becoming suicidal in the name of love seemed normal. Of course, only the brilliant brain of William Shakespeare would have created such a story. 

On the other hand, Frateo and Soroiet are the typical college fratstar dating the typical college sorority babe in their typical Greek life community. So typical, it seems 8 out of ten times, if you asked Mr. Alpha Beta Gamma who he was dating, he would probably say Ms. Kappa Phi Delta. And vice versa. In such a tight knit community, it’s hard not to date the girls from the sorority house next door. You constantly bump into each other at socials, Sparty on together at tailgates, see each other at philanthropy events, embarrass yourself at Greek Week dance practices, etc. You might as well car pool and spark that fiery candle of love while you’re at it. 

As I am dating my very own Frateo, I will share with you the secrets of how he landed such a cool chick. ......All right, girls, I will also share how I landed such a stud. Let's start with the boys. first.                                  

For all the hopelessly romantic Frateos out there, here are five steps for catching the eye of a sorority girl and, hopefully, snagging a date with her!      

1. Don’t be the typical jerk face frat douche. Be nice to her and treat her like the lady she is.      

2. Don’t keep her locked away in your frat castle; show her off to the world.  As cool as she may seem, no girl wants to spend all day, everday, in a smelly, boy infested place with all your bros.     

3. Take her out on fun, spontaneous dates. You may not be the real Romeo and Juliet, but you can at least pretend like the two of you are.    

4. When you’re with her, don’t text other girls. Show interest and pay attention to her needs. She’s not just one of the brothers you can brush off until later, and she will definitely appreciate a guy who cares about her over a guy that acts like she’s just another notch on his bedpost.     

5. Be cool. Don’t try too hard, but don’t act too cool for school, either. A girl likes a guy she can have fun with, be comfortable with and feel like she can be herself. Calm, cool and collected is the way to go.     

Alright, ladies, your turn. Here are the five steps to land that fratstar.   

1. Give him space. Don’t be that annoying, whiny girl who gets frustrated when he chooses his brothers over you after you have spent 24/7 with your man.    

2. Bring your sisters over when you come to party. His brothers will appreciate it, and he will appreciate it because his bros will stop nagging him about being wifed up and everyone will think you’re the bomb.      

3. Jealousy doesn't look good on anyone. He will talk to other girls at socials. Chill out and be the cool chick he brags to his friends about.     

4. Don’t base your social life on his. Don’t become one of those girls who only hangs out with her boyfriend. Enjoy college, have fun with your sisters and see your main squeeze when it's convenient. 

5. Don’t be naïve and don’t force something that’s not meant to be. If it’s just a casual hookup, don’t be shocked when he’s all over another girl at the social. Find the good, nice frat guy and pursue the relationship with him. Remember, it is college and guys can be pigs. Don’t let that bring you down! You will find your Romeo soon enough.      

Good luck to all my hopeless romantics out there. I hope you find your own Frateos and Soroiets. Don’t forget to have fun while you're at it!

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.
