An Open Letter To My Freshman Floor

These are the relationships I live for

An Open Letter To My Freshman Floor

Dear Brew 4,

Over the past 72 days, I have been trying to think of a way to express my gratitude to all 34 of you.

I remember the first floor meeting like it was yesterday. We all were sitting in a circle introducing ourselves and saying where we were from. At first I thought to myself, "oh God half, the floor is from New Jersey this is going to be like high school all over again." Soon, I realized that some of you were from Massachusetts, California, Puerto Rico and even China! Our floor was not just diverse in terms of geographical location, but there are a variety of personalities. I spent a lot of time observing the dynamic for the first few weeks because I wanted to see where I would fit best.

In retrospect, we have spent a short amount of time together, but It it feels like we have been through so much already. We have experienced a lot of our "firsts" together. First time going to a college party/frat, first college exam, first time doing laundry and first time puking from too much alcohol (don't worry Mom, not me).

When I went home for a weekend in October I was thrilled to get away, but I missed the people I would see through the halls on a daily basis. I missed being greeted by Kayla throwing her shoe at me and giving me a big hug, watching Caroline make Easy Mac and striking up conversation, or Olivia trying to help me with my hairdos. These are the relationships that I live for.

I have developed an individual and unique friendship with each and everyone of you that I am beyond grateful for. I am thankful that you all embrace me and laugh at my ridiculous humor. Everyone on this floor has made my transition to college a little bit easier.

I feel like we have a created a family of our own. I hope you know that I will always have your back from now until we graduate.

Thank you Brew 4 for motivating, supporting me, and loving me for the person I am.

Love,

Shayna

Being Invisible The Best Super Power

The best superpower ever? Being invisible of course. Imagine just being able to go from seen to unseen on a dime. Who wouldn't want to have the opportunity to be invisible? Superman and Batman have nothing on being invisible with their superhero abilities. Here are some things that you could do while being invisible, because being invisible can benefit your social life too.

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:
