Girls Ask Guys: The Undeniable Truth

Finding dates for upcoming functions is like no stress you've experienced before.


Ah, school is back in full swing. The sun is beating, the clock tower is ringing and sorority girls are frantically trying to find potential dates for upcoming functions.

If you’re like me, you had no idea you would be signing up for this minimized version of hell. “Girls asking guys to be their dates? What kind of sick joke is this? How am I supposed to ask someone to be my date when I don’t even know how to talk to the male specimen?”

These were probably your exact thoughts and/or spoken words at the beginning of freshman year.

Most of LSU Greek Life attended single-sex high schools back in the day, so you’d think that you could get some informative advice from them. You and I both thought wrong. They have no idea what the hell they’re doing either.

You’d be surprised (or not) at how this situation brings out the crazy in sorority girls. 

Here is your typical, melodramatic conversation of three friends discussing (ranting) about the lucky fellows they’re going to invite: 

Friend 1: OK, so I’m going to bring Freddy*, that way you can bring his really hot friend Gabe*. 

Friend 2: Oh, no. I’ve only met Gabe once!!! But he is really cute, now that you say that. Well, Friend 3, you need to invite Kevin* because you met him like five months ago and you two totally hit it off. 

Friend 3: Will he even remember me though?!

All: (screams hysterically).

There you have it folks. The extra stress of finding dates is like no other stress you’ve seen or experienced before. 

If all else fails, ride solo for the night. Paint yourself a party cup and wear the stupid costume you want to wear. Hopefully your friends gave up on finding a date too and you can all go solo together.

 *Name dropping isn't nice.

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.
