If 9 MSU Dorms Were Celebrities

If 9 MSU Dorms Were Celebrities

It's almost like we live in Hollywood... kind of.

An old MSU article recently came out of hiding and it was glorious. I strongly considered doing a part two to that article because we have a new building on campus and it needs its shining moment in the realm of The Odyssey, but as I walked around campus I thought "what better way to describe MSU than its glamorous (and not so glamorous) dorm buildings." So without further ado.... Mississippi State dorm buildings as celebrities.

1. Magnolia and Oak - The Olsen twins

These two buildings are identical twins... everything about them is the same and everyone wants to live there. Just like Mary Kate and Ashley- back in the day- they are the stars of MSU dorm life no matter what anyone says.

2. Rice Hall - Lindsey Lohan

Everyone's mom lived in this dorm. Similar to Lindsey Lohan, in the beginning, it probably lived up to the standards of Oak and Magnolia, but eventually, something just didn't click right and it went crazy. If you have ever been on the elevators in Rice, then you know that this dorm building is our girl Lindsey to a "t."

3. Moseley - Channing Tatum

I really just think this dorm was built to make Rice, Cresswell, and Hathorn look bad and it really does. I personally have never been a huge fan of Channing Tatum's acting, but I'd be lying if I didn't say he was a little too easy on the eyes.

4. Hathorn and Cresswell - Abby and Brittany Hensel

Hathorn and Cresswell look alike, smell alike, and get all the same reviews. I'm a big fan of TLC Stars, Abby, and Brittany. If you go to MSU and aren't sure who they are, give them a Google and you'll get it.

5. Hull Hall - Betty White


While this dorm building is much older than Rice, it doesn't really take away from the beauty of Mississippi State. It fits in perfectly with the historical look State tries to pull off, just like Betty White fits perfectly into every role she plays.

6. Sessums - Jon Gosselin

I am very aware that Sessums is an all girls dorm, but let's be honest the friendships people make living in "sketch"ums are the only good things anyone has to say about that building. Similar to Jon Gosselin the only thing good anyone has to say about him is his 8 kids.

7. Herbert, Critz, and McKee - Frankie Delgado

I'm not inserting a picture here because odds are you won't remember them anyway. Just like Frankie's claim to fame was being Brody Jenner's friend, these three dorms are the only kind of remembered because of what they're close to. If you live in one of these places you can always count on someone saying "wait you live where?"

8. Dogwood and Deavenport - Kylie and Kendall Jenner

No explanation need.

9. Zacharias Village - The Sharks

I am referring to the billionaires on Shark Tank. This whole group of dorm buildings is literally filled with the best of the best of MSU.

A Girl Gets Raped At School Then Gets Suspended

Boys are always going to be boys, right?

How many cases have there been about young girls get raped? As of late rape is becoming a huge topic that some are still afraid to talk about. I am here to share a story of a ninth grader who is, of course, getting the blame rather than the boys that did the crime.

A female student who goes to Miami Carol Senior High School has brought claims to people about three boys who had raped her. Where did it happen? It happened in the bathroom at the school, yep you read that correctly. These students had taken advantage of another during the time they should be learning.

The fourteen-year-old who I'm going to refer to as Sarah claims she was sexually assaulted by three boys and gets suspended from the aftermath.

"He was holding onto my sweater really tight and I was trying to leave to get back to class, and he kind of just pulled me into the restroom," Sarah tells. She went to a teacher had told her about the incident that occurred. Eventually, the school suspended the boys but did not expel them.

I get that Sarah may be horrified or even scared to go to go due to what happened. Why does she need to be suspended? What did she do in the situation that she should get a strike for it? Maybe it's for Sarah's safety, maybe they are treating her unfairly.

Moving on, the first boy she says forced her to have anal sex while the others forced her to perform oral on them. However, the girl supposedly told the Mother that she didn't scream or run away leaving that as consensual.

Sigh, why does it always come down to that? If a girl or woman doesn't strike back it is considered consensual. I've read that in other cases before and I just don't understand how that can validate any situation. I'm sorry I didn't have enough time to fight back when I was being held down or forced.

As if this story could get any worse it did and fast. Two of the boys' families stepped forward and told the investigator something that no one wants to hear. One of the boys has gonorrhea and the other is HIV positive.

This girl is only fourteen years old and is going to have life ripped away. They had given Sarah medication just in case and she won't know if she is positive until a year later. Why? What did he do to deserve that?

The same with the boy though, it is a shame that he is HIV positive but why would you want to infect someone else? Why would you want to let someone else suffer from the same disease?

The school had released a statement which said “School district administrators in conjunction with Miami-Dade Schools Police are thoroughly investigating this case thoroughly, and it continues to be an active investigation. Information regarding the case has been provided to the State Attorney’s Office as well as the Department of Children and Families (DCF).”

Sarah is getting therapy and is staying away from the school which I said I would completely understand. Her Mother is stating that the district is being difficult with allowing her to transfer someplace else.

Rape isn't going to go away even if we want it to. People are still going to do the same thing no matter how hard we fight. It becoming the same fight over and over and there isn't much we can do.

I just hope that this won't be so popular in the news. With each and every story that comes up reads the same thing. Female gets raped by a male and they usual result in the winning of the man.

At some point we need to figure out a way to calm this but unfortnauly for us we can't make it stop.

Full of Emotions: A poem

Not positive emotions, but they needed written
2262
views

This is a poem that has been stewing in the back of my head for the past week, things that I've felt like I needed to voice and should've spoken up about ages ago.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy it.


I can't bring myself to love you.

I can't stand you

I almost hate you

and yet,

because of who you are,

I know it shouldn't be like this.


Does it make me a bad person

if I wish for your existence to end?

Does it make me evil

to wish no good to come to you?

If this is a sin,

I think it probably is,

I am not ready to repent for it yet.


All these feelings

I used to have for you

have been numbed

by the anesthesia of time.

Every time the anesthesia wears off

I learn a new thing to like

and almost just as quickly

another thing to hate.

You hurt me and you hurt

people I love

with equal abandon

and I can't forgive that.


Maybe it makes me a bad person

maybe I'm justified

in my feelings of dislike

and even if I am

I don't care.

My emotions have been

stunted for so long

because of you.


Being away from you,

I'm allowed to lower my defenses

and actually let my emotions grow

and attach myself to others.


Being away from you,

I realized how strange your love is,

how different your views are

and I've seen how far apart

you and I are now.

And I'm okay with it.
