I'm Basic And I'm Proud

I'm Basic And I'm Proud

I mentally cannot function without my morning Starbucks

You call me basic, unoriginal, and predictable. I call myself happy.

1. As winter comes to a close, I can't help but miss the warm comfort of my UGG boots

They block out the coldness of society. And actual coldness.

2. Spring has me saying hello to festival season complete with booty shorts, holographic makeup, and flower crowns

I have to say goodbye to my UGGs, but I get to replace them with flower crowns in the summer months.

3. I constantly miss my Pumpkin Spice Lattes when they aren't in season

How else am I supposed to tell what season is next without my Peppermint Mochas in red cups and coconut frappes?

4. My North Face is my ride or die.

It's as soft as Fabio's perfect, flowing hair.

5. That North Face goes perfectly with my yoga pants

They are as comfy as sweats but make it appear that I tried harder.

6. All of my blinged-out Victoria's Secret hoodies go with everything

Especially all those yoga pants.

7. Of course I have a Michael Kors and Coach bag to go with each of these outfits

They go great with every VS hoodie I own.

8. My makeup is always on fleek with perfect winged eyeliner

Of course I always have a Kylie Cosmetic liquid lip.

Am I materialistic? Maybe a little. But if that's what my basic butt wants to spend my well-earned money on, let me, and the rest of the basic college population, live on fabulously.

7 Things You Do If You’re One Of Those 'I Always Order Chicken Tenders' People

It's hard to love food but also hate it at the same time.


Growing up, my mom would usually have to cook me a separate dinner from my siblings. Why? Because I was ridiculously picky and wouldn't eat the same foods as everyone else. Trust me, it gets old. It's not my fault certain things just taste gross, you learn to live with it.

1. You eat something you hate just to see if you still hate it

I'll take a bite of a burger every once in a while just to reaffirm that it still tastes like dirt. I just have to know. Don't even get me started on vegetables.

2. When trying to explain what you actually like to eat, people give you major side eye

Don't ask me about my eating habits unless you want to get into a long, confusing conversation.

3. Eating at someone else’s house when you were younger was a pain

You hate to tell their parents just how much you hate the food that they gave you. So, you sucked it up and ate it anyway only to come home and whine to your parents.

4. There’s one thing on any menu you always fall back on...even if it’s on the kids menu

Pizza, maybe. Chicken tenders, always.

5. Trying a new food is a very proud moment

It's like, wow! Look at me being all adventurous.

6. When you realize you actually like some new food, that’s an even more amazing moment

Crazy times. This rarely happens.

7. Sometimes it’s the texture, sometimes it’s the flavor, all the time it’s left on your plate

Oops. At restaurants it's either left on your plate or your order is very specified.

10 Things I Learned From Joining A Non-Traditional Sorority

Joining a non-traditional sorority may not be normal but it can have its benefits.


When I started college, I had no intention of joining a sorority. However after hearing my friends talk about the amazing time they were having in their sororities I decided to try and join one. After multiple failed attempts at joining a traditional sorority, I finally found my forever home… in a non-traditional sorority. And after talking to my friends in traditional sororities, I found there are a few things that are different.

​1.  Every time you mention being in a sorority, you get a million questions of which one and people don’t seem to understand when it is not a traditional one.


2. You get to know all your sisters extremely well... almost too well.


3. You don’t have to drink to have a fun time.


4. You can’t find your sorority letters anywhere unless you special order them.


5. It tends to be cheaper to go the non-traditional route.


6. Big/Little is just as important for your sorority as a traditional one.

7. There are secrets… a lot of secrets. But it is so worth it.


8. There is very little drama but when it does happen everyone knows everything.


9. Your sisters will become your best friends and your big/little will be even closer than that.


10. No matter where you go you will see a sister and know her name.
