7 Reasons Khalid And Cuse Are Two Peas In A Pod

Name a better duo, I'll wait.

Khalid pulled up to the Cuse to perform at our annual Block Party concert in the Dome. Over the course of the weekend, Khalid proved to bleed orange... Here's why.

1. He came out wearing a Syracuse hoodie

Usually, when you go to a concert, the performer is wearing some crazy out-there outfit. Not Khalid. He pulled up wearing the typical Syracuse University student outfit: jeans and some sort of Cuse hoodie. It just goes to show that he's just like us and that he rolls orange! So much respect.

2. AND his dancers were dressed in Cuse gear too!

Khalid had four AMAZING dancers on stage with him, and they also were rocking Cuse gear! Two of them had on cute cropped polos, and the other two had on adorable vintage tees. Love that!

3. He lived in Watertown for three years.

We all know Khalid grew up in El Paso, but did you know that he lived in Watertown for a few years while his mom was stationed at the army base? Watertown is right up 81 from Cuse!

4. And he even visited his old high school!

How sweet!!!! Khalid definitely didn't let the fame get to his head. He still hasn't forgotten where he's come from. This just shows how much he cares.

5. He went out to a Cuse frat party

A few nights before he performed in the Dome, he rolled up to a Cuse frat party. This just further shows he's really just like the rest of us and cares about interacting with Cuse students.

6. He replaced "915" with "315" when he sang American Teen

One of the lyrics in American Teen is "from the city of the 915," which is the area code for El Paso. However, when he sang it at the Dome, he replaced it with 315, the area code for Cuse. We see you, Khalid.

7. He engaged in some ~trading~ with a brother of DKE at Cuse

He really just hit up a DKE brother to do a little exchange... so casual.

Khalid really proved to us that he's just one of us. He's a fantastic Grammy-nominated artist, but it's deep down he's just a kid that wants to have fun and loves the Cuse, like any other SU student. We love you, Khalid! Come back soon!

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
