To My New Sisters,

I'm so happy that you are here and that I have the privilege to call you my sisters. You have worked extremely hard to get to where you are and you should be proud of yourselves. I have watched you grow over the past several weeks in a group and as individuals. You have endured many stresses, long nights, and doubts, but you made it.

I'm excited to walk with you through the rest of your journey here. I can't wait to share the smiles, the laughs, the jokes, and even the tears with each of you. You have already shown me so much and I can't even imagine what will happen in the years to come.

If you look around, these are the girls that you are going to love more than anyone . You'll be each other's cheerleaders and voices of reason. Give any of them a call, they'll be there for you. Walk up to them around campus, they'll greet you warmly. Haven't spoken to a sister in a while? No worries, you'll pick up right where you left off.

You may have heard the saying "it's not four years, it's for life", and that's absolutely true. But I hope that you live these four years like it is the rest of your life. Spread your wings and do all of the things your heart desires. Join that club, run for a position, travel, take some classes, get out there and make the world yours.

I love each of you immensely and I can't wait to spend the rest of forever with you by my side.

Love,

Your Sister

22 New Things That I Want To Try Now That I'm 22

"I don't know about you but I'm feelin' 22," I have waited 6 long years to sing that and actually be 22! Now 22 doesn't seem like a big deal to people because you can't do anything that you couldn't do before and you're still super young. But I'm determined to make my 22nd year a year filled with new adventures and new experiences. So here's to 22.

1. Go sky diving.

What's crazier than jumping out of a plane? (Although I'll probably try indoor skydiving first.)

2. Go cliff jumping/diving.

I must be the only Rhode Islander who hasn't gone to Jamestown and jumped off a cliff.

3. Ride in a hor air balloon.

Up, up and away.

4. Try out skiing.

Cash me in the next Olympics, how bout dat.

5. Try out snow boarding.

Shawn White, I'm coming for you.

6. Go bungee jumping.

Because at least this time I'll be attached to something.

7. Go to Portugal.

I mean I'm Portuguese so I have to go at some point, right?

8. Go to Cape Verde.

Once again, I'm Cape Verdean so I have to go.

9. Vist one of the seven wonders of the world.

I mean hey, Egypt's on, my bucket list.

10. Try out surfing.

It's only natural that somebody from the Ocean State knows how to surf.

11. Learn a new langauge.

Because my little bit of Portuguese, Spanish and Latin isn't cutting it anymore.

12. Travel to a state that I've never been to before.

Fun fact: I've only been to 17 of the 50 states.

13. Go paddle boarding.

Pretty boring but I've never done it.

14. Go scuba diving.

I'm from the Ocean State so I guess I should see the ocean up close and personal.

15. Learn how to line dance.

There's actually a barn in my state that does line dancing, so this one will definitely get crossed off.

16. Go kayaking.

All this water around me and I haven't done a lot of the water activites.

17. Stay the night in a haunted hotel room.

I bet if I got my friends to come with me, it would be like the Suite Life of Zach and Cody episode, minus the ghost coming out of the wall but you never know.

18. Get my palms read.

Because who doesn't want to know their future.

19. Go to a medium.

Like a medium that can communicate with people that have died.

20. Take a helicopter ride.

Air plane: check Helicopter:....

21. Sleep under the stars.

Because sleeping in a tent is more like glamping than camping

22. Just to try new things in my everyday life.

Whether it's trying a new restaurant, getting something different at my usual restaurants, changing my usual style, going on the scary rides at amusement parks, and bringing things I used to do back into my life now.

Darty season the time of year that all students look forward to. Wearing your favorite pair of shorts a cute shirt or even basketball jersey and skipping on over to fraternity row.

To open it all up, why don't we start with the song that gets evert white person ever, lit? And it begins...

We've got to jam to something while a latter song is banned! With the upbeat rhythm and unmatched lyrics, you can't go wrong with Mr. Brightside.

2. Walker Wes & Dyl - "Jordan Belfort "

Okay, I get it. This song is old, but that doesn't means it doesn't slap still. Am I right or am I right?

3. All American Rejects - "Gives You Hell"

Let's be honest this has been a bop since it dropped and no one can deny it.

4. OutKast - "Ms. Jackson"

Never meant to make your daughter cry... Obviously, but it still happened.

5. Drake - "God's Plan"

Scary hours, sad boy hours, whatever suites your fancy.

6. Soulja Boy - "Crank That"

We all think our music taste has evolved until we hear this MASTERPIECE. I bet that within the first few minutes of the song you will see people break out the dance that goes along with it too!

7. Post Malone - "Better Now"

Because, for real, who doesn't love Posty?

8. Cardi B, J Balvin, and Bad Bunny - "I Like It"

Since Bodak Yellow, all the rave is Cardi B and college girls, for one, are HERE for IT.

9. Khalid, 6LACK, Ty Dolla $ign - "OTW"

You can't go wrong with this one because guys love the rappers and girls love Khalid.

WALMART YODELING KID. 'Nuff said.

11. Lynyrd Skynyrd - "Sweet Home Alabama"

Did you really think this wouldn't be on this list?
