A Letter To My Sorority Sisters After Recruitment

I have learned so much and gained so much from my time with my sisters and this is what I want to say to them.

A Letter To My Sorority Sisters After Recruitment
Skyler Anderson

Dear Sisters,

Thank you for everything.

I want to start off by saying that I was nervous for the two weeks that consisted of spirit week and recruitment. I will be honest and say that during the year that I have been a part of this sisterhood, I wasn't always the most involved and didn't have a ton of connections to sisters within the chapter. Part of this was time constraints with other things in my life and the other part was my fear of rejection. So needless to say, I was nervous about spending two weeks with everyone when I felt that I didn't have the same strong bonds that everyone else had.

Thanks to each and every one of you, I had no reason to be nervous. I was welcomed into people's conversations and circles with open arms. The past two weeks showed me how lucky I am to be in this circle of sisterhood. Thank you to the sisters that were always down to ride with me to the events and stay by my side so I didn't feel alone. Thank you to the sisters that came up to me just to say hi or to talk about outfits. Thank you to the sisters that said insanely kind words for my senior appreciation, I truly had no idea that I had made an impression on so many of you. Thank you to the sisters that showed their appreciation and love for me in other ways, such as shout-outs in speeches, asking me to do things, and just coming up and telling me you love me. I always knew that this sisterhood was right for me, I just didn't know how, a year later and I am starting to figure it out. Thank you for showing me love, building my confidence, and allowing me to be me. There are so many more words I can say, but for now, we will leave it as this simple thank you and save the rest for when I have to leave you all for the real world.

Love, Skyler

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.
