My 5 Favorite Places At Mississippi State University
Start writing a post

Coming to Mississippi State University has definitely been the best decision I've ever made! I've made great friends, my classes are amazing, and the scenery is great! If you're looking to be at MSU anytime soon- check these places out- I'm sure you'll see their beauty life I do!

1. The Chapel of Memories

The Chapel of Memories- erected with the bricks from the original Old Main Dormitory- is the most peaceful and beautiful place on campus, in my opinion! It's tall bell-tower and old bricks make you feel like you're looking at a piece of history (which you are). If you're on campus at the strike of the hour, you'll hear it's bell ring, and it's one thing that gets me through those Monday blues.

2. The Colvard Student Union

If you ask any student on Mississippi State's campus where the Colvard Student Union is, they'll definitely be able to point you in the right direction. Located at the center of campus, right on the drill field, "The Union" is a social hub. It's always full of people, and the line for Chick-Fil-A is always slammed (but the line moves very efficiently if I do say so). You'll always see something going on in the Union, whether it's Mental Health Assessments, Major Fairs, or students eating and cramming for their exams- the Union is never dull.

3. The Perry Cafeteria

Now, y'all know that I can't get through this list without talking about somewhere to eat, because while the Union has their fair assortment- Flex Dollars can run out quickly! So if you're looking for somewhere to spend those block meals- the Perry is where it's at! With all-you-care-to-eat foods for everyone, including Vegan and Gluten-free options, the Perry has it all! From Breakfast to early dinner, the Perry is always stocked with amazing food- not to mention it has world flags hanging on the walls! It's definitely my go-to cafeteria.

4. The Drill Field

If you are a student (for future student) at Mississippi State University, you will go to the Drill Field. Many of your classes will be centered around the Drill Field, but also so many things happen on the Drill Field every single day! Free tee shirts, free food, and other things are just handed out on campus. Many sororities, fraternities, and other campus organizations will set up tables on the Drill Field for people to come learn about them. It's an amazing place to sit and look at cloud shapes, listen to music, or stargaze at night! The Drill Field is truly one of the most beautiful on campus.

5. Davis Wade Stadium

Now, y'all knew I couldn't forget this one! Davis-Wade Stadium, the only place where you can hear cowbells ringing for bulldogs! It's so electric and hype on game day weekends, and if it's not a game day weekend, you just look at the stadium- wishing it was. It is the most fun place on campus on the weekend for sure, and I can't wait to be back in cheering for my Bulldogs!

Well, folks, there's my list of places that I love on campus! There are obviously so many others- Humphrey Coliseum, Fresh Food Company, The Junction, Old Main, and more! I could go on and on about how much I love Mississippi State University and how it is absolutely the most beautiful university in the world! Mississippi State, you have my heart, thank you for all of your beautiful sights (and sounds)!

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

As college students, sometimes life can be overwhelming. Four tests in a week and you only passed one of them? I feel that. Days like that, you just need time for yourself. A time where you're nice to yourself and put your own self-care before anything else.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
