5 Things Every Orientation leader Can Relate To Once Orientation Season is Over

1. Your body just naturally wakes up at 5am since you did it for a month(s) straight

Depending on how much you get ready and how early orientation starts, chances are you set an alarm for anywhere between 3:45am (me) and 6:00am. Doing this repeatedly for weeks at a time can definitely cause you to form a habit. So even though orientations are over and you can finally sleep in, your body keeps waking you up....and you almost get ready and put your polo on.

2. You AUTOMATICALLY start dancing when you hear a song from the summer

It can be the songs you always dance to, songs from the inside jokes between you and your OL friends, or even just the songs that were on the daily playlist during orientation, if you hear one-you dance. No questions asked.

3. You're not entirely sure how to function without your orientation leader besties by your side 24/7

You get to live with, work with, and hang out with an amazing group of people for weeks at a time. And then reality sets in and you don't have them down the hall from you any more. It can be hard. And now you're just counting down the days until school starts again.

4. You're still trying to break the habit of raising your eyebrows and your voice when someone asks you a question

It's the "Orientation Leader Face" or the "Orientation Leader Voice" and some people can break the habit rather quickly...some of us though (me), are not so lucky.

5. You never thought you'd miss campus...but then you're home and all you want to do is go back

You get to live on a college campus that is so beautiful and you absolutely adore..And then you have to go back home to a very subpar scenery.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
