5 Things Every Orientation Leader Can Relate To Once Orientation Season Is Over

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

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


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.

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
