To My Girls At Phi Mu, Thank You

The ladies of Kappa Mu have impacted me in ways I never imagined.

To My Girls At Phi Mu, Thank You

It may seem a little basic to be writing this article but honestly, I can't help it. Leading up to my college years I knew that I would want to join a sorority once I got to college. Not for the stereotype of what it was, but for everything that I knew the girls within the chapter stood for. A bunch of people have their own opinion about what "Greek life" is, but I can tell you that even though I was always open-minded before, it has helped me grow more than I could ever imagine.

Today, March 4, is Phi Mu's Founders Day. In a few hours, we will all get together and celebrate the love that our chapter has shared, and the women that have made our organization what it is over the past 166 years.

It is something that you will see all of us say, but it is true. The ideals of what a Phi Mu woman truly embodies and the girls of the Kappa Mu Chapter here at Georgia Southern have made an impact on my life. We are certainly not all the same, but we have been through the good and the bad and lifted each other up through it all. There is one thing that I have learned from my short time in Phi Mu, and that is to keep those close to you accountable. If we are not there for each other and constructively helping each other, and just criticizing, then we end at a dead end road.

Phi Mu has humbled me and showed me grace. I have learned lessons and been shown an immense amount of love through every pitfall. And even though we aren't always on each others' good sides, I know the true bond that we share is thicker than anything that could try to come between us.

I have never witnessed a group of girls that truly want to be world-changers until I walked through the doors of Phi Mu. They were miles above the stereotype that everyone else has in their minds for a typical "sorority girl". The capabilities of the girls within our chapter of Kappa Mu are like nothing you have ever seen, I promise. Ya'll will see one day when they have literally made history.

The standard that the girls of Phi Mu hold their selves to is above the rest and I am so proud to call it my home.

Thank you, Phi Mu, Kappa Mu, for being the most open-minded, whole-hearted, loving, and welcoming group of life-changing young women I have ever had the chance to meet. You mean more to me than you know and I will never be able to tell you that enough.

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!


Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid,, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).
