PSA: Always Hold The Door

Why is Hodor not an internet sensation?

PSA: Always Hold The Door

For me, every Sunday night consists of two things. One: ice cream, because obviously Sunday is ice cream day. And two: "Game of Thrones." If I, for some horrific reason, get bitten by a shark, attacked by the mafia, get struck by a subway train or have some other horrible accident and am forced to miss my Sunday night GOT ritual, I unintentionally hear all about what I missed. I cannot go a single Monday without hearing the spoilers all about the episode I had missed. This obviously ruins everything!

Two weeks ago, after the Hodor episode, I thought social media would be filled with "hold the door" GIFS, tweets, and pictures. But I was extremely disappointed. I'm not sure whether or not people were so upset about the ending of that episode to poke fun at the hilarious yet saddening ending. When coming to work the next day I did not hear one comment about Hodor's courageous attempt to protect Bran. I felt as though this pivotal point in this season of GOT was underestimated.

Personally, my sister and I cannot get enough of this "hold the door" moment. Every time we leave the room, close the door, walk out of a restaurant, or do anything remotely involving a door one of us obnoxiously bellows, "Hold the door!" After laughing at ourselves for 10 minutes each time we finally realized what exactly social media is lacking. Working at Odyssey, I read hundreds of articles each week, and did not read a single one about Hodor.

It was after this realization that I decided that everyone needs some more Hodor in their lives.

Every "Game of Thrones fans" feeling toward doors.

So my question is, why hasn't "Hold the door," become a national phenomenon? I'm waiting to see the neverending Tumblr, Insta, and Twitter memes. Come on, people!

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
