Hail Southern and Hail Burkhalter.

7 Reasons Burkhalter Plantation Is The Best College Neighborhood

Statesboro, Georgia is an extremely special place. Not only to me but to all people lucky enough to experience the life of being a Georgia Southern student. As any Eagle knows, there are so many places to live. There are apartment complexes, subdivisions, dorms.... and then, there's Burkhalter Plantation.

Burkhalter is a place like no other, and I'm pretty sure I speak for everyone when I say that. It's a place where there is always something to do, something to drink, and fun to be had. Residents themselves have told me that they feel like a family in a sense, and that is partly due to the 300+ person GroupMe that they all share.

Burkhalter Plantation is the best college neighborhood out there, and if you don't know that yet - here are a few reasons to sway you.

1. Hurricane Heromine? Nah, Borocane mudbog seems like more fun.

2. History is respected.

5. When you fall into a slump, there's always a truck to pull you out of it... and down the street.

6. The death of any animal is respected, and grieved.

7. Almost every house has a dog... and who doesn't love dogs?

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.

To The Classes That Follow
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.
