Delco, I Love Ya!

Words cannot describe this wonderful place.

Delco, I Love Ya!

Delaware County, Pennsylvania, commonly referred to as "Delco," holds a special place in the hearts of all who live here. Located just minutes outside of Philadelphia, there really aren't any words that can describe this place or do it any justice. SNL did a great job of depicting the typical people you would find from Delco, so please watch the video below if you're confused about this wonderful county to which I'm referring.

If you're still confused after that, here's Urban Dictionary's definition of Delco.

So, after hearing some of my friends' stories about trying to explain Delco to their college friends, I decided to come up with a quick little description of my own, with a phrase for each letter of the word.

Delco is:

Driving to your local Wawa 5 times a day.

Everyone knows of one another, and everyone runs into each other at the Jersey Shore in the summer.

Llanerch Diner: Delco's "claim to fame" because Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence ate there in the movie Silver Linings Playbook.

Catholic school dances were the highlight of our middle school Friday nights.

Outside of Philadelphia: the description anyone from Delco gives to someone who asks where they're from.

In conclusion, Delco is amazing. I love you, Delco.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

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.
