The Secret Life of a Sorority Junior

Junior year is a sorority, and you're feeling washed up. It's almost inevitable at this point, and no matter how hard you try the feeling won't pass. All of a sudden all of these things are true.

1. Frat boys want all your new members

It's like you could be wearing that brand new bodysuit, but you even know it looks better on new member Rachel.

2. The songs that used to make you want to dance aren't relevant anymore.

What is this new rap? What happened to "Hotline Bling"? How do you dance to this?

3. You'd rather have a conversation with the older brothers, than try to play a game of pong anymore.

Seriously, where did my skills go? Ah whatever, I give up.

4. Speaking of which, you don't even know the newer pledge classes anymore?

Wait, you're a sophomore?

5. Everyone is dating littles, and you're trying to pretend like you're not going to be grandma this year.

Why doesn't anyone want to sister date me?

6. Hangovers start to be real.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F17%2F6362295965287953031884776020_giphy-1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=785&h=648e31a61b33d3bf35f50582850f53230c92dca3556d21dbcb5364c0d2566054&size=980x&c=3858470913 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F17%252F6362295965287953031884776020_giphy-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D785%26h%3D648e31a61b33d3bf35f50582850f53230c92dca3556d21dbcb5364c0d2566054%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3858470913%22%7D" expand=1]

I wasn't ready for this.

7. Hookup culture just stopped being appealing over night.

I don't know what happened, but the idea of that boy just isn't for me anymore.

8. The seniors are having the time of their lives, but you're not quite 21 yet.

Just two more months...

9. You have to plan ahead for themes because your wardrobe just doesn't support them like it used to.

Ugh why did I ever get rid of my overalls?

10. Chasers stop being an option.

Little, can you stop at the vending machine before you come over? I need a coke.

11. Your professors keep talking about your "future".

12. Staying in sounds terrible, but parties just aren't the same.

When did all the fun get sucked out of me?

& while all of this is low key true, you would never admit it. So stop cleaning your combat boots every weekend, put on a cute shirt & some jeans, because we going out tonight.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
