Socials As Described By The Office
Zap 2 It

You look on your sorority's calendar for the upcoming week and see the fateful words, "Social with [insert fraternity here]." You and your friend look at each other, and you just know that this is going to be the best social ever. You love this fraternity. The guys are so cute, smart and nice. Your crush is in this frat, so you know you've got to look fine for this social. You can't wait to dress up in a themed outfit with your best friends. You're already planning the pregame. This is what your week probably looks like:

1. You're sitting in chapter, trying to stay awake while thinking about all the homework you have--but also thinking about who Ben is going to send home on The Bachelor this week--when the Social Chair stands up to make her announcement about the upcoming social.

2. She finally reveals the theme for this week's social, and you're thinking of all the clothes in your closet that will cut it. Most likely, you'll have to make a trip to Ragstock before Thursday.

3. But then, people start complaining about the theme because you did it last semester.

4. You eventually get out of chapter. But going to class that week while waiting in anticipation for Thursday is a lot harder than you originally thought.

5. You and your friend go to Ragstock to find the perfect outfit. You find it and buy it, but on your walk home realize you probably spent a little too much on an outfit you'll most likely never wear again.

6. Finally, It's Thursday! You and your friends start getting ready. You're curling your hair, doing your makeup and looking like a million bucks.

7. You and your best friend really killed the theme. You guys got that perfect mix of wearing the theme, but not trying too hard. You know your Insta game is going to be strong.

8. When your Big tells you you can be the DJ for the pregame.

9. When it's almost time to leave for the social, but you put your jam on before you leave.

10. The fraternity shows up and the two of you serenade each other with beautiful singing. You're pretty sure this fraternity/sorority pairing is one day going to win a Grammy.

11. As soon as all groups make it to the venue, everyone hits the dance floor and socializes.

12. You see your crush and he looks dashing, just as you expected.

13. However, your crush doesn't actually know you. So while you creepily stare at him, he's just standing there wondering who the creepy girl in the corner is.

14. You start to imagine your future together, because of course he'll figure out who you are and instantly fall in love with you. I mean, the wedding bells are basically ringing already.

15. Of course, crush boy never actually approaches you. Instead, you're left trying to avoid the jerks.

16. Someone had one too many drinks, and the sober monitors are not happy.

17. All the cute boys have already found girls to talk to, so you're left in the corner with the creepy new pledge. You think it might be time for you to leave the social and go home to sleep.

18. Your friends make you stay, and you all hit the dance floor together, because all their boy prospects were just "meh."

19. You're just about ready to leave for the night, but you don't leave without walking by and "accidentally" bumping into your crush. You play it off cool, though.

20. You and your friends stop to get food before you trek back home for the night.

21. You wake up the next morning with last night's eyeliner still on. You're also dead tired.

22. But you're already looking forward to next week's social!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
