Sorority Bid Day (As Told By Cats)

Who's ready for their letters?

Sorority Bid Day (As Told By Cats)

To the outside world, sorority recruitment may look like a week-long party. But after a week of seemingly endless nights of dresses, pearls, awkward girl-flirting, and post-party food runs, recruitment will have you begging for a week off. Whether you crashed the night before or tried to stay up until dawn to line up, tensions are running high. But just as you reach to hit the snooze button, you realize: It’s bid day.

1. Waking up, yet again, before the sun to get ready.

This bed, tho ...

2. Scrambling to find an outfit for the day.

And realizing you've already worn out all your nice outfits for the week.

3. Wondering if you should avoid wearing organization's colors and how exactly to do so.

Red and green? Nope. Pink and white? Nope. Black? Agh!

4. Cramming into the holding room with the other PNMs for the final wait.

Ah yes, this again.

5. Trying to hold in your excitement every time someone opens the door.

Damn, it's just staff again.

6. After nearly falling asleep, the bids are out.


7. Tearing open your letter while trying to save the envelope.

Do it for the shadow box!

8. Finding out your favorite neutral sister is now your actual sister.

Wait, you mean you're an Alpha Pi TOO?

9. And then, the run.

Let's go home!

10. Trying to look cute for the cameras while simultaneously tripping over everyone.

Excuse me! Ouch, sorry!

11. Recognizing less than half of the girls hugging you and being totally okay with it.

I love you too! Now what did you say your name was?

12. Taking your first step into your new home like.

'Sup, y'all?

13. Bid-day pictures, now with matching shirts.

And realizing no one cares what you had on earlier.

14. And finally, party time!

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.
