Oh, recruitment. The dragging and the tiring week where PNM's (Potential New Members) get to find their new home for the next four years. Yes, it is a stressful and an extremely long week, but in the end, you are going to find your best friends for a lifetime. You will have girls that you can call sisters for life. Here is Sorority Formal Recruitment as told by the cast of "Jersey Shore."

It comes that time of year that the semester is about to begin and recruitment is around the corner.

It is the first day of recruitment, you wake up at around 6 a.m. and your first house is in about an hour.

You are so petrified for your first house, you are standing the alphabetical line literally shaking.

The girls open the door and start chanting and bouncing at you like you have never experienced before. You are officially in absolute panic mode.

You finally get out and think to yourself, did they like me?

Was I too sweaty? Did they think I was pretty? Could they tell I had to pee the whole time? Did I smile enough? Did they see the nail polish chip on my left pinky? Did they think it was weird the way I sipped the water cup? Did the third girl I talked to hate me because I messed up on my eyeliner?

The long, tiring day is finally over. You are so exhausted, all you want to do is sleep for like the rest of the week.

You cannot wait to see which houses you got back the next day.

Your recruitment counselor shows you your card... and your top house dropped you.

You are now in such a panic that you consider dropping, but your recruitment counselor tells you to "trust the process" because you will end up where you belong in the end.

Now that it is set three and you are really starting to love a few houses.

Finally, it has reached preference, also known as "pref." You have fallen in love with both houses, but which one do you put first?

It is the moment you have been waiting for all week. You get to open your bid card...

Yes, you got your first choice!

Now you get to go enjoy bid day and meet all your new sisters. I guess your recruitment counselor was right, trust the process.

Even if you didn't get your top house, you will end up falling in love with your house and the friends/sisters you're going to make for life!

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

Frequent readers of LGBTQ fiction might feel like they're reading the same book over and over again, with few exceptions.

Most of these books were on my TBR list for months and I didn't realize they were about gay women until I was reading them, hopefully, this list of books can interest you in expanding your reading material and seeking out different stories.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because Those Hormones Aren't Gonna Balance Themselves

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

It's common knowledge that your hormones impact practically every aspect of your body. Weight gain, acne, mental health... it's all related to your hormonal health. If your life is treating your body like the superstar it is, your endocrine glands should produce the perfect amount of each hormone to keep you running like a well-oiled machine. This is a nice thought, sure. In our current society, even the most balanced person you know may be missing an important aspect of respecting their body. Things like sleep, stress, diet, exercise, and a busy pace of life can throw hormones off balance and negatively impact your general wellbeing. Sometimes these imbalances are noticed right away, while other times they can be smaller — annoying, but not as obvious.

One of the biggest discomforts I initially had with the stay-at-home order was feeling trapped and isolated from what was going on outside the walls of my house. Add that to living in a massive city, where social distancing is nearly impossible when doing something as simple as walking down the street.

I've always been a picture hoarder. No matter what happens with someone or how many pictures I have of the same thing, I hate deleting pictures. They all serve as memories to me, which is something I think is super important.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.
