sorority girl habits
Start writing a post

There are a lot of things that go into being in a sorority. Sorority girls are more than their letters, and they are most certainly more than their stereotypes. I would like to preface this list by saying that I myself am in a sorority, and am in no way trying to offend sorority women. As a sorority girl, I have become abundantly aware of some of the habits I have picked up since joining a sorority. I have compiled a list of those habits that many sorority girls are guilty of. If you're a sorority girl, you are probably guilty of at least a few of these telltale signs. If you're not a sorority girl and you are guilty of at least a few of these telltale signs, recruitment season is right around the corner!

1. You own more Comfort Color t-shirts than you know what to do with


Socials, Lip Sync, Formals, oh my. For just about any occasion you have purchased yourself an oversized Comfort Color t-shirt. You have one in every color, and you are probably wearing it two sizes too big with a pair of running shorts. UniversityTees has your credit card information and shipping address on file because to be quite frank, you have a problem.

2. Every time need to clap, you have to resist the urge to snap


You have definitely experienced this one more than once. During a classroom presentation or speech by someone in your class, everyone curiously applauds and you awkwardly bring your hand up to snap your fingers together. I mean, can you get anymore sorority than that?

3. Come fall, your Instagram game is fire


If we are being honest here, your social media game is always strong, especially with all of those sorority poses and squats plastered all over your feed. Yet, in the fall you post every 20 minutes. You're probably spending too much of your time creating cute collages that say "Go Greek" and posting the cutest photos to promote you chapter.

4. You may not be a feminist, but you have some serious girl power


No matter what we you have got your girls' backs. Even if they aren't your girls, you've got their backs. Being a sorority girl makes you a strong woman and you love to spread that strength to other women. Maybe you don't identify as a feminist, but you are always standing up for your girls!

5. You probably can recite the Greek alphabet without having to think about it


Some way, somehow you have managed to learn the greek alphabet. You probably learned it in song form and it is constantly playing in the back of your mind. Whenever you get the chance to sing it loud and proud, you do. You also probably have the greek alphabet keyboard on your iPhone, even though you only used it that one time to put your chapter in your instagram bio.

6. You can't go anywhere on your university's campus without running into at least 10 people that you know


You're probably not that popular. Don't be confused. You just see your sisters everywhere. Its like you have over a hundred friends that make walking through campus a little more fun. You probably never have to sit alone or spend hours searching for a table in the library. Odds are, you have at least 20 sisters somewhere in every building on campus.

7. You feel some sort of nostalgia when you hear the song Closer by The Chainsmokers (feat. Halsey)


Maybe not every sorority girl feels this way, but every sorority girl at least has some sort of anthem that reminds them of recruitment. You probably have videos of you and your sisters dancing to this song in slow motion and jumping up and down wearing matching outfits. Closer by The Chainsmokers (feat. Halsey) is definitely one that brings me back to recruitment of 2016.

8. Even the most unpredictable people have your back


Whenever you need it, there is someone there for you. Even if they aren't one of your home girls, someone is there that can relate to what you are going through. That's the wild thing about having over 100 sisters. You have the biggest family and even the most unlikely people will come out of the woodwork and be there for you when you need it most.

9. Every time someone stereotypes a sorority you cant help but roll your eyes


Many people are pretty naive when it comes to greek life. There are many stereotypes that go into making people this way. Its so easy for people to project these stereotypes onto the greek life of your campus, but you know that those stereotypes are not true. When someone starts bad mouthing greek life, you do one of two things. You either sit there quietly and roll your eyes, or you go off on them and teach them a thing or two.

10. You are fully trained to talk to a brick wall because well… Recruitment


Not to say that you talk to brick walls during recruitment, because its is quite the opposite. Yet, but participating in the numerous recruitment workshops you are fully trained in having an average conversation with just about any type of person. Never have you ever talked so much in your life, the recruitment rounds. If you so happen to have to talk to a brick wall… you're prepared.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
