The 14 Stages Of Being A Big During Big/Little Week

Who knew giving really was as fun as receiving

The 14 Stages Of Being A Big During Big/Little Week

Do you smell it? That smell? A kind of smelly smell? The smelly smell smell that smells...smelly? That's right, big little week is upon us. Sororities all across campus are perfuming the air with the warm scents of glitter, cupcakes, and and freshly painted canvases. Having gone through two amazing big/little weeks as a little, I can honestly say getting a nonstop stream of gifts of things related to everything I love was the dream. But now being a first time big, I get to give that joy to someone else. And even though this week is stressful for bigs everywhere, seeing the smile on your little's face and attacking her at Rev makes the fourteen stages below worth it.

1. Finding out you got the perfect little

2. Making everyone you know stop what they're doing so they can stalk your little and bask in the love

3. Studying her survey to the letter to come up with the perfect themes

4. Freaking out because you think your little may be disappointed when she finds out its you

5. Realizing that's ridiculous

6. Mentally preparing yourself for crafting

7. Crafting

8. Restraining yourself from eating all the goodies you baked her

9. Struggling to come up with clues because suddenly you can't remember anything about yourself

10. Transporting all the gifts to Ward

11. Comparing your table to everyone else's and wanting more because your little deserves the world

11. Crying when you see your little post a picture of her with her tables

12. Finishing your last table

13. Getting ready for Rev

14. Greeting your perfect addition into you family with open arms and loving her endlessly

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.

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.
