Thoughts As A PNM During Recruitment Told By Gilmore Girls

We all thought them, we just didn't say them.

Thoughts As A PNM During Recruitment Told By Gilmore Girls

... but I have recruitment tomorrow bright and early. 9 p.m. and I'm cashed.

Why am I doing this again? I should be asleep for another 5+ hours. STAY AWAKE. Don't accidentally sleep through the most important day of your life. C'mon, you got this.

But really, what the heck am I supposed to wear? These girls are going to be so perfect and I have nothing cute to wear to stand out.

Can't they make recruitment at a reasonable time? (UGH!!!!) I am not a human right now. Why is it so hot out this early? Why am I sweating already?

I am a fun girl who is confident that any house will want to see what I have to offer. I got this. Be cool.

I'm here to meet some people who share the same values and goals as me, and hopefully find my best friends along the way. Can't be too hard, right?

Wow, it's so loud in this room, I can barely hear the girl I'm talking to. *JUST SMILE* Good job, keep smiling and nodding. Pretend like you can hear them. Oh no, she probably thinks I'm weird for continuously smiling. Okay, relax on the smiling.

Shoot, I think I was supposed to laugh at her poorly executed joke. She's laughing so I guess I should laugh? I still can't hear. This sucks. Stay calm.

Maybe I should talk about things that are important to me. I mean, aren't they here to talk about me? Or maybe I should ask them things about themselves? WHY IS THIS A MIND GAME?

Oh my gosh, she totally gets me. We're talking about something we both share in common. This could not be more perfect. She could be my future sister. WHAT IF SHE IS MY BIG? I LOVE HER ALREADY.

Oh no. That did not just come out of my mouth. I'm done. RIP.

She probably didn't hear me since it's so loud in here... Ugh why did I just say, "I love you," to someone I don't even know?

I just want love, laughs, friends, and ~sisterhood~ Is that too much to ask for? The whole package is so close but yet so far away.

How do I awkwardly say goodbye to them without hugging or shaking hands? Bye? Thanks? I have to go, should work. *Don't say I love you again*

Man, I loved that house. Do I even have to go to any of the other ones? Okay, yeah I know I do but I can't imagine not being in that house.

I'm exhausted. How do those girls do it all day? I could really use a cup of coffee -- or five. Keep on keepin' on though. 10+ more houses to go.

Thank God my day is over. How am I supposed to narrow down my houses now? This process is too stressful; maybe Greek life isn't for me. No, don't be dumb, you can do this.

*Holds up bid card to the sky to try to read through the envelope to see if you got the house you wanted*

3 ... 2 ....1 ..... OPEN YOUR BID CARD AND RUN!!!!!!

I GOT MY NUMBER ONE HOUSE! It was all worth it.

Almost a year ago I ran home to what has become definately one of the best things to happen to me thus far in my life. A huge thank you to my sisters for everything you all have taught me this past year and the amazing friendships and memories that have formed along the way. Babies, we're ready for you! Can't wait to have you guys join your new home! We love you already.

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.
