10 Things We've All Seen In The Pit When We Were Just Trying To Mind Our Business And Get To Class
Alexis Byrd

Imagine: you have class in five minutes, you've just emerged from the Student Stores, and the Pit lies before you, vast and impassable. People, tables, tents...everywhere.

Here are a few specific obstacles you may encounter.

1. A Pit Preacher

Giphy

Not the Pit Preacher, but still notable. Whoever it happens to be at the time, he's loud.

2. Gary

Giphy

What is the Pit without the Pit Preacher? Lost.

3. A Capella Groups

Giphy

Shout out to the Achordants for being hilarious—one time when they were selling tickets, they yelled, "We're UNC's number one a capella group...alphabetically!" I lost it.

4. A Bake Sale

Giphy

Usually for a sorority or some kind of honors society. I hope they have enough funding.

5. Not A Drainage System

Giphy

Oh, is the Pit flooded again? It must have been sprinkling again this morning. Should've brought my diving equipment.

6. CUAB

Giphy

I have to include CUAB here because it is an omnipresent entity. Somehow, CUAB is everywhere.

7. The Comp Sci Table

Giphy

Those kids are the Insomnia Cookies plug. I'm not mad at it.

8. The Pit-Sitters

Giphy

You just need to cut through the Pit so you can be on your way to Greenlaw or Chapman or something, but fellow students are determined to form an impenetrable wall of sitting bodies all the way around it. That's fine, I guess.

9. A Line

Giphy

Inevitably there'll be some table giving out free snacks or something, and a million people are willing to wait an hour for, like, Pelicans.

10. Some Student Organization

Giphy

It's a different one every day, and they're always trying to bribe you to join. Example:

"Here, have a free [cookie/pen/sandwich/pin/sticker], you just have to sign your soul over to our group until you graduate. :)"

*gasp* what if the comp sci kids are just after our souls?

I've been giving it some thought, and I think the best avoidance strategy when some random Pit person approaches you is to yell, "Hold on one second!" in your best South Road crossing guard voice.

Happy trails!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

12938

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
