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!

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?

African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
