Waiting For Your Big As Told By "Friends"

No One Told You Life Was Gonna Be This Way.

Waiting For Your Big As Told By "Friends"

The day has arrived: the day you sit down with the other new members of your sorority and you pick a big. This day is a day that girls in Greek life anticipate the moment they accept their bids; however, there's one problem: the torture, the waiting, and the torture of waiting.

1. When You're Told You Have To Wait A Month To Find Out Who Your Big Is

I'm not a patient person, so hearing that I have to wait SO long to meet my lifelong best friend is probably going to kill me.

2. When You Have The Sudden Realization That You May Not Get The Big You Picked

What if they didn't pick me back? What if they hate me? Ohmygod I'm gonna die.

3. When Your Big Finally Messages You! (From An Anonymous Number/Page)

You finally get a message from your Big and of COURSE it's anonymous. You can't know who they are just yet, but you're one step closer.

4. When You Start To Realize That You're Really Starting To Love Your Big

ohmygod she's so great I'm gonna cry.

5. When It's Reached The Point Where You Think You Can't Wait Any Longer


6. Then Finally, The Day Comes: Reveal Day.



*see number six*

8. You Realize How You'll Always Love Your Big

You'll love her forever. Maybe even 5ever (that means more than forever).

9. And How You'll Never Let Your Big Live Down The Torture They've Caused You For The Past Month

"Remember that time you tortured me for a month straight? You owe me."

10. You Realize She's The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread: She's Your Lobster.

11. And You'll Probably Spend The Rest Of The Night Hugging Your Big.

Here's to you, Biggie.

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.

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.
