What Goes Through Every Sorority Girl’s Mind When They Hear The Word 'Mandatory'

Is “I don’t want to go” an appropriate excuse?

What Goes Through Every Sorority Girl’s Mind When They Hear The Word 'Mandatory'

There is nothing worse about being in a sorority than all the required events. You have mixers, philanthropies, initiation, formal meals, recruitment, and worse of all: chapter. All of these events just make every sorority girl want to crawl in bed and never get out. Now don’t get me wrong, there are great things about being in sorority. I’ve made some awesome friends and memories. Plus, the t-shirts are great. However, the word “mandatory" just makes me cringe while about 12 thoughts go through my mind...

1. Does this mean I have to put pants on?

Honestly I would never wear pants if it wasn’t encouraged by society. If I could go to chapter without them, life would be great.

2. Well, there goes my nap.

Nap time is prime time.

3. Is it too late to fake mono?

There is no way to prove that you don’t actually have mono unless someone reaches up and feels your lymphnodes.

4. Hair AND makeup must be done?

Both? The event is literally just one hour. It takes me half that time to get ready. It’s so not worth it. Besides, I don’t know how to contour.

5. Will there be boys?

Yes. I am that sad. This will encourage the aforementioned hair and makeup.

6. Okay but that fraternity is gross. No makeup.

Never mind. No boy is worth marrying in that fraternity. I’m not looking pretty because I don’t even want them to talk to me.

7. Does this event come with a t-shirt link?

You can never have too many t-shirts. Besides, the shirt for this event last year was ugly.

8. Will food be provided?

If I have to go, there better be food. You can’t interrupt my nap time AND my dinner time.

9. Am I required to stay the whole time?

Please say it’s come–and–go. Please, please, please.

10. I could always take the fine…

Stick it to the man! I do what I want.

11. Who am I kidding? I'm broke as heck.

Yeah right. I cant even afford to buy milk and I’ve needed gas for two days now.

12. Let’s get this magical event over with.

*deep breath* Here we go.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
