What To Expect When You First Move In

It may be crazy, but you're in for the time of your life!

What To Expect When You First Move In

Every college freshman has waited for it: Move-In week. You spent all summer long working, saying goodbye to friends and family, and buying things in anticipation for your brand new shiny life to begin. But what happens when the chaos of move in day ends and everything is organized and in place?

1. You Attend Social Events Hosted By Your Dorm In Hopes To Make Friends.

Human Bingo, Tye-Dyeing shirts, Pizza Parties... You get the drill. The first week you're always around people and you're bound to find that one group where everyone just kind of clicks.

2. There's Always That One Kid That Receives A Nickname Within The First Week Of Being On Campus.

In my dorm however, that's the one kid who religiously plays Forza in the first floor lounge of the dorm on the Xbox One. His Nickname? Forza Guy*

*- Subject to change depending on whomever is speaking of him.

3. It's Only Been A Week And The Sight Of Pizza Is Already Repulsive.

You have already eaten pizza 5 out of the 7 days in a week. You are also 105% certain that if you see another doughy pie with tomato sauce and cheese you will throw it in the trash.

4. You Most Likely Haven't Slept Well In Over 48 Hours So Why Even Try?

"Sleep is for the weak!" You cry as you fall asleep on the sofa in the first floor lounge while Forza guy plays well... Forza.

5. The Best Part Is That Right Now Campus Is Not Super Busy So That's Good.

You can actually get around and do things without running into a massive herd of students in the middle of a courtyard! Good for you!

6. Syllabus Week Is Coming Up And You Still Don't Know Where Anything Is.

Where's that classroom again? Oh you have to take 4 staircases, 3 elevators, and a horse to get there.

7. Even Amongst The Chaos, You're Having The Time Of Your Life.

College may be new and crazy, but among the ups and downs you are definitely having the best time of your life and sharing it with those around you.

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
