Why You Should Live In

Why You Should Live In

Living in a Greek house can be tough for introverts, but even the shyest girls can love this experience. Living in the sorority is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, don't pass it up. 

Why living in is better than it may seem. If you asked me a month ago how I felt about living in, my answer would be completely different than what it is right now. I honestly love living in the sorority house. I thought it was going to be annoying, exhausting, and miserable. I should’ve gone into it with a more open mind, because I couldn’t imagine this year without living in.       
Now don’t get me wrong- I wasn’t miserable the first few days of living in, I was just incredibly overwhelmed because I was constantly surrounded by girls during work week and recruitment. Luckily, that’s changed a little bit. I always have someone to hang out with if I want to, but I also have the power to escape for a few hours and be alone. I am more of an introvert, so work week and recruitment freaked me out about the whole living in situation because I thought it was going to be that crazy all year round. Thankfully, it’s not.      
The great thing about living in is how much closer my pledge class has gotten. I’ve talked to girls that I thought I never would, because my sorority has so many different personalities and it’s diffiuclt to get to know everyone. But living in definitely changes things. There’s always someone to grab frozen yogurt with, study with, or go on random adventures with. I’m really thankful that I live in, because these past few weeks have been fantastic. I didn’t really have “FOMO,” (Fear Of Missing Out), until I lived in. But now, because I am so close with everyone, I never want to leave them. I didn’t ever think I would love living in as much as I do. I am so excited to see how the rest of the year pans out, and I plan on enjoying every single minute of it. If you have the opportunity to live in, DO IT!

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.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. 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.
