OK, so I recognize that going out and having fun is a good time — BUT, I believe that it is entirely possible to have just as much fun (if not, MORE) staying in. So, put on a movie, jump in your pajamas, and let's look at 10 reasons why staying in is better than going out.

1. You can wear your pajamas.

Giphy

Rough day? Rough week? Make it a little bit better by jumping into your pajamas the second you get home! It's your night in, and it's your chance to be as comfy and cozy as can be.

2. No one will judge you if you eat an entire pizza.

Giphy

Think you shouldn't eat that entire pizza (even though you definitely could)? Think again. In the words of Jennifer Lawrence, "where's the pizza!?"

3. On that note, you CAN eat an entire pizza.

Giphy

AND NO ONE IS GOING TO STOP YOU! Shall I say it again? You do you, and you have fun on your night in.

4. Messy hair, don't care?

Giphy

Ready to put your hair in a bun after a long day? Do it. Ready to take your hair out of a bun or ponytail? Do it.

5. You're saving so much money (besides that pizza).

Giphy

No money will be spent on movie tickets or expensive dinners at restaurants (excluding the pizza). You're basically treating yourself and saving money. What a deal!

6. You can finally catch up on all those Netflix shows you've heard about.

Giphy

Sit down in front of that TV (or laptop) because it's time to catch up on all those Netflix shows that you've been missing out on.

7. You can do a little self-care.

Giphy

Put on a face mask, paint your nails, and doing whatever you want to take care of yourself. Make yourself feel BEAUTIFUL on your night in.

8. You can test out all those pins you've pinned on Pinterest.

Giphy

Been wanting to try a tasty new recipe you saw on Pinterest? Now's your chance. The world is your oyster!

9. Party of one? Don't you mean party of FUN?

Giphy

Who says you can't have fun in a party of one? Not YOU! No matter how many people (if any) stay in with you, you can always have a good time.

10. Or, you can have a SLEEPOVER!

Giphy

Do you have a few friends who also want to take part in this fun and frugal time? Have a sleepover! There's no better way to stay in than by staying in with your best friends!

No matter how you chose to spend your night, you can rest assured knowing that — if you would rather — you will ALWAYS have plenty of good reasons to stay in.

The ABCs Of Greek Life

Greek Life From A to Z
2541
views

When you enter into Greek life, it's like having to learn a whole new language, but it's a language that everyone comes to love. So here's the Greek alphabet, from Alpha Chi to Zeta.

A is for Alum

The members of our chapter who have graduated. These members are a range of ages and can participate in all kinds of alumna events.

B is for Bid Day

The best day of the year when our chapters get to accept a new pledge class of members.

C is for Chapter

Our weekly meetings where we learn about sisterhood and philanthropy events, date parties, etc., as well as take care of any sort of chapter business.

D is for Date Parties

Some of the best nights of the year are getting dressed up with your friends and your dates and attending date parties.

E is for Executive Board

The people that make the chapter run smoothly. The chapter wouldn't function without your president, VP, finance, standards, etc.

F is for Fried Friday

The best day of the week at the house. When the chefs cook up chicken, mozzarella sticks, fried pickles, french fries, corn dogs, fried mac n cheese, fried corn, fried green tomatoes and whatever else your heart desires.

G is for Greek Week

One of the most competitive and most fun weeks of the year. Spent playing dodgeball, whiffle ball, doing dance-offs, and more!

H is for Hand Sign

No matter what sign it is, we love to throw what we know!

I is for Initiation

The day that we get to cross from new member to active member of our chapter.

J is for Just Here So I Don't Get Fined

As much as we love to hang out with our sisters, sometimes life gets in the way and we wish we had more free time. Sometimes we're only attending an event so that we don't get fined.

K is for Kick-Off

Of course, all college students love football but game day is something special when you're Greek. From getting ready with your sisters to eating at the house to tailgating with the fraternities, it's all a part of the game day experience when you're Greek.

L is for Letters

Our identity within the Greek community.

M is for Mom

Our house mom can never take the place of our real mom but she is great for lending an ear and helping solve any issues that come up within the sorority.

N is for Norts

Part of the "sorority girl uniform." We can't get enough of our Nike shorts

O is for Organized

With constantly running between classes, chapter meetings, and other events, you become extremely organized when you join a Greek organization.

P is for Philanthropy

One of the biggest reasons many people choose to go Greek. We love to spend our time, money and energy towards a cause that's close to our heart such as Ronald McDonald House, Make a Wish Foundation and CASA.

Q is for Queso

Okay, maybe a bit of a stretch but it's true! Ordering Fuzzy's to the sorority house or going out to eat at Moe's or Chuy's are not uncommon activities. We love chips and queso!

R is for Recruitment

The craziest week of the year where the chapter decides which PNM's would be the best fit for the chapter and new members run home to your chapter at the end of the week!

S is for Sisterhood

What a sorority is really all about. The friends you make in your sorority are some of the most interesting and genuine girls you'll meet!

T is for T-Shirt Tuesday

The one weeknight that tons of people go out. Whether you're at Harry's bar or Rounders, T-shirt Tuesday is sure to be a blast.

U is for Unique Experience

No two people have the same experience with Greek life. Whether you're the most involved person, just in it for the sisterhood, or you're fairly uninvolved, your experience will be different than everyone else's. You get out what you put in, as the saying goes.

V is for Vineyard Vines

One of many popular brands among sorority women and fraternity men alike.

W is for Wine Wednesday

Another fan favorite of the week is Wine Wednesday. Whether you're celebrating at Gallette's or from the comfort of your own dorm or apartment, Wine Wednesday is awesome.

X is for XL T-Shirts

Another part of the "sorority girl uniform". The bigger the T-shirt, the comfier and more confident you'll be. It's science.

Y is for Youth

Many philanthropies work with children, which is great because we love to spend time with the youth in and around Tuscaloosa!

Z is for Zero Sleep

When you're taking 14-18 credits, working, in a Greek organization and you're involved with several other organizations it's easy to see why we never get our full 8 hours of sleep. We're always going and we're fueled by coffee and a passion for whatever it is we're doing on and around campus.

The Struggles Of Acting On Emotion Versus Logic

If not handled in a healthy way, you could hurt someone you care about.

418

As human beings, we will always have reactionary responses when faced with conflict, action, or certain circumstances. It is up to us to make the choice of how we react, but based on who you are, you are either more emotional or logical.

As a person who acts off emotion in the moment, it can do more harm than good if you don't know how to control it. It can cause you to lash out at someone you care about, say things you may regret later, or only look at the present moment instead of seeing how this could affect the future.

All of this being said, acting off emotion can be good too. It means that you are more empathetic than the average person. Having empathy means that you have the capability to understand the emotions and feelings of other people. When an emotional person is in a healthy and good state of mind, they can handle conflict very well, and be there for other people.

For someone who tends to act off logic, this can look much different for you. Using logic to deal with life can make you come off as more stable, however, it can cause the following you to not be able to emotionally understand someone else, be defensive, and be unable to express how you are really feeling through words or actions.

I have had many interactions with people who are more logical rather than emotional. They handle stress very well, however, they can come off as rude or as if they don't care about you when in reality they just are unable to express how they feel. If not handled well, this kind of interaction can end friendships, partnerships, and relationships.

Every personality is different, but anyone can fall into one of these two categories. People who are more on the emotional side need to take reign of their emotions and use this gift of empathy that they possess to help impact those around them and help other people feel heard and understood. On the other hand, people who fall into the logical side need to be able to healthily express how they feel so they can get their point across in the kindest way and help others to see their side of things in a way that makes sense.
