Post-Valentine's Day

A week past Valentine’s day and everyone is still wistfully loving that giant teddy bear and watching their flowers slowly die. Don’t get me wrong, I love my flowers and wish they could continue to stay alive, but there are still a few things that I wish were said to me.

However, I have finally come to the realization that not all of us are dating “Nicolas Sparks” romantic guys. So for some giggles here are a few things that no guy will say to you, ever. 

1. No guys will agree to be a winged animal just because randomly decided to. I mean birds are dirty. 

2. Zac Efron will never hunt you down just because he found some picture of you in the desert. He will then not fall helplessly in love with you.

3. Millions of people stare at the moon, however, Channing Tatum will never be thinking about you when he stares at it. It is not reality. 

4. No guy will fall in love with you even after you told him not to. He will then not try with all his might to make every dream you have a reality. 

5. Lastly, no one will ever profess their undying love for you in a more passionate way then this. It cannot be achieved. 

Happy Happy Post-Valentine’s Day everyone. Hope every one is still in the holiday bliss, even if you do not live in a Nicolas Sparks movie.

What is your favorite love quote?

Living in a TSM World

Living the “frat” and “srat” lifestyle is the newest phenomenon that is not only sweeping through college campuses, but also taking over social media through websites such as TSM and TFM.

Sororities are absolutely wonderful organizations that have the ability to empower young women and are highly involved in charity work. However, they also have the ability to kill your vocabulary and give you unrealistic views of life.

For instance, what am I suppose do you when I graduate, and there is not a t-shirt offered for every minor life event?

Also, how am I expected to get ready for a party without looking through 100 closets and having my hair and makeup done for me? I no longer understand how I ever survived having personal space…because living with 100 girls, you are never alone.

When you rush or “go through recruitment” you are not only signing up for a sisterhood, but you are also joining a lifestyle. You are joining a lifestyle that is obsessed with Lilly Pulitzer, monograms, bows, football, themed parties (because why not celebrate Halloween every Thursday night), and most of all obsessed with each other…and pizza.

Luckily it doesn’t matter how much pizza you eat because no matter how small you are you will undoubtedly order a large or extra large t-shirt every time…because who wants to look like they are wearing pants anyway? The answer is no sorority girl ever.

Another amazing thing happens when you join a sorority, you gain an entire new vocabulary of words that you never knew existed because they aren’t located in the dictionary. Totes (totally), darty (party during the day that usually occurs on Stop days or snow days), sorority squat, frat (as an adjective to descried an individual), and adorbs (adorable but said either sarcastically or in a high pitched squeal).

However, no matter that you will suddenly feel an urge to wear your best pearls with your favorite shacker shirt or to “throw what you know” every time someone takes a picture, you will also develop lifelong friends, who you might at one point in your life begin to believe are your actual soul mates.

Are you loving living in a TSM world?

Defying the Laws of Physics

The beginning of February marks two major things: people scrambling to make Valentine’s Day or Anti-Valentine’s Day plans, and February is also the time many people abandon their New Year’s resolutions. 

In college, however, February marks the time of year that everyone is done with Syllabus week and classes have truly begun. The second semester can be tough, and is still just as busy as the first…even without football season, which seems impossible.  Luckily I stumbled across a venn diagram that helps put life into perspective. 

Here are quick tips on how to defy the laws of physics.

1.     Study. Study. Study: go out at night but do all studying and homework during the day, so when you go out you do not have worry about anything and you can have more fun. Also try leave at a somewhat reasonable time so you won’t look like a zombie the next morning, but if you don’t just buy really good concealer and 30 minute short naps are lifesavers and will make you feel wide awake.
2.    Get a workout partner: Make sure the person you workout with will push you and make you go everyday. When you workout you will feel more energized and will provide a productive study break.
3.    Choose Wisely: In college, Thursday is treated more like a weekend night than Friday.  So go out on Thursday’s, it is fun and only acceptable for the four years you are in college. However, going out on Thursday when you have a test on Friday is not the best idea. So, pick your nights wisely and DO NOT go out even when your friend begs saying “you will never remember the test but you will remember this night in 20 years.” This is false, I guarantee if you don’t remember failing a test in 20 years you will remember in 4 months when grades come out at the end of semester. Just don’t be dumb.
4.    8ams: Don’t do it. 8am classes will kill your social life, your sleep schedule, and pretty much your entire life. Coming from a girl who had an 8am everyday last semester…just don’t do it no matter how much of a morning person you are.

Good luck achieving the near impossible.
