And just like that, Summer’s coming to a close. I’m drowning in projects and study guides, but soon enough the classes will be done. No more going out every night of the week, no more free shots from bar tender friends, no more pool days, no more rope swings. In just two weeks I’ll be reunited with all of my sisters to practice singing and swaying and talking and walking....
Nose in a Book
Quite possibly my favorite thing about Summer is how much spare time you have to relax and read. Even though I’m taking 10 hours this summer (what was I thinking?) I don’t have football games, parties, dinners, sorority things, and all that craziness to deal with so I have plenty of time to lay by the pool with my nook and with my nose in a book! I’ve already read FOUR books this...
'Twas the week I was home for Summer
Twas’ the week I was home for Summer, and all through Roswell Not a party was thrown; I was in an alcohol dry spell The Taco Mac queso was eaten without a care In hopes that the weight gain just wouldn’t be there I snuggled with my puppies in my old giant bed While visions of sleeping till noon danced in my head And the J Crew coupons were clipped and stacked neatly In hopes Don Don felt the need...

It's the most awful time of the year.
Welp. I walked into Target today and it all hit me… but really how could it not hit you? It’s Valentine’s Day time. Throughout my 21 years of living I have done some very extensive research (aka I read my twitter timeline) and have come up with some shocking statistics. 99.9% of Americans hate this day, and .1% enjoy it and ruin it for everyone. I know what you are thinking....

A look back at Junior Year Fall Semester
After each semester, I like to look back at the ups, the downs, and everything in between. I spent a whole week singing, swaying, screaming, making small talk, lovin on Autism Speaks, and sharing Xi Love. We welcomed 62 amazing women home on Bid Day! Philanthropy Day. Yes we wear aprons. Yes other chapters on campus do it too. The first day of recruitment! Love these girls. I watched...

It's Fall Y'all!!
I absolutely LOVE fall! It’s always been my favorite season! Living in the South, it always seems to take a little longer to hit. We always get these teases of fall, and then back to 80 degree weather. Well my friends, Fall is HERE! And here is what I love about it: I love dressing in the fall! As much as I love wearing norts, chacos, and pocket tees to class everyday (and really, I do!)...

Dear Ex-Boyfriend's friend,
It was already uncomfortable that we have a class together. It’s 290319431 times more awkward when you sit right next to me. There are plenty of seats in the class. We are not friends. Kay. Good talk.
There are some skills that need to be done correctly 100% of the time. Walking...– My Crazy Professor
My Best Friend Stephanie is 21 today!!
I thought I’d tell you all the story of how our wonderful friendship came to be! Stephanie and I are both from Roswell, GA, but we went to different Elementary Schools and lived in different neighborhoods. In 6th grade, our Elementary Schools merged into the same Middle School, and we met! In 7th grade, apparently we had some joke about Superman and sagging our pants? I don’t really...
imeanthatsfine asked: So this is a little creepy, but I was flipping through the newest issue of The Quill and there's a picture of you with your chapter in it! And I definitely recognized your face because of tumblr haha. I just wanted to let you know in case you hadn't seen it yet :) Xi<3
My Professor is so great
Professor: People like the way certain things smell. For example, people really like the smell of cookies so when we were selling our house, I baked cookies... every day... for 3 months
Student: Did it work?
Professor: Well... no. But a lot of people said it smelled good! And they liked the cookies! But no amount of cookies could change the fact that they wanted 4 bedrooms and we were selling 3... But we made a lot of people happy so ya know...

Firstly, I just want to throw something out there. I am fully aware that whatever I post on this blog, the entire world can read. I realize that sometimes I post about some personal things, and admittedly I am trying to post less of these now that more people I know in person are reading my blog. However, if I find a valuable lesson in something, why not share? People seem to be surprised that I...

I’ll be honest, I was a little...
