A Rewind of my Blog

We've made it, folks. The very last blog post of the semester. 15 weeks, 42 blog posts, 101 comments, 2,841 views,  and countless memories later, we've reached the end. This might not be a big deal to anyone else, but it is to me. Fifteen weeks ago I had little hope for this blog, I'll be honest. It was all so new to me, and it seemed completely impossible to write over 40 unique blog posts that would captivate my audience. I could go on and on, but I'll spare you. I thought for a wrap-up of the whole semester we could do a rewind and relive some of the best moments I've had on this blog.

1. My very first post, introducing myself as a lover of pizza and Tori Kelly. Fifteen weeks later and that is still completely accurate.

2. That time I gave you my most sincere Tinder tips.

3. When I explained my favorite parts of being in Greek Life.

4. The time I interviewed my Japanese friend Shiori for a podcast and she taught me how to speak some Japanese. I've completely forgot everything I've learned. 

5. I took you through my most favorite and least favorite parts about this polar bear palace we call ONU.

6. When I Googled some sketchy phrases and absolutely regretted everything. 

7. I broke down a few notable types of professors/teachers that everyone has had at least once in their life.

8. I taught you how many Kylie Lip Kits and Chipotle bowls you can purchase with $20,000.

9. I live tweeted the ONU Homecoming parade.

10. I literally shot and edited a video teaching you how to do the hard-whip and actually uploaded it to YouTube. It has over 130 views and I regret nothing. 

11. Introduced you to my new favorite band Us the Duo and one of their songs. 

12. Talked about my all-time favorite artist, Tori Kelly.

13. Told you what I was thankful for regarding social media.

14. Showed my favorite pictures from a photo shoot I did with friends over Thanksgiving break.

15. Took you through some of 2016's best internet memes.

AND NOW WE'RE HERE! It wasn't always easy and it wasn't always fun, but in the end I thoroughly enjoyed it and I'm extremely proud of myself. I cannot thank you enough for supporting me throughout this whole semester. Every view, every comment, every tweet, it means the world to me. If you do enjoy my blogs you'll be happy to know I'm going to continue blogging next semester! I'll be taking a little hiatus during the holiday break so I can recollect and relax, but I'll be back come spring semester. Thank you always for the support, see you next month.

5 Things

If you've never bought in to anything I've said on this platform, or any platform for that matter, please try and dissolve what I'm about to say.

I'm full of insecurities, always have been. My face is too round. My love handles poke out. Arms are so flabby I could probably fly away. Acne comes and goes and reminds me that I have pores, too. Sometimes my eyebrows look more like stepsisters than twins. Bigfoot and I could share shoes. The mole on my nose isn't always a welcome decoration. Scars from past accidents cover my legs and bring back the memories of learning how to ride a bike. Most days my curls resemble an unruly afro, not the cute kind of Shirley Temple curls I once had.

Lately, my insecurities have consumed me. Every time I looked in the mirror, a frown followed. I tugged and poked at my body for hours. But today, today I woke up and felt new. I was a different person. The person in the mirror was happy, glowing, beautiful. My hair twisted and turned jus…

Planning my Funeral

No, the title is not clickbait, and yes, it is true. Hear me out. I'm not suicidal. I'm not terminally ill, that I know of. But I do know that days are limited here on this precious planet we call home and I've become increasingly aware of that.

I got to thinking a few days ago about my own funeral. Funerals are typically sad situations, and for good reason, yes. But I don't want my funeral to be sad. I'm only nineteen and haven't written a will, and while I don't plan on it any time soon, this is my unofficial, official will. Although, a bit differently. You see, I don't want to tell you what I leave to everyone in my life, I want to tell you what I hope I've left behind. And I want to tell you how I want my celebration of life to be.

First of all, I hope my life had purpose. I don't care what, and not really how either, but I hope I left a legacy. I hope everyone who knew me knew that all I ever wanted was to make them laugh, or smile. I hope …

Rush Rho Gam

Two sorority posts back to back, who am I???

Last week on campus we finished up a week of formal recruitment. This year instead of being involved with normal recruitment, I served as a Rho Gamma for my chapter. Being a Rho Gamma means that you de-affiliate from your chapter. During this time I wasn't allowed to wear any letters, affiliated merchandise, or tell people who didn't already know, which chapter I was in. I couldn't also be seen in public with a lot of my friends who were affiliated members, which was the most difficult part.
As a Rho Gamma you get paired up with a floor in one of the residence halls, and help guide the girls on that floor through formal recruitment. I had the honor of having the floor I lived in my freshman year, which was extremely nostalgic and rewarding for me. Every week we would have meetings with these girls, and walk them to rounds on campus, gradually getting to know them and love them. This part of the experience was simultaneously easy…
