If there’s one thing we all have in common it is that we’ve all been through awkward moments. They are unavoidable and inevitable. Here are just some awkward moments that we have all for SURE experienced:
17. Calling out your friend’s name multiple times, only to find out it’s not them.
16. When your friend’s parent is yelling at them and you’re right there to experience it all.
15. When your dog takes a s*** and you have to continue the walk holding a bag of doo-doo.
14. When you say “bye” to someone and then up realizing ya’ll are heading the same direction.
It’s not easy being an Asian-American college student. Trust me, I know from experience. I guess I shouldn’t say it’s too bad being Asian-American on campus, but I have come across some struggles of being one that’s for sure:
17. Being asked by your friends: “How do you say *insert random word* in your culture?”
16. Your college friends coming to you for math problems.
15. Your college friends introducing you to other people as, “The Asian.”
14. Low-key judging the campus’s rice because it’s not as good as your mother’s.
Struggling to figure out a way in surviving college? Well, look no more! I have done some major people-watching (weird, I know) on my campus and here are just a few things I’ve noticed that people should just not do in college:
17. Sitting in the way back.
Seriously, what are you going to learn from sitting in the way back? You’re going to get distracted by so many things by sitting in the back–trust me. I mean, don’t you get tired of looking at Jerry’s butt crack all the time? Just sit up front. You won’t see any butt cracks sitting up front.
16. Eating by yourself.
Personally, I coul just never eat alone. I don’t know why, but it’s always better to eat with a group of friends. You are basically committing social suicide by eating alone. That’s all I have to say.
15. Being vulnerable to peer pressure when it comes to illegal activities.
Welcome to college. A place where you will 99.9989% get exposed to things you’ve never done before: one being that of involving illegal activies that could possibly be of the dangerous kind. Don’t think just because people you know do it that you should do it too. Be different and most importantly be strong.
Being a sorority girl has its perks, but then it does have a few downsides. I’m talking about the ridiculous, untrue things people ask or say to us. Not sure what I mean? Check this out:
17. “You must only care about looks during formal recruitment.”
Appearance matters but it doesn’t play a major factor into deciding who we want.
16. “I heard you guys hate the other sororities. Like you don’t talk to them.”
15. “Oh, so you’re in a sorority. This means you sleep around then.”
I mean, we sleep around with food. Is that what you meant?
14. “Which one’s this?” *starts doing some weird hand symbol that doesn’t even exist*
No. Like what are you even doing there.
Ahhh, aren’t our friends just amazing? No, REALLY. We all have them and we all love them. Here is a list of things we are commonly known to say to our friends (based off of my own experience):
17. “Go check your Insta–I just tagged you as my #WCW
16. “I just posted a status–you should go like it!”
15. “Hey, wanna go get food?”
14. “Do I look homeless? Be honest.”
Let’s get one thing straight: it’s hard being a woman. Men will never be able to understand the struggles we have to face. Here are just a few of them:
10. Giving Birth. Giving LIFE.
9. Our Aunt Flo that visits every month.
8. Getting ready in the morning.
7. Eyebrows. Yes, eyebrows. They have to seriously be on point.
6. Shaving. Everything.
It’s not a surprise that Greek Life gets a lot of bad representation in the media and out. To lighten some of the tensions here is a list of things that you might have heard about Greek Life that is ENTIRELY false. Take a look:
10. We “buy” our friends.
This one gets said a lot and I find it pretty hilarious because it’s not true. We form friendship, we do not buy it. The dues we pay go towards national fees, chapter operating costs, and our social functions.
9. We’re cliquey.
Yeah, we like to hang around with each other a lot. So? This does not mean we’re cliquey. If you just tried to get to know us you would understand.
8. All we do is party.
No. A lot of us value education. We are still regular college students. Just because a few of us go out a few times doesn’t mean that’s ALL we do. Many of us like to keep each other grounded and even form study groups together because that’s what college is mostly about.
7. We’re a cult.
This one is my favorite. Not because it is true, because it is ridiculous. Like, OHHHH YAH we drink blood! Haha! You got us!….No.
6. We’re all spoiled little rich kids.
Some of us are friggin’ broke. Just because we’re in Greek Life doesn’t mean we’re all preppy, little, rich kids driving around in our nice set of wheels…Although that would be nice.
It’s not a surprise that we all have friends. They are our rock. The are our comfort. If you really think about it, have you ever asked yourself what types of friends you have? Have you ever wondered if they are the BEST types of friends? Check out this list to find out:
10. The Joker
They always get you laughing and peeing your pants.
9. The Mamma Bird
Literally, they can be your second mom. Or your third mom. They just have those motherly characteristics that we all need at times to keep us leveled.
8. The Bookworm Motivation
Sometimes, they don’t even need to say anything to you. If you see them studying or hear about them studying, it makes you want to start studying just a little more. They are our motivation.
7. The Free-Spirited
This friend likes to make you step out of your comfort zone. God, what an inspiration. We all need a friend like this one for sure.
6. The Dirty-Minded One
The “that’s what she said” type. They just always get you smiling and know when inappropriate times are necessary.
As most of you may not know I live in Wisconsin. Yeah, yeah, I know pretty lame. Although it’s not one of the most exciting places to live, it can have some benefits to it. Just for funsies (yes, it is a word) I thought it’d be nice if I just stated out some pros and cons of living in WI. Enjoy!
10. CON: The weather is as bipolar as you.
9. PRO: Summerfest, “The world’s largest music festival.”
8. CON: Smells like cow. Everywhere.
7. PRO: Madison’s State Street (Great for shopping around!)
6. CON: Flat. Only a few mountains for exploring, the rest is flat. Like paper. I know, I know, boooooring.
Coming from a basic b**ch herself, this list just may be pretty accurate for those of you who may have always wondered if you’re a basic b**ch too. Enjoy!
10. “This is the perfect Instagram.”
You could literally be anywhere and then think to yourself of how it would be the perfect Instagram–whether it’s of a plant, the sky, or you. You Instagram the crap out of that shiz.
9. “Oh my god, I have to Snapchat this.”
At a friggin’ cool party? You Snapchat it. Going out with the girls? You Snapchat it. Working out? You Snapchat it. Peeing? You Snapchat it…Just kidding. I think.
8. “Who’s that b**ch he’s with?”
Got an eye candy? Every girl he’s with you want to know who she is. You think or say this every freaking time he’s with a different girl.
7. “I hate you.”
Ahhh, the typical replacement words for “I love you.”
6. “I just want to drop out and become a stripper.”
Seriously, haven’t we all said this at least once in our life when we just can’t deal with school anymore?
Yes, yes, yes, we all have life goals. But did you ever think that maybe we all have similar goals we want to reach in life? See for yourself!
10. Have a banging job
9. Find a hot significant other
8. Have lots and lots of puppies
7. Learn how to f***ing cook like Betty Crocker
6. Travel insanely
You come to realize a lot of things about yourself once you join a sorority. Things you were annoyed by or you thought you’d never do all of a sudden become natural to you. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Take a look:
10. You get used to wearing heels.
Yup, you know what I’m talking about: Pin Day. The day we all must dress to success, and wearing heels from class to class becomes natural!
9. You get used to shouting. A lot.
Chanting, shouting from room to room, celebrating mixers–all that good studd that involves a lot of shouting. It becomes a part of your lifestyle.
8. You get used to having your stuff shared.
This becomes a natural part of life because everything that is yours (shoes, clothes, accessories) ends up belonging to 20+ other people too. Remember: sharing is caring.
7. You get used to traveling in a pack.
You go to breakfast in a pack, walk to classes in a pack, study in a pack, go take showers as a pack–you get the idea. It’s like we’re all conjoined with one another.
6. You get used to having an excessive amount of jewelries.
You have to dress up a lot, so of course you would end up buying a lot of jewelries! They spice up the outfits.
