Mom, Dad…Take Me Back!

Mom, Dad...I took you for granted. I took it all for granted. And now, I'm publicly asking you to take me back. I'll move back in, I'l be the best room mate ever, you won't even know I'm there. Please, PLEASE take me back. We're all stupid. Like, real dumb, myself included. What were we thinking? Moving out sounded so good. We had our freedom in college, we lived with friends, it was great. No way will I ever live with my parents again after college I thought. Then, I lived with them for almost 2 years, which at the time seemed like it was an eternity. UGH, it was TERRIBLE! My mom waited on me hand and foot, she cooked anything I wanted for me, it was like there was a 24/7 in-house laundromat, and everything was free. I repeat...IT WAS AWFUL I barely made it out of that 5-star resort alive. I've gotta get out of here. I can't take...

Hey, What’s Your Major?

Katie is a 5th year senior currently finishing up her victory lap at The University of Georgia. She has battled anxiety, restraining her sarcasm, and being too short to ride roller coasters her entire life. Take it away, Katie! Editor's note: Kinda intense/deep post, we recommend listening to the soothing sounds of Enya while reading.

Plus, I’m not going to have any more exam-induced break-outs, thank god. It’s all going to be great. Oh but here’s the thing, aside...

Adult College

I live in Atlanta... specifically, Buckhead. In my opinion, Buckhead is the strangest place on the face of the earth. I love it, but it is another planet. It is ADULT COLLEGE. For me college was made up of a few different categories; class, intramural sports, going out, and napping. When I look at those categories, not much has changed. Class is now work. I still play in numerous men’s leagues around Atlanta that my friends and I take way too seriously. I go out Friday, Saturday, and some Thursdays pretty much every week. Unfortunately, I don’t usually have time for naps like I did in college, tragic. Fraternities and sororities are pretty much still around minus the letters. It’s terrifying to think that I go to as many theme parties now as I did in college. I still frequently hear words like shitshow, slampiece, hammered, wasted, schwasted, and many more catchphrases I probably shouldn’t. I’m even guilty of saying some of them. Personally,...
