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. It hasn’t been until recently, and by recently I mean in the past 48 hours, that I’ve gotten excited about graduation. I get to take pictures, I get to see my grandma and I get all sorts of cash from family members to party and spend time with my family. My bff is graduating as well and our families are going to do a brunch together. We're white girls, sooooo brunch is a pretty big deal and cause for massive amounts of excitement. 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...

We, Are Never, Ever, Everrrr Getting Back Together: My Breakup With Corporate America

It’s 10 a.m., and I have yet to put pants on today. Why? Because I don’t have to for the time being. I have embarked on an exciting, terrifying, and fulfilling adventure of working for myself full-time.  How’d we get here? I’m not really sure… this is how I remember it. College ended…which basically meant MY world ended.  Eff you world! During college, I figured I’d get an awesome job at some cool tech company when I graduated. I’d get to work on a ton of cool projects, win them multiple company softball championships, and be CEO in about a year. Not really… but I figured I would at least find a job that didn’t make me miserable. Now, I’m sure 99% of people my age, at some point or another, have said some variation of “I am not meant to work a normal 9-5” or “I just can’t sit at a desk for 8 hours a day for the rest of...

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,...
