Great post! I really liked the way you mapped everything out. I never thought of it but all of these “visionaries” have all five of these things in common. I could never expect to measure up to these individuals greatness, but I would enjoy seeing how far I could make it.
Great post! In today’s world social media is a very real part of every aspect of our world. From business to social life it seems being “Liked” is a necessity. The only problem is when people just start taking everything way too seriously. Stick to what your values are and don’t try too hard.
This is just awful. What happened to the days when people were civil? As disturbing as this all is I hope Syracuse finds a way to handle this much better than Penn State did. The last thing anyone wants is more students rioting. One wrong move and you’re bound to go the route of PSU.
Title: St. Louis Blues
By: Andrew Burton
As a Blackhawks I always enjoy the little rivalry that we’ve had against each other. I always thought that the Blues had consistent, solid players. They never seemed to be able to seal the deal quite right. I think the new coach will do you guys well. Hey maybe now you guys will actually be a challenge to the Blackhawks.
Title: Vice President
By: Jake Allen
Hey man that’s great. I always enjoy knowing leaders in the Greek community. I never knew you guys have two vice presidents. It’s funny how fraternities are different in ways like that. I’m glad to see someone else post a blog about the good part of the Greek system as well.
Title: Things I love about fall
By: Nicole Gill
I agree, Fall is by far the best season. Everything about it is great. I love the trees and the weather. I love the football and the hockey. But most of all I love Halloween, it’s my favorite holiday of all. Plus it’s still warm enough to be outside doing things.
My freshman year I joined a Fraternity here on campus. Now a lot of people out there do not understand this system. Most think it’s all about partying and drinking and god knows what other clichés that have been attached to Greek life. Well let me tell you, it’s not, I repeat it’s not. In fact Greek life as a whole is so much more than that. Now I’m not going to sit here and tell you we’re all straight edge kids who are in bed by 10:30 on Saturday and at first morning service Sunday morning, but quite frankly let’s be real, who is like that. The fact of the matter is all the stuff you hear about the Greek system makes up at most 10% of the things we do. The Greek system is about brotherhood and sisterhood. It’s about making you a better person and a better leader. It’s about preparing you for the real world. It’s about helping others. But most importantly it’s about having friends that will stick by you for the rest of your life. Sure we pay to be a part of it, but in actuality most of the money we give goes towards insurance to cover ourselves because of all these insane clichés people have come up with. So next time you want to blame the Greek system, think about this.
In this economy, jobs are hard to come by. So what do you do when you’re looking for a new job? Well there are a few easy things to do. First off think of things you are good at. Have you worked somewhere before? Are you good with people? Are you very organized? Things like that can make or break you in the search for a job. Next, consider the type of work you are going for do you want to work where you talk to people a lot? Or do you want to work somewhere where you barely talk to anyone? Do you want to work night or days? Next, you need to get your timing down perfectly. Businesses hire more during holidays and summer. More importantly though, make sure the place is actually hiring. Lastly, when all else fails, you need to broaden your horizons. I have found that most of the jobs I didn’t want because of my lack of interest or knowledge in the field have actually turned out to be amusing. So the one thing you really have to remember is to keep an open mind about opportunity and most importantly don’t get discouraged and give up. Happy hunting!
As I believe I’ve mentioned before I decided to get a puppy over the summer. Now Izzy is great, and I wouldn’t trade her for the world. However I have noticed more and more how hard it is to take care of her while juggling school work and a social life. One of the first things I was told by friends with dogs is “don’t do it.” But I thought to myself I’m responsible enough to handle it, and it turns out I really am. The problem is that what I didn’t realize was the sacrifices that go along with those responsibilities. There are a lot of times where I come home from a long day at work or school and she is sitting there excited as ever to see me, and I love that. But at the same time if I’m about to leave to go hang out with friends she gives me puppy dog eyes and makes me feel guilt ridden the whole night. I guess my point is that even though I don’t regret my decision, I don’t think I would ever suggest to anyone else that they should get a pet in college, because as great as they are, sometimes you just aren’t ready for that.
This evening I came home to find my room, my clothes, and my dog covered in glitter. Most college students and “The Office” Enthusiasts know that pranks are funny, as long as you’re not the one pranked on. Now I’m a pretty big jokester, I’ve pranked plenty of people and have even had the misfortune of being in a full-fledged prank war. This time around it’s pretty clear that a prank war is inevitable, but my friends and I have all gotten to the point where rules are necessary in order for this to go over well. If you’re interested in starting a prank war, my best suggestion to you is to strike first and suggest rules later. If you end up in an all-out fair game prank war, first off, I’m sorry for you, however second off try and try again to establish ground rules. Now every great prankster knows that pranks have their limits and if you cross them then you’re probably going to get it worse so your best bet is to make sure you don’t get in too deep and that you keep everything you value nice and safe. Lastly, every great prank war must come to an end, know when to call it quits and come to a peace. So for everyone out there, Happy Pranking!
