College — the best four years of your life. That’s what everyone tells you, right? Maybe not.
The world has a bit of a love hate relationship with Greek Life — there are always disagreement on how to view Greek Life and its processes. But if there is one thing the Greek community can agree on no matter affiliation, it’s that the component of a lineage (lin, fam, etc.) is one of the most rewarding aspects of the whole experience. To the outside world we may appear to be blindly loving, shallow, puffy painting psychos, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
There is a lot of controversy that surrounds the restaurant industry- what workers deserve, the ethics of tipping or the true nature of the work. However, in all of my experiences since I joined the workforce, I feel that my time working in restaurants prepared me for the future better than any other job could have.
As a 20-something, I feel it is our unwritten responsibility to try anything and everything that comes our way. From crazy new food trends (I mean really, what the hell is “artesian” water?) to the people we hook up with, 20-something life is all about the experiences you gather along the way, right? While I believe this is true in non-committal experiences, like tasting a new dish at a restaurant or traveling somewhere remote, when it comes to the more permanent aspects of life, there are times when a picky attitude comes in handy.
