Which El Tabler Are You?
You're Phoebe Buffay! Put on your best wig and have a GIRL'S NIGHT!!
You got Bhav! You love the humans in your life more than anything and are either incessantly telling them or worrying that you're overwhelming them. You run on coffee, Spanish music, soul to souls, and a little heartbreak. On your best days, you smell like lavender. You love to plan but also love spontaneity, so all your plans are written in pencil until they're actually completed (at which point you copy them over in a 0.38 pt Muji Pen). You have a lot of emotions but its okay because your name literally means "strong emotions." You love your friends' birthdays more than anything but hate your own. Find people who will listen to your stories, be spontaneous with you, and value your insane heart and then hold onto them tight- you won't be sorry you did.
You are comfort over style, but sometimes your comfort is stylish. You can be found in El Table writing poems about regressions on paper towels and/or crying about graduation. You LOVE your friends, but you’d never let them know that. You have a soft spot for adventure, chosen family, and girls with pretty laughter. You rarely panic, even when you probably should. You usually have an “I have no idea what’s going on” look on your face, and it’s mostly correct.
You're fucking weird. I don't know how you got here. You're probably the most random person in all your friend groups. Nobody knows why you're their friends but they love you. You fit in everywhere, but you really fit in nowhere. Ok that sounds a little depressing, but aren't you also a little proud of how weird you are? Like no one is you, you know? Just you are you. Keep doing you. I'm here for you.
You got Kelsey! You scored 80% neurotic on a personality test, and your friends agreed with the results a little too quickly. When you're not in El in the morning, it's because you've made your own pour over coffee in your room and are scrolling through your instagram, planning ur next post. You are less known for your love of funk music that can get you dancing no matter what mood your in. Your YouTube top suggested videos are soft river sounds and cute puppy videos. You simply could not ask for more in life.
Your favorite things in the world are good music, overpriced food, and rare moments of spiritual enlightenment. When you're not frantically researching some aspect of East Asian culture for an overdue paper, you can be found reading manga or watching a poorly acted Korean drama. You like to pretend you're a stone cold ice queen who lacks empathy but in reality you value every human interaction. Good luck, you'll need it......
you love to feel things and make things. you are continually inspired by your wellesley sibs and will often request they repeat themselves so you can record their sweet voices for a podcast you will one day make or to sample in a song. you love lake walks, soul to souls, edamame, and whimsical trips into the city. you strive to learn + grow + create always! thanks for being a buddy everyone.
You're 30 percent survival-based social performance, 15 percent flinch, 5 percent flinch suppression, and 50 percent earnest about the few things that inspire passion in your waking life! If you were a sandwich ingredient, you'd be the delicious food particle that fell on the floor that you ate without telling anyone, at no cost. When not eagerly picking up extra shifts at El Table, you can be found jogging around the lake or pumping leg iron at the gym. Your continued existence means a lot to me and if you're reading this, I love you. I promise, I love you.
Your low-key addiction to scratch off lottery tickets started when you turned 18. You may come off as quiet but smolder from within. You can be found sprawled out in Tower courtyard with mason jars filled with mysterious herbal drinks. Sometimes you start thinking about artificial intelligence and get really scared. If you don't have any tattoos already...don't worry you will.
You are Sabina and are probably listening to your favorite podcast (538 elections) or the same Beirut song on repeat without headphones. You love debating and thermophilic eubacteria and are probably about to go practice piano. You're prone to orchestrate elaborate snapchat bits, read Shakespeare critically, or mess up orders at El.
You're a sports geek (only) at heart who has a hard time breaking habits whether they are binge-watching tv shows or eating sweets (you'll never stop eating. Embrace it). You're a loyal friend who values honesty and warm interactions. While you're too self-conscious at times to follow your passions and desires, you're a meticulous and careful planner who takes baby steps every day! When you're not in Stone D or the science center, you're most likely in El or sleeping cuz you can't function without 8 hours of sleep. You're not the one to be super expressive, but you secretly enjoy being pampered with hugs and other forms of affection so here's some lovin for ya <3<3<3
You got Genae! When not eating toasted bread ends at El Table, you can be found ensconced in the philosophy department or behind the Clapp Desk. You're addicted to Spotify, flannels, and the New York Times Opinions Section, and you've come to terms with it. You also love pictures of goats in sweaters. A lot. You trust slowly, love easily, and are prone to getting more upset when people hurt your too-good-for-this-world friends than when misfortune happens upon yourself. Though you pretend to be obsessed with Aristotle, the kind souls in your life mean more to you than any old Greek man ever could. You're probably in a bookstore right now wondering if you should spend your salary on yet another book, and truth is you probably should.
You are over-committed but secretly love it because it doesn't give you a lot of time to feel sad. You love Miami, your essential oil diffuser, and reality television. You talk about how lactose intolerant you are as you order your second dominos of the week. You can be found lounging around El or crying in the art library. You once had a tumblr dedicated to Devendra banhart and that says a lot about you.
You got Hershel! You are are trans, an ENTJ, and don't like spending time at home. You have the cutest spider plant named Mercy and you treated yourself to a lot of room decor at the beginning of the year. (Wasn't really your fault, you had NONE). You love telling your friends you love them, because you mean it! Your favorite meme is Down with Cis. During the month of November, when you weren't at El, you were writing a story for NaNoWriMo. You can be my wingperson anytime. See you in space, partner.
You are ichen: lover of journal-writing, absurdist theater, and Doritos. You are on the quieter side but aren't afraid to tear up the dance floor for Lip Sync. On the rare occasion that you aren't in El Table drinking Mind, Body and Soul and/or having spontaneous dance parties, you can be found in Pom dining hall (especially on Nacho Saturday) or at your nicely decorated Clapp thesis carrel.
You're 40 percent despair, 10 percent deep musings, and 50 percent memes about dogs. If you were a character from Friends, you'd be Ross. You've learned to embrace it. When not physically in El Table (rare) you can be found in Clapp stress-writing a paper the day it's due, completing a triathlon, or gently crying into a book of Louise Gluck's poetry.
you're usually in a million places at once but you really love everyone a lot so you don't mind. you usually allot yourself one minute of walking time no matter where you're going. you just started drinking coffee to seem more artistic, but you're not sure if it worked, and now you're addicted. nice.
You got Marley! Like Marley, you probably spend much of your time staring at a screen, trying to write witty Buzzfeed bios until eventually realizing you're not funny. People are your passion, and so you're involved in every slightly social club and job on campus, repeatedly ignoring your school work and life responsibilities, but feeling alarmingly not stressed about it. Your favorite past times include climbing trees, talking about Oregon, and insisting that you never cry while weeping hysterically over a picture of a cat. You can be found living in El Table, or potentially wandering aimlessly around campus looking for friends. If this is you, don't worry, you will run into a friend soon, because at the end of the day all roads will lead back to El Table <3
You got... Diana! You have a heart of gold, and you are everyone's hype-woman. You can be found working that grill at El Table or you may be spotted in Stone D living room -- that's it, you don't go anywhere else. Trying to convince you that the Chicago Bulls aren't the best team of all time or that hot cheetos are just okay is where your sun sign really comes to shine: it's like talking to a brick wall. You try to bring light into everyone's day and are responsible for all of your friends' most liked Facebook pictures (you are also most likely to "like/love" all of your friend fb pics) If you went through this message without thinking about your cats once, you may have gotten the wrong result.
You got Mer! A member of *2* sustainable coops, your true loyalty is to composting. You believe that making toast is an art, writing papers is a social construct, and Soulja Boy is underrated. A tender bean with a weakness for well-curated playlists, you love your famELy from the bottom of your soft lil heart <3
