Veronica (@VeronicaRuckh) is the Director of Total Sorority Move for Grandex, Inc. After having spent her undergraduate years drinking $4 double LITs on a patio and drunk texting away potential suitors, she managed to graduate with an impressive GPA and an unimpressive engagement ring -- so unimpressive, in fact, some might say it's not there at all. Veronica has since been fulfilling her duties as "America's big," a title she gave to herself with the help of her giant ego. She has recently switched from vodka to wine on weekdays.

My top layer is Texas toast. Bottom layer is tortilla.
Actually. Retweet on the girlfriends being the best wingwomen front. And as far as I’m concerned, really, no other girls should exist but me.
TYSM. I try.
Me too. God, me too.
I believe that the point is not to colloquially use words like “sociopath” and “psychotic” to be funny when you’re not dealing with actual mental illness. But by all means, get tripped up on semantics.
To imply, as you have, that men can’t have BPD is ridiculous. It’s often misdiagnosed in men simply as “anger issues,” and the fact that it is so often coupled with substance abuse makes it even harder to detect the mental illness.
Lowkey, this was funny. Once I’m done reading through submissions…I’ll bring back the damn wall/bane of my existence. PEOPLE FIRST.
Gonna try to get them out once a week from now on.
Yes! Like why the fuck…
You don’t need to be nasty. I just mean it’s not going to be “this is what it’s like to be in a sorority” or boring shit about a random philanthropy, because actual cool girls are out there living it, and don’t need to read it. I didn’t say there would be no sorority content. Just that anything relevant to the audience is appropriate for the site. You don’t need to read the stuff that doesn’t pertain to you, but actually, the pop culture stuff has the highest readership among anything we do, so it wouldn’t make sense to discontinue it. But again, thanks for your input.
Still too soon to tell.
Yep. Trying to get back into some of that. I’m working on some brand definition right now and planning to update the style guides/recruit more writers once that’s complete. I feel like TSM (and TFM) had a bit of an identity crisis after all the changes were made in-house.
I will say this: I want (and have always wanted) TSM to be a site FOR sorority girls (and like-minded non-Greeks!) not a site ABOUT sorority girls. Content like this piece specifically still makes sense to me for the site because it’s a silly piece about things the audience cares about (re: boys and pop culture). It’s something we always would have done. I think the balance is just off at the moment so it’s maybe striking a little harder.
I wish you girls would comment more, because that’s the best way to get feedback, and I appreciate the input. We’re here to entertain YOU after all. But from what we’ve seen, women have always been more prone to engage on social media than on the sites. In any case, this is another thing I want to work toward — making this more a sense of community. Sit tight. Changes are coming. And thanks for your note.
I mean, it’s also only 4 out of the last 25 pieces of content. I thought it was funny to sensationalize something trivial. I’m sorry you didn’t like it.
You’re right, though, in that the news we’ve been covering has been pop culture heavy lately, and I don’t have to tell you that this family is a centerpiece to pop culture. We’re not going to stop talking about them (or pop culture in general) completely for as long as they’re relevant to 18-24 y/o women, but if there’s other stuff you’d like to see more of in addition, I’d be happy to consider adding it into the mix.
It was a joke, actually. Always open to writing suggestions though.
Oooh, yay! Was just tryinggg something. Glad to hear that.
I actually thought that too. Like, okay, but it’s a lot.
I feel pretty good about it.
It’s these not these 
I thought about the getting caught thing. Might change my name.
