According to Tip legend, Emma's status as a 4-4-1 tipster is quite respectable, at least in the eyes of her fellow tipster friends. Emma is agreed to be a pretty iconic tipster, and has a few legendary stories of her own to share with the growing population of intellectual minds.

First Year (2014)

Emma took Stones and Bones: Archaeology and Anthropology at Wake Forest for her first year at tip. Her RC was Izzy, and her RAG consisted of thirteen other smol lil beans. Her roommate was Lily, and Emma and Lily bonded over their shared love of Haribo gummy bears and veggie burgers. Emma's first year of tip was in 2014, and many of the rules and regulations were not in place at that time. Due to this, Emma and Lily were legally allowed to party hard with other socially awkward 13 year olds in the vicinity of their small room. Emma's suitemates were Maya and Jessica, both of those girls being absolute angels and allowing Emma access to their shared shower from the crisp hour of 7:37 to 7:43 am every single morning. While Maya was an OG and shared her coveted Morovian Ginger cookies, Jessica shared her beautiful bassoon music with Emma during 9 to 10 free time on a nightly basis. Back in her first year, Emma chose to abide by the rules, so she got a good 8 hours and 50 minutes of sleep every night. Emma did not violate the cell phone/electronics policy, in large part because the only electronic device Emma possessed was an iPod shuffle. With this piece of breakthrough technology, Emma listened to many bops including the entirety of Taylor Swift's repertoire of country-not-country music and her hometown hero's "Hey Porsche" (note: Emma did not understand half of the lyrics at this point, so she just assumed that the song was about cool cars and St. Louis)

Phillip the Pineapple

The only story from Emma's first year that is debatably more iconic than Albert from Alabama is the story of Phillip the Pineapple. Once upon a time, pineapples were used as decoration in the dining halls (note: the phrase 'once upon a time' is significant because this is no longer the case as of present times, largely due to the following tragic story of a beautiful pineapple and fourteen hungry teenagers). One day, a smart lil bean named Iris realized that it would be fairly painless for her to steal pieces of fruit from the dining hall. Iris started off with the occasional apple or banana here and there, but then proceeded to set her eyes on a bigger and more illegal prize: the coveted pineapple. For three hours each day, this gorgeous piece of fructose stared at Iris, as if he was taunting her to steal him. After many many days, Iris finally decided that the time had come for her to rescue the handsome Phillip from the dining hall. After the most heinous heist of the 21st century, Iris and her overly enthusiatic RAG decided to bring their beloved Phillip to the first dance. Iris had the honor of dancing with Phillip, much to everyone's dismay. However, the sheer act of committing the unthinkable helped Iris and her RAG to settle disputes quite subtly, and it was decided that Iris would get to enjoy Phillip's company for the entirety of the three slow songs.

After the dance, Iris and her RAG realized how much energy they expounded in obtaining and supervising Phillip, and decided that it would be a fitting time for a late-afternoon snack. Unfortunately for Phillip, this delicious snack involved the sacrifice of his handsome set of chloroplasts in the name of hunger. The girls brutally murdered Phillip the Pineapple by the light of their phones, using only the plastic knives that they were able to steal from Chik-fil-a. Fortunately for the girls, their RC Izzy was from Hawaii, and knew and trick or two about pineapple anatomy. The exact verdict of Phillip's fate has not yet been determined by a unanimous vote, but to this day Emma swears the Phillip the Pineapple was the best pineapple that she has ever consumed in her almost 17 years of living. Phillip the Pineapple continues to live in our hearts not only as Iris' date to the dance, but also as a martyr to the greater good of quality produce consumption by aspiring vegans, vegetarians, and Paleolithic dinosaurs.

Second Year (2015)

Emma's second year at tip was filled with fair amounts of drama, ships, dancing, data usage, and tiring efforts to save the bees. Emma's RC was Liz (who she actually saw for three out of four of her Tip terms) and she was in Mock Trial. As one of the few second years at Wake Forest, Emma distinguished herself from the rest of the lil tipsters by partaking in various activities involving microwaves, running, and closing statements. Thankfully, Emma had a bit of a technology glo up, and proudly sported a super "kool" (another second year vocab word) iPhone 5c in her favorite color (also happening to be the warmest of the colors): blue. With this new piece of techy tech, Emma could now do new and exciting things such as communicate with her parents, take pictures, and listen to actual bops (sorry nelly and taylor) Emma was an honorary member of The Brotherhood partly because of her great pick-up lines (usually involving states of some form), and partly because of the dining hall Jesus camp incident (more details to follow). All in all, Emma had a pretty memorable second year that was equally as fun as it was stressful.

The Spicy Savages

Emma was placed in a RAG consisting of 10 other "spicy savages" including Ella, Alex (her super kool roomie), Hayes, Elly, Kristy, Megan, Ava, Leah, Elizabeth, Sarah, and Esther. Their RAG was known to contain the koolest, spiciest, and altogether loveliest of the many females residing at the beautiful Wake Forest campus. Additional information regarding the whereabouts of this lit RAG can be found here on their RAG page :) Liz's RAG performed a glorious rendition of Don't Stop Belivin' by Journey for Tipsync, complete with expert choreography by expert choreographers Hayes and Ella. One judge, Boris, particularly favored their routine, leading to the ultimate success of the group's breathtaking number.

The Tale of the Microwave and the Sports Bra

The story that you are about to hear is one that has been shared multiple times (and was shared so quickly that the entirety of the tip population at Wake Forest heard this story within an hour of its occurrence). Emma claims that there is justification for the atrocity that occurred on that fearful night, but her roommate as well as the majority of the tipsters agree that the event that happened was unprecedented and iconic in nature, so iconic that Emma was referred to as "Microwave girl" for the remainder of her three weeks at tip.

Mock Trial Squad

The Mock Trial Squad of 2015 continues to singlehandedly serve as "class goals" throughout the entirety of the diverse tip community. The page Mock Trial Squad 2k15 contains a rare behind-the-scenes perspective into the dynamics and mechanics behind one of the best intra-class relationship (and relationtip;) of all time. Mock Trial was taught by the legendary David Yasinovsky and TAed by the famous Jackson Meyers, and consisted of Ella, Emma, Rahmla, Carly, Esther, Elly, Jay, Aaditya, Jacob, Logan, Quinn, Bo, Jerry, Nassir, and Max. A groupchat was created sometime in the first week of class, and served as the primary outlet of rule-breaking (in the form of late-night communication and meme-sending) for these angsty teens. Although over two years old, this class groupchat continues to be active periodically, and many many fond memories were formed due to the existence of this chat.

The Mock Trial class itself was a pretty stressful experience, largely due to the implementation of the Socratic method of teaching into the tasteless public school-bred palate of these intelligent but regrettably lazy tipsters. The class consisted of three main mock trials, ranging from the famous wifi battle of 2015 to the more sophisticated drunk driving accident (with a trial about a certain boy with diabetes thrown in for extra spice). A majority of class time was spent preparing for these trials, and many memories, alliances, and inside jokes were formed as a result of these large chunks of supervised freedom. The remainder of class time was not wasted, and the Mock Trial Squad of 2015 spent every last second of the class attempting to soak in all of the law lexicon and case studies that were presented to them. Emma definitely was overwhelmed at first by the amount of classwork as well as the presence of many intellectual minds, but slowly learned how to adapt and thrive in her new environment. Additionally (as the rest of her class is fully aware), once Emma opened her mouth for the first time, it was nearly impossible to get her to close it again, resulting in her name being written around the perimeter of the rebalance box more times than she would like to admit. Emma loves her Mock Trial friends almost as much as she loves cantaloupe, running, and goldfish on her salads (thankfully that was just a phase).
