It was a few years ago when I was the editor of a women's pop culture website that I started writing about perfume on my blog, YesterdaysPerfume.com. Trying to be discreet in the middle of an open office, I'd pop open a tiny one-milliliter vial of the decanted perfume du jour and dab it on my wrist with its plastic wand.

Alright everyone! You can officially start unpacking your mangled, balled up Christmas tree lights (which we all know what the correct color should be) and get the inflatable Frosty The Snowman set up in the front yard. Bust out the eggnog and start coming up with excuses for why your unemployed cousins can't stay with you when they come visit this year because the holiday season is officially upon us.
This is what we talk about when we talk about corrupt Greek life. Last week, Northwestern University's school paper The Daily Northwestern published an extensive look into the history of hazing at the college, prompted by a long-term investigation of the fraternity Phi Delta Theta for events that have occurred over the past few years. Though details of the potential punishment for the frat have been sealed, Phi Delt brothers are happy enough with it that they've taken to social media to celebrate dodging a bullet after their history of sexist and violent behavior.
