My apologies for being MIA for the past week; I was dealing with sorority formal recruitment. As much as I love this time of the year, I also find myself dreading it for a variety of reasons:
1.) Extreme lack of sleep- I can’t even explain what it is like to run solely on coffee and two hours of sleep for five days straight. Yes, that’s right- FIVE DAYS!
2.) As much as I love my sisters, there is such thing as too much time spent together– I just needed some me time, by myself, alone.
3.) Tears. Lots and lots of tears.
4.) Lack of food for five straight days- basically only one meal a day.
5.) Let’s face it, cuts are going to happen, every sorority cannot take every girl they want. It’s hard and emotionally draining to have to make cuts.
However, as I recuperate from this exciting, yet extremely stressful and draining, I am counting my blessings, especially 32 new blessings as I welcome our new alphas home! Seeing them (and my rho gamma friends) jump off the stage and into my arms on Bid Day makes all of the tears, stress, and lack of sleep so worth it! I can’t wait to see the amazing things these women do in our chapter.
Now, I must catch up on the week’s worth of homework I’ve been putting off, but I promise there will be more exciting posts coming soon!
