This past Saturday I turned 20, and all I could think about is how old I am getting. Now if you are a parent, grandparent, or just anyone over 20 reading this I realize that you may think this is ridiculous, but it’s hard to believe that I’ve been around for two decades.
For my birthday I went to Indiana University to see some of my best friends. My best friend, Sara, also went with me from Purdue. I was so glad that I got to spend time with them and just be around people that I have known anywhere from 4-8 years. That was on the Friday before my birthday! On Saturday my actual birthday I came back to Butler to be with my friends here. I also went out to dinner with my sister and her husband. It was a lot of fun and of course I got one of my favorite foods, SUSHI! On Sunday, I went to the Colts game with my dad, and basically my second family mark and jake. It was a lot of fun and it was a colts win, so who can’t get excited about that!
In the end I realize I’m not that old and still have a long road ahead of me, but it’s weird not to be a teenager anymore.
Tomorrow I will be going back to Butler a week earlier than everyone else. This because myself and 3oo other girls are going to be rushing for a sorority!
Obviously I have never been through rush, but it seems like a pretty intense and fun week. Rush goes for five days. Wednesday – Sunday. Tomorrow night at 9 pm we have our first meeting, which basically puts us into our groups and with our recruitment counselors. Each counselor is a sister from one of the sororities, but they cannot tell you what sorority they are in. They don’t tell any of the girls until the last night, and they have to hide the fact they are part of any the sororities from august until Sunday! They do this so that everything is fair and open.
I’m planning to blog about each of my days during rush, because I personally know that coming into this not having any idea of what to expect I want to be help others see what it’s like! Being at a smaller school I can expect a lot of differences from other big schools like IU or Purdue, which many of my friends rushed. Hearing their experiences makes me even more excited. I cannot wait to share all my experiences with you throughout this week! And hopefully by the end of the week I can share with you the sorority I am in!
