This last week/weekend was something that I had been dreading for awhile….initiation for my sorority. I wasn’t dreading it for bad reasons…I was dreading it because I didn’t want it to be over. Since initiation is done…that means that it’s been six weeks since the semester began, which just makes it that much closer to me being done with college. I also just love initiation week, from all of the fun traditions that we have, to just being able to spend more time than normal with my sorority sisters.
This year we had a banquet for all of our new members, to celebrate them officially joining Alpha Phi, and it was an amazing day. The seniors all got together beforehand just to hang out and spend time as a pledge class, and then we joined the rest of the group for the banquet. During the afternoon, we all had the best time just being together, and reminding each other of why our sisterhood is so special. At one point, all the seniors sang a song that one of our alumni wrote about our house, and I cried the entire time. Yes…I was that girl. Once the waterworks started flowing…there was no turning back. Based on how much I cried during Recruitment and this last weekend, I’m pretty sure this is how the next few months of my life will be…crying. A lot.
Despite all of my crying (happy tears of course), it was an awesome day. We now have 42 beautiful new members in our house, and I can’t wait to see what the next two months bring us. We still have Spring Sports Spectacular, our spring philanthropy event-Phiesta, senior week, and formal left to go….so there’s really no reason for me to be sad…right?
