I really need to apologize for being MIA for the past couple of days. I meant to post my Friday Five last week, and life got really hectic and I was traveling and I didn't get great wifi signal and you know all hell breaks loose. I spent most of Monday recuperating after this weekend, but I'll tell you all about it on Friday for Friday Five.
I'm currently going through formal recruitment, so that's adding to my zero time and super stress, but I'm determined to make it through it..
You may not know this, but I was supposed to go through formal recruitment as a freshman. I was so excited to go through and "find my home", and then the snowstorm happened. Long story short, recruitment was postponed until the weekend after, and I could no longer go through due to schedule conflicts. Lucky for me, they decided to make the switch to fall recruitment (as it's supposed to be), and only six months later, I have the chance to go through recruitment once and for all. So when I had to miss most of first round for a funeral, I was really upset. I managed to make it to two parties and they were so overwhelming and nerve-wracking but I was glad I got the experience. After "preffing" four sororities, I didn't get the phone call saying I was cut, so I'm nervous and excited to move onto philanthropy round this weekend and find out which sororities preffed me back.
At one of the parties I did manage to go to, the President of the sorority said a speech, and she said this exact quote, which I thought was interesting. It's only fitting that it's my Wednesday Wisdom for this week. Although I'm incredibly nervous about going through recruitment, about being judged by hundreds of girls, about stepping out of my comfort zone, I'm excited. I'm excited to find a new home, to meet people I would have never met, to create unbreakable bonds, and to become a sister. And if I listen to my fears, if I back out and step back because I'm scared, I'm missing out on a lot. So, life begins at the end of our comfort zone, and I'm stepping out.
