One year ago today I took part in probably the most influential event of my life so far (and possibly ever). I was initiated into my sorority.
I tried writing something about what my sorority means to me, and it just turned into a whole Greek life thing and it was a bunch of rambling. I will make a post in defense of Greek Life eventually, I just need some time to get it right.
I got very emotional while writing it, because I am no longer a member of my sorority (because I'm not a full time student at the moment), but I plan on trying to reinstate next semester. I'm trying to not get my hopes up though because reinstatement is a very tricky process that starts all the way at the national level. I will be heartbroken if I'm never reinstated but I will forever be thankful for getting to experience one year (and all of the rituals included in that year) of Greek life.
I'm kind of curious, what are all of your opinions on Greek life?? I'm trying to get my parents to understand why it has been such an important part of my life, so I guess I need some advice from some people who can honestly tell me how they feel about sororities and fraternities from the outside. All of my friends kind of sugar coat things, I think, in order to not hurt my feelings. But I would love to hear what you think about it, the good, the bad, and the ugly :)
Anyway, please comment and let me know what you think, this means a lot to me :)
