Epic Fail

Clearly I have blogging issues.  I had good intentions of blogging all throughout the summer, but obviously that didn't happen.  O well, I'm not going to give up on blogging that easily.  Now summer is officially over and I am back at USC.  Well, I've actually been back in Columbia for about 2 and half weeks but classes just started last Thursday.  I had to get here a week before all the freshman because I had to do spirit week stuff for sorority recruitment.  This year I am Pi Chi which is basically a recruitment counselor who guides all the new girls through the recruitment process.  When you're a Pi Chi you have to completely disaffiliate from your sorority beginning in May until bid day which is in August.  It's been really hard not being able to talk with my friends and roommates, especially when I have to run into the house to pick up my food and the run back out.  It's also been really hard not being able to wear 95% of my t-shirts since most of them have my letters on them, I've been switching between about 5 different t-shirts all summer.  Since I am living in the sorority house this year, I had to move out about 2 weeks ago and I am currently crashing with another Pi Chi's house on her futon.  Needless to say I am ready for bid day to get here so I can start sleeping in an actual bed (only 5 more days)!  But, this whole process of being a Pi Chi is totally worth it!  You get to meet some of the PNMs (potential new members) and you get to help them have a good Greek Life experience and choose the right sorority for them!  It really is a rewarding process and I'm so happy I get to be a part of the other side of recruitment! Other than that, which has been taking over my life since the beginning of August, school is what I'm trying to focus on now and getting everything organized for my classes.  Well, that's pretty much everything that is going on in my life at the moment so until next time (which won't be 3 months I swear)....byeeeee
