Well, I guess I’m an alum now… but still
I mean, they’re nice, some are very pretty, but I honestly don’t think they’re /that/ great. They’re just… pretty paisley and occasionally some other prints… Also, fairly expensive.
… I feel like I need to stage an intervention.
I head out in 10 minutes. We have chapter - mylastchapter meeting - and then the ritual to officially transition me from active sister to Alumni.
I’ve been a bit distant from my chapter the past few weeks because of how busy I’ve been, but it’s really starting to hit me.
I founded the Gamma Zeta chapter of Delta Phi Epsilon along with a few other beautiful women in the Spring of 2009. We first came together in the Fall of 2008, about two weeks after I came to college.
I’ve been with them ever since.
In a way, being a part of Gamma Zeta is as much my college career as studying or working or the classes I’ve taken. It’s been a part of me from literally the beginning until the end.
I can’t put into words the beautiful moments I’ve shared with the incredible women of my chapter and of other chapters. I know that sisterhood is for a lifetime, but there’s a part of me that knows it will never be quite the same. I’ll never experience the joy I felt when I held our Charter in my hands for the first time. The first time I was elected to a leadership team position, the first time a sister held my hand while I cried. The first time I met my littles and watching their initiation.
It all went byso fast.
So, to all my active sisters. Please, please,pleasemake sure you cherish every single moment you have. Even the tough ones. Few things in this world will ever be as memorable, or as special.
I’m graduating soon, and the first in my family line, which is really just now hitting me how much of a BFD that is. And I’ve yet to really come up with anything for my family, no traditions, no slogan or saying or motto, not even a name. It’s driving me crazy. I officially became a great-great-gran-big yesterday (and I wasn’t even there for the ritual, so I’m cranky pants) and now it’s hitting me that I can’t tell my great-great gran little “Hey! You’re a member of ____ family now!”
