i fucking love fanfiction like it literally caters for every need, whether you’re wanting 2k of cute couples snuggling on the...
is this real life ಠ_ಠ
a good question from a follower who wishes to remain anon ~
Q: I wanted to ask if any other chapters have issues with girls not wanting to dress up / look presentable in their letters? We are having the issue right now where our girls wanna do the whole “roll out of bed look” and wear their letters. Some girls are fighting it and other girls are agreeing that we need to look presentable at all times.
A: you can probably guess which side of this issue i fall on! being the traditional girl that i am, i think there is at least a minimum of respect that you should pay to your organization. there really isn’t a debate. there are certain things you can & cannot do in greek letters, and a presentable appearance is a “do”. no one has to look like a beauty pageant contestant, but clean & neat isn’t asking too much.
how have others dealt with this problem?
I think it’s fine to rock the “lazy” look so long as you’re clean and presentable. I mean, if it’s just a comfy day and you wanna throw on a T-shirt with letters and sweats, I don’t see the problem, so long as you’re not dirty or messy or whatever. You shouldn’t have to get super dolled up just to wear your letters, but you have to be mindful that you’re representing an entire organization and your sisters. Before you leave, just take a second and think if you’d want someone to represent you in the way you look.
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 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!”
