Yes, it's almost 4 am right now. But it's emotional release time.
Ok so say 3 was the second part of round one. See, for day 2 we did 10/12 of the sororities on campus. And, since there's two more, we visited two more for open house.
Which, of course, meant voting happened.
See, rush is like a giant game of mutual musical chairs. You rank your sororities, and they rank you. Some cut you, and, if you're lucky, you have the opportunity to cut them.
I don't exactly feel comfortable divulging my original ranking right now. If I get a bid (and that's a very strong if) I will let y'all know.
I will say this, though.
So we were supposed to have our schedules at 9:30. But, obviously, we didn't get them then, hence why I'm up at 4 am. Don't worry, I caught a 3 hour nap today, so that's kinda why I'm not sleeping rn (well, that and other things).
At about 3 am I decided to check the rankings to see if I could sleep in. And then guess what I see:
And I'm like — I've been dropped by everyone. Literally every sorority has dropped me. And I legit started crying so hard in bed, because I didn't understand what would've caused me to be dropped from everyone. I was thinking "oh it's got to be technical difficulties, my pi chi said this wasn't going to happen". And then I started imagining what it would be like when my pi chi called me at 5 am and told me that I'd been dropped by everyone.
It was terrifying. I'm like, still internally reeling. Because, surprise surprise, it was technical difficulties. But we ain't out of the woods yet, y'all. This is still the second round.
There's still this round and the next and bidding to go. Hectic, right?
I'm really hoping that I can perform when I get in. Like, I know that doing this to find a group I fit in with, but another part of it all is putting on a performance. You have to show them the best parts of your personality as you go into each round.
And that's tough for me, because I want to be humble. I don't like flaunting myself so heavily.
So yeah, I'm sure y'all are curious about my schedule. Here it is:
That's right, I have four left to work with.
I hope that one day these girls will be my sisters, and I hope my options truly stay open, especially in such a large crowd.
Thank you guys for reading, it means a lot to me, especially since when I thought I'd been dropped by everyone, I knew y'all would have my back.
It's time to try to sleep now, since I'm kind of exhausted.
Good morning/night y'all
