greek life is the most curious thing i've encountered since being at school.

not a moment goes by that my ogranization is not on my mind-- that i'm not thinking about how my sisters are, how their days are going... what's going on in their lives.

I always thought I would find a church and feel at home.
that because Jesus was there, and the church body was so welcoming, that it would become my second family.

but i was so very wrong.

it's not very often that girls in a greek organization tell each other how much then mean to one another.
but, in my sisterhood... we don't have to.
tonight, we went to Ziggies after we had our Senior ceremony.
all you had to do was look around the table to see and feel the love we have for each other.

sisterhood is loving the people you sometimes hate.

i'm so very blessed to have the sisters i do.

growing up, i never had sisters.
i have three older brothers.
obnoxious, smelly boys who are 5, 6, and 7 years older than me.
i never really knew how to be a girl.. or get along with girls...

and it's truly amazing, my sisterhood.

you know you're doing something right, when a new initiate (shiny, if you will) buys an active member a dessert without telling her-- leaving the waitress to say "Who's Melanie? What kind of pie would you like? It's been taken care of."
simply because the Shiny knew the active was having a rough time... because she knew the active could use some sisterly lovin.

you know there are good things happening in your chapter when your new girls have only been active for 6 days and they're automatically accepted, and willing to jump out and do something sisterly.

i nearly cried when the waitress said that to me....

because that made me extremely proud of my sisters.
my amazing, wonderful, beautiful, tremendously talented sisters....

it's been a long, hard year.
we've been through storms and heartaches and hardships.
and we're better for it.

next year... will be amazing.
it already is.

That's too bad that you didn't feel welcome at a religious thing. I found out via Facebook that you're Baptist...that's cool! I didn't know that.

Glad SAI is going so well for you now. Wish I could say the same for me but I think we'll be fine next year.

wow...It's a nice coincidence that the first entry I saw on your page was this. :) This is Jessica! If you couldn't figure it out. And I added you. Add me back?

I don't post often anymore, but when I do I post a bunch in short bursts...so most of my journal is old stuff. But hey, if ya go back to my very first entries, that's when I started freshman year of college so it's a nice little collection of the years I think!...lol...I was...odd?

This is Jessica (Ducky)
I changed to a new journal. I had added you as a friend on here and waited a few days and then yesterday I was worried everyone hated me cause no one would tell me what was going on so I deleted you...And the most curious thing happened tonight. You showed up on my friends page even though I'd un-added you and this was the entry that showed up! (Because it's the last one you had that wasn't friends only.) But I think it's a sign...And it made me cry and miss you. So I'm adding you again and hoping you want to add me back. <3
