A lot of the other groups have a highs/lows thread, but since we already have our "Venting..." thread I thought we should have a just a happy thread!

My happy thought for the day is that I don't have class again until Monday! I love fall break! AND I don't have to work every day over the break like I thought they would make me, only two days!!! Hurray!

I had a date with an awesome guy last Friday.......

AND, he called Monday evening wanting me to come over to watch football (yes, Brian's been out for a while).

I'm leaving in 16 days for a week in the Caribbean........woo hoo

I finally figured out a way to make my doggie be good! He always likes to be crazy in the mornings when I am home (especially during the middle of the week when I'm not normally here!) so sometimes I sing songs to him - today I sang him door songs, substituting Poo for you! (He's a Lhasa Poo.)

I can't believe I'm actually admitting this, but it works! He just sat there mesmerized watching me clap. I'm pretty sure my mom thought I was crazy after "Gamma Phi Beta welcomes Poo here!" I think this is more proof that he actually wants to be a girl puppy.

I'm going to the Seahawks game with the same guy I went out with last Friday (and did I say I saw him Monday night too).;)

I might even see him tonight. He was going to go out with a co-worker but that might not happen so he might come over. I figure just the fact that he said "that sounds wonderful" when I asked (rather than anything less enthusiastic) is a good sign whether he can make it or not. But he's hard to figure out.........

Not sure if this should be on the happy things thread, or if I should start a "God help me/Boy drama of the week" thread, but I'm too lazy to start my own thread...

Ok, so my ex from like 3 years ago, who I was very very in love with and very happy with has recently been on my mind SO MUCH lately... Background: I broke up with him because he basically had a plan for us; when and where we'd get married, where we would live, how many kids we'd have, what kind of cars we'd drive, what color our house would be, etc. At the time, that freaked me out and I couldn't handle something so serious. We had some issues, tried getting back together, but it didn't work. We were on a talking basis about every month or so and went to dinner once, then I learned he had a g/f and she was moving in with him. So I didn't want to interfere, even as a friend.

Well, this guy has been on my mind CONSTANTLY for like 2-3 weeks now. I wanted to call him, but didn't have the guts and was so afraid of stepping on the g/f's toes, so I didn't. He called me tonight... I nearly flipped out! So we talk for a long time, he's broken up with the girl, she's moving out and up north, he's still in love with me (he tells me). We talk a lot longer, I keep seeing all these awesome things I would overlook when we broke up... and we made plans to go out this weekend, and if they go well, we're going to Disneyland in 3 weeks.

So now I'm tripping out! Is it stupid for me to even think about getting back together with an ex? He was a great guy, had some minor issues, but he's grown up a lot, as have I, and I think we always had something that was just incredible... What should I do?!!

GeekyPenguin
10-20-2003, 02:38 AM
Carol, that's totally not stupid - I remember you talking about this boy a little another time and you seem totally into him. Give it a shot.

And meanwhile, there was this boy I had a huge crush on our senior year of high school. Well, turns out he had an internet girlfriend from Canada (I know! :rolleyes:) so that went nowhere, and I dated the guy who cheated on me but I kept dating him anyway until we left for college. Two days later, I was pretty much together with GPBoy. Now internet girlfriend boy just waltzed back into my life because a mutual friend told me his girlfriend just cheated on him, so I sent him an email saying I know how much it sucks and if he ever wants to talk to let me know...and he wants to see me this weekend over fall break. Disturbing.

SmartBlondeGPhB
10-20-2003, 11:15 AM
Carol, not bad at all to get back together with him. I'd be freaked out too if someone had my life planned out that much for me. Go out with him and see what happens. Once you see him in person, he may or may not be what you're wanting now.

You guys are awesome... thanks for the support. I'm excited about going out with him on Friday. I do miss him, the more I think about it and the more I talk about it with people that know how we were together. Now i have one other issue...

My best friend, who I told this whole situation to, thinks that if Matthew and I are going to start being more honest and serious with each other (just in case), that I need to open up NOW as to something I kept from him. When we were together, he bought a really pretty sapphire ring for me for Christmas. I kept it after we broke up, but told him I sold it (because he said why should I keep it, etc). Honestly, I wear the ring all the time (and I don't think it matters that I wear it on my left hand ring finger; that's not an important finger till it's a fat diamond set in platinum in my opinion ;) ) So should I tell him that I still have it, or should I wear it on Friday and just let him see or what? I know this may seem trivial, but it's important to me, and I don't want him to get the wrong idea about it, you know?

I love you guys by the way. :D

GeekyPenguin
10-21-2003, 07:42 PM
I think you should wear it and let him see it - I think it would mean a lot to him that you still have it.

Melanie, I am glad to know you are making up for my lack of males! I have a date with my mom to go shopping on Friday if that counts for anything. ;)

And here's some Gamma Phi happy news - my sisters voted me guest of honor at banquet, which I wasn't going to go back for, but how can I turn that down? I'm actually somewhat excited for it because it'll be fun to see everyone again (although it is just a week after initiation). I think I'm taking one of the SigEp's biological little brothers - I just told my Gamma Phi little to find me an acceptable date. ;)

Last night was so amazing! I went over to Matthew's house, he made me dinner and we rented some movies. Not the most creative date or anything, but it was fun and I didn't want to do anything too outgoing in case I ended up not having a good time. He was just so incredible last night- it was like we had never broken up. He surprised me a lot because we got to talking about stuff that's gone on since we broke up and he didn't get upset or hurt when I'd talk about Alan (my most recent ex) or anything. It seems like he's grown up a lot.

As for the ring, he was looking at the ruby my dad gave me for graduation and made a comment that he was surprised I didn't get a sapphire (my birthstone and favorite jewel). I told him why I didn't, but that I still wear my sapphires in my necklace and my class ring, and he asked if I still wore the ring he gave me. I was just quiet and he looked at me and said "I know you never sold it. I know you still have it. I understand if you don't wear it." I told him that I do still wear it, but that I didn't want him getting the wrong idea. I could tell he was happy that I kept the ring though.

We're going out tonight, probably with a couple of my friends, so hopefully I'm still feeling the same as yesterday. Wish me luck!

SmartBlondeGPhB
10-25-2003, 05:34 PM
WOO HOO!

And yes, sending very good wishes your way!

My date was pretty good. He's an SAE alum from the UW so we talked a lot about that. We'll see. I don't think things are going anywhere with the guy I went to the game with last weekend.

gphiangel624
10-25-2003, 09:46 PM
Well, things still going really well with Matthew (I know, it's only been a few hours, but whatever... I'm still on a natural high!), but I'm really worried for him right now. Some of you may have heard of the fires going on in SoCal right now; there are two that are very local to me that are still burning- one in Rancho Cucamonga (the "Grand Prix" fire), and one in San Bernardino (at the base of Lake Arrowhead). Matthew is very close to the one at the base of Lake Arrowhead, and the Grand Prix fire is moving much closer to where he lives; right smack in the middle. His grandmother's house and two aunts have all ready been evacuated, and he's waiting at his house for the police to tell them to leave, but they're all packed up. Pretty scary... Hopefully all these fires stop soon- the smoke is just disgusting and the ashes have been raining down every so often, even though the fires are over 30 miles from where I live- really scary.

Keep everyone in your thoughts and prayers!

SmartBlondeGPhB
10-25-2003, 10:55 PM
Well, if he's all packed up it sounds like he isn't going to risk anything by staying around his house longer than he should.

Besides, he likes a Gamma Phi. He's definitely SMART.

Good luck to all of you, I've been seeing the news.

As if men weren't messing with me enough.................

This evening, as I'm getting ready to leave to meet a girlfriend to go to a play, a guy (who I've mentioned on here) calls me (after hearing nothing from him for about 2 weeks) and asked if I want to go to the hockey game TONIGHT.

THEN, after the play we're walking to the restaurant and I look at my cell phone (had been on silent during the play) and I missed a call! Ok, my cell phone rings every once in a blue so I'm thinking I'm pretty popular right about now. It's from a DIFFERENT guy who thought he'd have better luck catching me if he tried my cell phone.

DO THEY THINK I HAVE NO LIFE OR SOMETHING????????

And, why couldn't they have called YESTERDAY. I spent the evening putting up my Christmas tree............

Any bets on how long it will be before I hear from mr. hockey again????

One word..................MEN

NEVER give up hope. I am a walking example........

The Sigma Chi I told you about IM'd me tonight. He's up working at Crystal Mt and quite far from me for the season (to shorten the story). He was wanting what most men who've done nothing but work for a few weeks want. He commented that it was too bad I didn't live closer and here's how the conversation went:

Me: well I'd probably invite you over
Him: probably?
Me: I wouldn't want you to accuse me of making a whiny grab for attention
Him: Why would I accuse you of that?
Me: Well..........
Me: You already accused me of it once
Him: Oh
Me: Yep, I guess you don't remember
Him: no
Me: yah, our last conversation wasn't a pleasant thing.

But I told him it was no longer a big deal (do I need him?) and I think things are cool now. I think he lost power though because he disappeared from online pretty suddenly.

So see? You never know might happen when a MAN is involved. My CATS are less troublesome...........:confused:

I think you should tell your Sigma Chi to grow up and grow a pair well he's at it.

I have the best suggestion for all of your men woes! Date Pi Kappa Phi's. If you have a good chapter out there then your problem is solved. That is where I got my husband and after 8 years together he hasnt failed me yet! And another suggestion(not that anyone has asked my opinion) Every Sigma Chi that myself or another sister dated was a meathead. I would walk away from that one. Not that they aren't perfectly adorable to look at!

I just love meeting other sisters in unexpected places. When my husband and I went on our honeymoon, I wore letters to the airport. I was walking near security and a woman walked up to me and gave me the handshake. At first I was a little taken aback by a strange woman walking up to me and shaking my hand, but then I realized it was a sister and that made it very cool. She was a flight attendant and an alum from FSU. Which futher proves that you should always behave when you wear letters! You never know who may be watching!

I had a great New Year's Eve.

I really didn't want to spend the evening with any of the guys I've dated recently, so I went to this party alone (well a good friend was having it). And found a VERY good looking, single, young man who was more than willing to kiss me at midnight (and prior to and after). My friend having the party had even thought we'd go well together.

Of course, my liberal self got into a HEATED discussion with his conservative, MILITARY self over Bush (wanted to break the finger he kept pointing at me) which I figured blew any chance I had.

OF COURSE, as my luck (or not) would have it he shipped out last night for 6 months to Iraq and I will probably never hear from him again (but he is good friends with my friends so who knows).

Why do I keep getting attached to men who then disappear?????????

He was great fun to kiss though.;)

Hi Everybody!!!
I can't tell you how happy I am to finally have that thing out of my house! Now don't get me wrong they are beautiful, however when my 22 month old discovered that you can remove the ornaments IT WAS ON! So for the rest of the season my tree was decorated from about 4 ft and up. I have lots of pictures because it was so funny looking!
On a side note I hope everyone had a great time over the holidays! I was in by 7:30 pm on New's Years Eve and I think in bed by 9:30! My how things change.

I just wanted to let all my other Gammie girls know that I have exciting news. On February 16th, I had my first candle light!!! I was pearled by my boyfriend (who is a Theta Chi-Alpha Psi chapter) and another one of my sisters had her candle light for getting engaged!! It was a wonderful experience and even more meaningful since it was my little's first candle light and the first thing we got to do as big and little. I love this forum and hearing about all the good (and bad) things going on in sisters' lives around the world. Hope to hear back from you!

All my love in IIKE :)

I have even better news now! A little history first:

I've been working at UC Riverside in the office of Student Life since November 2004 (I also worked there as a student assistant when I was an undergraduate) as the Interim Coordinator for Student Organizations. I knew that the permanent position was supposed to be filled by July 1, and I intended on going for it from the start. Well, I took a temporary position as Manager for Student Organizations when my Interim contract ended on June 30, and was in the application pool for the permanent coordinator... it felt like the search took FOREVER! I applied in late April, phone interviewed in July (10 applicants of 110 were phone interviewed), and interviewed in person in early August (only 3 got in person interviews).

Needless to say, I was stoked, I really didn't think I'd get an interview to say the least. Well, it was 3 weeks after my in person interview and I was starting to get nervous... until yesterday when the position was offered to me! Apparently, they had some difficulty selecting a candidate, I wasn't the first choice (the first choice has 12 years of experience, a Masters and is working on the EdD; I'm starting my masters program in a week and ony have about 10 months of professional experience), but the first choice declined for better money elsewhere so they selected me! I'm stoked (I still beat out 108 other candidates!); this is my first career position! NO MORE CONTRACTS! Technically, I started the job on Friday as soon as I submitted my resignation letter from my current position (which we now have to hire a replacement for) and I've been doing the job since NOvember, so it's nothing new, but I'm so excited!

We had a 4 day honeymoon at my mom's cottage in Grand Bend, ON. (on lake huron near michigan). It was so nice to relax on the beach for a few days. our honeymoon was so short b/c we had to drive back to Alberta, which takes 2.5 days.

Last week I got promoted to Major. :D (Though, they still haven't changed my rank on the tote board!) I'm an Academic Advisor who has been working with the ROTC for over a year now. This fall, I will be teaching a university seminar course for the freshman cadets.

Hi Ladies!


I just wanted to share that I managed to make the news last night. San Diego's Channel 8 news station did a bit on the Community Emergency Response Team Helicopter Operations training I did yesterday. CERT is a program which provides free training for civilians to become Disaster Service Workers who may be called to assist in the event of a major emergency. Our training is conducted by firefighters and professionals from San Diego Fire-Rescue.


I volunteered to take extra training for Helio Ops and we conducted the live exercises yesterday with SDFR's Copter One. We learned how to marshall in the aircraft (arm-signalling from the ground to help land the helio), loading/unloading passengers, and how to prepare long lines (freight).


I had a blast! To my surprise, I was selected to be the CERT who marshalled in Copter One! (Gamma Phi Beta represent!! :) ) The news cameras arrived after my big moment; but they got a lot of shots of the various teams in action. News 8 has a link to the story and video on their website. In the video, several of the clips are of my group, Team Five! You can't really see me, but when they show people getting in and out of the helio, and a big guy in a bright orange shirt, that's us. There's a part where they show a line of people ducking and shuffling away from Copter One, I'm the last person in the line on the right. :)

I don't think I posted my good news. I got a permanent job!!!! I'm a Unit Administrator for a Reserve Military Intelligence Unit which has nothing to do with my degree but it is in an area I love working and I get to do what I enjoy. I also get to go to Human Intelligence Collection school in a few so I can be a Military Intelligence Soldier. Way more exciting than what I was doing in the army! My unit is deploying in March but right now it doesn't look like I will be going as they need people in the rear to keep the unit running so I should be home....

I'm an aunt! My sister-in-law had a baby on Friday, which is also my Grandma's Birthday. This is the first child on my mom's side of the family since me, and that's been over 30 years. I'd say he's going to be spoiled, but most of the family is in California, so I don't how much spoiling he will get.
