I can't wait...I'm so nervous for you!

From one huge greek school (in the number of chapters) rusher to another, good luck! Stick in there when you're exhausted and just think about how awesome it'll be on bid day when all of your hard work pays off.

Good luck!

AMEN! Wow, please tell me the rho chis/gammas have snacks or something! Or at least a diet coke and/or red bull!

Snacks

Haha our rho gammas have granola bars and fruit gummis. And every other party is a drink party where we get a small glass of water or soda or something. It's small but every little bit helps. Dinner after 10 pm is going to suck though. I'm sitting here on my lunch break inhaling food as we speak!

Yay! I'm so excited to hear what happened today... I hope you post when you get back but I would totally understand if you crashed face first in bed after a 14 hour recruitment schedule!

Good Luck during recruitment! Don't worry about being a sophomore too much...I can't speak for your school, but I know there were a considerable amount of sophomores going through formal recruitment...infact, there are 3 sophomores in my pledge class this year!

12 Party

Hi! Sorry but last night I crashed after our rho gam meeting. It was definitely the longest day of my life so far! We had to get up really early to meet our rho gamma to get our list of which houses we were invited back to. I got 11 houses back, which is really good when compared to the average amount of returns girls usually get.
I got back Jazzberry Jam, Burnt Sienna, Fuzzy Wuzzy Brown, Bittersweet, Wild Watermelon, Laser Lemon, Cerulean, Mac-n-Cheese, Banana Mania, Cerise, and Mango Tango.

12 party is skit day. The dress: dress pants, cute top, and heels. Weather forecast: rain rain rain rain rain. Ewwwww

So here was my day in a nutshell:

Jazzberry Jam had a good skit and the girls I talked to were nice. This is one where I can possibly see myself being in this sorority but I just didnít get the warm fuzzies that I got at other houses.

Burnt Sienna was so much fun and I had great conversations with the girls, even some that I had talked to during 19 Party. This house is definitely in my top favorites.

I feel so uncomfortable at Fuzzy Wuzzy Brown still. I have awkward talks and I just donít feel any connection with the girls here.

Bittersweet is another house that I can just tell is not for me. I was surprised to see they asked me back. I donít really know how to explain it, I just really feel that itís not a good match.

Wild Watermelon was a surprise. I didnít really remember them from 19 Party and really liked them today! Very funny skit and the girls were really nice. This house is near the top of my list.

Laser lemon is a toss-up. The girls are so sweet but again Iím not feeling that little spark. Theyíre very middle-of-the-road for me because I seem to forget them once I leave. Iíd like to go back and learn more about them though.

Cerulean is my absolute favorite house. I loved everything about them and their skit was really funny too! I just feel so at home already with the girls I talk to and I can see myself being a part of this sorority.

I didnít like Mac-n-cheese any more than I did at 19 Party. Again, I just know itís not a good match for me. I feel like I am so different from the other girls in the house and the conversations felt forced.

I have to admit by the time Banana Mania rolled around I was in a real sleepy slump. I think I didnít feel as good about this house because of how tired I was. I didnít give it my all yet the girls were still fabulously sweet and very down-to-earth.

Cerise was again very impressive. I really like the girls Iíve talked to and I love their house! This house is definitely still in the top part of my list.

I had hoped my impression of Mango Tango would change from 19 Party but again I felt pretty uncomfortable. It didnít help that I was double rushed, which makes it harder to talk with the sorority member. Again, I kept noticing how different I was from the girls.

At the end of the super long day these are the rankings I turned in:

Cerulean
Burnt sienna
Cerise
Wild Watermelon
Jazzberry jam
Laser lemon
Banana mania
Mango tango
Mac-n-cheese
Fuzzy wuzzy brown
Bittersweet

I know Iím a day behind so Iím going to get to work on writing about my 6 Party day for all the rush thread addicts out there. I must be driving you crazy right now! I might wait until the morning to post the details from today just to break things up a bit. Who knows
