Your preference party didn't sound cheesy or cliched --- you had a magical party that few PNMs get to experience. You went into it loving the chapter and knowing you were going to receive a bid so you were able to relax and take it all in.

I've loved reading your journey. You've been the epitome of an open minded PNM, and I am so happy for you! I have a good feeling about which house you'll be running toward today. Enjoy your bid day with your new sisters!
Love. Labor. Learning. Loyalty.

This is exactly what we mean when we go for the cliche "it only takes one".

I normally will not read a recruitment story until I'm sure that it's complete. (Basically because I'm a schmuck and get too emotionally invested to have to wait a couple days. I think I feel almost as anxious as the PNM. LOL!) However, your story has been the exception. You have such a marvelous attitude about recruitment, which says a great deal about you.

This is my last day with my daughter, dropping her off at college, so I won't be near a computer, but you can bet I'll be checking my iphone periodically throughout the day!

Best wishes to you!!!!!!!!!!

SUPER excited for you...what a wonderful experience to know as you stand there that this is YOUR house! Not something most people in pref parties get to feel....

[QUOTE=krtxo;2168741]Sorry my post about preference round was kind of cheesy and cliched. I really meant everything I said though (and I think I'm extra emotional because of this long, stressful week). Thank you all so much for all of your support and prayers! It's great to have so many people on your side.

Also, I want to apologize for my choice of television shows! I know MM is not the most appropriate show (it's the definition of a guilty pleasure!) and I hope I didn't offend anyone!

Oh, please don't apologize for your description of your pref. I know there probably a lot of lumps in throats, as that is EXACTLY what should happen at a pref, and you probably brought back a lot of fond memories.

As for offending anyone with the MM choice (...since I was the one who made the quadi-snarky post about MM), there was no offense taken at all. I was just commenting on the irony of how we were following the story of a very classy, articulate and thoughtful person who was about to join a sorority who obviously recognized and valued those qualities, and the random name assigned to that sorority happened to be a show about folks who show NONE of those

Wishing you and your new home a delightful bid day!

I think I'm a little too invested in GreekChat lately because the pref invitation post literally brought tears to my eyes.

Congratulations, KRTXO!
