This is great news!!! I'm really rooting for Sagittarius now, and so is my daughter! Your mom must be on pins and needles!

(Aquarius sounds like a great option, too, though!)

Pref Party Number One

Today I went to the Aquarius preference party, and while I didn't fall in love with the chapter as much as I love Sagittarius I definitely enjoyed it and would be happy there if that is where I ended up. I was paired with an active I didn't know, which irked me a little because I know more than a few girls in this chapter and I thought I had made some really great connections with other girls I had met throughout the week, but this active was really lovely and had a lot of things in common with me so my annoyance soon blew over. A few girls spoke about what the Aquarius sisterhood meant to them, and while they all had really nice messages they were all clearly very nervous and relying on their notecards to get through their speech. I kept thinking, "Why did they pick these girls to share when they can't speak in public?" I don't mean to devalue their bravery to talk in front of a group in any way, but the way they talked distracted me from the wonderful things they were saying. They then showed a video about their sisterhood that one of their girls had made. It was a sweet video that really showed how much they cared about each other. It didn't start right away, though, which drew me out of the emotion of preference and into, "Why isn't it working?" The execution was just not very smooth, which stood in contrast to the very polished and put-together Sagittarius parties I had been to so far.

I was really, really, moved, however, when they announced that each of us had been given a little sorority symbol with a trait written on it that best represented us. Mine said humor, and I immediately started tearing up because I felt like they had noticed and appreciated one of my defining characteristics. We then pinned our smaller symbols onto a larger symbol to show how together many different types of girls make a chapter, and by then I was crying because I felt special and wanted. The personalization was definitely what sold me on this chapter! The active I was paired with was sniffling too by this point because of how moved she was by the video of her sisterhood, so we both walked out laughing and crying at the same time. The party ended on a high note for me and I left it feeling wonderful.

Am I going to rank it above Sagittarius? I don't think so, unless something goes horrifically wrong at the Sagittarius party tomorrow night. But could I see myself fitting into the chapter and enjoying my years there and the friendships I would make? Absolutely. It saddened me greatly when the Pi Chis were taking roll prior to the party starting because a lot of girls seemed to have dropped from recruitment rather than pref this chapter, and I felt like those girls were missing out on a caring and loving sisterhood. If this was the only chapter I had left to pref I would run to them smiling and happy on Bid Day. I only hope that they get the best girls that fit them well, and if I'm one of them I will be completely okay with that.

Haha I feel so special because everyone seems to want to know where I'll end up! And MC I hate to break it to you but there is no Pi Phi chapter currently on campus so it is not Pi Phi. I realized the Sagittarius and arrow symbolism after I randomly chose the names, but I picked Sagittarius for my legacy chapter because it's my sign I will definitely post how my second party went tonight!

Oh well. Can I at least hope that Aquarius is Delta Gamma or Delta Delta Delta?

Feeling really dumb because I didn't get the obvious and immediately wondered if there was a connection between clemsongirl and carnation.

Loving your story! Can't wait to hear the rest!

We don't have a Delta Gamma chapter either! Somebody didn't read my first post You can hope as far as Delta Delta Delta goes, but you don't get to find out until tomorrow. I won't reveal every code name but I definitely will share Aquarius.
