Hey guys sorry again. yesterday I went straight from classes to recruitment which ended at 11pm! And then we had Preference Round this morning which we had to meet at 9am. So I am going to post both stories from yesterday and today!

So Saturday- Philanthropy Round:
This day was the worst day of recruitment for me. I was so sad and cried a lot when I got my bid card these were my houses:
Snow White
Cinderella
Tiana
Merida
Mulan
Aurora

Belle dropped me which hurt so much. I loved this house and really wanted to go to their preference round. So the morning started off really bad because I was just really upset over that loss.

In no particular order, these are how the chapters went:
Snow White- This house was now my new number one and I wanted to make a good impression. Sadly, I didn't feel like I did well here. I don't know if it was because I was sad over Belle but I just didn't click with the girls. And then people kept talking badly about this house to me which confused me even more. I convinced myself to forget about this chapter because I didn't think the round went well and I didn't know if this was the best fit for me.

Cinderella- I still really like this house. I was a little nervous at first here, but then I loosened up and our conversation was awesome. It felt forced at times but overall I really like this chapter and their philanthropy. It truly hit home.

Tiana- So this chapter went extremely well. Their philanthropy video was so touching. I could honestly see myself in this chapter. And all the girls I talked to made me feel so at home. These girls were so amazing

Merida- I am impressed with this chapter. I love their philanthropy and the message that their chapter has. This round made me fall in love with them. I was so happy here.

Mulan- I am kind of sad I was invited back to here. I loved their philanthropy and the girl I talked to was awkward but nice. I just can't join this chapter. But these are such nice girls and I would love to be friends with some of them

Aurora- There philanthropy is so important to me. By far out of all of the chapters I love this one the most. I just don't think I am a good fit here. All the girls are nice and I would love to be friends with them. And the best thing about Greek Life is that no matter where you end up, you can always support one another. So I am definitely going to every philanthropy event they have because theirs is just so special to me!

So at the end of this round I was so confused. And upset. But I talked to my mom and she made me feel so much better. For Preference round tomorrow, we can go up to a total of 3 chapters. This is how I preffed:
Snow White
Cinderella
Merida

In order from what chapters I liked the best to least:
Tiana
Aurora
Mulan

Even though I didn't have the best time today at Snow White I still really liked them and wanted to see if they really liked me too. I was preparing for them to drop me so I was going to be fine with everything no matter what.

So preference round was such a surprise! In a good way though. I loved all the chapters that invited me back. It was a total 180 from yesterday and I was so excited and happy to go into this round When I got my list I said "oh wow" and my rho gam was like "...is that good oh wow??" Hahah I was just so surprised and happy to see that Snow White invited me back because I did not feel like my round went well. And I was sooo happy with the other chapters I had on my list.

When I got my list these were the chapters I had:
Snow White
Merida
Tiana

Even though Cinderella dropped me I was SOO happy to see Tiana up there. I really loved these girls and would love being sisters with them.

In no particular order these are how the chapters went:
Snow White- their ceremony was gorgeous. I fell in love all over again while I was here. The girl who rushed me first told me she heard a lot of good things about me so she was excited to meet me. I loved that she said that because she made me feel so special and it felt genuine. The last girl me and her talked on a personal level which I loved. I had amazing conversations here and was so happy and felt at home.

Merida- LOvED this house and these girls. The conversation I had with my girl was amazing start to finish. We also have a lot in common. Regardless, I want to be friends with these girls. I love everything about them

Tiana- This ceremony was amazing. I just loved how special the girl who rushed me made me feel and we had such personal and fun conversations. This chapter was amazing and I would love to call them my sisters.

As you can tell I loved every chapter I went to haha. Which is good because tomorrow I will definitely be happy where ever I end up. But my heart has always loved Snow White. Preffing was so hard because everyone kept telling me they don't see me as a Snow WHite. But if I wasn't like them why would I have made it this far? Like listening to others is not a good idea at all when going through this so I went with my heart!

In order of houses I liked the best to least:
Snow White
Merida
Tiana

I know in my heart I made the best decision and I am soo excited for Bid Day tomorrow!

I love the way you looked for and found wonderful things about all the chapters at your school. I just know you will have a fantastic chapter experience as well as a wonderful panhellenic experience. Can't wait to see where your new home is!
