Way too much God/prayer in the post for my personal taste, but I'm glad she turned her experience around and ended up very happy in the end.

You know, we talk a lot about rushees being entitled and ungrateful.

Here's someone who could have just stormed off, who had a delightfully positive take on what could have been a bad situation. That's great!

Such a precious young lady. I know she'll have an amazing experience as a Theta, because she's already figured out that only you are responsible for your own happiness.

What a sweet post, and what a positive young woman. I loved reading this. I feel that this young woman will get 110% out of her collegiate experience and give back 110%.

To the other sororities who dropped me, thank you for letting me go.
Amazing that she knows already what it takes most people a lifetime to learn - in so many parts of life.

Yes -- I see she wrote some other blog entries about some struggles, pain, and disappointment she experienced in high school and as an athlete. This young lady seems to be embracing a whole new adventure as a freshman at Auburn.

In keeping with your comment, I thought this blog entry was interesting since it makes mention of a controversy ongoing in her community -- she seems wiser than many adults in her community. Backstory: Her high school's BOE recently made a decision to replace their Colonel Reb mascot (was like the former Ole Miss mascot). This has been in the news and also fodder for facebook flames among those choosing sides in her community. To which she writes and then asks:

Quote:
On September 4, 2015, I realized that not everyone graduates from high school.

Mothers pick who their children should or should not hang out with. Grown women comment hateful things on each other’s Facebook’s or purposely say hurtful things to others behind their backs. Grown men and women call each other explicative’s on Community Forums.

Grown women are still high schoolers. They’re just a lot less fake about it.
So, call me bitter. Share this post with one of your friends and talk about how wrong I am. That’s fine, all you’ve done is just prove me right.

Maybe my experiences don’t match up with yours, but before you comment or text me or email my mom your opinions.. Just one small question…

When will YOU graduate from high school?

Wishing this young lady the best as she embarks on the beginning of the rest of her life!

This young lady is obviously insightful and has her head screwed on straight; a delightful change from so much I've read surrounding SEC rush.

Someone should send a link to that special snowflake Texas mom who posted earlier.
