Wink Rush Thread Addicts' Support Group

Announcing the official rush thread addicts' support group thread

Just say whatever is on your mind...

All are welcome - GLO members, PNMs, future PNMs, interested onlookers, everyone.

I'll start:

Hi, I'm aephi alum and I'm a rush-thread-aholic...

Best of luck to everyone, on both sides.

Carnation was mean

You know you're a rush thread addict when the entire Northeast loses power and your first thought is "no rush threads!"

I'm AZpinkkittie, and I'm a rush thread addict. I like to live vicariously through other peoples rush thread's until my own rush starts. And the waiting for my rush is making my hair gray.

Hi! I'm PreppyGirl and I'm a rush thread addict...

* While I'm at work, I refresh my GC screen at least every 1-2 minutes to see if there have been any developments...

* When I get home, the first thing that I do is check my email and GC to see if anything happened during my commute (which is about 5 minutes-- maybe less)

* I stay up WAY past my bedtime checking updates

* First thing I do in the am-- check my email... second thing-- check GC

I just discovered GC this summer... all I can say is that it will lead to some serious procrastination this school year. Forget Snood! Forget Instant Messenger! I've got GC to help me avoid doing work now!

HI my name is Sarah- (Hi sarah)
I am a GC Rush threadaholic.
(Tears up) at first, it was little things- oh a new girl- going through rush- is there an AGD chapter there? Do they like them?
But it slowly got worse...
what other chapters are there? How many rounds? How competitive? What is house total? Quota? Who all made quota?
I hit rock bottom two nights ago when I had to go into the chat room to bide my time waiting to find out what Blazercheer went. I stayed online for three hours to find out- and could have been productive at work instead, but chose GC.
I am doing a little better, even though there is a current thread about my school- I guess since I am alum I can deal with it.
I have been doing better-
I check once every 30 minutes instead of once a minute- I even went all last night with out checking once- of course I was AT rush, so maybe that was why.
Anyway, I am now doing pretty good- I am excited about threads at schools that don't even have AGD, and I am so happy when a PNM finds a home that she loves, and honestly I can say no matter the letter- we're all greek together...
OH WHO AM I KIDDING- I AM AN ADDICT- MORE RUSHEES POST NO MATTER WHERE.... god have mercy on my soul!

hi i'm megan and i'm a rush thread addict.

i'm having my wisdom teeth pulled on tuesday and my first thought when i realized it was "am i going to miss any bid days???"

i was late for work last week because i was checking blazercheer's rush thread on the off chane carnation actually posted some details.

i check the rush forum at least 5 times a day, usually more, just to see if there are mew developments.

Hi, I'm Christin and I'm a returning recruitment thread addict. I've always loved recruitment, or rush as it was called in the olden days My favorite thing is the PNMs journey through her recruitment, and details are wonderful. I'll be obsessive next week with all of the Kentucky schools in the heat of recruitment (translation, if you have a KY school connection, PLEASE POST!!! I teared up when I learned that BlazerCheer was finally home.

You know you are a recruitment thread addict when the entire Northeast loses power and my first thought is "Where are the GC servers located?"

Hey... It's PreppyGirl again. I just wanted to let all the other recruitment thread addicts know that there is hope-- today I sat in front of a computer from 1:30 until 4:30 without checking GC once! Baby steps...

Actually though, I have a question about the "withdrawl" following recruitment. What do you do when there aren't any recruitment threads?? Re-read the old ones?? I don't know if I'll be able to handle a few months with out rush threads when I can barely go a few hours!!

Well, there are plenty of schools who don't start recruitment until September. Then, there's IU and Purdue who are doing the November/January split. THEN there's all the deferred recruitment schools. Toss in a few COBers throughout the year, the "I can't wait for all of the recruitment threads next fall" threads, and if necessary the threads way way back at the back end of the Rush Forum, and you'll be fine.

If not, we always have this thread to keep us going

Christin
(yes, I am serious)

I too am a recruitment thread-aholic. It started out last year during the fall and progressively through the summer it has gotten worse. Even during my summer school computer class, which is 5 hours in front of a computer, I check GC at least once an hour just to see if anything has been changed or updated.

I don't know how I am going to stand it. I think I will have to shut off the computer for a week just to get a huge dose all at once. Imagine that high?!

Hello I'm ADPiUCF, and I am a Recruitment Thread Addict!

My addiction began this summer, as I began to meet PNM's on GC, to hear their stories, and answer their recruitment questions. I feel like I have come to know them all, and want to call them my Panhellenic Sisters, so as you can see, I am on pins and needles, feeling like an anxious parent, wanting to know and experience through their eyes all that is of recruitment at their university, and their jubilation at receiving their long-awaited bids!

Oh I can't wait to see what sororities will welcome our GC PNM's as their own! I must admit, every few minutes, I like to check out the rush forum and see if there is any "breaking news"-- Is there a Recruitment "Patch" like nicotrol that will break me of this horrid addiction?!
