Random things happen in the house every day. Let me tell you all about the shenanigans that can happen daily.

The Day After

Everyone knows that day after drinking feeling, the hang over. Some hang overs make people completely want to stop drinking. They can make you feel so sick that you want to sleep all day. But the day after in a sorority house is the most interesting thing you could ever witness. All the girls sit around and talking about their nights, it’s almost as fun of the night before filled with parties and drinking.
Last night was our formal dance, so this morning has been full of fun conversations and activities. I started my day today with a nice nutritious meal at Leo’s Coney Island. Then at home since it’s a nice day out we all piled out onto our deck in the back yard to sun bath and take wonderful hang over naps. My good friend decided it was too hot to wear pants but was too uncomfortable to sit outside in just her underwear so she decided to make a skirt out of her jacket. Our house is three floors and climbing to the top floor to get shorts seemed like too much effort. My other friend rocked the tank top and undies look, while I chilled in my sports bra and leggings.
Within an hour of being out on the deck a ton of boys from a fraternity down the road came over to have a sober event with us. You could imagine our surprise when we’re all sitting in almost no clothing and boys show up. Thank goodness I had a blanket to cover up and sneak inside to change my outfit.
Day after stories are the best to tell, and even more fun to live out.

Do sorority women play video games!?

There is a huge stereotype on what a sorority girl looks like, acts like, and does in their free time. There is also a huge stereotype for fraternity men as well. But think for a second, if you had to picture what the “ideal” sorority girl looks like, acts like, and does in their free time what would that be?

I think most people would be able to paint a pretty good picture in their head of what their “ideal” sorority girl is. Stereotypes on greek life are huge! But if I were to tell you some statistics and facts about the success of people in greek life I think you might be shocked. Not only are sorority women extremely successful but they aren’t always the stereotype image you paint in your mind. I think my house is a great example of that.

Yesterday my dear friend brought an Xbox back to the house from home. She was lucky enough to have her younger brother be willing to loan it to her. Now, the majority of people who sat back and thought about that image of a sorority girl would not have put “avid video game player” in their picture. I can even assume that when I said Xbox most readers were shocked or thought the games that were being played were even girly. Does Xbox even have “girly” games!? A couple of the girls and I stayed up for hours last night playing Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, and Zombies (the zombie version of COD). It was fantastic! Were we amazingly good at these games? No. But I’m glad my house is full of girls who have depth, and aren’t the stereotype. I love that there’s a wide variety of different women in my house that can break the stereotype barriers every day.

Spring Break

I think this is a good subject since we are all coming back from spring break this week. I went to Panama City Beach for this spring break. I was in search of one giant, typical college spring break that every student wants to have at least once. Luckily, I finally found that on this trip! I had the time of my life and was fortunate enough to see three concerts while I was down there. Diplo, T-Pain and Luke Bryan were the concerts I attended but there were so many more artists down there that I was unaware of.

Great music was only the start of what made this trip so fun. I went with the best group of people I could have asked for. When planning the trip we barely knew each other but after the trip we have all become such great friends. To tie it all into Greek life, and sororities, my group was all from Greek life. But the cool thing was that we were all from different sororities and fraternities. It’s amazing that Greek life can come together as a whole to have such an amazing time together. People may think that we are divided and all do our own separate things but when we come together we make great friends, have amazing times, and can even do so much for the community.
