The 5 Stages of Getting a Random Little

What's life without a little serendipity?

The 5 Stages of Getting a Random Little

Every year, sororities go through the speed dating process we call selecting our big and little sisters.  Whether it’s instant obsession or overwhelming confusion, the day of the revelation is nothing but excitement. At least it’s supposed to be, right?  

With huge sororities, not everyone is able to match with people they know, so sometimes you’re thrown a curveball. This year I was given a little I had never spoken to in my life, so going into the reveal I wouldn’t call what I was feeling excitement. Here’s what you feel:     

1. Shock: The list is up. You find your name and … your heart drops. The name next to yours means nothing to you. Basically, it’s time to do some hardcore stalking. 

2. Wonder: Well, she seems cool, but who knows. You get to shower her with gifts for a week so she better love you. All you can do is wait, hoping that you like her presence as much as she likes your presents.    

3. Nervousness: The day is finally here, and you think you’re ready. You stand around, waiting for the littles to arrive, and you realize that everyone around you is bursting with excitement because they’re about to tell their new sidekicks that they’ve officially joined the family. You, on the other hand, just hope you’ll be able to carry a decent conversation with her for the rest of the night. And, gosh, do you run and enthusiastically hug her like everyone else? Because you’re totally not on that level yet.  

4. Uncertain relief: Before you can make a solid decision, here they come. You have to track her down so she isn’t wandering around looking for her mystery girl. You find her, make eye contact, and put on a big grin as you approach. Here goes nothing. A hug and a few pictures later, you sigh with relief. She seems pretty great.        

5. Bliss: After dinner, frozen yogurt, and a movie, you realize that it’s meant to be. You have more in common with her than you could’ve imagined.   

If you’re ever in the same situation, be excited. Things may not have gone exactly as planned, but you’re basically being given someone who is obligated to be your friend no matter what. Chances are you’ll absolutely love her.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
