Sorority big little reveal: another cut-throat, stressful activity surrounding sorority life. This is mainly stressful for the bigs, since they like to fight over the littles and talk behind each other's backs.
Last year I was a little, and I had no idea what happened behind the scenes. My favorite thing during big little week were all the little anonymous gifts from my big; I felt like she knew me so well, even though I had filled out a questionnaire asking what my favorite candies and room color scheme were.
This year, I had the opportunity to take a little, and let me tell you, the week beforehand was HORRIBLE. Fellow bigs that I considered to be my friends were shadily asking who I wanted as my little, and wanting to know everything about everyone. I have to admit, I was also asking who wanted who as their little, but I didn't want to spread rumors or anything. I had just genuinely wanted to know.
It got so cut-throat in the sorority house that some girls were straight up just being aggressively shady instead of passive-aggressive shady, which was hard to handle. Honestly, it was one of the most drama-filled experiences that I have had.
The day that big little preference sheets were due was the worst. All the bigs and all the littles fill out a sheet asking who they want, and after the sheets were due, everyone was knocking on each other's doors, asking who put which little down as their first choice.
After the pairings were sent out, there was even more drama, since some of the bigs got their last choice in little, and some of them got random littles. One girl even refused to take her little, since she wanted a different girl so badly.
On the bright side, big little week is over, but if there's one piece of advice that I can give: stay out of the big little drama.
