Being Dropped From Your "Dream" Sorority

The "dream" sorority might not be the best one for you.

Being Dropped From Your "Dream" Sorority
Caroline Ayn Mitchell

It's that time of year again where school begins and recruitment is in the air. Recruitment season has girls shedding so many emotions- them being members of the sorority already & those who are going through. As our own recruitment just ended, and Bid Day was yesterday, there was one major theme that I kept thinking about. Most of the time you see girls jumping for joy & running to the house of their dreams, but then you have those who cry or are not happy about the outcome. For those of you who did not get the "dream" house, this ones for you.

Being dropped by a house that you thought was meant to be your "home away from home" may be better than being in the one you thought was best for you. As you were talking to the many of different girls of the house you wanted, you thought you connected well with the girls, and maybe you did, but as a whole the house thought you might fit in best somewhere else. This is not a bad aspect, nor should you look down on yourself for it. The sororities know the personality of their sister and can mostly determine whether you are a next piece to the growing circle of their sisterhood. This is not a chance to dog the sorority that dropped you, but to give the other houses on the row a chance to be apart of their sisterhood. They are taking a chance on you and offering you a bid that could of been for another girl, but they chose you! And there is that possibility that you may fit in somewhere you thought you did not belong.

Just like anything else, it is all about what you put in as to what you will get out. One of my own sisters lives to the thought that the effort you put in will determine the outcome you receive- and I could not agree more. It might be a lower tear sorority, or it may be one that you are not a legacy of, but that sorority's sisterhood could be the one that you make the best memories with. Just like they took a chance on giving you a bid, you need to give them the chance that they could be the best friends you may ever gain.

So when you get that bid and it is not the house you wanted, still give the girls a chance who want to one day call you their sister. Do not take this as a rejection or that you are not good enough, but a blessing in disguise to what could be the best sisterhood you could ever be apart of.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.

316

I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves. I realize not everyone believes in astrology-related anything, and there are plenty of people who don't fit their signs. However, I'm one of the people who truly fits their sign to a tee. I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
