Looking back on the past year as the T-Shirt Chair for my sorority, I begin to reminisce on all sorts of memories. With a position as random, and sometimes as overlooked as T-Shirt Chair, you never really realize the complexity of the position until you're in it.

I truly realize how much work goes into even the smallest tasks. I've worked hard. I tried my best to make everyone happy. And as hectic and difficult as the job was, I loved every second of it. Not everyone will relate to my struggles, but at least I can shine some light on my duties with a little bit of humor.

1. Someone asks you if the shirt comes in another color.

2. You hear someone complaining about your designs.

4. Someone tries to tell you that they ordered a shirt, but their name isn't on the sign up sheet.

15. Counting all of the sales from the philanthropy shirts ordered.
