To The Sisters I've Always Wanted, And Finally Have

To The Sisters I've Always Wanted, And Finally Have

I am incredibly grateful to have you in my life.


I believe in the notion that one always wants what they do not have. Growing up an only child, there was nothing I wanted more than to have the companionship of a sibling - to have someone to share with, someone to laugh with, someone to grow with. As I became a member of Delta Gamma early in my college career, I was thrilled at the thought of finally having the sister (or, in this case, sisters) that I had always wanted. Little did I realize, these women and I were not solely adopting the title of "sisters" that are bonded within the shared values of our sorority - we were about to become a major piece of one another's lives.

It has been said that, throughout one's college years, they are likely to meet their lifelong friends. Entering an extremely large university, I was perplexed by the idea that I would encounter a group of people that I would become so close with so quickly. To my pleasant surprise, this happened faster than I had ever expected.

After roughly one year of spending most of my days with these girls, I reflect back on the generous amounts of memories made in such a short period of time. It is incredible to recognize how well we had meshed from the beginning of our days as DGs all the way through the present. I have found the friends that I can share anything with, that I can laugh endlessly with, and that I can grow with on a daily basis.

I am inspired by all that they offer the world, as well as all they have taught me in regards to bettering myself and living each moment to the fullest.

I am grateful for the days in which they have been my support system at my highest of highs and my lowest of lows, and I can only hope to continue to do the same for them. Yet, overall, I am most appreciative of the constant joy that they bring to my life. They are the sisters I have always wanted, and I am proud to call them my friends.

Sacha, Katherine, Meghan, Jade, & Madison, I love you always.

21 Things You Say To Your Roommate If You Two Are Practically A Married Couple

Until I made this list, I didn't realize how absurdly close my roommate and I were. #sorrynotsorry

1. "Can you turn the light off?"

2. "We probably shouldn't go out for dinner again...right?"

*complains about not having money* *spends $8 on Chipotle three times a week*

3. "I always pick where we go"

This is a fight you have with your roommate almost every day when you're roommate is as indecisive as mine.

4. "Do you have my keys?"

5. "Can you pick me up?"

6. "Is it hot in here?"

7. "Does this outfit look stupid?"

The answer is usually yes. No offense.

8. "Can you throw this out for me?"

9. "Can we get ice cream?"

10. "I need coffee"

This text is usually sent when you know your roomie is out running errands... errands you know are near a Starbucks.

11. "Can you tell me what happened?"

12. "Are you asleep?"

There have been times where I couldn't tell if you were asleep or dead... and I had to say this out loud to check if you were alive.

13. "Check your dm's."

*cracks up in the middle of nowhere* *catches a weird stare from your roomie across the room*

14. "Can you plug this in for me?"

Another instance where "I always pick" happens.

16. "Look at this girl's Instagram."

*chucks phone across the room at roommate*

17. "Can you call me?"

18. "Can we meet up?"

Separation anxiety is a real thing, people.

*tries to get ready to do something fun* *ends up staying in for another girls night*

21. "Why isn't everyone as great as us?"

10 Things I Learned From Joining A Non-Traditional Sorority

Joining a non-traditional sorority may not be normal but it can have its benefits.


When I started college, I had no intention of joining a sorority. However after hearing my friends talk about the amazing time they were having in their sororities I decided to try and join one. After multiple failed attempts at joining a traditional sorority, I finally found my forever home… in a non-traditional sorority. And after talking to my friends in traditional sororities, I found there are a few things that are different.

​1.  Every time you mention being in a sorority, you get a million questions of which one and people don’t seem to understand when it is not a traditional one.

2. You get to know all your sisters extremely well... almost too well.

3. You don’t have to drink to have a fun time.

4. You can’t find your sorority letters anywhere unless you special order them.

5. It tends to be cheaper to go the non-traditional route.

6. Big/Little is just as important for your sorority as a traditional one.

7. There are secrets… a lot of secrets. But it is so worth it.

8. There is very little drama but when it does happen everyone knows everything.

9. Your sisters will become your best friends and your big/little will be even closer than that.

10. No matter where you go you will see a sister and know her name.
