Sorority Rush As Told By The Presidential Election
publika

The Presidential race stirred up a lot of controversy... and a lot of memes. When Hillary was basically offered a bid then got cut on Pref, I started to realize how much alike sorority rush and the presidential race are. I mean, one determines the leader of the free world and the other is flirting with girls for 12 hours straight, but just stick with me here, ok?

1. The week begins and you literally have no idea what to expect.

2. The moment the door of your first house opens, you learn what exactly a "door stack" is.

3. You make it through the first house and think "that really wasn't so bad."

4. You have so much energy at the beginning of the day, but by the eighth house you have determined death is very near.

6. On philanthropy day, you try to have a deep and meaningful conversation with someone you just met LITERALLY three minutes ago.

7. You've talked about where you're from. At least five times. Within an hour.

8. By the third day, you're so thankful to watch a house's skit because for like 15 minutes you DON'T HAVE TO TALK.

9. You desperately try to hold yourself together on Pref because you aren't wearing waterproof mascara and your potential sisters CANNOT see the face you make when you cry.

10. You get suddenly nervous to open your bid card and go through every potential reason there might be for you to get cut.

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand.
