To The Girl Who’s Lost Passion For Her Sorority

Remember why you fell in love with it in the first place.

To The Girl Who’s Lost Passion For Her Sorority

I know it’s been tough lately. Between school, work and every other commitment you have, sorority seems like something you should put on the back burner. It seems like another chore on your never ending To-Do List. I know it’s hard to get yourself to go to meetings, philanthropy events and sisterhood activities. For whatever reason, you’ve started to feel exhausted, left out and frustrated with your organization. You’re wondering what you’re even doing here anymore. You’re wondering if it really matters.

This is your reminder that it does.

This is your reminder that the negativity and conflict will pass. Your feelings are valid and important. You are cared for and loved even if you’ve felt the opposite lately. Even though lately you’ve felt left behind and unimportant, I want so badly for you to know that you are important. This is your reminder that you are in your sorority for a reason. You add something to your group of sisters that no one else can. Your ideas, gifts and creativity matter even if you haven’t been told lately. The work you’ve put in matters. You’ve made a difference in the lives of your sisters. If you weren’t here, nothing would be the same. You are cared for and you we’re chosen to be here. You have a special place in your sorority. Never forget that.

Whenever you feel like giving up, forget about the negative and focus on the positive. Think about all the times your sisters made you laugh until you cried. Think about the philanthropy events where you got to get your hands dirty and really help others. Think of the late night conversations you’ve had with your sisters talking about your hopes and dreams. Think of all the times they’ve helped you and all the times you’ve helped them. Remember running out on Bid Day to your new home and how excited all of your brand new sisters were to have you. Remember getting your Big and how excited you were. All of these things are the reason you fell in love with sorority life.

You know better than anyone that sorority life is not about going out to parties, dressing cute and getting wasted. You know sorority life is better than the stereotype. You know that it is about an unbreakable bond between sisters working toward the same goal. So please do not lose your passion for it. Focus on the good and let go of the bad. Be open and honest with your sisters. They are there for you. You all chose your sorority because you all believed in the values it stood for. Don’t forget about those. Think of your founders who created your organization, who carefully wrote out every ritual because it truly meant that much to them. Let it mean that much to you again. Remember why you chose to join and I promise you will feel that passion once again. Don’t give up. Things may not be perfect right now but you were meant to do amazing things for your sorority. Don’t lose the spark.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
