It's found it's way back in my life after the last few days of recruitment with the Phi Mu ladies at American University. Not that I've spent many waking hours away from girls who understand the meaning of the snap and like to do it all the live long day. I'm just hoping not to start using it at work or other social situations when I head back to reality tomorrow.
The whole experience of being an adviser to these young women has been so incredibly rewarding. Seeing their growth as leaders, helping them reach their goals, and most importantly having a TON of FUN along the way is totally awesome. I'm so excited to see the results of all the long hours, sleepless nights and endless emails tomorrow when they meet their new member class on bid day!
For as much as I hope I've made a positive impact on them, I know without a doubt what an impact they have had on me. It has been a true pleasure and honor working with and getting to know this chapter.
To add to my "you know you're a sorority adviser when" list:
- Your car has a helium tank, suitcases, 500 flowers and vacuum cleaner in it.
- You faceplant on the sidewalk on a main street in DC while going to every grocery store and florist in a 5 mile radius trying to find your sorority flower because there are way more women coming to your next party than planned for or imagined - deemed Operation Carnation 2011.
- You think breaking out into song and dance is and should be a part of every day life.
- You are put on caffeine probation by a young woman 12 years your junior because she fears for not only your sanity, but also your life.
