I want to preface this by saying that if you are not in a sorority, if you never see yourself joining a sorority, if you are in a sorority, if this & if that, it is OKAY. Whichever path you take is your very own & you are unapologetically yourself no matter what. Stay that way forever.
Looking back on my years at good ole Tarleton State *Guns up*
I really really lived, are ya picking up what I’m putting down?? If not I may attach some proof at the bottom of this page.
I’m sort of a catty woman, very head strong, stubborn and short on patience. So the thought of actually being surrounded by girls all the time turned me off. Especially since I worked with 27 girls already. – I like to think of us Montana Waitresses as our own type of sorority-
The schedule seemed stressful especially since I worked at least 40 hours a week, full time student & had horses. & then the thought of fees and T-shirts????? Horrendous. (But I do wish I had the stack of t-shirts some of my friends have)
It just seemed so scary & I thought I was doing okay. My friendships from classes, work & good ole Bar C really had me covered. -A night at Bar C with my pals-
Anyways, fast forward a year and a half. No more Montana, no more Bar C, no more classes. I still have wonderful friends. Blessed. But I wish I had more.
Not more friends necessarily but more connections. It’s amazing seeing girls I went to college with move off to new cities but still have “sisters” they can meet up with, no matter where they’re at. The connections you gain when you join a sorority are more than I can fathom. No matter which career path you decide is right for you, you can almost guarantee a sister before you chose that path as well. You never have to worry that you are alone or stress that you don’t have a person near by.
You constantly have your sisters hyping you up, IRL & on social media. You always have someone to help you out in any situation. Someone who constantly has your back. No matter where you are, physically or mentally.
I’m sure there are other things sorority sisters enjoyed more & I can point in the direction of many so you can ask those question about other positives. But for me, I enjoyed life, we had our own type of “formal” , our own parties but I will never be connected to others the way sorority sisters are.
I live with very few regrets and this is one.
Cheers to all the girls who found their home no matter where you are. Cheers to my sorority friends. Cheers to my non sorority friends.
PS. If you have any connections that you want to share with me I would love to be your “sister”
PSS. I decided not to post proof because it’s too embarrassing 🤦🏼♀️
