Good times

Yesterday was the fall social for my school, and I had waffled on whether or not to buy tickets because they were so expensive ($40 preorder, a 100% increase from $20 last year). (Budget cuts = more costs get passed on to the student) I eventually decided not to, because to be honest, my friend circle is vey small, and the food that is served there is quite mediocre. I didn’t think it was worth it.

I was happily reminded that my sorority was holding a sisters’ thanksgiving potluck, so I went to that instead, toting a bottle of wine as tribute. Even though I’m an alum, we’re a very small chapter, so all of us are pretty close. 

It was just a reminder of all the positivity that I’ve gotten from my sorority (especially after my little’s class crossed, and our initial struggles were over with). The lot of us gathered with a bunch of food, I got to see one of my pledge sisters for the first time in two years, and I spent more time laughing in those four hours than I did for the entire last week. It was just such a wonderful time. 

Those of my friends that went to the social came back and told me, unanimously, that it wasn’t worth the money–they’d run out of drinks early (and unlimited alcohol is one of the big draws in our events), the food was minimal in variety and lacking in quality, and they didn’t get to see much art at all (since the event was in an art museum, but closed after 2 hours). 

All that to say, I’m really thankful for my sisters and their warm and generous hearts. This is what I love my sorority for.
